HOW DO I PAY, HOW SOON DO I GET IT, WHAT IF I WANT TO SEND IT BACK?

Payment, Delivery & Returns

I can't use/find the ClearPay option

The ClearPay option is at the bottom of the payment options when you go to checkout.

Typicall the order is cards, paypal and then Clearpay.

The ClearPay option is only available for orders over £45

My discount code isn't working!

There may be a couple of reasons that your discount code is not working.

Expired Code

It may be that the code has run out. They normally last for a short period and run out at midnight, or there are a limited number of codes and they've already been used by others.

Multiple Discounts

Only one discount code can be used per order. This applies to discounts that are automatically applied at checkout.

System Glitch

Sometimes the gremlins like to have a play! If none of the above apply contact us and we'll send you another code.

How long until my order arrives?

That depends and if you order more than one type of product, they may come separately and on different days.

Our Product Estimated Delivery Times page has lots of great information and there should also be an estimated delivery window on the product page.

If your order is urgent, contact us before placing your order as we are able to offer ezpedited delivery for some items for an additional fee.

Can I track my order?

The majority of our orders are now sent out tracked, your delivery confirmation email will contain tracking details.

My order hasn't arrived, despite getting a confirmation

While the majority - 99% of our orders are delivered without issue occasionally orders can go missing in transit.

If your order hasn't arrived 4 days after your delivery notice then contact us so we can investigate and get a replacement out if required.

What happens when orders are damaged?

While our delivery partners are chosen for their level of care and high standards, occasionally items can be damaged in transit.

Damaged items will be replaced or refunded as desired. In order for us to recoup our costs we ask that damages are notified to us within 24 hours of reciept.

What happens if I just change my mind?

Contact us as soon as you know you want to cancel your order. I ff your order has not been processed a full refund will be issued immediately

WHAT'S IT MADE OF, HOW DO I USE IT, WILL IT FIT

Product Features

How do I know if it will fit in my space?

All our product pages should have the dimensions of the product.

If you've found a page with missing information, we'd appreciate if you'd let us know. (We'll give you 10% of your order if you go ahead and place it!)

I'm a size 14/16 what size hoodie/tee should I order.

All our adult clothing product pages should indicate the fit of the item as well as the link to our adult clothing size guide.

We have several styles of T Shirts and Hoodies, each with a different fit.

Slim

Regular

Retall

Fitted

Girlie

Oversized.

On our standard hoodies and tees I would personally recommend a large or XL, but I like my stuff baggy.

If in doubt contact us directly, particularly if ordering personalised clothing which is non refundable.

My 10 year old is tall for their age? Should I get 10/12

To be on the safe side we'd recommend getting a Small in the adult's rather than the largest in the kids.

If you need a kids design on an adult size contact us and we can arrange it.

The design I love is not in the hoodie/tee/colour/size I want!

Don't worry, contact us, if it's already on a notebook, cup, t shirt, hoodie, phone case, towel or blanket, the likelihood is that we can get you the design you want on the item you want..
