Delivery & Returns

Please find below answers to common questions regarding delivery and returns.

General Delivery Information

Once you have placed your order, please allow 3-5 working days for this to be processed. Our aim is to get the items processed within this time frame, however, factors such as stock availability and as we embroider and print most garments in house, there may be times it can take slightly longer than anticipated.

Should this extend past 7 days, we will call or email you to work on a solution that works for you so that you receive your order as soon as possible.

Once the order has been shipped or is ready for collection, you will be notified and provided with a tracking number where applicable.

 

Click and Collect

This is a free service we offer and currently allow collection from three locations which are:

  • Walthamstow- Our main site located in Walthamstow Business Centre (E17 4SX)
  • Hartley, Kent- Located at Hartley DIY store (DA3 8DS)
  • Dunmow- Collection from Dunmow St Marys Primary school (only for parents of this school) or collection arranged through us for parents of Takeley or Helena Romanes schools)

Once you have received an email with details for collection, you will have 14 days to collect, before receiving a further reminder. Should the date exceed one month, your order will be placed back into stock, and a store credit of the order amount will be added to your account to be used online.

During the summer period, we are happy to extend this, however we must be notified in advance.

 

Delivery

We offer standard delivery via Royal Mail and all orders are shipped with the time frame of 3-5 working days, although most orders will reach customers within 2-3 working days.

Please allow up to 7 days for delivery, and if there has been no attempted delivery, or no update for the tracking, let us know and we will contact Royal Mail

The cost for this is £4.95.
