Postage Over Royal Mail Strikes

Royal Mail Strike Action :

Postal Workers will be taking part in strike action on the following dates:

26th and 31st August

8th and 9th September

Over these dates, only Special Delivery items will be delivered, and a large backlog of mail is expected, including Tracked 48 services.

What Are We Doing? :

To ensure we can still offer a reliable delivery service over this period, we will be making some adjustments to our shipping services between 23rd August and 11th September

  • We will be withdrawing our 'Standard Delivery' option for orders up to 375g for this period (Up to 15 badges max)
  • Reducing the cost of the Hermes Tracked (2 - 4 Working Days) shipping to £2.00 for packages up to 375g (Approx 15 badges)
  • Royal Mail Tracked 48 service will also be available for those who prefer using Royal Mail, however will be subject to delays over the strike period due to postage backlogs.
  • All other postage costs will remain the same and ship via Hermes as standard.
