Brexit / VAT Changes UK > EU from 1st July 2021
There are new VAT rules for items shipped from the UK to the EU from 1st July.
Our website automatically removes UK VAT from orders with a delivery address outside the UK and the receiver will be responsible to pay for any VAT / duties before your order can be delivered by our courier. There are new VAT requirements for UK to EU orders, which we need to make you aware of. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they will be. You can contact your local customs office for more information or you may find the information you need from this Taxation & Customs Factsheet, and the Taxation & Customs Union website.
We are working hard to find an easier solution to this, and hopefully we can make this process quicker in the future.

When you place an order for large orders, (E.g. napkins) we require a design fee, from £35 depending on size / complexity of your design. We will then create your proofs for approval. Once they have been approved, we need 50% of the total amount to reserve your order in our workroom diary.
The balance of the payment is required before the shipment of your order. Delay in payment at any stage will result in a delay of your order.

When ordering large quantities of place setting napkins, when your order is confirmed we will advise you of a production date for each part of your order advising you when we need the additional information (guest names).

If work has commenced, then we have the right to collect the final payment to cover the costs already incurred.
If the customer requires amendments after confirming that the proof is correct and making of personalised items has already started, then this will incur a charge to incorporate materials and labour invested.
