Why do some of your products last for 16 months?
We often get asked why we produce 16-month diaries and calendars as some people consider the overlap a waste.
A 16-month system allows us to offer our customers a greater choice in when to start and end their current diary or calendar. These products can be used in line with both the academic year or the calendar year, depending on which suits your needs best.
Some customers prefer to run their calendar or diary through the school year (Sept to Sept), while others prefer the calendar year (Jan to Dec). Our 16-month products can be used either way and there is also a longer cross-over period to transfer all of your information from one to the other, preventing you from having to carry two diaries or to keep two calendars on the wall. Traditional calendars or diaries often provide little space to record the dates and information you are given for the new year. However, if you have already swapped to the new version earlier in the year, this won't be a problem for you.
Another key advantage of this system is that it cuts waste, reduces transportation and assists us with giving you lots of clever features that we couldn't provide at this price point if we had to create two versions each year. Ordinarily, publishers have to throw away countless numbers of calendars and diaries every year, but we don't have to because of our clever design. We introduced a curated 12-month range of products for the academic and the calendar year following customer feedback but by keeping our core range of products 16-months, we dramatically reduce our environmental impact, something that's very important to us and allows us to reduce costs that we can then pass along to you.
What are the differences between an academic year and a calendar year diary?
Our academic products commence in August, whereas our range for the calendar year begins in January. Both run for 12 months.
There are many factors to consider when deciding whether an academic or a calendar year product is the right choice for you. Traditionally, academic products are designed with students and teachers in mind, as they offer a fresh start at the beginning of the school year and ensure important study information is stored in one central location. Parents may also benefit from using an academic product to document school events and key dates and to ensure nothing is forgotten throughout the year. Alternatively, you may be starting a new job or simply just fancy a clean slate to help you get organised for the latter end of the year and the busy Christmas season.

If your order contains a mixture of stock and pre-order items, then the order will not be dispatched until all items are available. If you require the stock items to be delivered immediately, please contact customer services to discuss your options.
Can I amend my order?

Do you offer free delivery?
Standard delivery in the UK is free for all orders of £7 and over. If your order is under £7, shipping is £2.95. Shipping will take 2-5 working days for both free and paid delivery and will be sent by Royal Mail.
For orders sent to a UK delivery address, we also offer Express Delivery for an additional small cost. You will be able to choose your preferred service at the checkout.
When will my order be dispatched?
We endeavour to process and send out orders received before 2pm on a working day the same afternoon. However, please allow a little extra time for dispatch during our busiest times such as the start of the new season, September, Christmas and the New Year. We do not dispatch on Bank Holidays or weekends.
To check the current status of your order, please use the My Account tab at the top of the screen (this will work only for customers with a registered customer account).
Once your order has been dispatched, you will receive an email from us stating that your order is on its way. If your order is being delivered using our Express Delivery service, you will receive an email directly from the courier company advising you when the order will arrive with you. This email is likely to arrive the day after your parcel has been dispatched. Please read this email carefully as it allows you to manage your delivery just as you'd like it.
Postcodes that may take longer: AB, DD8 - 11, KW15-17, ZE1-99, GY1-99, JE1-99, PA20-40, PH49-50, HS9-99, PA41-49, PA76, PH41-44, HS1-8, IV1-20, 25, 30-32, 36, 41-51, 55, 56, KA27, 28, BFPO 01-999, IM1-99, TR21-25, BT1-99
Please ensure that you provide us with an accurate postal address and postcode for UK orders. Orders with malformed addresses are separated out of the standard order dispatch queue and will be processed more slowly. We may need to contact you to confirm your details and in this situation we hope that you will understand that we cannot keep to standard dispatch times. Customers who select the Express Delivery option which we are unable to fulfil due to an inaccurate postal address will not be eligible for a refund on their shipping costs.
Can I have a tracking number for my order?
Once your order has been dispatched, you will receive an email from us stating that it is on its way to you. If your order is being delivered using our Express Delivery service, you will receive an email directly from the courier company advising you when the order will arrive with you. This email is likely to arrive the day after your parcel has been dispatched. Please read it carefully as it allows you to manage your delivery just as you'd like it, for example, leaving your parcel in a safe place should you be out. Our standard delivery, which is free for all orders over £7, will be sent with proof of delivery.
If you are an international customer and have opted for Tracked Delivery, we will include your order's tracking details in your dispatch confirmation email.
What are your international shipping options?
All overseas orders are sent via Royal Mail’s Airmail service. This service takes approximately 7-10 working days from dispatch. The standard airmail service is an untraceable service which means unfortunately we cannot track the status of your order. We now provide an International Tracked service to some destinations (see list below) which we would recommend as it can be up to two days faster and provides a level of traceability. When arriving at the checkout, if the Airmail Tracked service does not appear, then we are unable to provide this service to your country.
Please note that sometimes delivery may take longer - it is impossible for us to give a precise figure as services differ all over the world.
If you are located outside of the UK, all orders will be sent with itemised commercial invoices. This includes all relevant details for your own country’s customs authorities. The customer is responsible for any additional fares or duties levied by customs officials. We cannot alter the wording on this label to avoid the payment of charges.
Overseas Delivery Charges
European Union via Airmail - £3.50
Rest of the World via Airmail - £6.99
European Union Tracked - £5.99
Rest of the World Tracked - £9.99
Standard Airmail delivery is available to most countries in the world. In addition, we offer a faster Tracked Airmail service to the countries listed below.
Upgrade to Tracked delivery to the following countries:
Austria, Belgium, Canary Islands, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden
Rest of the World

