Delivery of printed.com designs
Our delivery times for both upload your own artwork and choose a design orders are still the same. We still have a standard 48hr turnaround time and for some products we offer 24hrs express delivery. Our delivery prices are the same too, so you don’t have to worry about being charged extra for an even better service! And we also offer the option of standard Royal Mail delivery as an economical alternative to our trackable courier service.
I want to send the design direct to my client; do you still offer plain packaging?
Most of our print is delivered in plain packing. So if you want to create something for a client using your artwork, go right ahead! They’ll never know where they came from.

What packaging do you use?
If you choose to use your own artwork for the job, we’ll send it out for you in unbranded packaging, so it can go direct to your client with no indication that the job has been outsourced! If you have ordered business cards, labels or stickers and used our printed.com designs, your order will be dispatched in our own branded packaging.
How do I know what time the courier will arrive?
When you get to the checkout select Anytime for delivery between 9am and 5.30pm. Or you can select from the following dedicated times for an extra charge: pre-9am, pre-10am or pre-12 midday. You won’t be able to see the exact time of delivery in the Tracking tab or app, but it lets you know if it is on the truck for delivery. If you can’t wait in for the delivery, consider having it delivered to your workplace or choosing a predetermined time.
When will I receive my package?
Our system will generate a delivery date before you place your order so you can be sure to make all deadlines. Check under Delivery information on the checkout page to see the estimated delivery date of your job. You can choose the express delivery option at this stage if it is available.
