I have paid for APC Express delivery but I am yet to receive my delivery?
APC deliver between 8am and 4pm. If your order does not arrive between these times, please contact the Mail Order Department the following day. Please be fully aware that all parcels require a signature. Therefore, a consignee must be present at the delivery address provided.
What will happen if no one is in when my Express/Standard parcel is delivered?
APC will post a ‘while you were out’ card and will attempt to re-deliver the following day. Should you wish to have it re-delivered on a specific date, you will need to contact them to arrange this. If the courier fails to deliver on their third attempt, the parcel will be returned to sender and will result in an additional fee if you require the item re-sending out.
Can I return an item I have purchased?
If you are not completely happy with our goods or service you have the right to return your order within 30 days of receipt of your product. Under these circumstances you must return the product to us in good condition unless the item you have received is faulty. DVD's, Books, Jewellery and personalised items cannot be returned unsealed unless faulty.
How do I return an item?
Send your product(s) back to Stoke City Mail Order, Unit 17, Innovation Way, North Staffs Business Park, Stoke-on-Trent, ST6 4BF. Please fill in the appropriate form which would of been included in your original order and include this in your returns parcel.

You will then be refunded for the cost of postage to return the item to us; your replacement goods will be posted out to you by APC Express delivery free of charge.

I want a name and number but I’m not sure what to have. Do the names and numbers have to be applied at the time of purchase?
Names, numbers and sleeve badges can be applied at any time after purchase. The condition for this is that the shirt must be unworn or freshly washed. Letters, numbers or sleeve badges cannot be applied if the shirt has been worn since its last wash.
If you require personalisation please refer to the printing guidelines on the Retail terms and conditions page below.
Can I return an item that has been personalised?
Items with custom printing cannot be exchanged or refunded unless the product is faulty. We accept no responsibility once a replica shirt has been printed, in the event that a player leaves the squad and/or his squad number changes, or if the League badge changes in the future.
When purchasing names, numbers or sleeve badges do they have to be applied in store or can I apply them at home myself?
The official letters, numbers and sleeve badges require extreme levels of heat and pressure to be correctly applied and therefore must be applied using the in store printing machines. They cannot be applied at home.
Who do I contact if I have a query regarding my order?
Please e-mail [email protected] or Call 01782 826419.
How can I use my Gift Card?

Shirt Printing- Shirts requiring personalisation for example with additional name, numbering and badges added may take an extra three days before they are ready to be dispatched.
For contractual reasons we are unable to deliver to certain locations around the world. If your country is not listed when you are entering a delivery or billing address, then we will not be able to accept your order to deliver at that address.
Any customs or import duties are levied once the package reaches its destination country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you may want to contact your local customs office for further information. We advise that all international addresses should be checked by the client as Stoke City can not be found responsible should the parcel be delivered to the incorrect address provided.
Please note that we do ship to PO Box Addresses.
