IMPORTANT - INFORMATION ON POSTAGE RATES

The following information is to clarify our system of sending postcards to customers within the U.K.  All orders where the total cost of all the items ordered comes to Five Pounds (£5.00) or more will be sent POST FREE. We will use ordinary Second Class post, and a Posting Receipt will be obtained. There will be no additional postage charges for any other items on this order, unless you wish to use First Class post, or you require 'Signed for', or 'Special Delivery', where the relevant postal surcharge will be made - at cost. Items not qualifying for free post will be posted at the current 'second class' postage rate, and this cost will be added to the total payable. We do not charge for packing materials.

The above information is for customers within the U.K. only. All shipments to Foreign destinations will be charged for postage and this will be quoted before shipment. We will charge only for postage (at cost) - there is no charge for packing, or handling.
