The following terms and conditions are the terms on which Tolley Badges Ltd (“the Company”) sells products and supersedes all other terms and conditions relating to those products.
IMPORTANT NOTES / TERMS & CONDITIONS, PLEASE ENSURE YOU HAVE READ & UNDERSTOOD.
No order can be accepted unless you have received a written quotation from us prior to ordering.
Orders can only be accepted from persons 18 years or over.
*Orders can only be invoiced to the person who submits the order and they are responsible for payment. We may invoice to a third party if they give us their written consent. If a third parties name is submitted without this consent being given it will be disregarded and the goods will be invoiced to the person who orders.
ARTWORK. Finished artwork based on your submitted design/design brief will be sent before production. PRODUCTION WILL NOT COMMENCE UNTIL WE HAVE RECEIVED APPROVAL OF ARTWORK. Please note that we do not make any additional charges for artwork and origination based on your original design/description submitted with your order – this is all included in our quoted prices. However, once our finished artwork has been submitted to you, based on the instructions given by you at the time of ordering (on our order form or on your artwork), should you wish to make any alterations or changes whatsoever, then a subsidised charge of £30 plus VAT will be levied for additional graphics work and time involved. Obviously, if we have made a mistake then the artwork will be amended free of charge, this is why you must carefully check the finished artwork for any mistakes, we cannot be held responsible for any mistakes after you have approved. Any additional charges will be added to your final invoice unless a request for payment is made by ourselves in advance. All repeat orders will be based on previous patterns so no artwork will be forwarded.
DST Files: If you request the DST file of your completed design for other products, we make the following charge:
Up to 3” (75mm) – £20.00 + VAT, Up to 4½” (115mm) – £35.00 + VAT, Larger sizes – prices available on request. Please note: we do not guarantee that DST files will be compatible with other supplier/manufacturers machines and therefore no refunds will be offered.
COLOUR MATCHING. If your bespoke design requires any specific colours, please provide pantone references, samples or colour swatches. Colours will be matched as closely as manufacturing processes allow, but please note that slight differences may occur. If colours are critical, please ask for a physical sample to be produced for colour matching purposes. This will add a further two weeks on to delivery times but will allow for colour (NOT design) changes to be made. Please note that images on our website, or those sent by e-mail will vary in colour from monitor to monitor and are not always an accurate representation of actual colours.
ADAPT-A-BADGE: Please ensure that you have thoroughly checked your wording (including spelling, spaces and punctuation) when ordering from our personalised, template range. Tolley Badges Ltd will not be responsible for any errors made by the customer when submitting the wording on our order form. The wording submitted will be assumed to be correct and will be reproduced exactly as entered on the order form. All lettering will be reproduced in upper case.
Orders will not proceed into production until full payment has been received.
SCOUT & GUIDE LOGOS. Designs featuring the Scout “fleur-de-lys” or Girlguiding “trefoil” logos can only be accepted if ordered by a bona fide Scout or Girlguiding member.
DELIVERY TIMES. Please note that delivery times vary on a day to day basis and are very much subject to seasonal fluctuation. For this reason the approximate delivery times stated on your quotation may have changed by the time you order. If your order is subject to a deadline date requirement this must be stated on your order. If a date is not stated on your order we cannot guarantee a delivery date and the delivery time will be at the current lead time, which may vary on a day to day basis. Deadline dates sooner than our quoted delivery times can only be accepted by prior arrangement. Please telephone before placing your order.
QUANTITIES. As mentioned in our literature, although we will endeavour to supply the exact quantity ordered, due to the manufacturing processes involved in a bespoke item, it is often difficult to produce a exact quantity. In common with trade practice, we reserve the right to supply plus or minus 5% of the quantity ordered. Only the quantity supplied will be charged.
METHOD OF DESPATCH. A signature / proof of dispatch will be obtained by ourselves at the point of dispatch of your order, we are not responsible for your order beyond this point. Any correspondence or claims relating to late or non delivery of your order must be made directly with the couriers and not with ourselves. Recorded delivery and consignment numbers can be obtained by phone from ourselves. Small orders are always despatched by Royal Mail First Class Recorded Delivery and larger orders by courier, on a Next Day Delivery service, by both methods a signature will always be required on delivery and if it is likely that no one will be available at your address to accept parcels, you may wish to let us have an alternative address – this must be stated on your order as it may not be possible to change after you have received an order acknowledgment.
DEPOSITS. Non account customers may be asked for either a 50% deposit, or full payment with order. Your order will not be processed until this is received. If, for any reason whatsoever, your order is cancelled; this payment is strictly non returnable.
