Please read these conditions of sale carefully.
You will be asked to expressly agree to these conditions of sale before you place an order for products from our website.
In these conditions of sale, “we” means Gauntleys Preston Limited trading as Flex4 (and “us” and “our” will be construed accordingly); and “you” means our customer or potential customer for products (and “your” will be construed accordingly).
(3) Order process
The advertising of products on our website constitutes an “invitation to treat”; and your order for products constitutes a contractual offer. No contract will come into force between you and ourselves unless and until we accept your order in accordance with the procedure detailed below.
In order to enter into a contract to purchase products from us, you will need to take the following steps: Chose your product and selected your choice of quantity and paper finish. Add the products you wish to purchase to your shopping cart, and then proceed to the checkout; (ii) if you are a new customer, you must then create an account with us and log in; if you are an existing customer, you must enter your login details; (iii) once you are logged in, you must select your preferred method of delivery and confirm your order and your consent to these conditions of sale; (iv) you will be transferred to the Sagepay website, and Sagepay will handle your payment; (v) we will then send you an initial acknowledgment; and (vi) once we have checked whether we are able to meet your order, we will either send you an order confirmation (at which point your order will become a binding contract) or we will confirm by email that we are unable to meet your order.”
We will not file a copy of these conditions of sale specifically in relation to your order. We may update the version of these conditions of sale on the website from time to time, and we do not guarantee that the version you have agreed to will remain accessible. We therefore recommend that you download, print and retain a copy of these conditions of sale for your records.
The only language in which we provide these conditions of sale is English.
Before you place your order, you will have the opportunity of identifying whether you have made any input errors by reviewing your details before the payment pages. You may correct those input errors before placing your order by clicking the ‘back’ button on the page.
(4) The products
Business cards, business stationery, letterheads, compliment slips, printed envelopes, banner stands, banners, pop up displays, outdoor signs, flyers, leaflets, postcards, folded leaflets and cards, posters, display boards, canvas prints, booklets, paperback books, dissertation and thesis printing and binding, NCR pads and sets, CAD printing.
(5) Price and payment
Prices for products are quoted on our website. The website contains a large number of products and it is always possible that some of the prices on the website may be incorrect. We will verify prices as part of our sales procedures so that a product’s correct price will be stated when you pay for the product.
In addition to the price of the products, you will have to pay a nominal delivery charge, which will be as stated when you pay for the product unless you elect to “collect from store” in which case delivery charges will not apply.
Payment must be made upon the submission of your order. We may withhold the products and/or cancel the contract between us if the price is not received from you in full in cleared funds.
The prices on the website exclude all value added taxes (where applicable).
Payment for all products must be made by either, Credit, Debit Card or Paypal.
Prices for products are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect contracts which have come into force.
If you dispute any payment made to us you must contact us immediately and provide full details of your claim. If you submit an unjustified credit card, debit card or other charge-back then you will be liable to pay us, within 7 days following the date of the charge-back: (i) an amount equal to the amount of the charge-back; (ii) all third party expenses incurred by us in relation to the charge-back (include charges made by our or your bank or payment processor or card issuer); (iii) an administration fee of GBP £12 (including VAT); and (iv) all our reasonable costs, losses and expenses incurred in recovering the amounts referred to in this paragraph (including without limitation legal fees and debt collection fees).
Without prejudice to our other rights, if you submit an unjustified credit card, debit card or other charge-back, then we may terminate any contracts between you and us under these terms of sale by giving you written notice of termination.
For the avoidance of doubt, if you fail to recognise or fail to remember the source of an entry on your card statement or other financial statement, and make a charge-back as a result, this will constitute an unjustified charge-back.
(6) Your warranties
You warrant to us that:
- you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts, and you have full authority, power and capacity to agree to these conditions of sale;
- the information provided in your order is accurate and complete;
- you will be able to accept delivery of the products;
- you are resident in England or Wales; and Scotland
(7) Delivery policy
Our prices are based on our Standard Delivery which is 5-7 working days from the date of our order confirmation.
Where Express Delivery has been selected, that is, 3-4 working days from the date of our order confirmation, a surcharge of 15% is added before VAT at the checkout. The first working day commences on the working day a print ready PDF file is received by us provided it is received before 9.30am on that working day. If received after 9.30am then the first working day will commence the following working day.
Every endeavour will be made by us to deliver all orders within the agreed time frames but are not guaranteed. In the unlikely event that we fail to deliver an Express Delivery within the 4 working days then the 15% surcharge will be refunded in full and in the event that we fail to deliver a Standard Delivery order within 7 working days we do guarantee that dispatch of the product ordered will be within 30 days of the later of receipt payment and the date of our order confirmation unless there are exceptional circumstances.
We will only deliver products within mainland United Kingdom within the time frames stipulated and for the single delivery charge charged at the checkout, but we are willing to enter into a special arrangement if delivery is required outside these areas, the terms and conditions to be discussed and agreed between the two parties.
Similarly, where “Panic Turnaround” is required a special arrangement is agreed between the two parties by discussion and written confirmation of the terms and conditions of that arrangement. Nevertheless a surcharge of at least 25% on the standard advertised price will be incurred.
(8) Risk and ownership
The products will be at your risk from the time of delivery. Ownership of the products will only pass to you upon the later of:
- delivery of the products; and
- receipt by us of full payment of all sums due in respect of the products (including delivery charges).
We will be entitled to recover payment for the products even where ownership has not passed to you.
You have a right to cancel an order as long as the print process has not started and provided that it is not as a result of you finding a cheaper price elsewhere. The print process is deemed to have started once our graphic design team have accessed and opened any files supplied.
Where a printed proof has been ordered and the print order subsequently cancelled for whatever reason, then a refund will be given for the total value of the order less the cost of the printed proof(s) less a £50 administration charge.
A cancellation fee will apply and covers admin charges, artwork verification and proof preparation. It is

Nothing in these conditions of sale affects your statutory rights (including your right to receive a refund in respect of any defective product we sell to you).
(11) Returns and Refunds
We will not accept any liability for errors, grammar, spelling or omissions made on artwork approved or supplied by you. If the order arrives damaged, or defected, it is necessary to inform us about this fact within 10 days from delivery.
We reserve a right to ask for samples of damaged or defected goods before we offer a re-print or refund. On the sight of samples we will decide on how to proceed depending on the fault. If we are at fault we will offer a re-print, or partial refund or full refund depending on the error.
Claims received later than 10 days after delivery day might be rejected.
All sales are final since we customise each order according to your request. We give no refunds or credit but if we verify that we made an error, we will re-print your order.
If you cancel a contract and are entitled to a refund, we will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase. We will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any event, within 30 days of the day we received your valid notice of cancellation.
