Delivery & Returns

How do you deliver my order?  

We want you to get your Culture Stories goods as quickly as possible. Culture Stories aims to process all orders within 24 hours. You will receive a confirmation email when your order is dispatched and we will inform you if there are any unexpected delays along the way. We use only trusted postal and courier services to ensure that your order gets to you quickly and safely.

Can I track my order? 

You can track your order using the link on your dispatch confirmation email.

Do you charge for delivery? 

As a small independent company we are not yet in a position to offer free shipping – but we are working on it! In the meantime there are fixed delivery charges for UK, Europe and Worldwide orders. For some specific items there might be delivery surcharge, particularly if they are oversized or require a courier. There might also be added split delivery charges for some countries, special oversized products or goods that come directly from an artist’s atelier. We always endeavour to make these charges as small as possible. Delivery pricing is always clearly marked on the website.

How long does your standard delivery take?

Your goods will be transported by a trusted postal or courier service, depending on where in the world you live. For orders with the UK delivery time is within 3 working days. For the European Union you can expect your delivery within 3 to 5 working days. For the rest of the world delivery takes 5 to 7 working days. For international orders going outside the European Union, your customs office might hold goods for checks or ask you to pay national sales tax. If you live outside the EU we will not charge you any sales tax when you shop with us, but Culture Stories cannot be held liable for your country asking you to pay national taxes or fees.
