detailing the products you have ordered.

most items, you have the legal right to cancel your order within
7 working days of receiving the goods. However, this does not apply
to certain items which we have made, personalised or customised
specifically for you.
Order cancellations must be made in writing, quoting your order
number, within 7 working days beginning the day after the day on
which the item is delivered.
If you wish to cancel your order you can notify us by email to email@example.com
or by telephone (01292 474977) before we have dispatched the goods
to you or where goods have already been dispatched to you, the goods
must be returned to us in accordance with the 'Returns and exchange'
Please note: In order to provide a fast service some products are
immediately sent for production. Please check your order on screen
and the confirmation email carefully as we cannot refund products
which have been mis-spelt.
We reserve the right to cancel your order at any time and issue
a full refund.
The provisions of this clause do not affect your statutory rights.
you are not completely satisfied with the goods, simply return them
to us at any time within 14 working days of receipt. If goods are
returned within 7 working days of receipt we will issue a full refund
including postage and packaging, or an exchange. After 7 working
days we will refund the cost of the order minus the postage and
packaging charge paid. The costs of returning goods to us shall
be borne by you.
The item is your responsibility until it reaches us. For your own
protection, we recommend that you send the parcel back to using
a delivery service that insures you for the value of the goods as
we cannot be held responsible for items damaged or lost in the post.
Your rights to return the goods to us will not apply
in the following circumstances:
Any products that we have made, personalised or customised specifically
- Where, in our opinion, you have not taken reasonable care of goods
whilst in your possession and have not been returned with the original
- If you have made a spelling mistake on your order and it has been
sent for production.
If you return an item because of an error on our part, or because
it is defective, we will happily refund the full value of the item
and your costs in returning it to us. The item(s) must be returned
in the condition in which you received it within 30 days of delivery.
By the very individual nature of personalised products, they cannot
be re-sold, and therefore we cannot accept returns if you have a
change of mind.
We regret that postage and packing costs for unwanted items cannot
be refunded after 7 working days from when the order was delivered.
• You have a duty to return the item to us and the cost of
doing so is your responsibility, except if the item is faulty or
does not comply with the contract.
• The parcel can take up to 7 working days to be returned
to our Workshop, unless sent via special delivery.
This returns policy does not affect your statutory rights.
