Delivery and Exchanges

Delivery & Exchanges

Our standard delivery times are as follows:

UK Mainland – please allow 14 working days for making time and travel. If we can get things to you faster we will! If you need something urgently please get in touch and we will do our best to get the item/s to you for a specific date

Delivery Charges

Free P&P on orders over £50

Standard UK 2nd class via Royal Mail (with eco friendly packaging) £2.99 on orders below £50

Some items incur more postage charges due to their packaging etc so these will be shipped via Royal Mail 1st class at a charge of £6.95

Stock availability

We try hard to keep a small stash of most products (except commissions) so aim to dispatch them to UK customers within 14 days. But, as we are a small company (it’s just Helen with a bit of family support) who make items in small batches or even to order, we cannot guarantee that products will be ready for immediate distribution. The nature of the work, and the processes used also means there are occasional production glitches (usually equipment failure or problems during the firing process). If there is a delay with your order you will be notified by email and given a new estimated delivery time and the option for a refund if you decide the product will arrive too late for your needs.

Travel Time

Goods will normally be delivered to you within 1-4 days of being dispatched from Helen Russell Creations (you will get an email when the order has been completed). Unless otherwise stated, shipment is by Royal Mail second class

If you need an item for a specific date please let us know! We will try our best to accommodate you.

We will deliver the goods to the premises you specify on your order. Please check the name and address you have given us carefully as we cannot accept responsibility for loss or damage if you instruct the delivery company to leave the goods unattended or if you have provided us with an incorrect address.

If you are not in when a delivery is made Royal Mail will follow their usual delivery procedure – generally taking it to a central depot or local post office for collection. If a parcel is returned to us due to non-collection we will need to charge you to ship it again. Helen Russell Creations cannot be held responsible for Royal Mail’s actions.

Breakages & lost items

We post our products all over the UK and do our very best to make sure they arrive in good condition. In the unlikely event your item is damaged or faulty when it arrives, please report it to us within 48 hours by email or telephone 07889272524 so we can resolve the problem as quickly as possible. Please do not throw the item away until we have spoken to you! We will need a quick photograph for our records so we can contact the shipping company. After 48 hours following delivery Helen Russell Creations cannot accept responsibility for any losses.

If your order doesn’t arrive within the expected postal timeframe please get in touch using the same contact details above and we will try to get to the bottom of things

  • Sale or wonky sold as seen (seconds) items may not be returned (items discounted from their original price)
  • Personalised items that are specially made, or ordered, with your choice of name, materials, message or other customised aspect that makes the item unique to your requirements and therefore cannot be resold
