Deliveries during the festive period
My order has not been dispatched yet, when will it arrive?
During our sale period (20th December – 7th January) we receive a high volume of orders. Due to the holidays within our own organisation and our delivery partners, we are currently asking that up to two weeks is allowed for orders to arrive. All orders are sent via Royal Mail either 1st or 2nd class depending on selected method at checkout – these are not tracked services. Please note that we cannot guarantee that orders will be received within 1-2 working days of dispatch for first class and within 3-4 working days of dispatch for second class.
The item I want says ‘Not Available’ and I can’t add it to my basket, when will it be available again?
A small number of our items may be low in stock and due to the volume of orders being placed during our Christmas and sale periods, some items may go out of stock online. We cannot guarantee an item will become available again but we endeavour to update our stock levels as quickly as possible.
My delivery note says I should have received complimentary pencils with my order, but they’re missing?
Our complimentary pencil offer is only available while stocks last, due to the high volume of orders over the busy Christmas and sale periods we cannot guarantee their availability.
My account status says the order is complete, but there's been no correspondence as to despatch dates, estimated delivery times and it has not arrived yet.
The completed status on your online order means that your order has been dispatched from our distribution centre. All our orders are sent via Royal Mail 1st or 2nd class depending on the method selected at checkout and this is not a tracked service.
Can I upgrade my delivery method to a courier/special delivery service?
Yes you can, please call us at our office on 0131 556 4394 before placing your order to arrange a quote for delivery. We can only accommodate these requests up to Friday 21st December at 2pm. Please note once an order has been placed online, we’re unable to upgrade the delivery service.
