Whether you’re ordering an item from The Pen Shop to go to an address in the UK or overseas, all our delivery information is here.

Have we got the right Delivery Address Details?  

When you place your order with us, please fill in the delivery address details for your order – and then take a moment to check and confirm they’re correct.

We can’t be held responsible for any items that don’t arrive, due to our being given the wrong delivery address.

What are Dispatch and Delivery Times?

You’ll see that we talk about dispatch and delivery times on this page. Dispatch refers to the time between when we receive your order and when your order leaves us to be sent out for delivery.

Delivery time is when your order is expected to arrive at its destination.

What might increase your Dispatch and Delivery Times?

Are you Personalising your Item?
If you have chosen to engrave or emboss an item in your order – or have requested a nib exchange – this can add 2-3 working days to your order.
Please note that it isn’t possible to pay for these items to be delivered faster.
We will dispatch your personalised items using the appropriate delivery method for the order value, once the personalisation is completed.

Online Only Items
Online Only items on our website are dispatched from our suppliers. This arrangement can add 2-14 working days to your order.

Each product page for our Online Only items has a guideline on dispatch timings.
Please note that we’re unable to offer either Next Day Delivery or Gift Wrap on any Online Only items during our checkout process.

Bank Holidays
Any orders placed on a Bank Holiday will be dispatched on the next working day.
