Delivery Terms & Details

How Deliveries Are Made & To Where

Signature Gifts Limited (trading as Historic-Newspapers.co.uk) will deliver the Products ordered by you to the address you give for delivery when you make your order. You may specify a delivery address which is different from your invoice address, if, for example, you would like Signature Gifts Limited to deliver the Products directly to a friend, a relative, or to your place of work.

Heavier items such as the newspaper books are normally sent via a ‘sign-for’ service and urgent deliveries are always ‘sign-for’ service.

We cannot deliver to PO boxes if your delivery is via our courier service (all UK urgent and International).

The status of any order can be checked at www.signature-gifts.co.uk/wheresmyorder

Delivery Lead Times

Order to delivery is dependent on the item chosen. For delivery lead times on specific items chosen, please check on the "Delivery" details on the relevant product page. At peak times, such as Christmas, deliveries may take a day or two longer. For UK orders (only), there is an Express Delivery option. This option prioritises your order to the top of the queue, and is despatched using overnight courier service.

Delivery Issues

In the unlikely event you do not receive Products ordered by you within 28 days of the date on which you ordered them; Signature Gifts Limited shall have no liability to you unless you notify Signature Gifts Limited by email at Key.Accounts@signature-gifts.co.uk of the problem within 40 days of the date on which you ordered the Products.

Unless you have cancelled your order prior to delivery, you will become the owner of the Products once they have been delivered to you. In any case, after delivery they will be held at your own risk and Signature Gifts Limited will not be liable for any loss, damage or destruction to the Products except insofar as it arises from an inherent defect in any of the Products.
