Paper
Colours vary from computer monitor to computer monitor. As such, the colour on your screen is only an indication of the actual stock colour, not an exact match. If you are in any doubt about the colour of the stock, you should purchase sample sheets first.

Printer compatibility is not a guarantee. As there are many different printers in the market, it is impossible to guarantee that the paper you order will be 100% compatible with your specific printer.

Similarly, if a paper or card is laser compatible, that does not guarantee your laser can print on it. For example, some lasers cannot accept Card Stock.

Stock Availability, Material, Colours and Size

All orders are subject to availability. Unfortunately, products may be occasionally, temporarily or even permanently unavailable. We will not be held liable for any damages, in any form, as a result of failure to supply any goods or services, regardless of the reason. Once an order has been placed online, we will process and pack your order before any payment is taken. All items in-stock will be dispatched. In the event we cannot supply a certain item, you will be advised via email or phone call of an estimated item it will be available. We currently DO NOT backorder. Out of stock items can take up to 12 weeks. So if an item is required urgently, please contact our office to confirm stock levels BEFORE placing your order.

Onscreen colours may appear slightly different, depending on your computer monitor screen. Due to large volume manufacturing, colours and sizes (in particular lace and flowers), may vary from batch to batch.

For all products listed on this website sizes are for reference only. Please refer to the actual products for exact sizing or contact us for further information
