Your consumer rights
Product descriptionThe products displayed on the site are designed to be personalised by the user. Whilst we have done our best to ensure a close match between the displayed product and the one actually delivered, there may be slight differences in colours and type faces.
This is mainly due to the differences in technology between the web browser, printing software and printing equipment.
ReturnsWe do our best to ensure that your card is in perfect condition when posted, but it is unavoidable that card and letters at times suffer minor damage during transit, such as bent corners and similar. As all our cards are sent through the Royal Mail, it is beyond our control how the letters are treated and no refund or re-send is offered for such minor damage.
Should your card however, arrive in a very damaged condition or be otherwise defective, you should contact us immediately and we will offer to re-print and send out a replacement card. Alternatively you may return it to us and we will refund the amount you paid for the card. Refunds are made via paypal only.
If the card has failed to turn up, please read the "Late or missing mail" section on the General Info page
CancellationOnce an order has been placed, it may be cancelled if the card has not yet been printed. The period between the order being placed and the printing of the card will vary, depending on the time of day and how busy we are, which means that should you wish to cancel the card you must contact us without delay.
For orders with more than one item, only items not yet printed may be cancelled and a partial refund will be made. Refunds are made via paypal only.
