How do I order?
- Go to the Product page of your choice.
- Make sure to read through the page as we always include useful information in them
- Click on the "Start design" green button
- Select options if any under the "Product Options" tab
- Click on the "Images and Text Tools" tab to then upload pictures and/or add text
Good to know:
The online interface allows you to preview your product. What you create is what we print. We do not modify your order. In some cases, our automated system can show you orange (low quality), blue (aspect ratio), green (image too small) warning signs on the design interface and if you still proceed without editing, we can check to check if we can actually print your design as it is.
This is to ensure the best possible print, however please be aware that these warnings are automated algorythms and cannot pick up every possible issue a design might have. As an example if an image with a 72dpi resolution has been artifically altered and its resolution increased to 300dpi, our tools cannot pick this up and the resolution of the picture will stay just as bad which is why you need to make sure the images you upload are of great (or good enough) quaity.
Please make sure you are happy with your design. You can also contact us by Chat when we are online. We are definitely happy to help if you provide us with the pre-order number you will receive after saving your creation with the "Save Design" button on the design interface.
Once you have placed your order, there is a window of a few minutes for you to change your order (order in the "Waiting List" or in "New Order"), after which your order will be printed and cannot be stopped.
Check Order Status
We do advise to register an account with us ("Sign In" button on the top of our website, and then "Register") to have access to your order history and easily check your order status.
Here are the Order Status you may encounter:
- New Order:
- Your order has just been made and our system is processing it. Your can still make changes to your order by moving your order to the waiting list on your order summary.
- Waiting List:
- Your order is in a review status with our customer services and may require action by you.
Production cannot be started when an order is in this status. It may be due to an image being low quality, or white space was left between images or text too close to the edge, etc.
- If we believe your order to be OK we will fix and continue, if in doubt, or further action is required, we will contact you.
- If you have been asked to edit or review your design, please press the ‘Edit or View Design’ button on your order summary. Once you have made your changes press the ‘Submit Changes’ button. Please be aware that we require your action – until then it will remain on Waiting list!
- In Progress:
- Printing and production has started.
- It is unfortunately too late to make changes at this stage as we start production swiftly to honour our turnaround times to the best we can. If you have an urgent query, please Chat to us or call us and we will see what we can do to help. Please note that if the progress of your order is too advanced, we might not be able to make any changes, and if these changes are absolutely required, additional fees might apply.
Tips:Once you have placed your order, you can still change or cancel your order for a few minutes before the order moves into progress. Afterwards, if you wish to cancel and after checking the order status (production status, printing already started (we print at night as well) or time already spent by our customer service staff), we may apply a chargeback fee at our discretion.
Cancel my order
Once you have placed your order, you can still change or cancel your order free of charge as long as your order is in the waiting list or in new order status. We usually print within a few minutes of the order being placed to ship asap.
Please contact us immediately via Chat or the Online Form and provide your order number.
After this time, the order is in progress at which point, if you wish to cancel, and after checking the order status (production status or time already spent by our customer service staff, transfer paper or fabrics used), we may apply a chargeback fee at our discretion.
- Within 30 minutes: we wait 30 minutes after you place your order before we start making it. Within these 30 minutes, you are welcome to contact us if you wish to edit or if you change your mind. If you have any questions about your order or have any doubts about your design get in touch with our friendly customer service team (via our web chat or online form) who will be more than happy to help and can offer a full refund.
- After 30 minutes: we handmake every product and personalise it to order, so as soon as we start production of your bespoke items, we have already invested into the ink, transfer paper, materials and the workforce time specifically for your order. This means that if you wish to cancel after 30 minutes of placing the order, a mandatory 20% charge will incur.
