FREE UK Second Class Postage!

Shipping & Packaging

Photograph of typical Studio Ides order, made with brightly coloured paper-based packaging. Includes multicoloured confetti, discount code, handwritten thank you card and independent business card.  Photographed on a bright blue background.

Processing Time -

I always try to get orders dispatched as soon as possible but due to the handmade nature of every piece, processing time, before postage, is 3-5 working days. 

Packaging -

I am proud to say that all Studio Ides packaging is fully paper based and recyclable, right down to the gummed paper tape sealing the boxes! If you are sending a gift straight to a loved one and would like to include a message with it, please leave it in the notes at checkout and I will pop the handwritten note in your order. Prices are never included in the packaging so no need to worry for gift-sending purposes!
Every purchase you make is carefully packaged in recyclable materials. Please reuse whatever you can and recycle the rest.

COVID-19 - Post drops are made once or twice a week. At the beginning and end of the 'working week'. International shipping is seriously delayed due to the Covid19 pandemic - items can take anywhere between 2 weeks and 3 months to arrive. All Orders are sent out via Royal Mail but please note there is a backlog with the Royal Mail and their estimated delivery times are longer at the moment. Please bear with them but feel free to get in contact with me about a parcel after 14 working days (UK) and 33 working days (International) if it has not arrived with you.
