Terms and Conditions
There are two options for consultation available.
- Personal face to face consultations are available
(local only). The added advantage of choosing this option is that time is completely focused on you to discuss your requirements. You will be able to take advantage of being able to physically see the finished product before you make the decision to go ahead with your order.
- Telephone/online consultations. All correspondence will be made via email or if discussing via the Facebook page, private message. Samples are available via photograph. Contracts will be provided va email and will require an electronic signature by return to confirm an order has been placed.
A personal consultation, includes a 2 hour appointment to discuss your requirements and wedding stationery in detail and production of a sample once the design has been finalised. A second appointment for you to view the sample can be made if the final design had not been clarified before the initial visit. Further visits to discuss later stages of your stationery, i.e Order of Service, can also be arranged if required.
PLACING YOUR ORDER
If you are happy with the result of the consultation and would like to book your stationery, an estimate will be provided detailing a breakdown of costs along with a copy of the terms and conditions and declaration forms. The declarations will need to be completed and returned either by post or electronically via email.
For orders under £100, payment will be required in full to confirm your booking. A 50% non-refundable booking fee is required to secure your order and cover the cost of materials for orders £100 - £200 and for orders of £200 and above a 25% non-refundable booking fee will be required.
