Postage & Packing


October 2020. Please note changes to our post & packing policies and prices.

At the end of March 2020 Royal Mail increased their prices, again, above the rate of inflation. From then until now we have maintained our same prices, and tried to have a "one price fits all", we regret this is no longer possible but you should still only pay one postage charge per order.

If you order a book with a £2.50 (£1 + £1.50) postage charge and 6 postcards with £1.00 postage charge, you should only pay the £2.50.

We have cut the prices of most of the larger items as some compensation for this!


We normally try to dispatch items within 24 hours of correct payment having been received, excluding Sundays and UK holidays. If there are other times we will try to notify you here or on the checkout page.


If you have any queries, please contact us shop@ship-rex.com
