POSTAGE for UK customers

STAMP orders are POST FREE (ordinary 1st class mail at your risk, orders over £250 sent Special Delivery with insurance).

We charge for postage based on the value of the total book order (broadly, more books or bigger books cost more to post).

Basic postage for books is automatically calculated on your order total, on the checkout page.

Postage for a book order :

  • up to £15, delivered in the UK costs £3 (by 1st class Royal Mail) ,
  • up to £30 costs £5 (1st class Royal Mail),
  • up to £99 costs £8 (1st class Royal Mail depending on weight),
  • up to £150 costs £9 (Royal Mail or contract parcel),
  • any bigger parcel over this amount costs a flat £10 (Royal Mail or contract parcel) (excluding any "postage supplement" on the couple of very heavy publications on the site where this charge is advertised).

As ordinary mail, these books are mailed with a certificate of posting, but sent at your risk and are not tracked or insured.

If you require special delivery mail for tracking and insurance, this costs £7 extra, and is an option you purchase in addition to the standard delivery charge.

Remember, delivery for a larger parcel of books costing any amount over £150 costs a flat £10, no matter how large the order! Useful and economic for larger book orders when you are building a library.

Insurance for UK Delivery


Books and stamps are normally delivered in the regular 1st class mail or ParecelForce basic service, and sent at your risk. If you do require insurance or possible faster delivery, we can send by Royal Mail Special Delivery (or courier insured packet if over 2 kilos). This service costs £7 and should be ordered at the time of your order. Just purchase this "Insurance for UK Delivery" item and this gives you insurance cover and possible faster transit.

Remember, books and stamps are sent AT YOUR RISK in the mail, unless insurance is paid for at the time of your order.
