All uniform badges have their postage cost calculated using an average weight badge and are charged as with any other item. 

Due to limitations on this, you may find that orders of greater than 200 uniform badges have a postage cost that exceeds expectations. If you should encounter this issue please contact us by email and we would be happy to discuss a partial refund on the order. 

There is no minimum or maximum order quantity of uniform badges unless otherwise specified on a product listing. 

Any order that contains any major items will be halted at check out and automatically referred to The Scout and Guide Shop for pricing. We will contact the customer with a specific quotation for shipping the order and on acceptance of the quoted price we will amend the order to include that price and confirm it to the customer for completion.
