Distance Selling Regulations and order cancellation
Please take notice that although the Distance Selling Regulations
do not apply to bespoke products which are commenced immediately such
as printing, we are happy for you to cancel your order after submitting
it to us providing that the design, layout or print process has not
started. However, once the order is placed and processed, a cancellation
fee will apply to cover our time and costs in processing and charging
To cancel or amend an order, please IMMEDIATELY send an email to
email@example.com stating the order number and full details,
with the reason for cancellation. If the printing process has not
already started (our factory works 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday
and reserve the right to commence work on your order immediately
upon receipt) we will confirm a refund, less our cancellation fee.
If design and layout work has commenced and a proof has been submitted,
we reserve the right to charge for the work involved up to the point
of cancellation notwithstanding that the design layout and artwork
process may have been offered without charge as part of the whole
Regretably, once the actual printing process has started, we are
unable to cancel any order or refund any payment.
Our only terms of payment are strictly payment in full upon placing
the order. For cancellation details, see above.
