Refund and Return Policy
Our refund and return policy is only valid worldwide. Please take note of the different time-sensitive guarantees:
7 Day “No Questions Asked” Refunds and Returns on all our Products
Not what you expected? If you have not altered your wall art in any way (i.e. for wall stickers you have not cut, used or stuck them – or in the case of imported wallpaper/murals: you have not opened the outer plastic packaging); then the cooling off period applies and you can get a full refund (or return) by emailing us within 7 days of receipt. You will then need to send it back to one of our Johannesburg depot with a traceable delivery method and we will process the refund or replacement once we have received the wall art (and are satisfied that the conditions above have been met). The cooling off period does not apply to personalised or custom stickers i.e. personalised names and/or custom sizes and/or colours.
14 Day “Check for Faults” Quality Guarantee on all our Products
Not that we expect you to find any – but for extra peace of mind and especially when it comes to imported wallpaper and murals, we have no way of checking if all the printing/product is defective as it is a closed package. We understand that you may need more than 7 days to check and /or start to install so we have an extra “check for faults” quality guarantee.
The following conditions within 14 days of receipt of your imported Wallpaper and Murals from us (a copy of this is also included in your wallpaper pack):
2). Once batches are checked please open the roll from packaging and unroll first few metres to check for any print errors or any unusual markings on the wallpaper. This is very rare, but sometimes during production, small errors can occur. Please contact us if there are defects on the roll, prior to installation. Our guarantee does not extend to print errors once the wallpaper is cut or installed on your wall.
3). Before you commence installation or apply paste (where applicable), please check that there are sufficient rolls to complete the job. Different pattern matches can lead to wastage. Proceed with cutting the product to desired lengths. Check that your drops align and there is no issue with matching the pattern. Please contact us if the patterns do not align prior to installation.
4). Please make sure that the surface on which the material is to be hung is checked thoroughly and suitably prepared for hanging. If you satisfied with the above 4 points, please read the instructions on the back of the manufacturer’s label – our “checking for faults” guarantee does not extend to wallpaper or murals after 14 days from receipt.
N.B. It is also your responsibility to make sure when using professional installers that they accept the terms above.
5 Year 100% Installed Wall Art Product Guarantee on all our Products
All our products are guaranteed to last at least 5 years (from receipt of goods) when installed indoors and as per the instructions enclosed in your package (and/or on our website). Our products can withstand indirect sunlight, normal fluctuating indoor temperatures and some even light moisture (product dependant). This guarantee excludes all labour costs as you must check for faults before you actually install any product.
Our wall decals (and any product supplied on sticky back sticker material) are not guaranteed to stick to rough and textured walls. If your wall sticker is defective (and you have already cut or stuck it on the wall), we will gladly replace the defective parts/or whole sticker. Please be extra careful not get to get dust nor grubby finger marks on the back of repositionable Peel & Stick Decals as that will deem them ineffective and not under our guarantee.
Lost or Damaged Goods in Transit
Your order was in perfect condition when it was dispatched and is fully insured by our courier company. We also place them in protective cardboard tubes or box, so even if they get a little battered on the outside or the tube looks damaged, the actual stickers or wallpaper may not be. If this is not the case, please let us know and we will replace them and claim from the courier company. If your goods were lost, we will help you by possibly replacing products and claim from the courier company. This does not apply if you send your own courier company or representative.
Cancellation of orders by the client must be done before your order gets dispatched. This can take anything from 1 hour – 7 days from ordering. Once dispatched, orders cannot be cancelled as they have already been sent. If you would still like to cancel, then the cooling off period applies and you can get a full refund by emailing us within 7 days of receipt and then you need to return the unused goods to us (or the address supplied by us). You cannot cancel any personalised or custom stickers i.e. personalised names, custom sizes or custom colours once produced.
Locally Produced Wall Art Colour
We try our best to match the actual colour of the product/colour chart on our website for our South African produced Wall Art. There will always be a slight difference in the colours shown on screens compared to the actual wall art colours. We understand that screen colours (RGB) of different devices will show differently to each other and to the actual colours (flat standard colour and/or CMYK full colour printing) of the products supplied. With the imported wallpaper, each batch of wallpaper has slight colour variances so it is very difficult for us to show a perfect colour representation on our website Another consideration is that the light within a room will change the colour depending on the time of the day and, for instance, will look completely different at night (we know how busy you are in the day) compared to noon when the sun is bright.
Do not open wallpaper/mural plastic packaging or cut, stick or use the wall art if you think you are not going to ‘grow happy with the colour’ of the products supplied. Please email us within 7 days of receipt so we can replace the colour or refund you.
Product Availability and Stock
Most of our Wall Stickers are produced in South Africa on order so we rarely have any stock issues with those. We are, however, dependant on material colour availability and, as much as it has never happened, but there may come a time where we have a shortage of colours. If this is the case, we expect that colours could become available within a few weeks and we will contact by email and let you know. We do understand if you are not willing to wait and we will give you a full refund for the out of stock product.
With regards to imported wallpaper and murals we sell, we try our very best to keep an eye on local availability – but stock can change on a daily basis (even hourly sometimes). It doesn’t happen very often but should the product you ordered not be in stock, it will either be on back-order on our website (delivery date is usually specified on the product page) or we will let you know via email when we expect it it arrive in the country. We are very dependant on customs for our stock to clear so we tend to give the worst case scenario. We do, understand if you are not willing to wait and we will give you a full refund for the out of stock product.
