Shipping changes within the UK

Hi everyone!

Due to a increase in postage prices recently we've had to change our shipping options.
Up until now we've shipped all parcels within the UK using first class recorded delivery but due to the price increase we can no longer off this for our $4.50 shipping rate. From now if you're in the UK you'll have a choice between regular first class postage for our original rate $4.50 (+ $1 for additional items) or to opt for the recorded delivery for $6.50 (+ $1 for additional items).

Both First Class and Recorded Delivery aim to get your parcel to you the day after it is posted the difference is that Recorded Delivery requires a signature on arrival. This can be both good and bad. It adds extra security, knowing your parcel can't go missing (though we've never had a parcel get lost so far [touch wood!], always get certificates of postage and will of course replace anything that does go astray) however if noone is in to give a signature then a recorded parcel has to be returned to a sorting office until it can be redelivered so it can actually take longer to get your items and it is of course more expensive. 

Up until now we've sent everything via Recorded Delivery just for the added security however with price increase which came in April we thought it was more fair to let you choose what you wanted, instead of charging everyone more.

For now our international postage rates are staying the same but unfortunately this too may be subject to change in the future.

Thanks for reading this, sorry it isn't the most exciting of posts! If you have any questions we'd be happy to help however we can! :)
