Terms & Conditions
This website, found under the www.illustries.com URL, is operated by Illustries Ltd. References to Illustries Ltd and ‘we’, ‘us’ and ‘our’ shall be deemed to be references to Illustries Ltd. References to ‘you’, and ‘your’ shall be deemed to be references to person placing an order via the www.illustries.com website.
You must be over 16 to place an order with us. When you place an order with us it will be deemed that you have read, understood and agreed to these Terms & Conditions. If you are unhappy with any part of these terms and conditions, you should contact us before placing an order with us either by phone on 0845 468 1610 or by emailing email@example.com or by post at the address given below.
By placing an order through our website you are making an offer to Illustries Ltd to purchase the goods outlined in your order upon the terms described in your order.
When you place an order, we will require your name, email address, credit/debit card, phone and address details. This information is required in order to process your request or inform you of acceptance of our order. A contact phone number is needed so that we can get in touch if there is a problem with your order. We may, unless you inform us otherwise, provide our couriers with your contact phone number in case they need to reach you to arrange the delivery of your order.
After placing an order online, we will provide you with confirmation that your order has been received but this is not confirmation that your offer to buy the items has been accepted. Our contract for the sale of our products will only exist once an order has been accepted, processed and dispatched to you.
Please note that we will not be able to meet any obligations as a result of the following reasons:
- If the product you ordered is out of stock
- We are unable to authorise your payment
- If it is identified that there is a product description or pricing error
- If customers do not reach any order criteria outlined in the Terms & Conditions
- If our delivery companies are temporarily unable to deliver due to exceptional conditions that are beyond our control including hazardous weather and accidents.
Should there be an issue with your order, we will contact you either by phone or email. Please ensure that you check all items on receipt, as faulty or damaged items must be reported within eight working days of receiving the parcel.
Illustries Ltd reserve the right to reject any offer of purchase by you at any point. Please note that whilst we will make every effort and reasonable care to keep your order details and payment secure, we cannot be responsible for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any information that you supply when accessing or ordering from the Illustries Ltd website.
When placing an order you will automatically be added to our mailing list. However should you wish to not receive mailings, please inform our Customer Services team and they will remove you from our list.
Product Pricing & Descriptions

Please note that we are unable to confirm the price of a product until your order is accepted in line with our order acceptance conditions.
Delivery timescales for your product are listed with the product details. Generally, we aim to deliver unpersonailsed orders within 3-5 working days of receipt of payment. Personalised orders will be delivered within 5 weeks of client approval.

Please note however that we pride ourselves on our commitment to the highest levels of customer service and will consider cases on a case by case basis, subject to the situation, after this period.
Should you wish to cancel your order prior to dispatch, please contact us on 0845 468 1610 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can inform us by posting the notice to our address below. If your order has already been dispatched we will be more than happy to offer you an exchange or, if you wish, a refund provided that the products are returned complete and in a reasonable condition. Where possible we would ask that you return the items with the original packaging. With the exception of faulty items or goods damaged in transit, please note that we are not responsible for return postage. Where goods are delivered to a third party you will need to be able to return the goods you ordered to us to be able to exercise this right.
Returns Policy & Making Returns
In the unlikely event that a parcel arrives damaged or faulty or you wish to return it, you must contact us within 8 working days of receiving the parcel by email at email@example.com. Please note that all items need to be returned within 30 days complete and in a reasonable condition and that personalised/made to order products may not be returned unless faulty. Where possible we would ask that you return the item(s) with the original packaging. This does not affect your statutory rights.

Obligations of Illustries Ltd
Illustries Ltd will supply the bespoke or personalised product ordered no later than 5 weeks after receiving client photographs and all other information required to create the product.

Illustries will create the bespoke product, and an electronic proof will be created with all text and images in place.
