Latest News


In the current circumstances I feel it prudent to state my position. I am very well and intend to stay that way! I am lucky that I work from home and have no staff and that I live nowhere near other people. Instead of visiting the Post Office to drop off my mail every day in future I will be visiting the Post Office only twice a week when they open at 7am thus avoiding lots of people. These coming months I will continue to work normally loading stamps on my websites and servicing orders. Mail services continue to run normally and even international mails are unaffected because most mail is flown cargo anyway. Can I remind my customers that their card is charged not at the time the order arrives but only when the order has been serviced. As usual I will confirm by email the date of sending.

Stay well!

This website opened for business in November 2006 and has always been protected by sophisticated SSL 128 bit encryption in the areas where your personal details and card numbers are placed. Since 2006 website security has moved on and now instead of just the two pages where your details are placed the entire website now benefits from SSL encryption. Thus on this front page depending upon your browser there may well be a padlock displayed giving you the assurance that your total "browsing experience" is totally secure when moving around this website. This was implemented August 2018. To see the certificate itself please click on the GLOBAL SIGN logo at the foot of this page.
