We were saddened to see the extent of the royal mail postal strikes over the pre Christmas period for 2022.

We send larger items via DPD, DHL and DX so cushions, lampshades, fabric, wallpaper and candles will not be affected by these strikes.

Royal Mail orders

Please see updates via the royal mail website here

We send out greeting cards and wrapping paper orders via Royal Mail 2nd class postage. This is the free postage offer on the website.

What we are doing to help reduce times for customers

  1. We are working closely with our warehouse to make sure that processing times are as short as possible. Never more than 2 working days, they will often dispatch the same day the order arrives if before noon.
  2. For this Christmas period, we’re introducing a tracked 24 option for cards and wrap, at £3.50. As royal mail have said they will prioritise tracked 24 delivery. We do not think any orders sent via tracked 24 will arrive within 24 hours but think they will arrive with you significantly sooner
  3. We’re upgrading large stationery orders to send out with DHL, stationery orders over £45 will go out via DHL and not royal mail


We send our parcels within the UK via Royal Mail, DX, DHL or DPD. We choose the most cost effective and efficient delivery option possible. Delivery can take between 2-10 days from point of order. Please note, some of our delivery companies are struggling with delivery time due to covid and staffing issues which is out of our control.  Sometimes items can be delayed.

Items in stock usually arrive within 7 days, lampshades are made to order and can take up to 14 days to arrive

We can send parcels via express next day delivery, we aim to dispatch within 1 working day and the parcel will be with you within 2-3 working days. If you need your items sooner please email or phone the studio on 020 8465 9819 and we will try to help.

Please note, some of our delivery companies are struggling with delivery time and due to issues outside of our control sometimes items can be delayed.
