Postage & Packing


January 2021. 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 11/2020 we maintained our same prices, and tried to have a "one price fits all", we regret it became no longer possible but you should still only pay one postage charge per order. January 2021 Royal Mail prices have gone up again (and again above the rate of inflation). To keep prices within the UK low we are now posting second class. Some parcel prices to the USA have gone up substantially.

If you order a book with a £2.70 (£0.95 + £1.75) postage charge and 6 postcards with £1.00 postage charge, you should only pay the £2.70.


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

"Second Class" postage is now used within the UK because of the differences in prices, but some larger orders may be posted first class. If you require "signed-for" please ask before making payment, and there will be an extra charge! Some larger orders will be posted signed for automatically.
There may be postage delays at peak times such as Christmas and New Year and also due to Covid 19 restrictions.


Please ensure you select the correct postage price at checkout, items will not be dispatched unless the correct postage has been paid.
