Terms & Conditions
When you place an order to purchase products direct from Dotty about Paper, you are offering to purchase goods subject to these terms and conditions. Your order represents an offer to us to purchase a product – this offer is accepted by us only when we have take payment for the product and dispatched that product to you. We may send you an e-mail confirming that we have received your order that may contain the details of your order, however this email does not represent acceptance of your order, only confirmation that we have received your offer. In the event that we take payment for and ship only part of your order, only that part of your order that we have taken payment for and dispatched to you will form that contract.
By necessity we will rely on the information you have provided in your order to process it, take payment and deliver it, and you are therefore responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the details provided on the order form and we will not be obliged to accept an order unless all details requested on the order form have been entered correctly. Whilst in normal circumstances we are pleased to receive orders for our products, we do reserve the right to refuse any order placed with us and will not be required to provide an explanation.
Cancellation of an order
If you wish to cancel your order before any work has commenced on your order, a full refund will be given. If your order includes personalised cards or stationery and artwork has been set, a charge will apply. This charge will depend upon the items ordered (for example table plans and orders of service take a lot of time to set artwork).
Pricing & Availability
The prices for direct sale to individual consumers for an order will be those shown on this web site at the date and time that the order is received.
Due to the nature of many of our products being handmade, small variations to the photos shown can apply.
Please note that dispatch estimates are just that - they are not guaranteed dispatch times and should not be relied upon as such. As we process your order, we will inform you by e-mail if any products you order turns out to be unavailable.

Sage Pay or Paypal (preferred)

The goods will be delivered to you, the buyer, at the address provided by you on the order form. Title to the goods will pass to you, the buyer, on payment in full of the price of the goods. The risk of the goods shall pass to you upon dispatch to this address. Any time or date for delivery by us is provided to you in good faith but is an estimate only and no liability will be accepted for any loss whatsoever suffered or caused through late delivery or non-delivery.
