All items are shipped second class UK mail in order to keep shipping charges to a minimum for you. Cards are despatched within 1-2 working days, however, as all canvas are handmade to order for you these are shipped within 5 working days. If you need an item urgently and you are not sure if it will arrive in time, please contact me directly and I may be able to either rush this through for you or able to arrange local collection to save on shipping times.
