Shipping and Returns


The Deckle Edge offers four methods of delivery to you. When placing an order, you may choose delivery via:

  1. Courier; or
  2. Collection from a Pargo Pick-Up Point; or
  3. Deckle Delivery
  4. Collection from our Salt River branch
The shipping cost is indicated on the checkout page before purchase. For courier delivery, the cost is generally R105. Pargo delivery is R85. Delivery via our Deckle Edge van (available only in selected Cape Town suburbs) is free, and is only an option if your order is R150 or more. Collection from our Salt River branch is free. Orders of R750 and above will be delivered for free - though there are exceptions to this e.g. if the order contains one or more of a few selected large, bulky items. When the order contains any of these items, no free shipping will be granted, and Pargo will not be an option. The fee will then generally be R250. This applies mainly to our large sheets of art paper, as well as our large canvases and easels. Click here to see full listing of oversized items. Most of these items can still be delivered for free via Deckle Delivery. For exceptionally large parcels or exceptionally remote locations, we will quote on a case by case basis. Where The Deckle Edge accepts your order, The Deckle Edge will deliver the Goods to you as soon as reasonably possible, but no later than a maximum of 30 days from receiving your payment (“Delivery Period”). However, parcels will generally be sent out within 2-3 working days of your payment being made. It then generally takes about 1-7 working days for the parcel to reach you (or your Pargo Pick-Up Point, if you have selected Pargo as your delivery option). Timelines depend on your location. Deckle Delivery takes place every Thursday and your parcel will be delivered on the next Thursday after payment is received.

We will notify you if we are unable to deliver within the Delivery Period. You may then, within seven days of being notified, choose whether or not to cancel your order. If you elect to cancel your order, we will reimburse you for the purchase price.


If you would like delivery outside of South Africa, it's unlikely that we would be able to assist with courier arrangements, but we would be happy to prepare your purchase for collection by your own courier or shipping company.
