Shipping & Returns
Unless otherwise specified The Pen Place will send your web-order by Australia Post ‘Regular Mail’ (Parcel Post) for which the charge is $9.45 which covers packaging and freight. We have had success using this method of delivery through our retail and on-line store since 2003. Whilst making every effort to pack your order to avoid damage there is no way to track your order via ‘Regular Mail’ or obtain delivery confirmation. Whilst every effort is made to ensure prompt and efficient delivery, The Pen Place does not guarantee delivery. If this is a concern when ordering, The Pen Place has a range of other delivery options. If you wish your order to be sent by other means, when filling out your web-order in ‘comments’, please choose from these alternatives - Australia Post Registered Mail the charge for which is $11.95 (instead of $9.45), Express Post $16.00 (instead of $9.45) or if you would like your order couriered by Couriers Please (in Melbourne CBD only) a $20.00 dollar charge will be applied (instead of the $9.45) to the total of your order. For bulky items (leather desk blotters), extremely fragile items (such as large quantities of ink bottles) or interstate or international despatches The Pen Place may send you an email to clarify freight costs prior to processing your order to ensure your order is sent by the most appropriate method to ensure prompt and safe delivery.
For any queries regarding freight please do not hesitate to contact our staff who are happy to discuss.
The Pen Place is an environmentally responsible business who cares about the environment and wherever possible we try to use recycled packaging materials for your order to ensure maximum protection whist minimising our environmental footprint. These items will either be boxed or bubble wrapped (or both) and generally wrapped in brown paper. We welcome your feedback on our methods as we are constantly trying to improve our service in this area.
