info and terms -everything you need to know, and the legal stuff
All items are subject to VAT - The checkout will work out the VAT and P&P for you
If your order has not arrived or has been damaged or lost It is usually quickest and easiest to telephone us. Please do allow reasonable time for your order to arrive. eg. allow 1-4 working days before it leaves our premises, at least 7 working days for special custom colours etc. Working days (days when our carriers can collect or deliver, or days when we can send orders) do not include weekends or public holidays, items sent by post can take at least another 1-4 days to arrive, although the Royal Mail will not consider an item lost or delayed before 15 days.
On many occasions when we hear of a non delivery, the slip that the carrier or postman is supposed to leave has gone astray. The Distance Selling Regulations are clear that it is the sellers responsibility (our job) to make sure your goods arrive. We take every care to securely pack and ship all orders as soon as possible, but items can still go missing or become lost or delayed or damaged in the post. We try to send all larger orders to areas covered by our insured carrier (usually ANC).
Orders sent by trackable, signed-for service.
Almost every order is shipped trackable and signed for - and we do always keep proof of posting, and carriers consignment notes, logged by delivery address and UK postcode in the event of any problems.
Online Order Enquiries
If making an enquiry about an online order, it is really helpful if you can give us the transaction ID or Receipt ID which was emailed to you when your order was made, this is not essential, but it can help us deal with your enquiry very quickly.
Contact: telephone 01736 330887 - phone contact is far easier and usually quicker than emailing us, we have to deal with a lot of emails every day, and frequently it can take some time to reply. and any delivery problems or problems with your order can normally be sorted out on the spot by telephone as the shop counter staff can check in the workshop while you are on the phone. Often our counter staff will manage to remember taking your recent order, and can deal with any problem while you are on the phone. Please remember they are at a shop counter, and may already be helping a customer, so if we are busy we may ask to take your number and call you back.

Acceptance of your order, and processing your order
Your order, if accepted by us, should be shipped in a reasonable time as per the guideline despatch times shown on our web site in working days. (We aim to deal with your order promptly 1-4 working days is an average guideline for popular items kept in stock. we try to keep stocks of all regular lines to meet day to day retail orders, special colours etc may take longer, and we have no control over distribution before stock or specially ordered items for customers reach us, although we do use suppliers with good reliability).
When you receive a receipt for an online payment or make a card transaction, this is only the first stage of us processing your order, processing the payment does not mean we have yet accepted the order. (Why is this? ... As a great deal of our customers orders are custom made in custom sizes, colours, and with other unpredictable variables in cutting, capabilities of the machinery etc, we have to define acceptance of your order as the point where we are sure we can successfully fulfil and deliver your order to you, so your order is "accepted" when it reaches the stage where we have cut/made it. This definition of accepting your order is a legal requirement as we have to specify a clear point at which your order has been accepted. We reserve the right to cancel any order if we are unable to process it to completion for any reason (deliver it to you).
All items advertised or offered for sale are on the understanding of the term "e&oe" (errors and omissions excepted) - this simply means that if we have made a genuine mistake, or there are problems out of our control etc, we have not intended to mislead or misrepresent any product and we are not obliged to accept your order in these circumstances. Mistakes do happen, particularly with web-site code, changes in server-side operations, upgrades to host servers, even spelling or typing mistakes. If any errors are reported or discovered we do promise to correct them as soon as reasonably possible and give you the opportunity to re-order. Similarly if you make a mistake in ordering, we are always pleased to amend, refund or cancel your order without obligation - see elsewhere)
We do our best at all times to comply with the spirit and letter of distance selling regulations, data protection, and internet best practice guidelines relevant to our business. We understand and value our customers concerns about internet security, particularly your credit card security, and your online privacy. We do value our customers' privacy. We appreciate that by placing an order with us you are paying up front and trusting us to do our best to deliver in a timely manner, and we always aim to meet your reasonable expectations. If you have any concerns, problems or questions, please don not hesitate to contact us by telephone, email or in writing.
Our aim is to make our terms and conditions as clear a as possible. All business is conducted within the scope of the distance selling regulations under UK law and all of our terms or conditions are intended to meet the spirit and letter of customers rights under UK law.

Trade terms (not applicable to retail website sales)
All trade transactions are under UK laws
We draw your attention to this only if you are a trade buyer! Some examples of "trade" are below.
eg. If you are an amateur artist, an art club, school, an amateur photographer, or an arts student needing mounts and frames in quantity, we may still have granted you the same discounted rates. Discounted rates are not necessarily the same as "trade", but for these purposes under UK law we do assume that a buyer who requires quantity is knowledgeable enough to know what they are buying. So if you are seeking a discount based on quantity, please ask any questions before ordering! -We cannot refund bulk orders where (for example) the colour has changed slightly since your last order two years ago, batches change and this is acceptable in the trade. If you do require exact and perfect colour matches from the latest batch, please visit the shop counter. In general variations in colour are the exception rather than the rule.
If you are buying to re-sell, then trade terms will apply, unless other terms have been agreed. (for example- if you are in business and have bought items in connection with your business, then this is deemed a trade sale. Another example- we will assume that an individual buying bulk quantities of any item is "trade" - We are sensible about the application of these terms but retain the right to apply standard UK law trade terms to trade customers in the event of any dispute which we cannot resolve. If returns accepted (or accepted at our discretion under UK law) we reserve the right to add a reasonable re-stocking fee for the return of items sold on a business to business basis, no less than 20 percent for standard/stock items.
