Thank you for visiting the GIG.INK, SCRATCH-IT! & SPEAK-IT! websites & below I’ve set out my Terms & Conditions, which form a contract between you (The Buyer) & me (The Seller). This contract shall be deemed to have been concluded in the United Kingdom & shall be governed by the laws of England & Wales. Please ensure you read & understand these before placing an order &, quite simply, if you do not accept these conditions please do not use this website.
I accept worldwide orders & by placing an order for the purchase of goods from GIG.INK & the subsequent issue of an acceptance email sent by GIG.INK confirming your order, you enter a contractual agreement with me bound by the following Terms & Conditions.
Payments are accepted through PayPal, as it is a safe & widely accepted method of payment for worldwide purchases via the Internet. PayPal accepts all major credit & debit cards & you do not need a PayPal account in order to make a payment using their service. Your transactions are protected by PayPal’s highly sophisticated fraud-prevention system. In completing your order, you will be directed to Paypal’s website, either to log in to your account or if you don’t have an account enter your billing information. You will then authorise the payment via your account or card of choice, & be returned to this site, where you will confirm your order.
All my products are ‘bespoke goods’ produced personally by me 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 & 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 & the right to cancel will be removed. This will not affect your statutory rights with regards to damaged or faulty goods, plus as an artisan & glorified one-man band who takes great pride in my work I am fully accountable & contactable should you ever need.

Alas, due to repeated attempts to counterfeit my plate designs I simply do not sell to or ship to China.
