Packaging & delivery


It means a lot to us to keep our footprint as minimal as possible when sending your parcels at Object Story. 

Our cardboard boxes, paper packing tape, tissue paper, paper bubble wrap, postcard and invoice can all go into your cardboard and paper recycling.

The white packing nuts we use are made from potato starch and can go in your home compost bin, or you can wash them down the sink with warm water. They're quite fun for children to get creative with, too! 

Our twine is made from hemp or cotton and can also go in your home compost, or even better, be reused. 

Thank you for taking care of our packaging responsibly, in support of people and our planet.

£3.50 for a second class option

We use Royal Mail and DPD depending on the size and value of your items. We always use a tracked service so you can see when your parcel will arrive with you.
