Q4 2022 / Q1 2023 - ROYAL MAIL STRIKES update

Dear customers,

We expect to be impacted by the series of strikes by Royal Mail staff during this time. Please checkout early and allow extra time for your delivery to arrive.

Throughout this period, we will continue to pack and dispatch in normal timescales (generally within a day); we are seeing over 90% of packages delivered as normal, although we have seen a UK delivery take up to 2 weeks. The impact on shipping appears broader than Royal Mail, as other couriers struggle with the increased demand due to packages being diverted away from Royal Mail.

Thank you for your understanding and we apologise for any inconvenience that is caused to you by these strikes.

The Foundryman


We ship worldwide & aim to dispatch within 1-2 working days of receiving your order.

If your country is not available at the checkout for some reason please contact us.

Costs for shipping are calculated based on weight, combined with your postal / zip code .

All costs are visible before you complete the purchase. All international orders under 2kg are sent via The Royal Mail, and we provide free tracking with your order.

All orders over 2kg are sent via external couriers, and again free tracking is provided.

All international orders require your email & telephone number for the courier service.

This helps to avoid any unexpected delays with courier companies being able to contact you directly to ensure delivery of your parcel. All UK orders over 20GBP are sent via a signed for service with Royal Mail.
