Do you have a Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ) for Title Badges? 

Existing Titles

There is no minimum order quantity (MOQ) for an existing title of Title Badge. 
You can order just one Title Badge if that is what you need.
For an existing Title you can order any style or colour, or a mixture of the two, with no MOQ.

New Titles

Where a title does not exist we ask that your initial order is for a minimum of 25 badges. You can order any style or colour, or a mixture of the two.
Subsequent to your initial order you can order just one if you wish as indicated for 'Existing Titles' above.

What does post & packing (P&P) cost?

There are a number of P&P options available, depending upon the service required and whether delivery is within the UK.

For the UK...
We now offer free P&P on all orders over £70.00 (Royal Mail Second Class, single UK address, single delivery).

 

For orders under £70.00 there is a choice of…
£5.99 - Royal Mail 1st Class: you can expect delivery within 1-2 working days.
£3.99 - Royal Mail 2nd Class: you can expect delivery within 3-5 working days.

Please note that Royal Mail no longer guarantee their services and Royal Mail do not consider an item delayed until 3 working days after the expected delivery date for the service.

Of course, delivery timescales only start when the items in your order are in stock and we despatch your order.

All prices exclude VAT

Isn't your P&P expensive for just a few badges? 

Our Post & Packing charge are dependent upon where the order is being shipped to, its weight and the delivery timescale that is required.

Please see above for our P&P charges, or click here.

We have previously considered many different ways of charging for post & packing and have found that our current charging model is the most straightforward and widely accepted.

From our knowledge of the marketplace, our post and packing sharges are less than many other suppliers that are similar to ourselves.

Clearly, with this system, the post & packing charge is proportionately higher for orders of smaller quantities than for orders of larger quantities.

The post and packing charge is comprised not only of the postage amount that you may see on the package when it arrives, but also the weight, the time to pick and pack your order plus the materials used.  

The time taken to pick and pack small orders is only marginally less than the time taken to pack larger orders.

What is the price of Title Badges?

*** USE THE BACK ARROW TO RETURN TO THE PREVIOUS PAGE ***

Put simply, the greater the total quantity of Title Badges you order in your basket, the less you pay.

From 1 November 2019, we introduced Tiered Pricing (Quantity Discount) for all Title Badges.  The starting price of Title Badges is £1.74 each.  Cost savings can be made by ordering larger quantities.

Tiered Pricing (Quantity Discount) of Title Badges is determined by the TOTAL quantity of Title Badges that you place in a single order. Within the total order, it is still possible to order just x1 of a particular Title and get that at at reduced price if it forms part of a TOTAL larger quantity order.

Tiered Pricing has been introduced after careful analysis of the variation in costs that we incur, which is dependent upon the size of the order that we receive.  

For larger quantities that are placed in a single order we are able to achieve greater levels of efficiency and hence pass on the cost savings that we make by charging lower prices for larger orders.   

The discount tier that is applied is shown in a table just above where you enter the quantity of a particular Title Badge...

This table indicates the per badge price that would apply if the total quantity of Title Badges in your basket meets a minimum order quantity.

The total quantity of Title Badges is calculated as Titles and quantities are added to your basket.   The saving is automatically calculated and shown at the bottom of the basket with the original cost crossed out and the new discounted price placed beneath it...

*** USE THE BACK ARROW TO RETURN TO THE PREVIOUS PAGE ***

This discounted price is recalculated each time Titles are added to your basket and if a new tier of pricing is achieved then this is reflected in the new discounted price that is displayed.

The only addition to the prices shown is for P&P.   Please see above for our P&P charges, or click here.

All prices are irrespective of the mix of styles and colours that are ordered and exclude VAT.
