Effects of cancellation If you cancel, we will reimburse to you any payments received from you up to the total of the items cancelled, this does not include the costs of delivery should the goods be dispatched. We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you.

  5. Made to Order/Bespoke Items

    Items that are manufactured to order or tailor made cannot be returned or exchanged unless they are faulty. These products include, but are not limited to, all custom printed products.

  6. Requesting a video/photo

    When you experience an issue with your item, our customer team may ask for a video or photo to help with the case. This is required so that our customer support team are able to open a case log for you. This case log then also gets passed across to our trained technician team who will pick up the case and look into your issue for you. This means that each case is dealt with individually and has the time and expertise it deserves.

    If a warranty return is needed, then the case log which includes the video/picture will help to speed up the process of the investigation from the technicians when they receive the original item. Sometimes, on some occasions it may be that when the unit is returned back to us, the technicians cannot find the same fault, the unit suddenly starts acting differently to first reported, or the same sequin of events of the issue may not occur. Therefore, if the technician does have the video, it will help the technicians have more flexibility when issuing the final report on how the case needs to be resolved. Please note, on some occasions, if a video or photo request if denied, this will mean the unit will undergo thorough checks in order to understand the issue you are having which can cause delays to the turnaround of the returns case.

  7. Incorrect items

    We do everything possible to try and minimise the risk of incorrect items being dispatched out to our customers however, sometimes mistakes do happen and it is our utmost priority to try and resolve this in the quickest, most efficient way possible. If the incorrect item has been received then we do request that this is notified to us within the first 14 days of receiving the item. If this is reported after this time, we may not be able to carry out our necessary internal investigations in order to get this resolved. Therefore, the case may be closed.

    We then request for the incorrect item to be returned to our warehouse in the first 28 days of purchase. If an incorrect item is reported then please kindly note, we must receive the original item back in our warehouse before we are able to issue a replacement for the item. Unfortunately, we are unable to authorise any replacements to be sent out without receiving the original item back first.
