Studio Chuffed is still open. I already work from home so nothing has changed there. My partner is also now working from home for the foreseeable.
Any ‘large letter’ orders (orders not containing bow ties) will be shipped as usual, within 3 working days of your order. They will be posted via a post box instead of the post office.
Orders containing bow ties will be posted via a post office once a week on a Friday (or Thursday when there's a bank holiday). If you order later in the week your order may not be shipped until the following Friday, as I make my bow ties to order.
These two changes are to reduce the risk to both ourselves and our local post office workers.
All bow ties will therefore be 10% off their usual price until the situation changes, to make up for any delays.
Due to various lock-downs across the world, I cannot guarantee how long items will take to arrive. Please be patient if your order is slow to arrive, it may take 1-2 months at present for the worst affected countries.
Please be assured that at present I do not have the virus, and even so it is understood that the virus can not be transmitted via parcels or letters. Regardless, whilst handling your orders I will continue to wash my hands regularly and use hand-sanitizer, as I have always done.
This is a hard and scary time for everyone. Many small and independent businesses are struggling with a huge fall in sales, myself included. If you’re able, please show your support for your local and online businesses anyway you can. A small purchase can make a huge difference, and if you can't buy, consider telling friends about them, or sharing them on social media.
If there are any changes I will issue a further update via social media and newsletter and this page will be updated.
Stay safe everyone!
