Whilst every effort will be made to meet the estimated timescales for a given order timescales are not guaranteed and we accept no liability or consequential loss for either delays to or non-delivery of your order.

You acknowledge and agree that we are only willing to provide our products and framing services if you agree that our liability is limited.
N.B. For our liability for artwork or items left for framing, please see clause 2.3.2
We will not, under any circumstances be liable for any consequential loss as a result of the incorrect supply, late delivery, accidental misrepresentation or any other reason whatsoever whether avoidable or not.
We have worked hard to ensure our website and specifications are up to date, however the risk of error remains; where we do identify a mistake, or it is brought to our attention we will rectify it as soon as possible.
Colours of frames, mouldings and mounts viewed via our website may appear different shades on different monitors, tablets, phones and laptops. Where the exact colour and finish is vital please note that you can order moulding and mount samples via our website or in person in our shop.
In addition, as the mouldings and mounts are made from natural materials, inherent disparities in colour and grain pattern are, at times, unavoidable.
These natural variations can occur from batch to batch therefore, despite our best efforts, we cannot always guarantee an exact match to products from previous orders.
All orders must be paid for in full before they can be collected or dispatched.
Where a credit account has been agreed, payment of the price and the VAT shall be due within 30 days of the day of the invoice, unless otherwise agreed in writing.
We reserve the right to charge interest on overdue invoices which shall accrue from the date when the payment becomes due, calculated on a daily basis until the date of the payment at the rate of 5% per annum above the bank of England base rate from time to time in force, such interest shall accrue after and as well as before any judgement.
The buyer shall pay all accounts in full and not exercise any right of set-off or counter claim against invoices submitted by the seller.
Risk shall pass on either collection from our premises or the delivery of the goods to the buyer's address.
Notwithstanding the earlier passing of risk, title in the goods shall remain with the seller and shall not pass to the buyer until the amount due under the invoice for them (including interest and costs) has been paid in full.
We ask that completed orders are collected within 2 months.
Upon collection the buyer shall inspect and examine the goods/services supplied.
Collection by the buyer shall be deemed to be acceptance that they are satisfactory and meet expectations.
We would appreciate it if you could collect your completed order once it is ready since we have limited storage space and therefore we reserve the right to charge a storage fee of £1.00 ex VAT per day on orders that are uncollected after 90 days.
