Order Turnaround

To offer a large range most products are ordered as needed from our suppliers.
Products kept in-store are those needed by local studios only.
Please check the product description on each product for more information.

The day you place your order will determine the time needed for us to receive the products from suppliers. Orders placed by Sunday night are usually shipped mid to late the following week, orders placed from Monday will take a few extra days.
If items are unavailable at our suppliers you will be contacted via email as soon as we receive that information.
Please Note: If you have been unsuccessful ordering products directly from suppliers, we too will be unsuccessful to obtain these, please email us an enquiry before ordering.

  • Customers will be notified within a reasonable time  if any ordered products are temporary unavailable or sold out.

  • Supplier ranges are so vast we order items on a regular basis, this will be shown as (example) 'Ready to ship 3-7 business days' in the product description. We endeavour to give an accurate as possible time frame which is to be used as a guide only.

Urgent and ‘Close to date’ needed Orders

Order turnaround times will still apply and this will not hasten the ordering process. Providing dates will help us keep you informed, especially if timing is tight. 

If an order is urgent, it is important to label it as such by making a note in the cart where it shows ‘Order Notes'. Please tell us the latest date you require the order to be delivered and we can keep a watch on it and contact you if necessary.
