Your Guarantees

We know that mail order can add uncertainty about what you are buying, we want you to buy with absolute confidence.

  • We always set competitive prices.

  • You may change your mind and cancel your order at any time from placing the order until 7 working days after you take delivery. For details see Returning Goods below.

Your statutory rights are not affected by this guarantee.

Damaged/Missing Goods

Please contact us if you do not receive your order when expected. Although, next working day delivery is not guaranteed, there is rarely a delay. Parcels sent by our courier company can be traced through their tracking system. Call or email us with your concerns and we will investigate.

Do not accept parcels that appear to be damaged and notify us immediately if you have refused delivery or received a damaged parcel. If you do take delivery it is advisable to sign for goods as ‘unexamined’. Should the contents be damaged, you will need to answer enquiries and keep the packaging as evidence, otherwise we cannot accept responsibility for compensation. Damaged goods will be exchanged or refunded in full, plus any additional postage you incur.

Returning Goods

  • Please telephone us immediately if the goods arrive damaged. A full refund, including postage costs, will be made on receipt of the returned goods.

  • You may change your mind and cancel your order at any time from placing the order until 7 working days after you take delivery. Your cancellation must be in writing, either by letter or email, and the cost of returning the goods will remain your responsibility. The goods must be returned undamaged and capable for resale at the full price. You will receive a refund of the product cost, net of any restocking charge (10%) made, within 30 days. If preferred, a credit towards your account can be made. This guarantee cannot be extended to any item that has been made to your specification, or which is not a stock item, purchased to your special request.

  • If, in the unlikely event that the wrong goods are supplied, please telephone us. A full refund, including postage costs, will be made on receipt of the returned goods.

Payment Options

There are 5 payment options:

Pay now with a credit or debit card:

Credit card and debit card payments are processed through a secure payment page by an independent company called Sagepay (how secure am I? find out more...).  Sagepay ask you for your payment card details and then refer to the debit/credit card issuer. Validation is confirmed by the password you enter at this stage.  All your card details and password are handled by the card issuer and this information is not made known to George Weil & Sons Ltd. 



Pay later with a credit/debit card:

A confirmation email will be sent.  Telephone 01483 565800 and quote the order number to arrange payment with a credit/debit card within 5 working days.

Product Advice

Due to the nature of the materials we sell, there will often be variation from batch to batch and with the papers, between sheets.  We suggest you order the required quantity to complete a project and we will try to match items as closely as possible. Whilst we are happy to give advice on product use, we cannot accept liability as conditions of use are totally outside our control.
