1. The Contract between you and us
We must receive payment in whole for the price of the goods that you order before your order can be accepted. Once payment has been received by us we will confirm that your order has been accepted by sending an email to you at the email address you provide in your order form.
Our acceptance of your order brings into existence a legally binding contract between us.
2. Pricing, Delivery and Discount Codes:
2.1 The prices payable for goods that you order are as set out in our website.
2.1.1 All of our prices are in UK Pounds. You will be billed in UK Pounds and if you purchase from outside the UK, currency fluctuations and credit card charges may make a difference to the amount billed on your credit card.
2.2 You may be required to pay extra for delivery and it might not be possible for us to deliver to some locations. Our delivery charges are set out in our website.
2.3 Promotional discount codes: We may from time to time offer promotional discount codes (either directly or via third parties) which may apply in respect of any, or certain specified, purchases made though this Website. Such codes may only be applied to purchases of full price items and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or discounts.
3. Right for you to cancel your contract
Unfortunately you do not have the right to cancel your order under any circumstances once it has been placed. As all our goods are personalised and custom-made to your specifications, by their unique nature, they cannot be returned. Furthermore, once an order has been placed, the manufacturing process to create your custom goods cannot be halted, so please ensure that your order is correct before placing it.
This is in accordance with the provisions under The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000, SI 2000/2334.
4. Cancellation by us
4.1 We reserve the right to cancel the contract between you and us if:
4.1.1 we have insufficient stock to deliver the goods you have ordered;
4.1.2 we do not deliver to your area; or
4.1.3 one or more of the items you ordered was listed at an incorrect price due to a typographical error or an error in the pricing information received by us from our suppliers.
4.2 If we cancel your contract we will notify you by email or by telephone, and will credit to your account any sum deducted by us from your credit card as soon as possible but in any event within 30 days of your order. We will not be obliged to offer any additional compensation for disappointment suffered.
5. Delivery of goods to you
