Returns Tips! Keep your return postage costs as low as possible
We'd recommend sending your item tracked or obtaining a certificate of postage. Please see below for all the boring (but important!) legal stuff...
Returns Policy - T's and C's
All Refund requests MUST be made by email within 7 days of the item being delivered. All returns must be received within 28 days of receipt.
As all our items are handprinted to order, we kindly ask that returned products are in absolutely new and unused condition for a refund. All accessory items MUST be unopened with seals still intact.
Under the Distance Selling Regulations the buyer is under obligation to take Reasonable Care of the items whilst in their possession. We request that items are returned with their original packaging, with any labels, within 28 days.
*Any items that do NOT arrive in a re-saleable condition, or in a timely manner will be sent back to the Buyer.
Every item we sell is carefully inspected before it is shipped. If merchandise is defective or damaged upon receipt, please contact us immediately within 7 business working days after your package arrives, as we will be happy to replace it accordingly or refund the price of the item once it is returned to us.
Returns will only be accepted and refunds or exchanges offered, if items are returned to us unused and unwashed, in their original condition with tags intact, free from any marks (e.g. make-up, deodorant, fake tan) or odours (e.g. perfume or cigarette smoke).
Sizes are approximate and as described by our manufacturers guidelines, therefore it is the customer's responsibility to ensure they choose the correct size based on the sizing guidelines.
If you are unsure you can contact us via email and we will happily advise further.
Once we have received your returns: Please allow 5 working days for your refund to be processed. Refunds will be credited against the card used in the original purchase or sent back to your Paypal account if this was the method used. Please allow 5 to 7 working days for any funds to show back in your account - this is dependent on your bank provider.
Postage and Packaging
Postage (above and beyond our free standard shipping) is non refundable unless the item you have received is faulty.
When returning your parcel to us, we recommend that you send the parcel using a delivery service that insures you for the value of the goods. We cannot provide refunds or exchanges on products that are lost in the post when being returned back to us. The cost of returning the item to us is the buyers responsibility except where the goods are faulty and are being returned for an exchange.
In the event that you receive an incorrect item, we will happily cover your return postage costs up to a maximum of £3.95 - You will be refunded the amount shown on your postage label. We ask that a proof of postage receipt is obtained for your records so we can complete your refund in the event that the parcel is lost on its way back to us. You can choose to send back the item via tracked / recorded delivery but any extra costs (over £3.95) will be the responsibility of the sender.
Next Day Delivery Postage:
Please Note: Where parcels are returned to us by our courier company (due to being refused or where the carriers have been unable to make the delivery) there will be a return postage charge of £4.95. This only applies to Next Day orders or International.
Delivery postage will not be refunded for parcels that are refused or where the carriers have been unable to make the delivery.
Custom Made Designs and Personalised T shirts / Tops
As we state on our web site and throughout the checkout process, Personalised orders may not be changed or cancelled once submitted as they are made to customer specifications.
We hope you understand our need to keep our costs at a minimum and our turn around times fast, in order to continue to provide you with the best value in the printing industry.
Please allow 3-7 working days before dispatch. Your parcel will then be sent out on your chosen delivery service.
Custom Printed items must be paid for in advance, and are non returnable.
Returns are only accepted where the fault is ours.
In the case that you do receive a faulty personalised item, we must ask that this is returned to us or an image sent before we can send out a replacement.
Personalised / custom printed items that are produced on special customer request, are exempt from the right of withdrawal (replacement).
As avid online shoppers ourselves, we know it can be tricky to get the right sizes. We always try to describe items accurately, provide images and follow manufacturers guidelines.
If you would like to exchange an item in your order, there are two options:
Express Exchange - Place a new order for the items that you would like. Send back the unsuitable items within the next 7days. Once we receive these, we will issue a refund for the returned items.
Standard Return - Return the items to us and once we receive them we will contact you to take payment for postage to re-send the items (£2.99).
You can return items to us on any service that you choose. We simply ask that you obtain proof of postage. Please take into account delivery times if you require your items for a particular date, we would recommend the express exchange.
Missing Items - We must be informed of any Missing Parcels within 7 days of dispatch.
