Bespoke Terms & Conditions

Thank you for choosing independent designer-makers practising traditional skills. Please take a moment to read through this ‘small print’ for your bespoke, made-to-order book. If you have any queries please get in touch before making payment.

Enquiries

You can view your bespoke options here. Please email me with your selections or do email / call if you'd like some help with your selection. Please let me know your deadline and the country to which you need the book delivered as early in the process as possible. 

Leather

Leathers are a natural product and will show slight natural markings on both the inside and outside. This is a normal feature of natural grain leather and is far preferable to using grain-corrected (machine-embossed) leathers. Raw edges if chosen, will likely show clip marks, discoloured areas or colourless areas; these are a normal result of the tanning process. The quality, beauty and functionality of your book remain first class. Rest assured I always use leather from a British tannery with an excellent reputation.

Colours

Colours may vary slightly from the colour shown on your computer or mobile device due to monitor variations. Colours may vary slightly between dye lots so two books in the same colour may differ slightly. This is a normal aspect of using natural products. If colour matching is crucial to you, please get in touch.

Purchasing

Purchasing can be done by BACs or cheque from a purchase order, or online from a product listing using BACs, credit / debit card or Paypal. Purchasing finalises your order and no further changes can be made to your bespoke book.

Delivery

I will be able to estimate a delivery date nearer your deadline. All orders are sent using Royal Mail Special Delivery (UK), Royal Mail International Tracked & Signed (International) or Parcelforce (International Express). These are tracked and insured services which require a signature on delivery; please bear this in mind when specifying your delivery address.

Returns & Refunds

I regret that bespoke, made to order books cannot be returned unless in the unlikely event that they arrive damaged or not made to the specifications in your invoice or product listing.

Queries

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
