Royal Mail 2nd Class Standard Delivery and this has a suggested delivery time of 2-4 days by the royal mail delivery service. If by any chance you have not received your order within this suggested time frame you must contact your local sorting office to see if it has been left there for collection. (It has been known in the past for postmen/women to not leave notification cards of attempted delivery.)This must be done prior to contacting us about a non-delivered order.
Express Delivery is via royal mail 1st class, any orders place before 4pm on a working day we aim to dispatch these the same day and these generally are delivered in 1-2 days. However please see the terms above for 2nd class royal mail for further details on if the order is not received in this timescale.
If for whatever reason you do not receive your order within ten days of the date of dispatch we will not be held responsible for the loss of orders unless you have contacted within 28 days after the original dispatch date. After 10 days we can then help with locating your order and maybe re-issue a duplicate. We shall have no liability to you unless you notify us in writing either at our contact address or via firstname.lastname@example.org within 40 working days from when your goods were ordered. We hold the right to not send out a duplicate order after the 21 day waiting period is up. In the event of a duplicate order being dispatched due to a missing order and the original order eventually shows up you must decline the delivery so it will get sent back to us.
We take pride in processing your order as quickly as possible and Endeavour to dispatch the same day if ordered by 4PM, however at peak times this can vary.
We hold no responsibility if the delivery details you have entered are incorrect and you therefore will incur further charges for duplicate orders and will be liable for any items which have not been received. If by any chance you would like to have a different delivery address from your billing address whether this is a gift for someone or you would like the product sent to your work address the option will be available to you on the payment page by clicking on ‘New Delivery Address’.
For large value orders we reserve the right to hold goods until we have contacted you and received suitable confirmation for the transaction and on occasions further identity proof maybe required. We will contact you via phone and e-mail and if you are not available goods will remain on hold until you have contacted us.
We have an international (certain countries only apply) delivery service available to people living outside of UK, this is at a cost of £12.50 for orders up to 1kg over and above this weight we will contact you will any extra charges that are required. Personalised and all glassware is unfortunately not available for delivery outside the UK mainland. Also if a refund should be required we cannot be held responsible for any differences due to exchange rate changes.
Our office open hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm. We are not open on Bank Holidays. Orders will only be processed and dispatched during these opening times. Please note: Weekends are not classed as working days.
We won’t accept any liability for deliveries not made within our suggested delivery times. (This also includes any extra fees or costs you might or might not incur for any deliveries delayed or missed.) Therefore we cannot guarantee delivery on any certain day unless you have paid for Next Working Day Courier Service and we highly recommend if you require an order within a small time scale to go for the next working day service. Our Standard Delivery is for mainland UK only. Not all postal addresses in UK are covered by our Standard Delivery rate (Due to size and weights of goods). In some cases this will affect Northern Ireland and remote off shore areas of the United Kingdom. If this is the case we will contact you prior to dispatch with any extra postal expenses that you may incur to see if you would still like to go ahead with your order.
Next Working Day Guaranteed delivery by Interlink; this will need a signature upon arrival. Interlink do not operate on Bank Holidays or Saturdays therefore your order will be delivered the following next working day for all orders within the mainland UK (some Scotland, Scottish Highlands and Offshore do not apply). (If an order is placed on the Friday, the order will be with you on the following Monday.) Orders must be placed by 4pm the same day to guarantee next working day delivery (Please note with some orders verification maybe required before dispatch). Most Personalised items cannot be shipped via DPD on a next day delivery as production times for personalised products vary. If you place you order on a Saturday or Sunday please note that you order will be dispatched on Monday for delivery generally between the hours of 9-5 on Tuesday (peak times these may vary). Orders will be delivered generally between the hours of 9-5 unfortunately we are unable to advise on the exact time of delivery within these time scales as it depends on where you are placed on the couriers route for the day and if it is a busy time of year the delivery times may be done outside the general 9-5 timescale. If for any reason you will not be in all day on the day of delivery you can request that the parcel can be left with a neighbour etc by adding a note within the gift tag message box within the payment page. When the courier delivers a signature will be required and if signed for by a neighbour a card should be left in your door by the courier to let you know where you can collect this.

Recycling of Electrical Goods:
The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.
The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK. Recycling reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.
We are obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us. Customers must return their like-for-like WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item. Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol and be disposed of separately from normal household waste.
In the event that your are unhappy with the service you have received from our business then we want to hear about it and we will do our best to put it right.
