Distance Selling Regulations and order cancellation
To cancel or amend an order, please IMMEDIATELY send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating the order number and full details, with the reason for cancellation. If the printing process has not already started (our factory works 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday and reserve the right to commence work on your order immediately upon receipt) we will confirm a refund, less our cancellation fee. If design and layout work has commenced and a proof has been submitted, we reserve the right to charge for the work involved up to the point of cancellation notwithstanding that the design layout and artwork process may have been offered without charge as part of the whole order.
Regretably, once the actual printing process has started, we are unable to cancel any order or refund any payment.
Our only terms of payment are strictly payment in full upon placing the order. For cancellation details, see above.
