Note : I can access the Post Office most days a week so cards will be despatched normally within one working day of receipt of payment. I will normally post goods the same day if cleared funds are received by me by noon (8.00am on Saturdays), sometimes posted same day even if funds are received up to one hour before the last post.

Note, unlike most of my sales, I cannot amalgamate postage on these cards as they just fit into the 'LARGE LETTER' category and putting other items together tips them over to the 'PACKET' rate which is double the postage