If your country does not appear on the above lists, then your order will be delivered by standard airmail.
Do you deliver to my country?
We are able to ship to most countries but delivery to some destinations may not be available. Please see our delivery charges page for updates.
If your country is not listed in the drop down menu during the checkout process, please email or phone us to discuss your order.
What are your UK shipping options?
We offer free standard delivery on all orders over £7. For orders under £7, we charge a small delivery fee of £2.95. Please note that this is an untracked Royal Mail service. Orders placed with standard delivery are usually delivered within 2-5 working days after dispatch.
Royal Mail will attempt to deliver your parcel once. If you’re not in, there are two options the Royal Mail may choose. They will either leave you a card and take the parcel back to the sorting office or leave your parcel in a safeplace. If they have returned your parcel to the sorting office you will then need to call to arrange redelivery or to pick up the parcel yourself. Royal Mail will hold your parcel for 18 days before returning it to us. If your parcel is returned to us, we may ask you to pay the additional postage incurred to have your parcel sent out to you again plus any charges incurred to us as a result of Royal Mail returning the item to us.
If your parcel has been left in a safeplace you should have a 'something for you' card which will indicate where the parcel can be found.
This is a 1-2 working day service (not available to all postcodes, e.g. Highlands and Islands). These orders are treated as Priority orders by our despatch department. Express Delivery orders placed before 2pm on a business day will be dispatched that day for delivery with 1-2 working days. We are not able to offer this service to deliver on a Saturday, Sunday or Bank Holiday. Our Express Delivery service costs just £5.95 and is sent via DPD.
Our Express Delivery service is a signed for service, so someone will need to be in to accept the parcel. If you provide us with your mobile number at the time of ordering, DPD will send you a text to notify you of the 1-hour delivery time slot. You can contact DPD to arrange alternative delivery or amend it via their app.
The tracking says it's been delivered but I don't have my parcel
Please check that it has not been left in a safe place or with a neighbour. If it still cannot be located please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your order number and tracking information and we will look into this on your behalf.
Royal Mail Safeplace
From the end of September 2022, if there is no recipient in to accept your parcel, the Royal Mail may choose to deliver it to a Safeplace location at the address, if the postman or postwoman deems that location to be suitable. In this case, they will also leave a “Something For You” card explaining where the parcel is located. If they are unable to find a suitable Safeplace and cannot deliver to a neighbour, they will return your parcel to your local Royal Mail Customer Service Point and leave a “Something For You” card at the address.
My parcel has been damaged in transit
We are sorry to hear this. Please take a photo of the packaging and contents and send an email to email@example.com letting us know what is damaged, quoting your order number, name and address. We will get back to you as soon as possible to rectify the problem.
