All autographs are shipped with plastic backers, padded with cardboard inside custom made postal mailers. ALL autographs are posted by a a postal service requiring a signature on delivery. Royal Mail Recorded or Special Delivery in the UK or Airsure (where available) or International Signed For for international orders. Very large international orders will be sent by UPS or FedEx. We only ship internationally by Airmail. No Surface mail, sorry. International customers, please do not ask us to reduce shipping invoice values for the evasion of tax or import duties as we will not do it. Thank you for your understanding.
Important Notice. German Customers. We do not ship to Packstations in Germany. Packstations do not have the facility to accept parcels shipped Signed For and as we only ship using this method we cannot therefore ship to packstations. A residential address must be used for all German customers.

IMPORTANT. We do not ship to South American countries due to the aggresive import taxation on Signed For commercial items posted to certain countries there. PLEASE do not order from this site if you are a resident in South America as we will have to cancel your order. Currently we cannot remove South American countries from our checkout so even though it is actually possible for you to physically place your order, we will not fulfill your order and will refund you. This issue is only with South American Countries. We are sorry that blocking South American customers has become necessary.
We default UK shipping to Royal Mail Special Delivery for orders of five autographs or more. Royal Mail Recorded gives cover for loss only upto £46 as at 2nd April 2012. Orders of three autographs or more will generally cost more than £46. Hence the switch to Special Delivery. Special Delivery insures your order up to £500 for the basic service (plus priority delivery and tracking). We want your order to arrive safe and sound and will always endeavour to achieve this in the most practical, safe and cost-effective way for you, our customer. UK VAT was added to most inland Royal Mail shipping charges in April 2012. We have had to pass these costs on in our shipping charges to customers.
At this time, the maximum number of autographs that can be ordered at any one time on this website is 160. If you wish to place an order for more than 160, please ask us and we'll provide shipping quotations. For orders over 25 pieces, we have capped the shipping costs for both UK and International orders. Each autograph will be bagged, but will not come with an individual plastic backing board. This keeps the weight and shipping costs down dramatically. Your autographs will be fully protected and we hope that you will appreciate the shipping savings.
