Delivery and Returns

Blue Max Banner Schoolwear

Dear Customers,

Banner is open for business during lockdown, but will be initially be restricting deliveries out to customers to once a week.
All orders placed after 1pm on a Tuesday and before 1pm the following Tuesday will be despatched on the Wednesday of that week and delivered to customers on the Thursday. If you place a web order you MUST call our sales office on 0333 7000 888 and ask for your account to be added to the Account Open list (you only need to do this once). Where we know customers are open we will also despatch any back orders on the same basis. With so many shops closing during lockdown, we must ensure that we are only delivering to those still trading and able to accept deliveries.

Many thanks for your co-operation and understanding during this period.

Delivery Information

Our standard method of dispatch is DPD or TNT carrier. Other methods are Special Delivery, Royal Mail and, upon request or as needed, DHL/Fedex. Orders can also be collected by arrangement by the customer's designated carrier.
