HOW MUCH WILL POSTAGE COST ME?

The weight of each magazine can vary greatly from one issue to the next. For example, one issue of POP magazine may weigh the same as 15 issues of the Sunday Times!
Postage is dependant on where you live and how heavy the consignment will be.
Items posted within the UK will cost a minimum of £3.50 and a maximum of £8.95.
Postage outside the UK will be calculated at checkout upon entering your address details. You do not have to proceed with your order at this stage.

 

HOW ARE THE MAGAZINES DELIVERED TO ME?

For reliability and convenience, we use Royal Mail within the UK. This means if you are not at home during the day you can collect the item from your post office on a day convenient to you. Items will require a signature. It may be possible to offer Next Day delivery if this is discussed in advance.

Outside of the UK, we use Royal Mail up to 2 Kilo in weight. Items heavier than 2 Kilo will be sent using UPS. In both cases, the item will require a signature upon arrival. 

 

CAN I BUY MORE THAN ONE COPY OF A MAGAZINE?

Over many years of collecting, it's highly possible that we have more than one copy of an issue available. However, for the sake of getting the item that you see listed for sale, in some cases, the quantity shown may be just one. This does not mean we only have one, and when items are thoroughly checked over the course of the coming months, the quantity available may indeed increase. In the meantime, we are more than happy to be contacted at info@magazinecanteen.com to discuss possible multiple purchases.

 

I AM LOOKING FOR A CERTAIN MAGAZINE NOT SHOWN. DO YOU HAVE IT?

Quite possibly. The website will show larger collections of various titles. However, there are many more magazines in the archive not currently listed on the website. Please email me with any ‘wish list’ and we can see if we have what you need.

 

WHY DO THE PRICES DIFFER SO MUCH FOR SIMILAR MAGAZINES WITHIN ONE COLLECTION?

The aim of the website is to provide the very best condition copy of a magazine you could find. Over the course of almost 30 years collecting, you learn that condition of magazines can range vastly. 
The price quoted will reflect a variety of factors. A 20-year awareness of an individual items worth, it’s rarity, condition, and also the pulling power of either the title itself or that month’s cover star.

 

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN BUYING MAGAZINE COLLECTIONS?

As an absolute fanatic of magazine collecting, it's quite hard to resist this. However, sometimes space can be a factor. I discard an awful lot of magazine collections either gifted or purchased if they have pages missing or significant faults. 

As a continued collector I would always be interested to hear about collections you may no longer need, and would gladly receive an email with a list and price requested. You can  contact me at info@magazinecanteen.com

 

CAN YOU PROVIDE ME WITH SCANS FROM A MAGAZINE?

Unfortunately, no. Our aim is to provide magazine enthusiasts with the physical item of a magazine. We do not offer a search and scan facility.
