How long will my order take

We aim to dispatch all stock orders received by 1pm the same working day*.  The exception to this is an order containing custom/personalised items as these items are custom made to your individual requirements the order will take longer to prepare and dispatch (see below).

Once dispatched DPD have a 99% next day delivery success rate.  This rate may drop around exceptional events e.g. Christmas, weather events. 

*Orders containing personalised items or custom products:

Orders containing personalised items or custom products take a little longer as they are made to your individual requirements.  Allow an additional 4-5 work days for our custom banners, tassels and confetti and up to 10 work days for personalised ribbon.

Please write the event date in the comments section at the checkout especially if your order contains personalised products. 

For holiday closures or day closures a notice will be placed on the top of the website.

Shipping is charged at a fixed price for each order regardless of the number of items bought.

Please ensure you use a shipping address where someone will be available to sign for the delivery. You cannot request a delivery time or a delivery slot ( for example you cannot request a delivery take place only in the morning, only in the afternoon, or after 3). The courier takes a set route every day and is in your area at the same time each day.

For security reasons you cannot request the courier deliver to a different address. You must contact us to arrange the redirect. Please note if the new address is handled by a different depot (there may be more than one depot in a county) then a new delivery charge of €4.99 will apply.

Once we have packed your order and it is ready to be collected by the courier you will be sent an ‘Order Completed’ email.

For missed courier deliveries, you will be left a card informing you of an attempted delivery or the courier may try to contact you by phone . You will need to arrange a collection from their depot, although the courier may also at their discretion re-deliver free of charge. You can always collect your goods from the couriers depot following a missed delivery free of charge, don’t forget to take the couriers note with you and some photographic form of ID though, or they won’t be able to release your package.

If goods are returned to the because of an incorrect, incomplete address or after 3 failed attempts to deliver, or no response to couriers contact attempts, the carriage is not refundable.

If we have to re-route a delivery due to an incorrect or incomplete address or if you wish to change the delivery address once the goods have been dispatched, there will be a re-delivery charge of €4.99 even if you received free delivery.

I live in Waterford, can I collect my order?

Unfortunately it is no longer possible to collect from our warehouse.

Already ordered, made a mistake or forgotten something

If you have forgotten something or need to change any products you have ordered we are happy to help as long as your order has not been shipped. Once your order has been collected by our courier its to late.

I need my order tomorrow/urgent order, can you do next day delivery?

We process orders in order of receipt so if you are in a hurry please contact us and we will  always try to help.  We used DPD Couriers next working day shipping service but please note, we can never tell you that we guarantee next day delivery!

Provided there is time we are happy to pack your order up ready for our courier to collect that afternoon (we don’t charge extra for this, we are simply happy to help).

99% of orders are delivered by the next working day but there is always that 1% that is why we cannot guarantee next day delivery. In fact no shipping service can absolutely 100% guarantee that you will receive your order next day.

We do ask that once you place your order you contact us straight away as we may be busy packing other orders and might not see your order come in.   

Please note during poor weather and busy periods (e.g. Christmas period) a courier companies next day success rate will reduce.

You will receive an ‘order email’. 

Orders are usually processed in order of receipt, if your order is urgent please make sure you let us know, either contact us after the order is placed or include the event date in the comments box at the checkout.
