Update on Courier Services
Receiving letters or parcels does not pose a risk of contracting the corona virus, from validation the virus doesn’t survive for long on such objects that said, non-porous packaging such as flexible packaging made of plastic is far safer to use and to clean as traditional molecules can be absorbed by traditional paper packaging. 

Domestic Deliveries  
All Items are being delivered as usual however, for signed for deliveries signed and large parcels that do not fit through your letter box will be left on your doorstep.

International Deliveries
All forwarding offices except Wuhan are open for most courier companies, in the case of a lock down as in Italy Goods Circulation is allowed across the entire country, therefore no disruption will be caused on import & export. DHL, UPS & Fedex also operate their own their fleet both on the Ground and in the Air however due to limited air capacity and rising demand you are likely to experience adjusted prices for air freight.

Our two pence on Price Surges
We will not be raising our prices for our stock lines a single penny or our minimum orders and will not supply those we find are exploiting their customers during these uncertain times.
