To keep postage prices as reasonable as possible we have done our best to accurately match actual postage costs with the postage price charged through our website. In some rare instances the price quoted and charged for postage may differ from the actual cost due to unforeseen circumstances. If this happens we will contact you to discuss, as we may have to charge you an additional amount to help cover the difference. In this instance you will have the right to cancel your order.

Q: Why does it cost so much to send a poster / print?
A: All our unframed posters / prints are sent out rolled and packed in tubes to prevent creasing. Mail services and courier companies are not keen on tubes - they like stackable things with corners! So the postage prices for tubes have always been surprisingly high. If you order multiple posters you'll find the postage doesn't alter much because it's sending the tube that is incurring the cost; the posters themselves don't usually weigh very much.
Q: How long will it take for my order to arrive?
A: Delivery times for orders vary depending on how they are dispatched. As a guide, you can read the 'How do you deliver orders?' question above, for specific timescales. Please note that it can sometimes take an extra day or two at busier times (including Christmas and Mother's Day) or if you live in a more remote area.
