What is the safest way to post a Gift Card to Cardyard

false
  • Use a postage stamp, and write your return address including the send code (also called `order code` which is a 7 character code specific to your package) on the envelope. If Royal Mail has a problem delivering your item to us, they rely on the return address to get the item safely back to you or if the envelope hasn't got sufficient postage, we are able to contact you immediately.
  • Use a sturdy envelope. We find that gift cards can easily break through the side of an envelope as it falls into a postbox, so make sure the envelope is strong, and secure the cards so they don't move, but please don't put sellotape over them as the residue is very hard to remove.
  • To avoid letters being held by Royal Mail, use a large letter stamp, just in case it is thicker than 5 mm which can happen if the contents move. If you want complete peace of mind, use Royal Mail special delivery which will refund you the value of the cards if they don't arrive. The other Royal Mail service that some people choose is signed-for and this provides proof of hand delivery. Whatever you do, don't forget to write your return address on the envelope.

We have a PO Box dedicated to gift cards which separates them from other company mail. The PO Box is operated by Royal Mail and can handle all Royal Mail deliveries such as signed-for and special delivery. The address is:

Cardyard
PO Box 842
EXETER
EX1 9WZ

Couriers such as dpd, yodel and UPS can't deliver to a PO Box, in which case send to head office:

Cardyard
6 Lyndhurst Road
EXETER
EX2 4PA
