Order & acceptance

7.1  Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. We will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.

7.2  If we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.

Product description & changes

7.3  The images of the products on the Website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images.

7.4  If we are making the product to a specification you have given us you are responsible for ensuring that the specifications are correct. Similarly if we are customising the product at your request you are responsible for ensuring the information you provide us is correct and we shall not be responsible for omissions, typographical errors or other false information.

7.5  If you wish to make a change to your order before it has been delivered, please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.

Price and payment

7.6  The price of the product will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, if the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order (if it is lower, we simply charge the lower amount).

7.7  We accept payment via credit card payments in GDP. You are responsible for all transaction fees/transfer costs. You must pay for the products before we dispatch them.

7.8  For some orders we may require a deposit in advance (for example large personalised orders or bespoke requests). We will let you know whether any such deposit is required before we confirm your order. The deposit is non-refundable.

7.9  If you are a business customer you must pay all amounts due to us under these terms in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding of tax as required by law).

If you are a consumer customer we charge interest at the rate of 4% a year above the base lending rate of the Bank of England from time to time. If you are a business customer we charge interest at the rate of 8% a year above the base lending rate of the Bank of England. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.

7.12  After accepting your order, we will contact you with an estimated delivery date . For standard orders, we deliver products within 30 days of the date on which we accepted your order. For customisable or bespoke orders, we will contact you to agree a delivery date after accepting your order.

Provided we do this we will not be responsible for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to cancel the contract and receive a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.

Risk & ownership

7.14  You will be responsible for the product from the time we deliver it but ownership of the product only passes to you once we have received payment in full.

Cancellation & refunds

7.15 You can always cancel your contract with us at any time by using the contact details provided above.
