These terms and conditions are not intended for the sale of goods to consumers as defined in the Consumer Rights Act 2015.
The titles and headings used in these terms and conditions are for convenience and have no effect on their interpretation.
2. ABOUT YOU
By placing an order with us you warrant that you are an operating business; are legally capable of entering into binding contracts; and have the necessary authority enter into the contract on behalf of the business you represent.
4. THE CONTRACT
Your order constitutes a contractual offer to buy goods from us and is subject to our written acceptance. A legally binding contract is formed between us and you when we send you a written acceptance of your order which will contain full details and prices of the products ordered.
You can place an order with us by email, telephone or online. You can register an account on our website to place an order, in which case it is your responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of your account and password. You accept full responsibility for all activities that take place under your account.
The contract cannot be varied or cancelled by you once it has been formed. We reserve the right to vary or cancel the contract at any time and without prior notice.
5. DESIGN and ARTWORK
When you order our design service for personalised products, we will create the designs using the materials and instructions you supply to us. You will receive digital samples of the design and can submit requests for us to make changes to it. When you approve the design, we will proceed to printing your order.
You must check that all product samples are to your satisfaction before approving them for print reproduction.
You must ensure the materials you supply to us are suitable and satisfactory for print reproduction.
You transfer all materials to us at your own risk and must keep copies of the materials and designs we create for you. We are not liable for the loss or damage of any of your materials or designs.
Products cannot be changed or cancelled after you approve them. We are not liable for errors in any proofs, samples or printed products that you subsequently discover after approving them, or in materials you supply to us for print.
You must send your print requirements to us within 6 months of placing your order, otherwise your order will be treated as cancelled and we reserve the right to retain any amount paid to us.
6. PRODUCT VARIATION
All images of goods provided by us are for illustrative purposes only. You accept that variations in the appearance and specification of goods are inherent within the printing process; the appearance of goods will vary from the images you see on your screen during the order process. For the avoidance of doubt, product proofs and samples do not constitute a sale by sample.
We reserve the right to modify the specification of goods, or to withdraw them from sale without notice.
7. AVAILABILITY and DELIVERY
We usually dispatch orders within 2 days of acceptance using Royal Mail services. Stated delivery dates are estimates only and time is not of the essence. We are not liable for late deliveries or for any consequential damage arising therefrom.
If the products you order are not in stock or are partially in stock, we will contact you to ask if you would prefer (a) for us to deliver the products in instalments as they become available, or (b) to wait and receive the entire delivery when all products become available, or (c) a refund or credit applied to your account to the value of the products that are not in stock.
When we supply goods in instalments, each delivery constitutes a separate contract and may incur separate delivery charges. Our failure to deliver any instalments will not affect the contract as a whole and it will remain valid.
Signed for deliveries are deemed complete when goods have been signed for at the delivery address and non-signed for deliveries are deemed complete if not reported missing within 7 days of dispatch.
If you refuse or fail to take delivery of goods all risk of loss or damage to the goods will pass to you and; without prejudice to any other remedies we will become entitled to immediate payment in full for the goods supplied plus carriage; and you will be liable to pay any costs incurred due to your refusal or failure to take delivery.
If delivery is delayed or fails due to your failure to provide sufficient delivery details, delivery will be treated as failed or refused and the relevant terms will apply.
Non-delivery of goods must be reported to us by email within 7 days of dispatch. We will investigate reports of non-delivery and if goods cannot be successfully delivered to you within a reasonable time, we will provide replacements.
9. GOODS SUPPLIED IN INSTALMENTS
You can pay an upfront sum for goods which we will supply to you in instalments. We also refer to this arrangement as goods supplied on a call-off agreement. All goods supplied on this basis are subject to the terms and conditions set out in this document.
We will issue an invoice for the upfront sum which will also detail the goods that are to be supplied in instalments; the value of goods supplied in each instalment will be deducted from the upfront sum paid until the sum reaches zero or until expiry. You must not pay for more goods than you will need within the next 12 months. Call-off agreements expire and end 12 months from the invoice date and any unused sum is non-refundable and non-transferable.
10. OWNERSHIP, RISK and TITLE
You assume all risk in the goods from the time of delivery. Ownership of the goods will pass to you on delivery providing you have paid for them in full.
If goods are delivered to you before payment is received, you will possess the goods on a fiduciary basis and the goods will remain our property until you have paid for them in full. Whilst you possess goods on a fiduciary basis you will maintain the goods in a condition that is satisfactory to us and you will retain the goods at no cost to us.
We will endeavour to deliver the correct quantity of goods, however, you acknowledge that variations in respect of quantities are inherent within the printing industry. Our liability in respect of shortages is as follows:
Prices are as quoted on our website and written quotes, except in cases of error. If we discover a pricing error in your order, we will offer you the option of purchasing the goods at the correct price or cancelling your order.
Any work you instruct us to undertake is chargeable, including but not limited to producing artwork, proofs and samples.
We reserve the right to alter our current prices at any time without prior notice.
Orders placed outside of the UK may be subject to import duties and taxes. We are not liable for any duties, fees or additional charges for customs and clearance levied by the importing country at the time the delivery arrives in your country.
Payment is required in advance or within the timeframe set out in the invoice we issue to you. You agree to make payment against all issued invoices in full and without deduction for any reason. Payments will be deemed as received when we are in receipt of cleared funds and they are non-refundable.
In the event of non-payment of an invoice we may cancel your orders, suspend further deliveries to you, and charge interest on the overdue sum at the rate of 8% per annum above the Bank of England base lending rate. Interest will accrue on a daily basis from the due date for payment until the actual date the overdue sum is paid, whether before or after judgement.
In the case of invoice disputes, you must inform us of the grounds of the dispute within 7 days of the invoice date and you must pay the total value of the invoice less the disputed amount; on settlement of the dispute, any sum outstanding will be payable in accordance with these terms.
14. REPLACEMENTS and DEFECTIVE GOODS
If goods reach you in a defective condition you must inform us within 7 days of delivery. We may ask you to return the goods to us for examination and if goods are found to be defective we will provide replacements.
We may accept the return of non-defective goods which are returned at your cost in a resalable condition. Whether goods are considered resalable is at our discretion. You must ensure returned goods are properly insured. We are not responsible for returned goods that are lost or damaged in transit.
We are not liable to provide a remedy for defective goods if the total price for the goods has not been paid by the payment due date. We are not responsible for ensuring the goods we supply are suitable for your purposes.
Our liability in respect of misprints (products printed with flaws) are as follows:

16. OUR LIABILITY
These terms and conditions do not seek to limit or exclude our liability in respect of death or personal injury caused by our negligence; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; or any other matter which cannot be lawfully excluded or limited.
