Images

Many of our product images displayed on Our Site and in advertisements and catalogues have been created by our own professional team, using imagery or garments provided by the item’s manufacturer to ensure all images are a real representation of the final product.

Purchasing Goods

All orders placed on Our Site do not constitute a contract. All orders are subject to these Terms and Conditions and are subject to acceptance by Direct Print. When orders are placed on Our Site we will send an order confirmation that the order request has been acknowledged, this email does not constitute acceptance of the order. Our acceptance is confirmed when the delivery of the order is made to you.

As part of the order confirmation process, we will request payment from your card issuer. This still does not constitute acceptance of the order.
If you are purchasing a personalised items, the payment is taken before the item is sent and we’re unable to refund once the item is personalised.

By submitting your payment details to Direct Print, you accept that we will capture funds once the order is placed. Direct Print will not accept liability for any charges applied by your card provider relating to the transaction.

Product Orders

All orders placed through Our Site are subject to Direct Print acceptance. This means that Direct Print may refuse to accept or may cancel any order, whether the order has been confirmed, for any or no reason, and without liability to you or anyone else. If your credit card has already been charged for an order that is later cancelled, Direct Print will issue you with a refund.

Availability

Direct Print will endeavour to display availability as accurately as possible. If we are unable to supply the goods requested, we will aim to assist you in finding a suitable alternative which you are happy with, however, a difference may be required to be paid. If you do not wish for an alternative product, we will cancel the order and any pending transaction promptly, please be aware that funds may take several days to reallocate in your account. Some items have very limited availability, very occasionally we may need to limit the amount supplied per customer to try to ensure that as many customers as possible can gain access to them.

In accordance with the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, you have 14 consecutive days from the day you receive your parcel to cancel your contract with us. Should you wish to do this we require written notification via email or post. You may do this either before you receive , or it can be placed within the parcel upon its return. If goods have been dispatched, you will be expected to cover the cost of return or pay for the cost of retrieval if the courier hasn’t yet been delivered.
Any non-personalised cancelled items must be returned to us in resalable condition, unused and complete with original packaging. When returning, please protect product packaging by using additional outer packaging to return.
We regret that we are unable to cancel orders for personalised or decorated items if the personalisation process has begun.

Personalised/Decoration Items, User Uploaded Content and Customisation Requests

Generally: If you are purchasing a personalised/Decoration item, we will process a pre-authorisation and collect payment when the order is first placed. The payment will be taken before the item is sent for personalisation not immediately before dispatch.

Once an order containing personalisation/decoration items has begun the personalisation process it cannot be changed or cancelled. All personalised/decorated items cannot be returned unless an item has genuine manufacturer’s fault.

Direct Print reserves the right to utilise our knowledge and expertise in positioning, sizing and the method of personalisation and customisation. Any images shown on Our Site indicate only a rough guide as to how the finished item will appear. By placing your order for personalised or customised items you agree that Direct Print will use the guidelines provided by you during the order placing process to determine an appropriate and suitable way to personalise or customise your order and you agree to accept the decisions made Direct Print make when using the guidelines provided by you.

Teamwear and Garment Personalisation:
Crest and Sponsor logos will always be produced to industry standard size and placed in the most suitable place in the garment in the area you have suggested. We cannot cover manufacturer logos. If you have elected to add customisation to an area already populated by a manufacturer or brand logo your customisation will be placed in the area you have indicated as appropriate to also ensure that the manufacturer or brand logos is also still visible.
In most cases Direct Print may choose to send a sample for you to sign off before personalising or customising your order. This will not happen on all orders, especially repeat orders, as our experts are usually certain of the best placement and method to use and will always follow industry standards where possible. If a sample is sent to you the processing times and expected fulfilment times will be impacted while your confirmation is awaited. Once a sample has been approved by you it cannot be amended further as production will commence upon receipt of your approval.

User Uploaded Content:
If you upload an image to Our Site or email us an image to us to be used when personalising or customising a teamwear order you must provide the highest resolution file that you are able to supply. If the image is not of sufficient quality, we may not be able to accept your order and will contact you to obtain a better quality image or alternatively offer a ‘re-drawing’ service for a fee of £14.99 + VAT to make your image usable.

You must have the right to use any images that you upload or email in the way that you intend for them to be used. You must also have the right for us to use the images in the way that you request for us to use them. By uploading images to Our Site or emailing images to us, you are informing us that you have the right for the images to be used by you and by us. You must not upload or email any images where you do not have the right to do so and you will be liable for the consequences of any copyright infringement. By uploading images to Our Site or emailing images to us, you agree that you have ensured that your intended use of that image does not:
● Infringe anyone’s copyright - you are either the copyright owner or the copyright owner has granted you permission to use the image on your item.
● Infringe upon anyone’s privacy or data protection rights - any people used in images or whose data is used in any part of your customised kit should be fully consented for this to take place and you should obtain written approval that such consent has been provided. Direct Print will not be held liable if you have failed to do so.

