Shipping & returns
Markeaton ships all its products by Royal Mail Second Class Post. Our customers are presented with a calculated postage charge for their order at the Checkout depending on the weight of their consignment and the delivery address. The charge is calculated automatically according to Royal Mail's published UK and international rates.
If our system is unable to calculate a postage cost, or if the total estimated weight of your consignment is over 1kg, then the customer will be alerted at the Checkout and the postage price will appear on the order as '£0.00'. We will then contact you before fulfilling the order to agree a postage price. The order will not be fulfilled until the agreed postage has been paid. Prints/cards are normally despatched within a week of receipt of order.
If we have insufficient stock to fulfil your requirements then you will be alerted at the earliest opportunity and a full refund provided. Payment via this website does not guarantee our acceptance of your order (see panel left).
We are unable to guarantee delivery of prints/cards by any particular date.
Important: Any customs or import duties are levied once our consignment reaches its destination country. Additional charges for customs clearance must therefore be borne by the recipient. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you may want to contact your local customs office for further information prior to purchase.
Returns and exchanges
Customers in the United Kingdom who are not completely satisfied with their online purchase may return it to us within 21 days for a full refund. Customers from outside the United Kingdom may return their purchase within 28 days for a full refund. Refunds are offered exclusive of return carriage.
All returned prints/cards must be completely undamaged and in appropriate protective packaging. We will not accept returned items for refund or exchange that show signs of damage.
How to return or exchange an item
1. Email us at email@example.com within 7 days of receipt of your order (14 days for overseas customers), indicating why you wish to return the item and whether you are looking for an exchange or a refund.
2. Package your item securely and appropriately and include a note of your own name, address, telephone number/email address and your order number (see your order confirmation email).

4. Post the package and email us again to confirm that the item has been despatched.
5. Returned items remain your responsibility until they are received by us. For your own protection, therefore, we recommend that you return your purchase using a postal or courier service that insures you for the value of the prints/cards. We are afraid we cannot refund your return postage costs.
6. Qualifying returns will be exchanged or refunded as soon as possible. You will be informed by email when your refund has been processed or when a replacement item has been despatched.
7. Refunds can only be made to the same PayPal account or credit/charge card, as the original payment. Similarly, exchange prints/cards will only be sent out to the same delivery address as the original order.
