Product Descriptions and Availability Every care has been taken to ensure accuracy of description, specifications, colour and price of all products. However, these may change due to circumstances beyond our control. We try to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products that appear on the V&A Shop website. However, as computer monitors vary, we cannot guarantee that your monitor's display of any colour will be completely accurate. Sizes are given as a guide only. Please be aware that handmade items are subject to variations in size, colour and shape owing to the unique nature of the product.
All items are offered subject to availability. The information displayed is considered as an invitation, not as a confirmed offer for sale. The contract is confirmed upon supply of goods. Prices include tax, if applicable. Postage and packing is an additional charge, for details please see information on Postage and Packing here.

Return postage charges are non-refundable unless your order was faulty or incorrect. International customs duties and sales taxes are not refunded for shipments outside the EU. If you are returning anything to us from outside the EU you must complete a customs declaration correctly indicating that the package contains “returned goods” or similar. We will not pay customs duty in order to receive back the returned item(s).
*Please note: items excluded from this policy are items that are made to your specifications or clearly personalised such as V&A Custom Prints; perishable or edible items such as flowers or chocolates; eyewear, tights and nail polish; and items which have been sealed where the seal is broken (such as pierced earrings). These items are non-refundable and cannot be exchanged unless they are faulty or damaged.
In the rare event that goods are delivered faulty or damaged please contact our Customer Services team on +44 (0)20 7942 2696 or email email@example.com so we can arrange a replacement or a refund. Goods are classified as faulty if they are received damaged, or when a manufacturing fault occurs within 6 months of purchase. Items that are damaged as a result of wear and tear are not considered to be faulty.
V&A Custom Prints damaged in transit should be left in the original packaging or enclosed in suitable return packaging. If the goods are not to your satisfaction you may receive a part refund provided the items remain in saleable condition and have not been damaged altered or used in any way. If you decide to return your made-to-order print for any reason, it is unlikely that we could sell it to another at full selling price. We will therefore charge a return fee of up to 20% of the order price. Refunding of any post and packaging costs will be at our discretion.
Any refunds granted will be credited to the Debit or Credit Card used at the time of order processing. Once we receive the item(s), we will issue a refund or replacement(s), whichever is requested and depending upon availability.
Refunds will be issued within 14 days of receipt of the returned goods. A refund will be issued for postage paid only when the item is found to be defective or incorrectly supplied from the original order. If you fail to return goods at your expense, the V&A Shop reserves the right to charge the direct costs for their recovery and may offset that amount against any refund due.
Please note that when returning an item, the parcel is your responsibility until it reaches us. We recommend that you ask your Post Office for a proof of posting (available free of charge). This guarantee does not affect your statutory rights.
