Payment & Shipping Information


We aim to dispatch your order within 2 working days of receiving it, subject to product availability. Any orders placed after 12 noon will be processed the following day, any orders placed at the weekend will not be processed until Monday.

Elam Publication will ship your goods to you using the most cost effective mail provider. For smaller orders we use Royal Mail, and for heavier parcels we use a courier, who deliver to the door.

UK: The target delivery time is 3 working days for Royal Mail 1st class. Royal Mail 2nd class will take 4-5 working days. We use Royal Mail for small orders. For larger orders we are using Interlink, who will deliver to the door, next day delivery.

Europe: Please allow up to 7 working days for delivery (Monday to Friday) with the Royal Mail Air mail service. Local import duties outside of the European Union are payable by the customer. If in doubt please check with your local customs and excise department.

Rest of The World: For outside Europe, orders up to 2kgs or up to 5kgs for printed paper (2kgs for Canada), can be sent at a cheaper rate with Royal Mail's international economy service. Delivery times for the economy service are as follows: North America: Up to 6 weeks, South America, Africa and Asia: Up to 8 weeks, Australasia: Up to 12 weeks.

Some countries accept M-bag service for printed paper, between 1.5kg and 11kg. This service is generally cheaper than Royal Mail's economy service. Please contact [email protected] for quotes.
