Note re Postage
Regular visitors to my listings will know that I always try to offer affordable postage
I am now using Royal Mail’s ‘Printed papers’ service which is still the cheapest way to send catalogues and if you purchase over 5 items I am happy to combine postage wherever possible ( allowing for the postal service weight bands and restrictions) to reduce the cost to you.
Unfortunately it is not viable to combine postage for less than 5 items because of the way the Royal Mail costs are scaled.
Please be assured that I continue to strive to offer you the best customer service
