Frequently Asked Questions

Where do you class as the Highlands & Islands and Channel Islands?

Highlands & Islands are defined as those UK address with a postcode in the following range: AB36-38, AB55-56,  BT, FK17 - FK21, HS1-9, IM, IV, KA27-28, KW1-17, PA20-78, PH19-50, TR21-25, ZE.

Channel Islands have the postcodes: GY & JE

Why do you charge more to send to the Highlands & Islands and Channel Islands?

Royal mail have a universal charge for all of the UK, but the couriers have different charges for certain areas.  We can send small light parcels by Royal Mail and therefore charge the same rate as UK Mainland. If an order contains any kind of solvent based product, eg. Oil paints or mediums, we have to send the parcel by courier. 

For heavier/larger parcels, or those containing items which Royal Mail will not take, we use a courier. All couriers impose charges around two to three times more than the normal cost of shipping to the UK mainland for post code areas listed above.  For this reason we have to add an extra charge towards this cost.

For certain extra large items, eg. some studio easels, there may be an additional charge on top of the price shown on the website. In these circumstances we will contact you directly to let you know.

Can you send my parcel on an Express service?

Unfortunately at this time we do not have an express service to the highlands & islands or the Channel Islands.
