Placing an order with The Little Embroidery Studio:
You are deemed to place an order with us by ordering via our online checkout process. We will acknowledge your order by email, detailing the products you have ordered.
Our acceptance of an order takes place when we despatch the order to the customer.

We may refuse to accept an order:
(a) Where goods are not available
(b) Where we cannot obtain authorisation for your payment
(c) If there has been a pricing or product description error
(d) If you do not meet any eligibility criteria set out in our terms and conditions

DISCOUNT CODES AND PROMOTIONS
Discount codes must be applied when you reach the checkout.
Codes can only be applied to full price items and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers, unless stated otherwise.
Discounts do not apply to shipping costs, unless stated otherwise.
Always check the end date for discount codes, as they will not be valid after this time.
Discounts cannot be exchanged for cash and are non transferable.
The Little Embroidery Studio reserves the right (i) cancel discount codes at any time; (ii) refuse to allow any individual to participate in offers; and (iii) amend these terms and conditions.
We will deliver the Products ordered by you, to the address which you provide for delivery when you place your order. If any of the details you have given us in your delivery address are incorrect, we are not liable for any items which have not been received. If you require us to send out your item to a different address after it has been returned then there may be a charge for posting it out again.
You may specify a delivery address which is different from your billing address - for example, if you would like us to deliver your order directly to the recipient.
We do deliver outside of Europe. If you are outside the EU, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for a shipping quotation. International orders may be subject to import duties and taxes which are levied when the delivery reaches the specified destination. You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please note that we have no control over these charges and cannot predict their amount. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.
All orders are shipped via courier, or Royal Mail signed for service with a tracking facility. A signature will be required upon delivery. We aim to deliver all mainland UK standard orders within 5-7 working days. However, during busy periods we cannot guarantee standard delivery orders to arrive within the 5-7 working days. If you require your order by a certain date, please contact us before placing your order to arrange a nominated delivery day and we will do our very best to accommodate you.
We make every effort to deliver goods on the day we specify, however we cannot guarantee delivery on that day or accept liability for deliveries made outside this timescale.
Some postal addresses in Northern Ireland, some offshore islands and some remote areas of Great Britain may not be covered by our normal delivery services and so we may have to contact you to advise you of extra postal charges.
If you do not receive products ordered by you within 7 days of the date on which you ordered them, we shall have no liability to you unless you notify us by email at email@example.com of the problem within 10 days of the date on which you placed your order.
The majority of our products are dispatched by Courier or Royal Mail signed for delivery service. If you have not received your items, please check with your local sorting office even if you have not received notification from your postman that they are holding items for you.
In the event that we reproduce an item for you and subsequently the original is returned as undelivered by Royal Mail, we reserve the right to charge an administrative fee up to 100% of the sales price of the reproduced product.
We reserve the right to wait up to 10 working days from the date of despatch before replacing an undelivered item.
CANCELLING YOUR ORDER
For most items you have the legal right to cancel your order within seven working days of receiving the goods. However, this does not apply to items which we have made, personalised or customised specifically for you. It does not apply to any goods which have been opened.
Order cancellations must be made in writing within seven 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone (07495 013230) 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.
In order to provide an efficient and speedy service, some products are immediately sent for production. Please check your order and our confirmation of your order very carefully since we cannot refund products which have been spelled incorrectly.
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 contact us either via email (email@example.com) or telephone (07945 013230). If it is a fault is ours, you can return the goods to us within 14 days of receipt. We will issue a full refund or exchange as soon as possible after you cancel your order.
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,and is recorded, since 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 we have made an error, or because it is defective, we will happily refund the full value of the item and your costs in returning it to us.
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 simply changed your mind.
We regret that postage and packing costs for unwanted items cannot be refunded. Even if you have qualified for free delivery when placing your order.
We will do our very best to ensure that returns and exchanges are dealt with efficiently and promptly.
If a discount was applied to your original order, the amount refunded will be adjusted to allow for the revised order value and appropriate discount level.
This returns policy does not affect your statutory rights.
