1. - RETURNS & REFUNDS

-----------------------------------------

1.1. - STANDARD NON-FAULTY RETURNS 

The law in the UK protects your right to change your mind about a purchase. You have the right to a refund on any items without explanation as long as you return them in a saleable condition in their original packaging within 30 days of receipt of your goods. If the items are not faulty you are responsible for arranging and covering the cost of return postage.

1.2. - BESPOKE / UNUSUAL ORDERS

If your order is bespoke to you then it can not reasonably be returned to be sold on to somebody else, and so the law does not afford you the same right to change your mind. Because our process for offering bespoke items includes clear descriptions, examples, and a strict approval process, we do not offer refunds for unwanted bespoke items. This policy applies to unique designs, designs that have been personalised (for example with extra words, changed imagery, or a message added to the item), and to some unusual orders which would be hard for us to resell were you to change your mind (e.g. some clearance items or a very large order of an otherwise low volume item). In the case of 'unusual orders', we would have let you know by email before fulfilling your order that this clause applies in order to give the option to cancel the order at that juncture. Of course in the case of any faulty item(s), the next clause (1.3) applies.

1.3. - MISSING, FAULTY OR DAMAGED GOODS

It is very important to us that your order arrives with you complete, in excellent condition and in a timely manner. We pack every order by hand and check every order before dispatch. One reason we prefer to send packages with Royal Mail is that in our experience they take the responsibility of handing your goods much more seriously than other carriers. Thankfully it is therefore rare for us to have issues with carriage; however, if for any reason your order arrives damaged, incomplete or you are in some other way dissatisfied, please get in touch asap so that we can resolve the matter for you swiftly. Depending on what has happened, what the items are, and how you want the matter resolved, we can either replace items or provide the appropriate refund or credit note. If we require you to return faulty item(s) we will provide you with a prepaid postage label to return the item(s) in their original packaging.

1.4. - WHOLESALE ORDERS

If there are any issues with missing, faulty or damaged goods - or if for any reason your order is not what you were expecting please get in touch within 48 hours of receipt of goods so that we can resolve the matter swiftly. In most cases we are happy to refund, exchange or issue a credit note for items that are returned in a saleable condition within 30 days. Very large orders may fall into the category of 'unusual orders' (clause 1.2) - but that if that were to apply it would have been drawn to your attention.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers. 
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located. 
As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act. Once you leave our website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website’s Terms of Service.

2.6. - THIRD-PARTY SERVICES - PRODUCTS

For a handful of items we do partner with third-party providers (e.g. our clothing items are produced by a third-party print-on-demand service).

These third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

4. - SHIPPING POLICY...

-----------------------------------------

4.1. DISPATCH - As soon as we receive your order, we print your packing slip and set to work gathering, printing, pressing, finishing, preparing, and packaging all your items. Once your order is packed, we book it in with Royal Mail and drop off at our local village Post Office. If possible we get orders dispatched in less than 24 hours, but at peak times it can take up to 3 working days. Ceramic items need a little extra preparation time; we aim to avoid any delays, however at very busy times or for large orders this can be up to 7 days. You will receive an dispatch confirmation email from us on the day we post you order.

4.2. DISTRIBUTION - We use Royal Mail for most purposes and otherwise various Courier Services. Up to date details of pricing and terms of different delivery services to UK, Europe and Worldwide are listed on our Postage and Packaging page,

4.3. DELIVERY - The expected time frame for delivery is dependant on what you have ordered, where it is being delivered to and by what service. Expected delivery windows are listed on the Postage and Packaging page. We are not responsible for delays that are outside our control. However, if you think that your delivery is late, do get in touch and we will do what we can to assist.

4.4. SHIPPING OUTSIDE THE UK - If you wish to order goods outside the UK, there may be additional duties and taxes due, depending on whatever local regulations are in place in the destination country; our system is not able to handle these potential extra charges, so the recipient will need to be responsible for all customs formalities, including completion of customs declarations, payment of import taxes levies, duties and satisfying any other regulatory requirements that may be in force in the relevant country of importation. It is your responsibility to ensure that the recipient consents to this.
