Have you downloaded a plan and need it printing?
Yes, you can print large plans in sections on an A4 printer and stick them together, but wouldn't you much rather have the plan printed out in full size on lovely 90gsm paper and sent to your door, uncreased in a hard cardboard tube?
Our plan printing service gives you just that:
1. Simply select the number of plans and/or copies you'd like.
For example, if you would like 2 copies of Plan A and 1 copy of Plan B, enter 3 in the quantity box.
2. Add your selection to your basket and proceed to checkout to pay.
3. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the plans attached (.pdf files only please) or links to where we can download the plans, making sure to quote your Name and Order Number.
Please Note: The maximum printing width of our plotter is 841mm (33-1/8"), so if both the width and length of your plan are larger than this, we won't be able to print it!
As long as one dimension is less than 841mm, we can print the plan as the plotter paper is on a very long roll.
Most orders are shipped via Royal Mail’s Tracked 48 service.
For larger or heavier orders, we use UKMail/DHL to deliver your package on a Next Working Day service.
Shipping is free to UK Mainland addresses for orders over £30.00, otherwise we charge £6.00 for Royal Mail Tracked 48 parcels and £12.00 for UKMail/DHL Nest Working Day.
Items that fit within Royal Mail International Tracked Medium Parcel parameters (59cm x 17cm x 15cm weighing less than 2kg) can be sent to most countries outside the UK.
For example up to 3 of our smaller 18” wingspan kits can fit into one of these parcels.
A parcel like this currently costs around £14 to Europe and around £18 to send to the USA and will take up to 3 weeks to arrive. This is because Royal Mail hands over the parcel to the local Post Office service for your country who have to clear it through customs and then deliver it to you.
The Royal Mail tracking code also transfers over to the tracking for your country’s postal service.
For items that do not fit within Royal Mail International Tracked Medium Parcel parameters, we use standard international couriers such as DHL, FedEx and UPS.
These companies use something called volumetric weights to calculate the cost of shipping.
For example, a Balsa Basics RC bundle kit that measures 102cm x 34cm x 16cm and weighs 2.5 kg is actually calculated at 14kg!
This makes these very expensive to send outside the UK - a large kit can cost nearly £40 to send to France.
