Frequently Asked Questions
Please see below for some Frequently Asked Questions. Please feel free to contact us with any other questions you may have.
1. How Do I Pay?
Pretty and Personalised accepts payment via PayPal. You do not need to have a PayPal account to pay via PayPal. You can use a debit / credit card to pay as you would with any other payment gateway for an internet purchase. PayPal is a very secure method of payment, using SSL technology to encrypt all information and we never see any bank or card details.
2. How long do orders take to be made?
All items are handcrafted to order and are usually dispatched in 1-2 working days, although can sometimes take up to 3 working days. Please note, working days are Monday to Friday inclusive and do not include weekends and bank holidays.
3. I have an urgent order. Can it be made any quicker?
There is a text box at checkout where you can request your order for a specific date and we always try our best to post your order out in time, although this is not guaranteed. Please contact us before ordering if a specific date is imperative so that we can advise if this is possible, as we cannot offer a refund due to late delivery.
4. I have made a mistake with the wording on my order. Can it be changed?
If you realise you have made a mistake with the wording on an order, please contact us as soon as possible with your name and order details, and we will see if it is possible to change the order. It is not always possible to change the wording if the order has already been made, so please carefully check any spellings before confirming your order.
5. Have you received my order?
When you complete your order, you will automatically receive an order confirmation email with all your order details on there. If you have not received the order confirmation email, please check in your junk mail / spam folder. Alternatively you can check your PayPal account or bank details to see if payment has been taken out. If unsure, please contact us.
6. How will my order be posted?
Most orders are posted via Royal Mail, either 1st Class or 2nd Class post, depending on which option you chose at checkout.
Items which are posted via 1st Class post are generally delivered 1-2 working days after posting.
Items posted via 2nd Class post are generally delivered 2-3 working days after posting.
Please be aware that once your parcel has been handed to the Royal Mail I have no control over timescale of delivery. You will receive a dispatch email once your order has been posted so you will know when it is on its way. 1st and 2nd class post are untracked services.
Larger orders may be dispatched via courier.
7. Does delivery require a signature?
Your order will be post via Royal Mail, which does not require a signature. Please note, we are unable to take or pass on requests to leave items in safe places or with a neighbour etc.
8. I have not received my order yet.
Your order will be posted via 1st / 2nd class post which generally takes 1-3 working days, although it can take longer during busy periods and severe weather. 1st and 2nd class post are not tracked so we are unable to track an item once it is the hands of the Royal Mail. 15 working days must pass before Royal Mail will class an item as missing, so if you still have not received your order after 15 working days, please contact us and we will make a claim and send out a replacement.
9. What are these marks and patterns on the wooden photo frames?
The photo frames will have natural knots, grain patterns and colour variations in the wood which add to the beauty of the photo frame and make each one unique.
10. Can I have a different message on my order?
All items are made by myself to order so all items can be personalised as required. All items are handcrafted meaning no two items will be the same.
11. The item has arrived damaged...
If an item arrives damaged, please contact us as soon as possible, taking a photo of the damage if possible, and we will send out a replacement.
