Postage & Shipping Costs

Our postage costs are low because we tend to re-cycle packing materials. Please note that there is a minimum charge of £1.50 postage and packing for all orders.


Within the UK & BFPO.  The insignia that we send is insured in transit by the Royal Mail.  If the order total is up to £20, there is no extra cost for insurance within the UKIf your order costs over £20, we must insure it at extra cost.
In line with Royal Mail compensation limits:

Overseas Orders.  We normally use Airmail, which gives up to £46 compensation without tracking.  Packets valued over £46 will be sent as 'International 'Signed For'.

Parcel Weight

Costs include the weight of the packaging materials and are in grammes.  As a rough guide, a 100 gramme packet could consist of up to 3 or 4 Other Ranks metal cap badges or up to 11 large brass buttons.

Parcel Size

The Royal Mail has postal prices based on the size of the packets.  It is more expensive to send packets, but where possible we try to pack carefully to keep postal prices lower.  The packet size does not affect overseas mail or Insured 'Special Delivery' mail.  Postage & packing for 'Small Packets' within the UK starts at £3.

Overseas Mail

Items sent overseas are sent by cheapest airmail method.  Normally this is 'Airmail Small Packet' rate.  Postage is cheaper within Western Europe than to other overseas countries.
