Why letterbox friendly?
Have you ever had to:-
- Wait in all day for a delivery?
- Queue for hours at the post office depot to pick up a package?
- Pay extra to choose a delivery time?
- Rely on the goodwill of your neighbours?
- Risk leaving packages outside your house?
- Pay over the odds for more packaging than you need?
If you've answered yes to any of the above then you'll know how much this can take the shine off a gift someone may have sent you. At letterboxfriendly we want to extend the convenience of buying right through to the end delivery.Therefore all our gift boxes are specifically designed to fit through a standard letterbox.
Whats a standard letterbox?
The dimensions of a standard letterbox are shown in the diagram to the right. Approximately 90% of all letterboxes in the UK meet this standard.
Unfortunately not all letterboxes are standard and our largest pack size will not fit if the letterbox is very small. Therefore it may pay to check if you are unsure.
Despatch lead times
We will always despatch within 1 working day to ensure your package arrives as quickly as possible.We obtain proof of postage on all items we send.
All our gift products are sent out in letterbox friendly packaging which means we use standard Royal Mail services for postage. Our boxes are designed to fit through a standard letterbox; to check out the dimensions please follow the standard letterbox link in our shop. Please note, this does not apply to any sales where boxes only have been bought. For details on postage and delivery of such items, please see below.
Unless otherwise indicated, all items are sent out via Royal Mail Second Class Standard post although in most of our listings, you can upgrade to First class postage if an item is needed urgently.
Deliveries to different address
As a large proportion of the goods we list are gifts, we recognise that you may well want them posting to an alternative address. We can do this, but would ask that if you require such a service, you make payment via paypal. This gives you the option to change address as you go the payment screens (the one before you enter your paypal log on).
Packaging orders only
Our bespoke diecut boxes are sent out fully or partially flat-packed, meaning they will not unfortunately fit through your letterbox! We will look to send out these boxes by the most economic means, based on the weight and size of the package. This will either be Royal Mail Standard Second Class post or Standard Parcel post,which means lead time for delivery will vary depending on the service chosen. Details of postage will always be included on the individual listing. If you need to receive our boxes urgently, please contact us directly and we will do our best to select the most appropriate service for you.
