These are not ordinary people you see before you here (That's them on the right - the things on the left are old bags full of post). These are superhuman beings capable of harnessing and packaging daily deliveries of smiles every single darn one of those 365 days in any given year. And in a leap year - you've guessed it - they do it 366 times. Amazing. Powered by chocolate and good strong coffee there is no limit to the extent of their abilities. Hop on over to our Facebook page or Instagram if you want to find out more about this groovy gang.

The 4:45pm Shuffle

There's only one deadline every day at TIN Towers and that is marked by the arrival of the Nibbles lunch van laden with sandwiches, chocolate, crisps, sweets and all manner of other edible treats. Heidi and her team call at the studio every day whatever the weather to make sure that everyone in the studio is fed and watered....what's that you say? There's another van that comes every day? A red van? Oh....THAT van and THAT deadline. Righto, yes, I will tell everyone about that. So, the postman comes, every day, at aournd 4:45pm. At this time of day the studio is an oasis of calm and everyone is sitting around drinking tea and cracking jokes. Not. We are all running round like crazy people trying to make sure that everything is in the bags and accounted for so that the amazing people at Royal Mail can whisk it all off to your letterboxes. Phew. Time for chocolate. And if you want to see what that looks like, click play on the video above. It's quite silly.


We charge a flat £4.95 for our standard postage within the UK on all baskets. Standard postage uses the Royal Mail which aims to deliver all items within 48 hours of posting. Please note that this is not a guaranteed service and should only be used if you are not worried about when an item is going to arrive. This is particularly important around big events like Christmas when we really recommend you upgrade to Next-Day to avoid disappointment. We reserve the right to vary our carriers and timescales according to seasonal demand. 


Again, in the interests of simplicity we have a single flat rate, regardless of order value, but depending on which country you live in. The charge for this is £11.75 for EU and £19.50 for the World Zones 1 & 2.

This one is not quite a unicorn, but it's pretty blooming close. If it absolutely has to be there by a certain day then pick NEXT DAY at check out. Not only does this sound a klaxon in the studio, it will also bump your order up to the top of the queue and - if you checkout before 2pm - your order will be despatched by Royal Mail Special Delivery the same day, subject to artwork being completed and signed off.

Delivery is pre-1pm next-day and fully tracked all the way. A signature is required on arrival with your postman.

Before Mother's Day and Father's day, this one is a life-saver for all the last-minute Larrys and Lorraines. It is genuinely your get out of jail card. Order on Friday morning and be top gift-giver on Sunday because you know your Thisisnessie goodies will be on your doorstep on Saturday morning. No other service will guarantee that.

And at Christmas time, well you normally get two or three days to place an order AFTER the final posting day. And just when Royal Mail is in a meltdown with all the cheapskates who didn't go for guaranteed, you can sit back and let us take the strain. You might not get it next day but it will be there in time for Christmas morning.
