Yes, you can track your delivery with Always Welcome by contacting our logistics manager Nicky at for assistance.


Do you take on custom projects?

Many of the designs in the Always Welcome catalogue can be customised to make them your own. Please note, however, that many of the designs are part of a complex production process and so for customisation requests that are outside of the options available to you when buying your product.
