Terms & Conditions.

Please ensure that at the time of placing your order, all details are correct and you have ordered the correct item(s) and the delivery address is correct. We prefer not to accept telephone orders for "Personalised" products. However, if placing an order via the telephone, please ensure all spelling and punctuation is correct. We cannot be held responsible for any errors made via verbal orders.

We have recently become independent from our parent company and are currently V.A.T exempt -
No V.A.T is chargeable or claimable against any order placed with us.

COLOUR / WIDTH SELECTION: In certain sections of the website, we have placed colour charts - these are to give you an indication of the colour, but due to different computer monitors, these swatches must not be relied upon as a definite colour - if you are in anyway unsure of the colour or width, please ask for a sample prior to ordering - we cannot accept responsibility if the colour or width of your ribbon is not as you thought - we offer free samples for your assurance. If you do place an order and the colour or width is not as expected, we will accept a return for a refund minus a 20% restocking fee minus postage. PLEASE NOTE: This does not apply to bespoke products - these are not eligible for return unless faulty. Ribbon colours can vary from batch to batch, this is a normal occurrence in the manufacturing process and we have no control over this and therefore cannot be held responsible for any colour variation. We reserve the right to substitute standard ribbon / foil colours to the nearest shade – Every effort will be made to contact you (the customer) in this instance.

Please Note: With repeat orders etc. we cannot guarantee to match shades of ribbon / foil unless it is ordered together in a specific batch.

Ribbon Widths: All of our ribbons carry a +/- 2mm tolerance on widths - this is due to the manufacturing process of woven ribbon.

Customer Supplied Ribbon: There may be some minor loss of meterage in printing customer supplied ribbon due to the setting up processes etc. It is therefore advisable to include at least 10m additional ribbon to take account of this.

Cutting/Heat Sealing: Our cutting / Heat Sealing process has a tolerance of +/- 10mm – This is due to the stretching properties of woven ribbons.

Ribbon Use:
Printed ribbon has been developed for decorative purposes only and customers should satisfy themselves that the product is suitable for the application intended. As with most printed items, rough handling and excessive abrasion may lift the print in certain circumstances. Therefore care should be taken when handling. The majority of printed ribbon is not washable – If washable print is required, please contact us for information regarding this process.

Whilst the ribbon manufactures keep joins to a minimum, we cannot guarantee that a print run will be free of joins. We will guarantee that all orders of 3m or less contain no joins.

We provide a free sample service by request for colour matching, Font size, Purpose of use and quality prior to print. If a customer decided to proceed with an order without requesting a sample, the customer accepts responsibility for the final print run. We can not be held responsible for a print run that has been completed without a sample request unless proven to be faulty.
Origination / Printing Plate
If a printing plate is to be made, we will keep this plate for repeat orders saving the cost of an additional plate being used for a repeat order of the same artwork / design. If there are no repeat orders after 3 years, for storage space the plate will be disposed of and another plate will need to be etched after this time.

With all bespoke printing, payment must be received and cleared prior to a print run. We accept Credit Cards, Paypal, Personal Cheques or BACS Payments.

If paying by Cheque, please make payable to: FOUR SEASONS VILLAGE (Cheques will be cleared prior to despatch) If paying by BACS, please contact us for transfer details.
