Terms and Conditions of Sale

PROCESSING AND DELIVERY TIME

Please allow 1-3 business days for processing time. Delivery time within Canada is 1-7 business days once shipped. Delivery time within the US is 3-10 business days once shipped. 

 

Please note, when Pre-Orders are being cut, retail orders may take a little longer. 

 

Pre-Orders take approximately 8-12 weeks for the fabric to be delivered to you. If there are any unforeseen delays, I will let you know of those delays as they occur. Please make sure you are part of our Facebook Group for all the latest updates. No discounts or refunds will be offered for orders fulfilled in this timeline. 

 

Every so often, life will prohibit me from shipping an order right away.  If you NEED your order by a certain date, please contact me so I can do my very best for you!

 

If you have any concerns, please message Mary Baume directly. 


 

SHIPPING 

We ship from Canada and ship internationally. We ship through the most economical way possible. Orders are typically shipped through Chitchats.  It can take a little longer than some other shipping options, but I have found them to be the most economical option.

Local pickup is available. We are located just West of Ottawa in Carp, Ontario. 


 

FLAWS 

Small flaws can be expected, especially close the selvedges. Any flaws that are larger than a dime will be offered for discount in the flawed album. Flaws smaller than a dime are deemed acceptable. Flaws along the selvedges themselves are disregarded as it is "unusable" material. Please understand that a flaw or two may have been missed. Please note that not all runs of the same print will come out identical. Keep in mind that colours may be different due to monitor settings/lighting and the nature of the printing process. A colour variance of 10% is deemed normal and acceptable. Discounts will not be given for colour differences unless it is drastic - for example, it was shown to be blue, but it printed purple instead.  Colours will vary with different batches.  

 

Please inspect and report any flaws prior to cutting or washing. I do recommend washing your fabrics in cold water or washing it with a colour catcher to help prevent bleeding or colour transfer. Due to the fabric's stretch, images may be printed at a slight curve, especially at the selvages - this is normal and is to be expected because of how the fabric behaves. 

 

Note that colours on different bases will appear differently. Polyester will often absorb more colour and therefore appear darker than cotton bases. 

 

Art errors will not be discounted.  Our work is inspected several times by myself, our printer, and our strike team, BUT we can still miss something.  If you spot something prior to printing, I encourage you to bring it to my attention and I will rectify the issue!  

 

If you would like to see a pattern done with a different colour scheme or background, please feel free to send me a message!  I am always open to input and ideas!
