8. Delivery & Payment
Delivery will normally be made within 2-10 working days from confirmation of order (and receipt of artwork) to all UK mainland addresses.

9. Claims and Returns
Items that are faulty or need to be exchanged must be returned to us within 14 days of receipt. Items for exchange must be in their original condition “as new” with their original packaging. We are unable to accept returns of any product that has been printed with a design or logo unless the product is faulty. In the event of returned items, the customer is liable for the cost of returning all goods.
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. By the very individual nature of printed 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. Even if you have qualified for free delivery when placing your order, a postage and packing charge of £1.25 per item will be levied on unwanted items and deducted from any refund given. Please note: • 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 Unit unless sent via special delivery
