I ship out 99% of items the same day but as a one-man operation there are a few days a year when I am away from base on travel, in which case I am forced to delay sending orders until I get back.
That's the reason for the delay posted on the site at the moment. I'm sorry but I'm probably hundreds if not thousands of miles away at the moment so I'm not in a position to make any exceptions.
I apologize for the inconvenience and I thank you for your patience.
Obviously the delivery 'clock' starts on the date mentioned above, so if the Shipping Calculator says it will take 2 business days to reach you then that's measured from the date that I will actually ship your order.
If you have placed an order and cannot wait for me to send your item then you are welcome to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request that I cancel your order so that you can place it elsewhere.
For direct credit card payments (so excluding PayPal payments) your card is not charged until I ship the item, and cancelled orders will not be charged (although you may see a temporary hold on the funds applied by your bank which they should remove after a few days).
Feel free to contact me using the link at the bottom of the page if you have any concerns or questions.
