Placing an order with Magazine Canteen.
Either use the search bar to look for a person of interest. Or browse a category from any of the major collections shown across the top of the screen. Smaller collections will appear with a simple search.
If you place “quotes” around two words you will see a more detailed list of your desired search. For example “Tom Hardy” will show only magazines with Tom Hardy whereby Tom + Hardy without “quotes” may show magazines that feature both Tom Cruise and Robert Hardy

When can i expect my order?
Upon receiving your order, your package will be despatched within 3 working days. If your order is placed on a Friday evening it will most likely be posted on Monday. We despatch items several times a week. Once your item/s are packed and labelled we may add your tracking information to the parcel and order status a little before it has left. This helps our admin but your tracking information will be updated once it has been received by the post office. You will automatically receive an email once we have completed your order. If you have requested a text - this will arrive at the same time.
Will my magazines be safely packaged?
At the time of being checked and uploaded to our website, all magazines are placed in waterproof, sealed archival sleeves. When posted, your magazine will be sent with stiff card, boarded or padded envelopes with plenty of protection. As a magazine enthusiast with a lifelong devotion to magazines, your magazine will be handled with great care.
The magazine I want is out of stock. Can you find another?
Whilst it is often the case that we have more than one copy of a magazine, we may show just one issue to ensure that the magazine shown is the one you will receive. In some situations a magazine may be so rare that once sold it has in the past taken 10 years to find the same issue again.
If a magazine has been recently sold, it may be re-stocked when time permits and the issue has been checked. However feel free to contact us.
We are constantly striving to increases our archive and the site has new issues added almost daily. If you would like a specific issue, please check if we can re-stock it soon.
Do you sell digital magazine scans?
Unfortunately no. We sell physical magazines only and we can not provide scans.
Update: Postage to the USA.
As of July 2020 The postage price to the USA from the UK has jumped up considerably. For any magazine which does not meet the 'large letter' criteria, the price has sadly almost doubled in price! This is not great news. For example, whilst a thin magazine such as Smash Hits will fit into a small letter - something equally thin such as The Sunday Times will now fall into the Small Parcel category. Unfortunately the price of this is now extremely high.
For magazine orders from 750g to 2 Kilo ( and above ) we are now forced to send this using UPS. This is now actually less expensive than standard mail. The cost from 750g up to 2kilo is now £28 using UPS
This is now cheaper than the standard post, but is in fact much quicker and more reliable. We might suggest that adding a few magazines to your cart may now cost the same to post as just one.
