Due to the horrendous price rises Royal Mail have introduced for Air Mail services we have had to revise our postage fees for overseas deliveries as follows;
1st Class Letter - £1.50 (cigarette cards, single trade cards etc)
1st Class Packet - £3.00 (A4 pictures, programmes, card sets etc)
Rest of the World
1st Class Letter - £2.00 (cigarette cards, single trade cards etc)
1st Class Packet - £3.50 (A4 pictures, programmes, card sets etc)
The above prices are for one item, unfortunately we can no longer offer our multiple items for the same price deal and multiple items will be based on weight.
For smaller items such as cigarette cards, individual trade cards, phone cards etc the postage cost will not increase from the standard as the added weight will not be significant enough to move the weight of the package out of the lower weight band that Royal mail use.
The same for lighter items like A4 pictures, for example if you buy 5 x A4 pictures these will have little impact on the revised price as the weight difference will not necessarily take it out of the £3.50 price band, however if the 5 items you purchase are for example, programmes, this will significantly increase the weight and will then need extra adding on dependant on which weight band the revised parcel falls into
Therefore if you do purchase multiple items please wait for us to adjust the postage on the invoice before paying and we will adjust the invoices accordingly per invoice dependant on the contents of the order, we will though try and keep the costs to a minimum and we usually charge less than the actual cost to us from Royal Mail.
As mentioned above some of the above prices are actually near enought the same or even LESS than Royal Mail charge for their Air Mail services, for example, for a Large Letter weighing 100g Royal Mail charge £2.93 for Europe and £3.86 for Rest Of The World so we are subsiding that to try and minimise the cost to you the customer!!
International orders over £25.00
Due to a number of "questionable" complaints by some international buyers as to them not recieving their orders it has become necessary for us to charge for a trackable service on high value orders.
We realise that this can massively increase the cost of the postage (Royal Mail charge £5.15 extra for this service) but we can not continue to refund lost orders if buyers do not take this service. If you do not wish to pay the extra that is fine but we will not be able to send the order and it will be refunded.
International orders - heavy magazines
For the same reasons as above (i.e dubious non receipt claims) we can no lonfer send heavy magazines via standard Air Mail but instead will only send them if a Signed For service is paid for.
Some buyers have queried why an A4 picture should be included in the Large Letter section as it is so light, the problem is although the picture itself is light and falls well within Royal Mails smaller weight band the packaging we put in with it (cardboard insert) takes it up to the second weight band.
IMPORTANT - THE ABOVE ONLY APPLIES IF YOU WAIT UNTIL WE HAVE COMBINED ALL OF THE ITEMS ONTO ONE INVOICE, IF NOT ADDITIONAL CHARGES/ORDER REFUNDS WILL BE INCURRED. (See Multiple items section)
