Service Terms and User Agreement
Long story short
We are here for you, trying to help to the fullest of our capability, working with you. Rest easy knowing we are doing our best, and if something goes wrong, we will fix it. We love our happy customers so let's talk to keep everything running smoothly
Conditions of order:You confirm to 'Contrado Imaging Ltd' [the seller] you own or have permission to use the designs and image[s]. We regret we are unable to give refunds. In the unlikely event of manufacturing fault, it will be repaired. You accept that a design (except vector) or photograph when enlarged may lose some definition and that colour variation may occur in finished item.
- Within 30 minutes: we wait 30 minutes after you place your order before we start making it. Within these 30 minutes, you are welcome to contact us if you wish to edit or if you change your mind. If you have any questions about your order or have any doubts about your design get in touch with our friendly customer service team who will be more than happy to help and can offer a full refund.
- After 30 minutes: we handmake every product and personalise it to order, so as soon as we start production of your bespoke items, we have already invested into the ink, transfer paper, materials and the workforce time specifically for your order. This means that if you wish to cancel after 30 minutes of placing the order, a mandatory 20% charge will incur.
