*Please not that is your order is heavier, we will have to send a separate invoice for the extra shipping cost.
VAT is already included on all orders to the UK. The new postage stamp will advise customs that VAT has already been paid and your order should fly through and reach you sooner Customs and import duties to other countries in Europe and Rest Of World are the responsibility of the customer.
All items have been weighted accurately (allowing a 2g tolerance) and you will be able to see the shipping quote in your basket before placing your order. Product weight can be seen on the “Additional Information” tab on each product.
If your order is quite heavy (over 2000g) we will contact you about any difference in shipping chargesand find the best most cost effective way to ship your order.
We are unable to take orders over the phone.
We aim to dispatch orders within 3 working days of receipt of payment. The majority of orders are dispatched same/next day but this cannot be guaranteed. (The Little Paper Tree’s current record from receiving an order to the order entering the postal system is 27 minutes)!
The majority of UK orders arrive next day but this cannot be guaranteed. Parcels are not deemed lost until 14 days after shipping to the UK.
Orders to European Countries can take 5 -10 days. For some countries it may take longer. Parcels are not deemed lost until 21 days after shipping to European addresses.
Orders to Rest Of World will take longer to arrive Royal Mail estimates 5 – 10 days but it may take up to 15 days. Parcels are not deemed lost until 28 days to Rest of World.
We do not “Complete” your order until the parcel has reached the post office and has started its journey to you.
Thanks Jeni all three parcels arrived. Fabulous customer service.

Loyalty Points and Rewards
As a thank you, and because we appreciate our loyal customers (and want to help you craft more) we offer loyalty reward points on every order. We started this scheme in 2016 so the more you shop – the more you save! But spending alone isn’t the only way you’ll be rewarded for your support. You can earn extra points by referring a friend or even by being a new customer and opening an account.
For each £1.00 you spend, you will earn 1 point.
- 1 point = 1p
- 50 points = 50p
- 100 points = £1.00
- 250 points = £2.50
- 500 points = £5.00
You must be logged into your customer account to start collecting your loyalty points.
- Open a customer account to earn 10 points straight away.
- Refer a friend – ask them to mention you at checkout and you both receive 50 points.
Each point is worth 1 penny (no monetary value).
All loyalty points are valid for 6 months. These points can be used with your next order or saved– but not on any sale items, and only one coupon can be used per order. You can always check your balance by clicking on Points and Rewards in your Account.
