Personalised Items
All care and effort is always put into our personalised products. Each one being hand-assembled and packaged up for customers. In order to ensure that we offer the best possible service, and deliver the most appropriate caricatures our estimated production time is 10-12 working days. These times do vary and this page will be updated accordingly. In most cases we are able to provide a proof photo before this date, however, please allow for this production time when considering an order.

Personalised Creation Confirmations
Once a personalised figure/s order has been assembled, we will email a proof photo for your confirmation. Please ensure you check you have recieved an order confirmation when you place your order, as the proof photo will be emailed in the same way. If your order confirmation email goes to your junk folder, or gets caught in spam filters, we highly recommend adding our email address to your safelist to ensure you don't miss the proof photo.

Until we recieve confirmation for your personalised figure, we cannot dispatch, so if you are hoping to recieve your order in the minimal possible production time - it's important that we hear your feedback as fast as possible so we can continue your order process.

Please note that the production and delivery time estimates for your order do not include time awaiting responses from proof photos or revisions that may be requested thereafter.

UK Delivery

Here is a list of the postage options available to UK customers and the estimated delivery times according to the Royal Mail website. Please note that these times are estimated.

Worldwide Delivery
We do ship Internationally, worldwide, but it is worth noting that the closer your country is to our offices in the UK, the faster your item will arrive. We offer two International Postage options, Basic and Premium. Basic Intenrational is always posted with Royal Mail and Premium International will vary depending on the location and size of the parcel. Below are a breakdown of the options available to our International customers, based on the courier websites. Please note that these times are estimated.
