In the event of non payment by you for such goods we will, without loss of any rights or remedy, remove from your possession those goods belonging to us in accordance with these conditions and we shall be entitled to enter upon the property where the goods are stored and repossess and remove the same. You hereby grant us irrevocable licence to enter your premises for the said purposes.

We reserve the right to alter any details or design of products illustrated without notice. Should the specification of any product ordered be different than as described, you will be notified as to these changes before your order is actioned. You may reject any goods which do not correspond to your requirements at the time you placed the order – notwithstanding any agreement in writing you have made as to any known differences. All images contained on this site are for illustrative purposes only and the products may be subject to slight variations in specification (such as colour tone or finish) due to batch production.

9. Quotation and Contracts :

Orders are accepted subject to our right to adjust prices quoted to take account of any changes in the law or Government regulation requiring us to increase prices by way of direct taxation, import duties, customs and excise duties or otherwise. Should any increase be necessary before your order is accepted by us, we shall notify you of such increases and give you the opportunity to continue with the order or cancel.

Where payment is made before delivery we shall always refund for any discrepancies below the quantity ordered.

11. Claims :

Save in so far as defects in the goods cause death, injury or damage to personal property, our liability for any loss or damaged suffered by you in respect of the goods shall be limited to the contract value of the goods.

No goods will be delivered on accounts, which remain unpaid 14 days after payment is due. Interest will be charged on overdue accounts, at the rate of 10% above the our bank base rate from the date the account became due until payment is received. This does not prevent us from pursuing payment of overdue accounts at any time after payment becomes due and shall be in addition to and without prejudice to any other rights we may have against you. We reserve the right to charge you for any legal or collection charges where it is necessary to obtain payment from you of an overdue account through a third party or Court proceedings.

If you supply your own prints there will be a cutting charge of £12, an insertion charge of £12, and £30 or £35 origination charge. Failure to supply film to size will result in charges being raised for artwork. Whilst every effort is taken to match your company colours, no guarantee can be given, since a chemical reaction occurs when the ink is placed upon the product.
