All our products are ‘bespoke goods’ produced personally & solely for you & as such are subject to the strict guidelines as set out in the Consumer Rights Act 2015. ‘Bespoke Goods’ states that ‘bespoke’ items are non-returnable and non-refundable. Due to the timescale involved in producing ‘bespoke’ items, GIG.INK will provide a 24-hour cooling off period from the time that your order is placed, but after this time has elapsed production will begin and the right to cancel will be removed. This will not affect your statutory rights with regards to damaged or faulty goods.
