How to use the reserve function
If you'd like to purchase items from our site but want to save money on shipping costs, you can use our reserve function to combine your orders over an unlimited period of time, and ship them together for one combined shipping price when you are ready.Just hit the 'reserve' button at the checkout page as your shipping option when you've finished making your order, and your order will automatically be held in reserve here until you are ready for us to ship everything to you.
You can keep as many orders in reserve with us via our site as you like, until you are ready to ship. Just send us an email when you are ready to ship your reserve orders, and we will get in touch with the combined shipping price, or ship for free if you have exceeded the minimum order amount for free shipping to your address.
Can the reserve function be used to get free shipping? Yes - If your combined order total is more than £50 within the UK, over £150 within the EU, or over £225 worldwide, we'll ship your order to you via courier service, for free.
Here's a step by step guide to using it:
1. Click on the account icon to log into your account.
If you don't have an account, please click 'create account' to make one. If you had an account on the old RWDFWD site, please create a new one with the same email address used on the old site - this will ensure your previous orders are brought through to your new account.
2. Add records to your cart as normal.
3. When you're ready to check out, select 'ship'.
4. Then select 'Reserve items' on the shipping method list, then continue to payment.
5. Once payment is complete, your order will show in your account as 'unfulfilled'. We will have put all the products aside in reserve for you to combine with other orders and ship later in bulk.
6. When you're ready to ship all the items you have in reserve, email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will calculate the shipping due and arrange for payment to be taken.
7. Sit tight and wait for your records to arrive in the post!

EU Order info
Unfortunately, the UK is no longer part of the EU - This means that certain shipments sent to addresses there from us may be subject to tax and / or import duty - All orders sent from RWDWD are sent ‘DDU’ - That is, duty unpaid - any import tax and/or duty is the sole responsibility of the buyer.
If you would like to use our reserve function to group several orders into one large shipment, we can arrange for it to be sent tax and duty pre-paid so you don’t have to worry about it at a later date - Contact us for more information.
The Never Sleep related ARCHIVIO publication strikes again, following up that jaw-droppingly good first issue of hardcore techno / record shop related graphics, with a more localised look at the subcultural ephemera of the mid 80s discoteque scene in Italy - much like the predecessor, this book is full of highly intriguing oddities and smile-raising artefacts of a culture of days gone by, pre internet age, in a time when music did of course travel through countries and the sentiment of dancing to amplified music existed worldwide, yet everyone did it a little different - and the italian discoteque scene is especially interesting when keeping in mind the boom of illegal free party raves that followed -
Well researched and collated with great eye for detail, served on high quality print and paper, ARCHIVIO #2 is another must-have, if you ask us.
Check the infos from the source:
"The second issue, about the italian discoteques golden age, collecting and scanning Italian discos logos and stickers, graphics curiosity and illustration ephemera during the golden age of Italian discos.The selection of logos, draws from the artist private archive, is a visual testimony of a unique and unrepeatable Italian historical moment.From the brutalist provincial discos to the trendy circuits of the big Italian cities of the post economic boom.More than 8000 discos were surveyed during the mid-1980s, a nation always on the move in constant search of revelry. Looking for La Grande Baldoria.
The publication includes text by Mauro Simionato about one of the first club-focused subcultural phenomenon of the baiosi and later afro-cosmic movement; and a text by Michele Galluzo with reference to the visual identities and the graphic inspirations during that era."
Basically, this book is well worth a look!
