Ordering from us

You are deemed to place an order with us by ordering via our online checkout process.

Our acceptance of an order takes place when we despatch the order. When we despatch the order the purchase contract will be made even if your payment has been processed immediately, unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled your order.

We may refuse to accept an order:

Please note that all orders are hand painted using the notes you give us. We try our very best to adhere to all your requests but they are not always possible. When selecting 3D materials they may differ from the colour you have chosen but we will keep the colour theme of the bag to that specific colour for you. Bows & materials may differ throughout the year depending on suppliers.

Delivery

We will deliver the Products ordered by you to the address which you provide 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.

The majority of our products are despatched on a 1st Class Royal Mail 'Signed for' service. If you have not received your items after 15 working days from the date of dispatch, you must check with your local sorting office even if you have not received notification from your postman that they are holding items for you. At that point we will be able to check the location of your parcel via the tracking number provided by Royal Mail at the time of posting. Please note that signed for parcels are not fully trackable. The information given is very basic but we can see if they have tried to deliver or if somebody has signed for your parcel. Depending on the outcome we may offer a free replacement or a complete refund. Tracking information is not sent to customers. This is kept internally for insurance purposes.

Large items such as suitcases will be sent using Hermes which is a 3-5 working day service. Items that do not arrive in this timescale can be tracked. Items sent using Hermes are able to be tracked but this information is kept internally for insurance purposes.

We do accept international orders. For more Information Please email customizeddesigns@hotmail.co.uk and we will be happy to assist you futher.

Dispatch times are product dependant, Painted items - upto 28 working days from the date the payment is received, Printed items - 3 calender weeks days from the date the payment is received. Our normal working hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 5.30pm. We only dispatch orders during these times. Actual timescales may differ due to events and conditions outside the control of Customized By Laura.

Whilst we make every effort to deliver goods as quickly as possible, we cannot guarantee delivery on a specific date.

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 28 days of the date on which you ordered them, we shall have no liability to you unless you notify us by email at Customizeddesigns@hotmail.co.uk of the problem within 28 days of the date on which you ordered the Products.

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 request customer wait up to 15 working days from the date of despatch before replacing an undelivered item. Once again this is because we do not provide the delivery service therefore the responsibility of the order transfers to the courier or supply partner transporting your item.
