9.1 We hope you will be pleased with everything you have bought from us but if you are unhappy with your Products, you can return them to us either in accordance with the terms set out below or as otherwise in accordance with your legal rights.
Right to cancel
9.2 You have a legal right to change your mind and cancel the contract between you and us within 14 days of delivery of your Products without giving a reason. This right, under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Charges) Regulations 2013, is explained in more detail in this clause 9. Please note that the right to change your mind does not apply to any bespoke Products you purchase from us (ie, Products that we create to your specification or are clearly personalised).
Whilst we hope you are happy with placing your order, as these are bespoke items we do ask you contact customer services within 3 days to request a cancellation form & refund, which will be processed within 14 days.
Products typically are manufactured & shipped within 3 to 6 days of order placement, so if you notify customer services after 3 days of placing the order, the refund will be issued within 14 days, but the refunded amount will vary depending on the shipment status of the order.
9.3 The cancellation period will expire 14 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires, physical possession of the Products. Where you order multiple Products in one order or a Product is delivered in separate parts, lots or pieces, the cancellation period will expire 14 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires, physical possession of the last Product, part, lot or piece that makes up your order.
9.4 To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel your contract with us by making a clear statement within 14 days of delivery (e.g. An email or a telephone call). Products may be returned for a full refund (unless otherwise indicated in the product details) less a £30 courier fee for our pick up service, as long as they meet the following criteria:
- The products are returned in the original packaging.
- The products are returned in un-used, as new, re saleable condition.
- The return is requested within 14 working days of your delivery date.
Once the return has been confirmed by our team, you will be provided with a return label as well as shipment instructions.

These legal rights are not affected by the returns policy in this clause 9 or any of the other general Terms of Sale set out in this Section B. If we are collecting the Products because they are faulty or mis-described, we will refund the price of the Product in full plus any delivery charges.
9.11 We will refund you through the payment method used to place the order.
9.12 If you change your mind and exercise your right to cancel under clause 9.2 above, after delivery, then you must return the Products to us in a resaleable, unused condition.
