Party Banners prides itself on customer service and to help our customers have an excellent buying experience our terms and conditions are laid out in an easy to read format. Please read these carefully as they explain what you can do to give your product the wow factor and avoid any disappointment on delivery.
Due to the personalised nature of the products we sell, we cannot accept returns on items unless there is a printing fault or the item has been damaged in transit. We cannot accept cancellations of an order once the order has been processed and is in the queue awaiting printing. This is because many orders are grouped together and we cannot disrupt this process. If you have made an order and notice a mistake on your design, please telephone us immediately. If the order has not yet been printed we will attempt to make the changes for you. Non faulty returns of items such as banner stands and other hardware will be accepted but will incur a 20% restocking charge. In addition the customer will be responsible for the return carriage charge.
We will accept the cancellation of your order prior to it being queued for printing. All refunds will incur a £2.50 charge to cover the administration costs levied by our card payment processing company.
Unless you have stated otherwise, this service requires you to check your emails and sign off a proof before you order is printed and dispatched. It is also a good idea to check your junk email folder as emails can end up here in error.
Customers requesting a refund ‘who have not followed our guidelines’ will be liable for a £5.00 design fee. This fee covers us for the time and effort that we invest into a customer’s specific design brief. Detailed information regarding this service can be found here.
In the unlikely event there is a problem with your order please contact us immediately. You can telephone on our main office number 01489 574 408 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We cannot accept claims if we have not had the opportunity to re-print your order and expedite a delivery.
It is your responsibility to ensure that the design you are ordering is correct. We cannot accept any claim for customer’s spelling or design mistakes. We DO NOT spell check orders as a matter of course. We cannot accept claims if you are unhappy with the printed result of images or files supplied to us by you. There are guidelines about using your own images in the help menu on the design page. If you are unsure whether your image will produce a good printed result, please contact us and we can advise you on this.
Digital devices including your computer monitor and digital camera use red, green and blue (RGB) colour space to display colour. Our printers use cyan, magenta, yellow and black (CMYK) inks which produce a different range of colours. In order to print RGB files on our printers we must first convert them into CMYK colour space. Certain, bright and vibrant RGB colours cannot be achieved with most CMYK inks. When creating or selecting files for printing we advise you to use CMYK colour mode files. We convert your RGB files and designs to CMYK before printing. This includes all templates found on our website and all designs created on our online design tool. We cannot be held responsible for any colour differences that occur during this process.
When creating a design on our website or otherwise please avoid using dark colours (e.g dark blue) upon a dark background (e.g Black). This may appear legible on your computer screen but will not appear so when printed. If we spot this happening on your design, we may opt to change the colours to resolve this. Please let us know if you DO NOT wish us to make any changes of this kind.
If you require further guidance on any of the topics covered in this section then please don’t hesitate to contact us.
All of our products are produced to a very high standard but it is very important to purchase the correct product for your needs. We cannot be held responsible for damage to banners that have been placed outside in windy conditions. If the banner needs to withstand windy conditions, please ensure that you order a mesh banner which is designed for this purpose. Please be aware that all finished print sizes are approximate. We endeavour to produce a final print which is within a 2cm tolerance of your selected print size.
