About Us Engale Marketing began life in the early 1980s as the publisher of the Official Gerry Anderson fan magazine S.i.G. Husband and wife team Yvonne and David Nightingale's small publishing house took over the publishing chores when David's partnership with S.i.G. co-creator Brendan Sheehan came to an end.

Soon the company was branching out into licensed merchandise based on Gerry Anderson's various TV series - calendars, postcards, sew-on patches and posters. In 1986 a small shop was opened in Blackpool, Lancashire, called Thunderbooks. Gerry Anderson was by now a personal friend of Yvonne and David so who else to perform the opening ceremony than the man himself ! The next year the Blackpool shop moved to its present, larger, premises on Lytham Road

In 1988 a second shop was opened in the nearby inland University town of Preston. Called Thunderbooks II, Gerry Anderson was once again on hand in July of that year to cut the celebratory tape. The shop was renamed Star Trader in 1998 but passed into independent ownership and was renamed in December 2006

Making A Purchase Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our Catalog, and click on any items that you wish to buy and put them into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on "Order" and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to satisfy the order.

We accept credit card and PayPal payments. If you are shopping from overseas, place your order and your credit card company will convert the transaction to your own currency automatically.

We accept Visa and Mastercard, sadly no longer American Express. We usually only charge for any item until it is ready to ship but if we are confident of supply we occasionally Back Order an item so as not to hold up other items which might be to hand

If you do not have credit card facilities then you can print out your Order Form and mail it to us with payment. If you know someone with a credit card then you can get them to place the order for you. Please be aware, though, that THEY become our customer and we have to mail goods to them at their address. You have to arrange to retrieve the goods and pay for them with your "proxy".

Shipping And Handling In the U.K. items are sent either second or first class mail or Parcel Post. The latter is a three-day delivery service (not guaranteed). Overseas items go by Air - either as Small Packet, Printed Paper or Parcel. The difference now between Air and Surface freight is marginal and not worth the cost saving over the time delay. Usually we mail out on a Wednesday and Friday fo each week.

As a "mission statement" we do not seek to make additional profit from shipping charges. No online system will be 100% accurate in calculating charges when multiple items are ordered, especially if different sizes and weights. We quite often REDUCE shipping charges for customers to make them more accurate. By the same token, on VERY rare occasions, we reserve the right to increase the charge if we are going to be out of pocket
Delivery Schedule We mail out twice a week - usually Wednesdays and Fridays
Back Orders Occasionally an item may not be in stock at the time your order arrives. If it is not going to delay things too long we will wait until we can complete the entire order before shipping. If we think the delay will be more than a few days we will Back Order the item and send it when we get it. Your Invoice accompanying the items we send at the start will indicate which items, if any, have been Back Ordered.
Tax Charges All prices for goods on our Site include (where applicable) Value Added Tax at 17.5%
Credit Card Security We know of no documented cases of credit card fraud using our shopping system over the Internet. All credit card numbers are encrypted in the software when the order is placed using 128 bit encryption. They are only decrypted after they reach our computer. They are not held in clear text on any web site.
