Business Stationery Terms & Conditions
Terms and Conditions for Business Stationery.
By placing an order for business stationery, you're agreeing to these terms and conditions.
1. Orders, Payment & Cancellations
1.1. You need to pay the full balance upfront because all our business stationery items are custom-made and cannot be restocked.
1.2. If you cancel an order after you've paid in full and we've started printing, we can't provide a full refund. We'll refund a percentage based on the work completed if the order isn't finished.
1.3. Additional services like bespoke design work will be charged separately and are non-refundable once booked.
1.4. If we need to reschedule orders due to unforeseen circumstances, we'll inform you. You have the option to cancel for a complete reimbursement, but we'll also suggest alternatives to consider.
2. Proofing and Approval
2.1. Before full production begins, we'll show you a test print of the business stationery.
2.2. You can review the test prints and request up to 2 significant changes. Further modifications may have additional costs.
2.3. If you approve the test prints, we'll proceed with printing once you've paid in full. If you approve prints with errors and they've been printed, we can't offer a refund or replacement unless it's our mistake.
2.4. Any documents you provide with names, locations, etc., are considered final. We're not responsible for errors in those documents.
3. Delivery and Collection
3.1. Unless we've made other arrangements, we'll send the business stationery to the delivery address you specified. Please double-check the address for accuracy.
3.2. We use Royal Mail's 24 Hour Tracked delivery with a signature service.
3.3. We won't be held responsible for delays or delivery failures beyond our control.
3.4. If you choose to collect the business stationery, you're responsible for ensuring safe transportation.
3.5. Because our products are handmade, delivery times may vary depending on our current order volume. We aim to post orders within 2 weeks, and we'll confirm the estimated delivery date via email after receiving payment.
4. Liability and Indemnity
4.1. We won't be liable for any loss or damage to the business stationery after it's been delivered or collected.
5. Returns & Refunds
5.1. Unfortunately, customised items can't be returned or refunded unless they're incorrect or damaged.

5.3. A refund can be considered if the following requirements are met:
- The non customised products are unused and in the same condition as received.
- The non customised products are returned within 21 days of purchase.
- The products are non-customised/non-personalised.
5.4. You're responsible for any return postage costs, unless otherwise agreed.
5.5. If the item isn't returned in its original condition, you're responsible for any loss in value.

6.2. For a full refund, you may need to send the damaged items back, and we'll clarify this in our communications.
6.3. Failure to provide evidence of damage within 48 hours may waive your rights to a replacement or refund.
7. Product Quality & Expiry
7.1. Our items are made with freshly formed seed paper. To ensure optimal germination, use them within 18 months of delivery.
7.2. We test all paper sheets before supply, but we can't control the actual germination process due to various factors.
7.3. We'll always recommend the best outcome for germination, and if you choose a design with heavy ink coverage like a complete background, we'll discuss this with you before placing the order.
7.4. Since our products are handmade, they may slightly vary in size, shape, and weight.
8. Data Protection
8.1 We value your privacy and handle your personal information in line with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) regulations.
8.2 Unless you request strict confidentiality in advance, we may showcase materials we've created for you online and on social media.
