Purchase of Products:- The majority of our handmade items are made to order to your specific requirements, therefore they may take up to six weeks to be dispatched to you. If you need an item sooner, do let us know and we will do our best.
Cancellations:- We are unable to cancel any orders once work has commenced. This is because we would have already incurred costs pertaining to your purchase and every order is handmade to order.
Dispatch of Products:- Posted items will be dispatched 4 -6 weeks from purchase. If your items are ready earlier we will dispatch them earlier, notifying you by email once they are sent. All our orders are hand packaged. If for any reason your order arrives in an unsatisfactory condition then you must specify “damaged” when signing for your order, and inform us by email within 24 hours of receipt. Should you not receive your items within a reasonable time, please let us know and we will raise enquiries with the relevant delivery service, whether that be the courier or Royal Mail. If the order was sent by Royal Mail we cannot raise any claims until 30 days after the order was dispatched, which is when the order will be deemed as lost.
Returns:- Under the Consumer Rights Act, you have the right to return your items. However this excludes all bespoke, personalised and custom orders (bespoke pet paintings). Should you wish to return your order, you must notify us within 48 hours of receiving the items that you wish to return them for a refund. A refund will only be processed to you, as long as they are received back with us within 7 days of your receipt of them. You must take reasonable care of the order whilst in your possession. You are responsible for returning the items to us and also the return delivery costs. All goods are sent back at your own risk, we strongly advise that you obtain proof of posting and use recorded or special delivery including the relevant insurance to cover the cost of your return please note, the goods are not our responsibility until we sign for them. We will not process a refund if the items are returned, soiled, damaged, used, smell of smoke, dust, pets or items returned in unsuitable packaging. All qualifying refunds will be processed within 14 days, and will be subject to a £5.00 administration fee, which will be deducted from your refund amount.
Miscellaneous:- All our items are handmade to order, measurements are given to the nearest cm and therefore may slightly differ due to the nature of handmade designs and the variance of the wood or paint used in the construction of the design.
Deposits and Payments - For handmade items, payment may be made in full prior or under an agreed payment scheme.
Copyright - Once I have created the artwork, the copyright remains with me therefore I have the right to use the image as I wish, for example on prints, greeting cards etc....
