Physical Product information

The products on this website come from the United Kingdom. They are printed to order and undergo a quality check both before and after production. Due to variances in printing technologies and the surfaces to be printed onto, colour rendition may differ from product to product. This is entirely normal and should be expected.

The appearance of product images on the website are mock-ups and slight colour variation may be apparent between the image and the actual item once received. Likewise, colours may appear to vary from device to device. As far as reasonably possible, we have produced the images to be as accurate to the physical item as possible.


Shipping is calculated by your geographical area and the weight of the items in your order. Prices vary depending on your location and weight, and you are always charged the lowest amount possible for your shipping costs. Shipping costs change regularly, and we ensure we keep them up to date on the site so you are not over or under charged.

Right to Cancel Product Purchases

You have the right to cancel the purchase of a good without having to give a reason at any time within the “cooling off period” of fourteen days, beginning on the day after you receive the goods.
