Some on-line greeting card shops offer free delivery, why don’t you?
Unlike some of our competitors, we do not inflate the price of every birthday card to cover the cost of postage & packaging. The maximum delivery cost if you choose Standard delivery is only £1.95 however many birthday cards you order. The maximum delivery cost of gifts is only £3.95 if you choose Standard delivery regardless of order quantity.
Why do people buy birthday cards on-line?
Convenience is probably the main reason. The cost of delivery is nothing compared to driving to the shops and paying for parking. Another advantage is that no-one else has handled your card before you.
