Delivery will be made as soon as possible. Our normal working hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 5.30pm. We only process and dispatch orders during these timescales. All delivery and dispatch timescales quoted on the website do not include weekends or bank holidays.

Order cancellations

 

For most items, you have the legal right to cancel your order within 7 working days of receiving the goods. However, this does not apply to certain items which we have made, personalised or customised specifically for you.

 

Order cancellations must be made in writing, quoting your order number, within 7 working days beginning the day after the day on which the item is delivered.

 

If you wish to cancel your order you can notify us by email to info@alphabetsandanimals.com or by telephone (07949643241) before we have dispatched the goods to you or

 

Where goods have already been dispatched to you, the goods must be returned to us in accordance with the 'Returns and exchange' section below.

 

Please note: In order to provide a fast service some products are immediately sent for production. Please check your order on screen and the confirmation email carefully as we cannot refund products which have been mis-spelt.

 

We reserve the right to cancel your order at any time and issue a full refund.

 

The provisions of this clause do not affect your statutory rights.

 

Returns and exchange

If you are not completely satisfied with the goods, simply return them to us at any time within 14 working days of receipt. If goods are returned within 7 working days of receipt we will issue a full refund including postage and packaging, or an exchange. After 7 working days we will refund the cost of the order minus the postage and packaging charge paid. The costs of returning goods to us shall be borne by you.

 

The item is your responsibility until it reaches us. For your own protection, we recommend that you send the parcel back to using a delivery service that insures you for the value of the goods as we cannot be held responsible for items damaged or lost in the post.

 

Your rights to return the goods to us will not apply in the following circumstances:

 

-Any products that we have made, personalised or customised specifically for you

-Where, in our opinion, you have not taken reasonable care of goods whilst in your possession and have not been returned with the original packaging.

- If you have made a spelling mistake on your order and it has been sent for production.

 

If you return an item because of an error on our part, or because it is defective, we will happily refund the full value of the item and your costs in returning it to us. Please contact us at info@alphabetsandanimals.com

 

The item(s) must be returned in the condition in which you received it within 30 days of delivery. By the very individual nature of personalised products, they cannot be re-sold, and therefore we cannot accept returns if you have a change of mind.

 

We regret that postage and packing costs for unwanted items cannot be refunded after 7 working days from when the order was delivered.

 

Please note:

• You have a duty to return the item to us and the cost of doing so is your responsibility, except if the item is faulty or does not comply with the contract.

• The parcel can take up to 7 working days to be returned to our Warehouse, unless sent via special delivery.

 

This returns policy does not affect your statutory rights.
