What will my package look like?

All orders are sent with the non-descript return address name of "Gold Group House" instead of "Ann Summers". Products are mailed in bubble-wrap envelope or a plain box (depending on the nature and/or size of your order).

There's also no need to worry about your bank statement as your transaction will show as 'AS Ltd'.

There are no markings on the back or side of your parcel. The only markings are your address label on the front, which appears as below, and a Royal Mail Delivery or courier sticker depending on the service used.
