The vast majority of orders we receive are made following receipt of the order. When you place your order with us, it is allocated a production slot in our workshop schedule. We aim for all orders to clear workshop production within 5 full working days (Mon-Fri) of being received. Your order will then receive a final quality check before being packaged and sent for mailing. You should, therefore, allow additional time of 2 working days for the post service to deliver your order.
