Please note, personalised items cannot be returned unless they are damaged. Once personalised items have gone to print, they cannot be returned. Some of the products you can buy from us, are non-personalised.

You must return the unused non-personalised product to us within 14 days of notifying us of the cancellation, and must pay the cost of returning the product to our address. We will refund the purchase price minus any postage costs incurred within 14 days. However, if the value of the product has been reduced by any handling of it beyond what is necessary to check whether the product is as expected, we may deduct an amount to reflect that reduction in value from the sum we refund to you. Note that the value of a product may be reduced to nothing if its seal (or similar) is broken. Please follow any returns procedure for non-personalised products which we specify from time to time.
