All items are made to order and our aim is to despatch goods within 4 weeks of receiving the order. House Signs have a minimum lead time of 8 weeks, though at busy periods this can be longer. If you wish to confirm the current lead time for an item please get in touch, likewise if you would like to know if we can despatch by a certain date please contact us. If for any reason we are not able to despatch your order within the above stated times we will contact you to advise when we are able to do so.


Delivery charges are calculated based on the weight and size of each item ordered.  The combined weight of all items in your shopping basket will determine the final delivery charge at checkout.  We use Royal Mail and Parcelforce, and ALL items are despatched using the Signed For service.  We currently ship within the UK (including Isle of Man) and ROI. 

Please note that we take great care in packaging our products to ensure that they arrive with you in perfect condition.  Any damage to your order, which has occurred in transit must be reported to us within 24 hours of receipt of your goods.  Once we have received the damaged goods (or sight thereof) we will issue a full refund or make arrangements for replacements.
