Any envelopes returned to us must be in their original amounts and their original box and packaging to avoid further damage, where possible.
Due to the way envelopes are manufactured and counted, boxed quantities and weights can on occasion be up to 10% under or over the amount stated on the box/individual envelope. If you find your envelope stock is short, please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we will replace the missing stock. All of our envelopes have a 10% tolerance in size (in most cases only by 1-2mm) due to the nature of the material and manufacturing process. We cannot guarantee exact envelope measurements or weights.
Coloured envelopes by their nature have a tendency to fade, some colours more than others. It is important when storing or displaying the envelopes to avoid direct exposure to sunshine or bright lighting systems. If you are unsure about how you should store the envelopes, one of our staff will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Please contact our customer services department on 01273 486026 or email us at email@example.com.

6.1 Artwork requirements
We require you, the customer to provide artwork for any printing in line with our Artwork Guidelines. The full details of our Artwork Guidelines can be found on our website here: https://www.allcolourenvelopes.co.uk/pages/printartwork-guidelines
Your attention is also drawn to our print notice** included with all print quotes as failure to adhere to this may affect costs and lead times. Failure to follow these guidelines may result in poor quality print reproduction and we accept no responsibility for poor quality products in those circumstances. On receipt of artwork we reserve the right to decline any print job that in our opinion breaches copyright laws or contains information or images that we consider to be deemed offensive.
You must retain copies of all artwork you provide to us.
You must not provide any artwork that will breach any third party rights to such material unless you have their express consent. We have the right to disclose your identity to any third party claiming that any material you provide to us constitutes a violation of their rights.
To the extent that we are permitted to do so by law, we may delete your material stored by us at any time.
** PRINT NOTICE
Strictly subject to sight of artwork – no large solids or bleeds. Lead time on printed stock is approximately 8-9 working days from receipt of payment, artwork approval and stock availability. If not advised at estimating stage excessive ink coverage, bleeds, large foiling areas and special coloured foils may affect the quoted price. When foiling onto String & Washer envelopes the print area must not encroach onto the mechanism on the reverse. All artwork needs to be supplied as a high res PDF. When producing artwork it is best to avoid envelope seams as this may cause “seam impressions” on the printed image. Please note that printing CMYK or Pantone colours onto coloured envelopes will affect the colour reproduction
Prior to production, we will provide you with electronic proof of your artwork/order for approval. You are responsible for approving these proofs and written confirmation must be received by us before we can progress print jobs. You accept that once you have given approval the products cannot be changed nor cancelled. We shall have no liability to you or any third parties for any errors in the proof subsequently discovered by you. Your statutory rights are not affected by these terms and conditions.
6.3 Lead times
Lead times provided will apply from the point of artwork approval AND payment receipt for the order (not from the point of enquiry). Lead times are expected but not guaranteed and are subject to stock availability.
On the rare occasion of delay to your order we will keep you updated with such changes and we will complete the work as soon as we reasonably can, offering alternatives and any solutions possible to prevent or speed up the delay.
Once we have started production we are unable to cancel or refund orders due to change of lead time and we accept no responsibility for any deadlines missed due to such delays.
All reasonable endeavours will be made to deliver the correct quantity of envelopes ordered by you; however a 5% variation in respect of quantities is inherent within the printing industry. All overages may be kept by you at no additional cost.
We shall try to meet your colour requirements where files are submitted in accordance with our guidelines in respect of the products. You accept that variations in colours are inherent within the printing process for files submitted in other formats. When printing on envelopes, colour variation may occur depending on the envelope stock, style and printing process used. You also understand and accept that computer hardware set ups are such that we cannot guarantee that the printed colours will match those displayed on your computer screen during the ordering process. We recommend you provide us with CMYK/Pantone references for colours where possible.
Print of any nature has a tendency to fade over time. We recommend storing your goods in dry conditions, away from direct sunlight. If you would like more advice and information regarding the shelf life of the particular product you are ordering, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
6.6 Damaged or faulty goods
In the unlikely event some, or all, of the envelopes are damaged when they are delivered to you, or you believe that a product is defective, you should notify us within 3 working days of the delivery date on 01273 486026 or by e-mail on email@example.com. This in no way means we accept liability for any damaged or defective good whether plain or printed.
We will ask for photographic evidence and may also ask you to return the goods to us for our examination. If we agree that the goods are defective and that we are at fault, we will reprint/reproduce free of charge.
6.7 Cancellations and returns
Printed and customised envelopes are strictly non-refundable.
6.8 Our use of your goods
We may produce additional samples of your goods, at our own cost, for the purposes of quality control and to provide as samples to potential future customers who wish to see the quality of our work. We may also on occasion photograph such samples for use on our website, marketing material and social media. If you do not wish for us to use your goods in such a way please advise when ordering or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We provide samples free of charge so you are able to check you are completely happy with your choice of envelope before purchasing. Samples can be ordered through the website or by emailing email@example.com

7.1 Envelopes & cuttings
You will usually be sent whole samples of each envelope. Should you order multiple colours of the exact same envelope we may, on occasion, opt to send 1 full envelope, with cuttings of the other colours requested.
7.2 Delivery fee and reimbursement
While the envelope samples themselves are free, we ask for a delivery fee of £2.50 + VAT (£3.00) through our website to help recover some of the postage costs. After ordering your samples you will receive an email with a voucher for £2.50 + VAT (£3.00) which you can use against a purchase of envelopes on our website, thus reimbursing you for this delivery fee. Please note this voucher is valid for 28 days.
7.3 Dispatch and delivery
We aim to dispatch samples ordered before 1.30pm on any working day the same day. Samples ordered after 1.30pm will be dispatched the next working day.
All samples are sent via Royal Mail 1st Class service. If you do not receive your samples within 7 working days of ordering please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send a replacement sample pack to you.
7.4 Plain cover
As standard, our samples packs will be sent with our All Colour Envelopes branding on the outer package and our branded stickers on your envelope samples. Should you wish your samples to be sent under plain cover, please advise when ordering and we will arrange this for you.
