Shipping & Returns Policy

Shipping

We are a UK based company and do not offer global shipping at this time. 
All parcels dispatched directly from ourselves are shipped using Royal Mail and are dispatched within two business days. Custom made and made-to-order items are shipped directly from the supplier and may take up to 3 business days to be dispatched.

Everything shipped directly from us is done so using second class (3-5 business days) domestic shipping as standard, with an upgrade to first class (1-2 business days) available at checkout. All custom made and made-to-order items are tracked as standard, which cannot be changed. The courier service used may vary. 

Please note that delivery days are estimates only, and there may be delays during busier times of the year such as seasonal holidays. Please keep in mind that delivery estimates are taken from the day your parcel is dispatched and not from the day you made the purchase.

If your order contains more than one item and one of the items is either custom made or made-to-order, these items will arrive in separate packages. Please don't panic if your order does not arrive on the same day. These items are sent out directly from the supplier, and dispatch times may differ slightly. You will be notified of all dispatches via email or text depending on the information you provided at checkout. 
 

Returns

We have a 14 day return policy, which means you have 14 days from the day you receive your item to request a return. To be eligible for a return, your item must be in the same condition that you received it, unworn or unused, with tags, and in its original packaging. You’ll also need the receipt or proof of purchase.


Exceptions / non-returnable items

Certain types of items cannot be returned, like perishable goods (such as food, flowers, or plants), custom products (such as special orders or personalised items), and personal care goods (such as beauty products).
Unfortunately, we cannot accept returns on sale items or gift cards.

Please get in touch if you have questions or concerns about your specific item.


Request a Return

To start a return, you need to contact us at hello@papercrate.co.uk. If your return is accepted, we’ll provide instructions on how and where to send your package. Items sent back to us without first requesting a return will not be accepted.

Please note that you are responsible for the return shipping/postage costs. Please consider tracking your item with the postal service or obtaining postal insurance as we cannot be held responsible if your item is lost on its way back to us. For any shortfall in shipping/postage fees that we incur, the shortfall value will be deducted from the refund issued.

When your return has been received by us we will inspect it, and approve or reject your refund request. You will be notified of the decision via email. If a refund is approved, the purchase value (deducting any shipping cost shortfall) will be credited to your original method of payment and to the original account holder only.

Please note that a gift recipient will not be able to request a refund and should contact the sender/purchaser for them to get in touch with us within 14 days of the purchase date.

Refunds are authorised immediately and although the funds may leave our account straight away it may take longer for the amount to show in your account. Processing times can differ depending on your bank or credit card company but this usually doesn't take any longer that 5 to 7 working days.


Damages and Issues

Please inspect your order upon receipt and contact us immediately if the item is defective, damaged or if you receive the wrong item, so that we can evaluate and resolve the issue.

Whilst we have taken every effort to ensure the items arrive with the recipient in perfect condition. If upon opening your parcel you find something has gone wrong, please contact us within 14 days of receiving it at hello@papercrate.co.uk and we will be happy to help put things right.


Faulty

Despite the manufacturer's best efforts sometimes things just do not work as expected, and when this happens it disappoints us all. If you believe your product is malfunctioning or is faulty in any way please let us know so that we can resolve the situation.


Misdescribed

If you receive an item that is unfit for purpose because it was described inaccurately or was misleading in any way please let us know so that we can investigate the situation and get the issue resolved for you.


Changes

If you wish to make a change to your order please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate your needs. If the changes are possible, we will inform you of any price changes and the impact it may have on delivery times. We will also provide any additional information we deem relevant as a request of your change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you have the right to cancel the order.


Cancellations

If you wish to cancel an order please contact us as soon as possible. If your order has not been dispatched we will cancel the order and issue a full refund. You will also receive an email notification to confirm this. If you do not receive this email please check your spam folder.

We pride ourselves on quick dispatch times so if your order has already been shipped you must return the items within 14 days of receiving them to be considered for a refund. To qualify for a refund you must follow the returns procedure and fulfil the criteria outlined in the returns section of this document.

In rare circumstances, we may have to cancel an order. Should this situation ever arise you will be notified of the reason and issued a full refund.


Missing parcel

In the unforeseen and unlikely event that your parcel has not been delivered within 21 days, please contact us at hello@papercrate.co.uk and we will attempt to confirm its whereabouts with the postal service. If the postal service deem the item to be missing, we will offer to either replace the items or issue you with a full refund.

If you should at a later date receive the missing parcel, we would appreciate being notified so that we can arrange a way for the item to be returned to us at no extra cost to you. We may even provide you with a promotional offer for your honesty.
