Do you despatch your consignments in neutral packaging?

We always despatch in neutral packaging.

Can you also arrange for neutral deliveries to our customers as well?

On request, we will despatch your items in neutral packaging direct to your customers without providing a consignor’s address.

Can you arrange neutral deliveries to our customers accompanied by our delivery paperwork?

Yes, no problem. If you send us your documents, we will arrange a neutral delivery as required.

Do you offer an express delivery service?

Goods ready for despatch by 15.00 can be delivered on the next working day by express delivery at extra cost.

When customers are in particularly urgent need of their goods, we can arrange for a courier service – which of course incurs an additional cost.

We can happily store non-personalised badges for you free of charge for orders of more than 25. The individual names can then be applied later on when you call them off.
