6. Availability and delivery
6.1 Delivery of goods will be within the stated shipping option wherever possible. For economy shipping this time is 3-5 days. For 24-48 hour delivery this is an aim to hit 24-48 hours by the courier and this is not a guarantee. This is also weekdays only and not weekend days. This delivery is subject to stock and related issues as well other factors outside our control. The time for delivery shall therefore not be of the essence.
6.2 Delivery will be made to the address specified in your order and cannot be changed once despatched.
6.3 Orders placed before the specified cut off time will be processed the same day and will be delivered in accordance with your delivery request wherever possible and providing further security checks are not required and all the Products are available.
6.4 If an order is sent and you are not present to receive it as per the couriers terms then we will not attempt to ship again until you have paid for further shipping.
6.5 Provided we kept our end of the agreement by getting the parcel to the courier in good time we cannot be held accountable for them not getting the parcel to you on time. This is totally out of our hands once the parcel is with the courier.
6.6 If you miss the delivery on any day and do not rearrange delivery as per the couriers instruction via posted ticket then you will only be refunded the price of your products and not the shipping charge should the parcel be returned to us. You have the option to pay for shipping again or we can process a refund on items only.
6.7 All film rolls will be made in continuous rolls where this is possible. In some instances this may not be possible due to low stock where more than one small roll must be used to make up the order total. We are under no obligation to provide a continuous roll where we are not able. It is the customers responsibility to inform us if a continuous roll is essential and we will then be able to advise whether this is possible given current stock conditions.
6.8 Aerosol delivery will be made by any 24-48 hour carrier that is available within the customer price paid for shipping which means that 24 hour shipping on these items will not always be possible and the service will fall back to 48 hour.

8.4 Our site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our despatch procedures so that, where a Product’s correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when despatching the Product to you. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
8.5 We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you an Order Completed email, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
