Lead Times

To enable us to create products with so many personalised aspects, each of our made to order products have a lead time.

A lead time is the amount of time customers should allow for us to make their order before the item will be ready to be dispatched. 

Our lead times are always stated within the product description under the 'lead times' heading. These times will vary between products so please ensure you read these. If you order contains an item with a 1-2 day lead time, alongside a piece with a 3 week time we will always default to the longest lead time due to all items being dispatched together. For this scenario, it means all items in your order would fall under the 3 week lead time.

To work out your estimated dispatch time for your order, please begin counting from the next working day after your order was placed (weekend order lead times will commence on the Monday.) The date you come to, will be the date we aim to dispatch your order by. If for any reason there is a delay and we may not be able to dispatch by this time, we will contact you directly.
