You may specify a delivery address which is different from your invoice address, if, for example, you would like Signature Gifts Limited to deliver the Products directly to a friend, a relative, or to your place of work.

Heavier items such as the newspaper books are normally sent via a ‘sign-for’ service and urgent deliveries are always ‘sign-for’ service.

We cannot deliver to PO boxes if your delivery is via our courier service (all UK urgent and International).
