Mistakes and Typing Errors
All personalisation is taken directly from the invoice, generated by the website.
We ask that all spelling and grammar is checked before placing the order, as this is what we use when designing your products.
Any mistakes made on the invoice, which have not been bought to our attention will have a further cost incurred to replace the item - up to the full cost of the item, including the extra postage price. This charge is at our discretion, depending on work involved to rectify your order.
In a situation where Spencer-Brookes Designs have made a spelling error, we will replace the item at no extra cost.
