Passing of Title and Risk
The risk of the goods shall pass to you on delivery. All goods, delivered or not, remain our property until payment is received in full. Until such time as payment in full is made, you shall retain such goods separately from other goods and clearly mark them in such a way that they can be readily identified as being our property and any payment received by you for any sale of such goods must be held in a separate account in trust for us. In the event of non-payment by you for such goods we will, without loss of any rights or remedy, remove from your possession those goods belonging to us in accordance with these terms and conditions and we shall be entitled upon the property where the goods are stored and repossess and remove the same.

Quotations and Contracts
Orders are accepted subject to our right to adjust prices quoted to take account of any changes in the law or Government regulations requiring us to increase prices by way of direct taxation, import duties, customs and excise duties or otherwise. The prices are based on today's current costs of production and in the event of any increase in wages or costs of materials to us occurring after the confirmation or accepted contract, we shall be entitled to charge such increases to you. All quotations are valid at the time of quoting, error and omissions excluded.
Where applicable all prices are subject to VAT at the current rate. Prices quoted on this website are guide prices only subject to viewing final artwork.

In most cases pricing is for non-branded items, without setup costs, printing costs, shipping and handling fees, and any other potential product specific costs.

Whilst we aim to notify you at point of sale or enquiry, we reserve the right to alter our pricing without notice and refuse or cancel any orders placed on mis-priced product.

All deliveries will be charged at the prevailing rates applying at the date of such delivery. Special express deliveries can usually be arranged but will usually be subject to additional charges (e.g. express print charges and express delivery charges) that will be charged to you at current commercial rates. Lead times will be deemed to commence at the date and time that the Company receive in writing, "signed off" approval of the artwork that the Company supplied to the client, and payment is received in full where applicable. Due to the bespoke nature of the goods ordered, no loss or liability is accepted for delay or error in delivery date.

All artwork and printing charges will be levied where necessary unless previously stipulated by us. Where applicable the prices shown do not include artwork and are advertised as unimprinted. For customisation, additional print colours and positions of printing pricing will be presented on a quotation basis. Print tolerance refers to the variation of print location in mass production. Due to the manufacturing process on some items, items printed within the same batch may have a variation of up to 5mm on the final product.
Changes to Artwork
In order to print efficiently from the artwork, you supply, it may be necessary to adjust or redraw your artwork. You will be advised of the changes made. No printing will take place until the Company has received in writing your "signed off" approval of the artwork. In order to sign off your artwork we will send you an artwork approval form via email illustrating how your artwork will look on your chosen product. This MUST be checked thoroughly and signed off. The job will not commence until we have received in writing this signed off approval. You must notify us of any discrepancy in the artwork or order as we DO NOT accept any liability of any post-completion errors or omissions. In some cases, issues or concerns with the artwork cannot be identified at visual stage and will become apparent during production. In this instance you will be notified of any issues, and/or changes required. No liability is accepted for any delay caused due to required artwork changes. As a result of changes if cancellation is requested please refer to article 11 for any cancellation fees.
Due to the variety of materials and the various printing processes utilised by the Company and its suppliers, no guarantee can be given to match exact pantone/CMYK colours provided by the client. The Company will endeavour to match as closely as possible to these colour references but cannot be held liable for any further costs that may arise. If no pantone/CMYK match has been requested in writing, with reference to the relevant colour code then the closest stock print colour will be printed.
