I have ordered a personalised item. When should I expect delivery?
A: As these are made-to-order products based on the unique information you have provided us at the time of order, you should expect delivery of your order within three to four weeks from when your credit card has been debited. Shipping can sometimes take up to 8 weeks during busy time periods.
Once your order is received in our warehouse, we allow two to five business days for delivery of your personalised item by Express E-Parcel. (Please note that your credit card is always debited the instalment amount selected at time of order.)
If I order a collection by subscription, how will subsequent issues be shipped?
A: Usually, each issue in a collection is debited and dispatched separately to you, every month. All subsequent issues will be debited to the same credit card as the first issue.
