Delivery Information

Below you will find details of our delivery pricing. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Sacristy Press continues to process and dispatch orders as usual.

However, due to delays in the postal system, it may take a little longer than usual for your delivery to arrive.

Domestic UK deliveries via Royal Mail may be subject to minor disruption, including due to strikes.

International deliveries from the UK may be subject to significant disruption, depending on the destination. See Royal Mail’s International Incident Bulletin for more details.

Delivery times are approximate, and whilst we are usually able to deliver within the timescales listed below, factors outside of our control sometimes prevent us from doing so.

To work out how long your order should take to arrive, add together Print Time + Delivery Time, as outlined below.

FREE Economy delivery to the UK, USA and Canada for all orders of 2+ books.
FREE Economy delivery to the rest of the world for all orders of 4+ books.

For Christmas delivery deadlines, please see our blog.

International Orders

International orders (outside the UK) may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and related fees/charges in the destination country, payable by the customer.

EU customers will also be charged VAT at the rate of the destination country (except for Premium delivery, where VAT and duties are included).

Sacristy Press has no responsibility for these charges, and they are not refundable. If you refuse delivery, any shipping charges, import fees and return postage costs will be deducted from the refund.

Step 1: Print Time

We use a production process called print-on-demand, which means your books are printed once your order has been placed, specially for you.

Paperback books are usually printed and shipped within 2 business days of your order. Hardback titles are usually printed and shipped within 5 business days of your order. Sometimes lead times are longer, especially around Christmas.

Step 2: Delivery Times and Charges

Add the Print Time (above) to the Delivery Time (below). This will give you an indication of how long it will take to receive your order.

Books are usually dispatched by Royal Mail from the UK. If we can speed up delivery time considerably without increasing the cost to you, we may print and dispatch some international orders from the US or Australia. Premium delivery is usually by UPS and offers a tracked service to over 200 countries. In some circumstances we may use a courier instead of Royal Mail even if you select Economy or Standard delivery.

Very occasionally, our carrier charges an excess fee for delivering to remote or inaccessible destinations (such as parts of Africa). Where this occurs we will contact you to arrange payment of the surcharge or cancel your order, as you prefer.
