Royal Mail Strikes

Royal Mail Strikes

All orders are currently being posted tracked for peace of mind however due to Royal Mail strikes there are delays occurring.

Prioritised Mail: Special Delivery & Tracked 24 

We recommend upgrading shipping to either Special Delivery or Tracked 24.

If your order has been dispatched but tracking is showing Royal Mail haven't received the item yet we do ask you to be patient as we have noticed it is taking a while for parcels to reach Royal Mails systems during the strikes. 

Royal Mail will not be delivering letters on strike days with the exception of Special Delivery. This means when placing an order for letter sized items they will not be delivered on strikes days. This includes:

  • Sticker Sheets
  • Letters To Santa
  • Santa Letters
  • Reindeer Food 
  • Colour In Cards
  • Greetings Cards

We have added a special delivery option at check out as they are prioritised but please be aware that there could still be delays even when choosing Special Delivery. 

Last dates to order recommended by Royal Mail

Sunday 11 December: Tracked 48

Thursday 15 December Tracked 24

Tuesday 20 December: Special Delivery

 We recommend purchasing as early as possible to avoid any disappointment, we cannot guarantee a date your order will arrive. 

All orders are currently being dispatch next working day. 

Thank you so much for all the patience, understanding and most importantly the support you've given us so far this Christmas time!
