Should you continue to use the site, and/or place an order, this constitutes complete acceptance of these terms and conditions.

  1. Payment

PayPal is my preferred method of payment and orders will only be actioned once checkout and payment has been completed and I have issued you an order acceptance email (see clause 13).

  1. Cancellation

Please notify me via email at jo@toastedcrumpet.co.uk if you would like to cancel your order. Due to the nature of my gifts, they could well be in design and production process and therefore this is subject to the discrepancy of Toasted Crumpet. These Terms & Conditions are in addition to your statutory rights as a consumer, which remain unaffected. Orders will not be regarded as cancelled until you have received a response from me acknowledging cancellation.

  1. Production and delivery times

When I confirm your order I will give you a guideline delivery date. I know that timing is important, particularly for gifts, and guideline delivery dates are given in good faith. However, because this is a piece of art, unfortunately they cannot be guaranteed. As a guide, I aim to complete your artwork within 14 days however it may take up to 28 days during peak periods, but given the individual nature of the process and the parties that are involved to complete the production of your gift, I will confirm this when you order. I will do my best to let you know if there is a delay for any reason.

If you have a specific date you need your gift for, please contact me at jo@toastedcrumpetd.co.uk and I will do my very best to get your product to you in time. Please note that as all personalised prints are individually created by hand it is not always possible for me to do so.

I aim to deliver all UK orders within 3 working days of completion of the artwork. If, for any reason I expect a longer delivery time, you will be contacted immediately.

  1. Artistic interpretation

I am an artist; when you place an order with Toasted Crumpet Designs, you are commissioning a piece of art.

Each personalised print is custom-made and represents my artistic interpretation of the requested personalisation, for example the positioning and size of text. Whether you request a proof or not, by confirming and paying for your order you accept that the goods provided will be a work of art, with all elements of the composition subject to the creation and interpretation of the artist.

I cannot be held responsible for differences of artistic interpretation and all artistic decisions remain with me.

  1. Product availability

I endeavour to have all our products available on demand. However, due to the majority of my gifts being handmade to order, occasionally during peak periods some gifts may have longer lead times. If so Toasted Crumpet Designs will inform you immediately of any delays or subsequent unavailability. Any of my items which are unavailable will show this message on my website.

  1. ALL PRODUCTS SOLD BY TOASTED CRUMPET DESIGNS ARE FOR DISPLAY PURPOSES ONLY AND ARE NOT TOYS.
  2. Delivery address

Your order will be delivered to the address given at the time of the order. During checkout you will be given the option of entering a different delivery address if required.

  1. Returns

I want you to be 100% satisfied with your purchase. If, however, any items do not meet your expectations, please contact me upon receipt, and I will do my best to rectify the situation.

Frames or prints that are personalised, bespoke or made-to-order to your specific requirements are non-refundable and can only be returned if they are faulty, an error has occured or they have been mis-described. Unfortunately, because each product is an individual piece of art, once the order is confirmed and payment is received I cannot accept returns or give refunds.  Should your frame or print not correspond with your specific instructions, for example, a spelling mistake made in error by us, then we will either send a replacement print or offer a full refund. Please note however that any spelling or punctuation errors made by the customer will not be refunded. It is the responsibility of the customer when placing an order to ensure the accuracy of any text required.  PLEASE CHECK WHEN ENTERING INFORMATION ON PERSONALISED PRODUCTS CAREFULLY.

This policy does not affect your consumer legal rights where goods are faulty or mis-described.

Any refund agreed by Toasted Crumpet will be given in the form of the original method of payment. Goods should be received back with me as new and the packaging encasing any unframed print should not have been opened. Customers are advised to obtain a Royal Mail tracking number on the returned goods. I cannot be held responsible for lost or stolen parcels.

  1. Faulty or damaged goods

Every effort is made to make sure your goods arrive in perfect condition. Please check delivery contents as soon as possible after delivery. In the unlikely event of your goods being damaged in transit, please report problems to me promptly as a delay might jeopardise any claim.

If you believe your item is faulty or damaged, please email me at jo@toastedcrumpet.co.uk detailing, in full, the damage or fault relating to your order. Please provide photographic evidence to support your claim; this will speed the process up, particularly if it involves a third party (e.g. the courier).
