    We are moving!

    We are now preparing for our move from our current base in Essex to Suffolk which takes place next week w/c 23rd November 2020.   As we are moving the business and distribution centre we will not be shipping any new orders from 20th November 2020 at 2pm to 27th November 2020 inclusive - as such any orders made during this period will be dispatched on Monday 30th November 2020. If at all possible to ship sooner we will let you know but for now assume they will be shipped on the 30th November.

    As always if you have an urgent order that can not wait for shipping on the 30th November during this week please get in touch with us we will endeavor to find a way of dispatching to you sooner.

    We will be available on email and by telephone if required although email will be safer in case our phone lines are down around moving day.

    We have introduced a new range of NFC Tamperproof Stickers that continue to work, but provide an indicator as to whether the item has been opened or not.  This is done by a unique antenna system and the NXP NTAG213TT chip.
