  • If after 6 weeks and no payments received, the item you have placed on lay-by will be put back for sale.

A refund can be given, upon you providing the lay-by docket and our records checked. Please talk to us if a problem arises with your lay-by.

Items Out of Stock

As you know we carry a large range of items. Although we try to keep all website items in stock, alot of the stock is part of the (bricks and mortar) shop stock. This means that on occasion items will sell out and we will not have a chance to update the website. If you order something that becomes out of stock, we will provide you with a refund for any item/s not in stock that have been paid for at the time of shipping.

Colours: We rely on you, our client to know and be aware of colours that are prone to vary and understand the variances that can occur with print. Although colours specified in artwork proofs are correct, these cannot be matched specifically to your screen or a job that has been printed previously. Colour variations may also vary from different printer calibrations along with the printing process itself.
