  How long will my order take to arrive?

Delivery Times are given for each specific service option when placing your order but the following are general guidelines

Approximate delivery times are:

Royal Mail
By Surface Mail to Europe - usually 2-3 weeks, but please allow 4 weeks before enquiring
By Surface Mail to Canada or the USA - usually 4-6 weeks, but please allow 8 weeks before enquiring

  What Are The Postage Costs?

Please†see the†'Postage and Returns' page†for more information.

  How Can I Pay For My Order?

Orders via the website may be paid for either by using a Credit Card or Debit Card bearing a Visa, Mastercard, Connect or Maestro logo, or via the Paypal system.

  How Do I Return Damaged / Unwanted / Wrong or Faulty Items?

Please do not return items without contacting us first - see our 'Postage & Returns' page.

  I am ordering from outside the UK - Do I have to pay UK VAT?

Books in the UK are 'zero-rated' for VAT and there is therefore no VAT to be deducted.
DVDs, Calendars, Models, etc. do carry VAT.
If you are resident in the European Union, then we must charge you the VAT unless you are VAT registered in your own country and have supplied us with your VAT Registration details.
For customers outside the European Union we can deduct the VAT element of the prices quoted on the site. Unfortunately, we cannot do this automatically at the checkout at present, but the deduction will be made when the order is processed.

  I am thinking of Subscribing to your Email Newsletter. How often will I receive them?

We will only contact you when we have something important or interesting to tell you about like a special offer or a new publications. You will get on average an email every week depending on our publishing schedule.

  If I donít wish to continue getting emails from you how can I unsubscribe?
