 Cancellation

Cancelation accepted up to 3 days. Unfortunately after that timeframe cancellation is not accepted because working progress started. 

SHIPPING

Design by c works with UPS, Royal Mail International. Shipping inside Europe normally takes 1-10days; UK 1-3 days and Shipping to the US takes 7 -10 days; Some other international destinations might take up to 7-14 days – this time frame is excluding possible customs issues.


We want to make clear that once the package leaves our company it is out of our hands. We try our best to interpose the communication between client and courier, but most of it has to be done by the client itself. Design by C can not take any responsibilities for lost package by 3rd parties. Please understand that. 

In some cases the international packages will be charged taxes and custom duties to be released – we can’t predict those charges and they have nothing to do with our company, therefore they must be payed by the client. Notice that custom clearance procedures might delay the delivery.

Please note that we are legally not allowed to list items as gifts or to write down lower values to circumvent possible fees.

Return/Exchange costs:

Regularly we get the question why shipping/returns are not free and sometimes we get accusations that this is to the disadvantage of the customer. We would like to explain this because the bottom line is: free shipping/return does not exist.

Some companies offer free shipping and returns for their customers. That sounds nice, but in fact the shipping and return costs are already included in the product. If you buy 1 product, the product price is: product price + shipping costs + return shipping costs + handling costs.

So if you buy 1 product and decide to keep it then you have paid for your shipping costs but you have also paid for your return costs.

Because we like to keep shopping with us fun and accessible we do not have higher prices but because of this we do not guarantee a return cost.


QUALITY ISSUES:

We strongly ask you to check your items once they are received. If there is any quality issue on it we would like to be notified as soon as possible, otherwise it is extremely difficult for us to know if the damage was done prior to shipment. If there is by any chance a problem caused by us in your dress, we will be more than happy to refund the costs of the return and send you a new item as soon as possible. 


ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND FAQS

- Please note, there might be some slight differences in the color tone/shade of the website's photo and the actual item. That is due to the photo editing made by the photographers and different screen calibrations.

- The structure of the fabric can also be changed by the fabric suppliers.- There always is color difference between the materials. We strive to make them look as close to each other as possible, but because fabrics are also made in different colour baths, we do not have a 100% guarantee on this. 

- If you have any concern or doubt about colors and structures please email us before your order.

- The photographer is always responsible for the safety of his/her client. Design by C is therefore not responsible for any accidents.
