We are pleased to offer a drop shipping service for members of our artist members club (more info here) which means you can have printed gifts sent directly to your customers (UK mainland).
In this difficult trading period we have decided not to increase our prices by adding a surcharge if you only need one item printed. Hence the price you will pay will be the members-only price (no additional discount is possible).
There is going to be a surcharge for packing but our goal is to support you the artist and sustain our print company so we will only be covering costs and not making a profit on this service.
At this time we are not able to drop ship to Northern Ireland, Isle of Wight or any other isles off the coast of mainland UK. This may change in the future if we can offer an alternative to Parcel Force.
As a member of our artist members club then we are able to print and ship certain gifts direct to your customers within UK mainland only (subject to Parcel Force continuing to collect and delivery).
We can offer drop shipping only on printed giftware whose stock we can try and maintain so please see further down this page for the list.
Our drop shipping service requires you to have a positive credit balance in your account with us in order to have items printed quickly. This cuts out not having to spend time putting together a Paypal invoice, send and wait for payment.
We will endeavour to print and dispatch gifts within 1-3 working days of receiving your order (and artwork) although delivery times will add to this before a customer gets their order.
I think it would be expected, especially at this time, to say that delivery could be 5-8 working days from ordering.
If there is an unexpected problem (stock issues / artwork issues / balance issues) then we will contact you straight away.
The following products we will try and maintain good stock of. If there is any item not listed then please contact us in case we have stock to forfill your order:
The price of each item will be the members-price you see on the product range page e.g. £3.10+Vat for a mug. £7.05 for a large chinchilla chopping board.
There will be a packaging surcharge of 65p+vat per item to cover materials need to ensure safe delivery such as boxes, smash proof mug boxes, envelopes, tape...
We really didn't want to add any other surcharge to the item even though we would not cover costs on the sale of one item in order to help you and us maintain a steady work load. This may change in the future but we hope that this drop shipping model works for the majority of artists who sell online.
Parcel Force who collect from us daily and deliver to all UK mainland addresses although the time scales for delivery can be longer at the moment so customers have to be realistic with their delivery expectation.
We have two price bands depending on the size and weight of the gifts.
Band 1 - £4.85+vat - For small boxes and whose weight is less than 10kg e.g. 1-6 mugs, 1-6 large chopping boards, 1-200 coasters. This would suffice for most small orders.
Note: Highlands, Islands and Northern Island Delivery Surcharge - For any orders within the following postcode areas (IV, HS, KA27-28, KW, PA20-49, PA60-78, PH17- 26, PH30-44, PH49-50, ZE) then a delivery surcharge of £3.50 will apply.
Band 2 - £6.85+vat - For larger boxes and whose weight is 1-30kg e.g. 7-72 mugs, 24 large chopping boards.
Note: Band 2 is not available for Highlands, Islands and Northern Island
Small Parcel (< 2kg) £3.50+vat
