When returning items you are strongly recommended to obtain proof of posting. We cannot accept responsibility for parcels lost in transit.
Please note that the colour settings and the type of your computer monitor that you use to view images online prior to ordering a print have an influence on the perception of how your image should look. You should be aware that images viewed in the majority of web browsers and computer monitor are not colour accurate, and that prints may look slightly different. There is also variation between different paper types. For these reasons, prints will not be accepted as defective on the grounds of a subjective judgement of imperfect colour accuracy.
Provided that your complaint is confirmed as valid, your request will be honoured as soon as possible.
