Our last posting date before Christmas will be Wednesday 15th December. Our mail is sent second class Royal Mail. This should hopefully reach you in time for Christmas, if you are based in the UK, although we don't use a tracked delivery service.
If you are based outside of the UK, please make sure you order your subscription as early as you can, we would suggest no later than 5th December, in order to help us get your books to you on time.
The first book in your subscription will be dispatched from our London office. We do the post once a week, so your first book may take up to two weeks to arrive, if you are based in the UK, and longer if you are based outside of the UK.
All subsequent books in your subscription will be mailed from our mailing house. These are generally sent out in the second week of the month, but this can vary.
We are experiencing some postal delays to certain EU countries at the moment, due to the UK leaving the EU, so please bear this in mind.
Orders of backlist books are mailed from our London office, and these are mailed once a week, depending on stock. If we have to order more stock from our warehouse, it can take between 3-4 weeks to fulfil your order.
