    Delivery Costs & Delivery Times

    Speed and quality of delivery is very important to us; we want you to be more than satisfied with our service. We make every effort to dispatch orders on the day of receipt, if received before 1pm, Monday-Friday. We normally use Royal Mail for orders weighing less than 2kg and a courier service for ones weighing more.

    Our standard delivery means that UK customers should receive their goods 1-3 days after dispatch, other European customers within 7-14 days, and other customers should receive their goods 7-21 days after dispatch. UK customers can also use our next working day service on orders placed before 1pm Monday to Friday.


    How we calculate shipping charges

    To make it easy for you to see the amount of shipping you will pay, the site automatically calculates it for you in the shopping cart before you complete your order. However we have supplied the following tables so you can see, in advance, how we calculate shipping.

    We calculate shipping based off the weight of your item(s) and your order's destination. To work out an estimate of your shipping costs, check the table below to find the weight of your item(s). Then locate your country and find the relevant weight, underneath that there will be an estimate of the costs.

    Badges, stickers and other small items - 50g
    A single T-Shirt, CDs, DVDs, Games, Belts and Buckles - 250g
    Calendars, Towels, Posters, Books, Scarves, Glasses and Mugs - 499g
    Hoodies, Jackets, Bags, Backpacks and Large Toys - 749g
    Skateboard Decks - 999g
    CD or DVD Collectors Edition Box-Sets - 1499g
    Vinyl Collectors Edition Boxed Sets - 1999g

    For example, if you wish to order a t-shirt and a hooded top your total weight would be 999g and would fit within the 750 - 999g shipping category. Because of the huge number of product types and weights this list is only a guide. The checkout will accurately calculate the appropriate shipping charges before you order.

    UK customers can also pay an extra £5.00 per order to use our next working day service on orders placed before 1pm Monday to Friday.
