Crafty Pig Designs use a total based shipping policy when charging for postage and packaging. Details of the way we calculate this can be found below.
We also allow collection of orders for local customers. If you wish to collect we shall refund postage if you leave a note in the comments box before you pay online.
PLEASE NOTE THAT NEXT WORKING DAY DELIVERY RELATES TO THE DELIVERY ONLY, YOUR ORDER WILL STILL TAKE THE SAME TIME TO PROCESS AS EVERYONE ELSE'S ORDER.
WE DO NOT OFFER AN EXPEDITED SERVICE.
Postage and Packing Charges:
please note areas with the following postcodes attract a surcharge with Parcelforce and we will send via alternative mail and there may be additional charges applied which will need to be paid before we ship.

We try to look after the environment as much as possible, and to help with this, we may use reclaimed and recycled materials as much as possible, especially for large orders and packaged items. Therefore larger items may not look as clean as a new parcel box, but it helps us to keep costs down for both ourselves and the customers, whilst helping to protect the Environment.
We use shredded paper for packing the boxes.
We would also recommend that customers re-use packaging where possible to further help protecting our Environment.
We may select different ways in which we dispatch our items.
In order to keep costs low and protect our Environment caused by pollution in transit, we may bulk dispatch parcels on the same day, this could result in your order being dispatched a day or two later than the currently advertised estimated dispatch time (current estimation is on the top of the home page).
PLEASE NOTE OUR TURNAROUND TIME RELATES TO TIME IT TAKES FROM CLEARANCE OF YOUR PAYMENT TO DESPATCH FROM US, IT DOES NOT MEAN YOU WILL RECEIVE IT WITHIN THAT TIMESCALE. WE USE ROYAL MAIL FIRST CLASS FOR ALL ORDERS UNDER 2 KILOS IN WEIGHT . WE USE PARCELFORCE24 FOR MOST OTHER PARCELS EXCEPT WHERE THEY CHARGE SURCHARGES AS LISTED ABOVE.
> We reserve the right to change the way we calculate our postage at any time.
> Due to postage being beyond our control customers should allow for an additional two days before raising a complaint of missing items.
By placing an order with us you agree to the terms and conditions set out above .
