New VAT Rules and Shipping Issues
New VAT rules for sales to the EU from the UK mean that we will need to get an IOSS number – this will take up to a week to process and so any orders from the EU will be delayed until we have one. The new rules state that VAT must be declared on all sales over £22 at the creation of an invoice. The complexities of managing this through our website will pose some problems but we are confident we will have something in place soon. Please bear with us.
We at digs for figs have, up until now, prided ourselves on selling frames all over the world but due to recent experiences with overseas damages we have taken the hard decision to ship only to the UK and Europe. This is, we hope, a temporary measure that will protect us from incurring unnecessary costs when damages do occur and also protect our customers from poor experiences when buying from Digs for Figs.
We have also seen the cost of shipping from our manufacturer in China triple since last year. This unfortunately means that the cost of our frames will have to rise to ensure that we are still a profitable company. We have been reluctant to raise the cost of the frames to cover the rising shipping costs but with our next batch we will sadly be raising the cost of a frame with plates from £65 to £75. This should ensure that we can continue to buy stock and sell them to our customers. We are hopeful that, once the shipping industry is back on an even keel, our prices will return to their original levels.
New for 2021: Brexit has a negative effect
I am sorry to report that, due (I assume) to Brexit, the cost of shipping abroad has gone up. We have had to change our prices to reflect this. I hope that this is just an adjustment period and that deliveries to Europe and the rest of the world will come down in price as the year goes on, but I cannot be sure. I know this will affect our customers more than ever in these uncertain times and I apologise for the change. Sadly this is the country I live in and the choice that was made has consequences.
Rest assured, I will continue to work on finding better delivery solutions to bring the digs for figs frames to everyone as cheap as possible for years to come.
New for 2020: Digs For Figs
We are no longer Display Frames UK, we are now Digs for Figs. We feel that our new name is more representative of the company we want to be. It is memorable and fun.
What was once our tag line has now become our official name. You may have noticed the website address has changed, you may even have tried to get to www.displayframesuk.com only to end up here, well that’s the power of the internet. You are now on the digsforfigs.com page and that’s how we hope it will stay.
So don’t be alarmed, we have the same site, the same product, the same great customer service, all that has changed is the name.
New for 2019: Front opening Frames.
We have worked hard to bring you the next step in our frames, front opening. Yes, we know, its a door, but what a door! It has hinges, and opens and closes. The frame has small magnets in to keep the door closed.
The door is slightly larger than the frame, giving a beautiful framed look, this means the frame has to be wall mounted. It stays on the wall through the use two hangers.
This frame keep can hold many figures, as much as 315 figures. there are 7 shelves, each shelf is 64 studs wide and 6 studs deep, this means it can hold three rows of figures on each shelf totalling 45 figs per shelf.