Claims for Non Arrival of Order/Return

Orders will be dispatched within 14 working days. Please note that this timescale is only an estimate and does not constitute a guarantee. You may need to allow extra time for your order to arrive if it has not arrived before the estimated delivery date. Direct Print uses reputable couriers who will allow you to track your order so you will be able to follow its progress and see when delivery is likely to take place and couriers may deliver to a safe place. To keep an eye on your order, once this has been dispatched you will be sent an email of the tracking information. Please note that if you select a ‘Standard’ delivery service your parcel will be sent through the postal network and in the UK claims for non-arrival of orders will not be investigated until 25 days have elapsed since the parcel was dispatched.

Valid claims of non-receipt are extremely rare and we will always make sure that we do the right thing to minimise any inconvenience caused by delays in transit. You should contact our customer service team as early as possible if you have any concerns about your delivery. If our carrier has scanned your parcel as delivered to you but you have not received it, or if your return is showing as scanned delivered to us but we have not yet processed it, please contact our customer service team. You will be required to allow us 10 business days from our acknowledgement of your claim to investigate all such claims. You will also need to fully cooperate in the investigation and provide us with all documentation that we request during the process. Failure to do so will result in a failed claim.

Regrettably online retailers are often targeted by criminals engaging in fraudulent activities and theft which focus on bogus claims of non-receipt of delivery or return (eg. theft made through so called “SE” or “Social Engineering” techniques, DNA/LIT/MI scams, fraudulent EB/PEB claims, FTID returns and digitally altered POPs). Crimes of this nature are very damaging to retailers and genuine consumers alike.

Direct Print is acutely aware of the techniques employed by these criminals and as a result our investigation process is very thorough. As part of the process you may be required to provide some or all of the following:
● A signed and witnessed declaration indicating that you have not received your items in spite of the couriers indication that they have safely delivered it
● Proof of address
● A police report detailing the fact that your order was stolen from your property
● A face to face meeting with the couriers who delivered your parcel
● In the case of a return - proof of postage that will be passed to the couriers for verification that it has not been altered
● In the case of a return - an affidavit indicating that the items being claimed as returned were legitimately returned by you and that evidence supplied by you has been fabricated or digitally altered (if you are in the UK and retail value of your return is over £”50 or you are not in the UK, you will be required to range your own courier and will be liable for ensuring that it has the relevant tracking/insurance in the event that we do not successfully receive your returned items so your claim would be with your courier of choice and not Direct Print so you will need to satisfy their requirements for investigation of your claim)

No claims of “non-delivery” or returns claims will be exempt from investigation. Investigations will be executed as swiftly as possible; however, 10 working days is required to allow the retrieval/review of CCTV footage (from our own warehouse, local Post Offices, Couriers depots and Delivery driver dash cams/PDAs etc) and the completion/review of all relevant documentation.
Where the investigation concludes that an attempt to defraud the company has taken place, it is Direct Print’s policy to refer such cases for prosecution and all evidence collected will then be passed to the relevant authorities. We operate a zero tolerance to such criminal activity and are committed to protecting ourselves, our fellow online retailers and our customers from the increased costs that are associated with becoming a victim of these crimes.

Returns Policy

All goods supplied by Direct Print are from official sources and covered by the normal retailers warranty. You can return any item with 28 days of receipt for a refund or to exchange the same item for an alternative size, but the items returned must be their original condition, which includes any packaging. For example, shoes are to be returned along with the original shoe box, any tags attached and in new condition, (not used outside or on abrasive surface).

Please note that if your order is worth over £250.00 then we recommend that you return your item via recorded/tracked delivery (using your national courier service is the most cost effective) as you are liable for the item until it is received by us and signed for. Please ensure that the item is adequately packaged, complete the returns form on the dispatch note and if required, include a brief note in the parcel to explain why the item is being returned.

If you wish to return goods, please ensure that the item is adequately packaged, complete the returns form on the dispatch note and if required, include a brief note in the parcel to explain why the item is being returned.

Faulty Products - If you are not able to find a carrier please send us some pictures of the damage to info@directprintwales.co.uk and we will see if we can process your claim without receiving the item back. Please note that we are not always able to process claims of faulty goods using images alone. All goods will be inspected on return. We reserve the right to refuse a refund or exchange if the goods returned are deemed to be damaged or tampered with not in accordance with normal use. This does not affect your statutory rights.
Personalised/Decorated Items - Regrettably, we cannot accept a returned item that has been personalised/decorated unless it is a fault of the manufacturer.
Direct Print products are from official sources and covered by the normal manufacturer warranty. Whether you are in the UK or outside of the UK, if you believe you have received a faulty product, please contact our customer service team by email info@directprintwales.co.uk with an image of your item and explanation of the fault so they can advise you on the best outcome of the situation.
