International Postage Increase

Throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic, I have continued to ship internationally. My foreign customers have always made up the bulk of my customer base, and I feel incredibly loyal to them, and despite the uncertainty surrounding International post, I took the decision not to suspend sending parcels abroad. 

It is therefore with a heavy heart that yesterday I was forced to pass on the astronomical price increases Royal Mail have recently introduced. I have tried to increase them as little as I can, but there is only so far I can subsidise postage costs and remain a viable business.

A large part of the increase is a temporary COVID19 surchage, implemented due to the lack of commercial airliners around to carry post, and reflecting the fact it is costing Royal Mail a lot more to carry the parcels using freight services.

Rest assured I am constantly monitoring this surcharge, and if it decreases then I will be immediately adjusting my prices downwards to reflect the change. I've never made a profit on my shipping charges and this isn't going to change.

I fully understand that these increased shipping costs mean that most of you will not be able to justify paying them anymore, I only ask that you keep checking back, and don't forget me completely, as I do really hope that postage prices will be heading downwards again in the coming months.

Stay safe, stay well, and keep crafting :-)
