Colours matching

Although we have endeavoured to try to give you the closest possible match to colours on our site with different computers having different colour profiles, monitors and graphics cards it would be impossible to guarantee a like for like match, please only use on screen colours as a guide.

Ribbon Colours vs Print Colours

Please note that Print colours do not offer a like for like colour cross match with ribbon colours. We also use use ribbons from different suppliers and can not always guarantee a exact match in ribbons colours from one order to another.

My Design 'a' Sash layout is not the same as on screen

Please note the design a sash tool is to be used as a layout guide only, in some cases if a line of print is too small or too large we may need to enlarge / reduce the size of text for the following reasons: It may not print, the font size will not fit withing the print area, the style of font is too fine for smaller text. This is a standard procedure and will be done automatically to ensure the best use of the printable area.

I do not like the layout or font style of my order

Please be as clear as possible when placing your order and we will follow your instructions to avoid this issue from arising. Sometimes your ideas will just not work when put into production, If this is the case we will keep as close to your initial request as possible but 'sashes.co.uk'  also hold the right to amend any text layout, colour and font styles to achieve the best looking end result without notification. If you have not specified any colour, size or font style when ordering by phone, email or web, 'sashes.co.uk'  accept this as you allowing us to choose on your behalf without any further notification or proofing.

Spelling mistakes / Case sensitivity.

The main reason we ask for orders to be submitted through our site or in writing is to avoid this problem, please do not ask to order over the phone as we will have to refuse. Before submitting an email or order we ask you to carefully read through what has been ordered as we will only print what is submitted:
Some customers use a play on words & it is impossible for us to check every word in every order, in some cases we have corrected words only to be told it was meant to be spelt incorrect! Your order is not case sensitive and we hold the right to space & use upper - lower case as we think best to produce a better looking end result as sometimes a font style may just look wrong or be unreadable if we print all in upper-case as requested.

Why are our prices + VAT / Do I have to pay import charges?

As you are buying direct from us the manufacturers all our prices are ex. VAT, this largely because we deal with a lot of "Trade" customers who prefer to see prices before vat it added. VAT is not an unusual thing as many stores do charge VAT but have added it to their prices before you see it, please note that VAT will be added to your order & delivery at the current  UK rate on all orders with no exceptions. Any customs or import duties are levied once the package reaches its destination country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you may want to contact your local customs office for further information.

Unfortunately, we cannot advise you in advance of a reduced product or reimburse you the difference after you have placed an order
