Delivery & Returns

Snippy Cow delivery, returns, refunds and cancellations policy.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Impact Summary (12/09/2020)

Product printing times are almost back to normal with the delivery estimates below being the average dispatch times.

Deliveries overseas, specifically North America, are delayed significantly still due to localised backlogs with postal routes. In the USA the USPS is experiencing delays on parcels due to the current pandemic.

UK deliveries are seeing some minor delays in places (particularly in Scotland) but deliveries usually arrive within 7 working days.

Dispatch Estimates

  • Prints: Estimated dispatch time is 5 working days from date of order.
  • Cards & Wrapping Paper: Estimated dispatch time is around 3 working days from date of order.
  • Other Items (stickers, masks, cookie cutters, etc): Estimated dispatch time is around 3 working days.

Shipping to UK

Orders typically take 3 working days to arrive but can take up to 10 working days to some locations.

Shipping to EU and Rest Of World (excluding USA)

Orders typically take between 10-14 working days to arrive but can take up to an additional 10 working days in some areas.

Shipping to USA

All items to the USA are delayed by up to 27 days due to backlogs at USPS entry points. All items to the USA are posted with the Royal Mail in the UK and are then handed to USPS for final delivery in the USA. Due to these delays we are seeing orders taking a lot longer than expected. The USPS statement is below.

Orders to the USA now come with a higher delivery cost so that we can ensure that you are able to track your item. Delivery costs are per item type, for example: If you order 2 prints you pay delivery once but if you order a print and a card you’ll pay delivery twice.

Due to the impact of peak volumes and limited availability or capacity of our United States Postal Service entry points (at US airports), we are experiencing heavy delays on our shipments. Transit data shows that USPS is experiencing major backlogs in these entry points, resulting for some volumes to experience delays of 6 weeks or more.
We are aware of the issues USPS is facing and where. We are working closely with USPS every day to get our shipments to the right entry points with the best capacity. While we are working hard to resolve this as quickly as possible, we are dependent on our partners. Unfortunately these delays affects both mail and parcel volumes. In addition to that we have noticed missing scans in the US, resulting in items frequently missing updates until they are sorted in the domestic centers of USPS.
Expected delay:
9 – 27 days

Please understand these big delays are unique to the USA and are completely our of our control.

We understand delays are frustrating and we’re sorry for any delays.


We offer free UK delivery on pretty much everything we sell at Snippy Cow. Each item is made to order which normally takes around 2 days (we estimate 1-3 working days) and then we dispatch orders with the Royal Mail.
