The advice offered is given in good faith. The Pixie Gallery will accept no responsibility whatsoever for any form of loss or damage of any kind including direct, consequential, incidental, special, punitive or any other damages whatsoever and howsoever caused as a result of any action or inaction as a direct or indirect result of any person reading or consuming in any way any content, textural or otherwise, contained herein.
ORDER TERMS & CONDITIONS
All orders must be paid for in full before they can be collected or despatched if the framer deems necessary. Usually we will ask for payment on collection, once the framing has been completed.
Completed frames must be collected from The Pixie Gallery, unless it is agreed otherwise or if the Pixie Gallery has agreed to deliver to the customer’s home address, within 6 months of The Pixie Gallery notifying the customer of completion. If the customer does not collect within this timeframe, The Pixie Gallery is at liberty to use reasonable measures to recoup the cost of the framing, including but not limited to, selling the item.
While we always endeavour to meet deadlines The Pixie Gallery can accept no liability for failure to do so, or for any consequential costs or inconvenience incurred by the customer. As such, all timings given for deliveries or collection of work will be understood to be approximate.
Although every care and attention is given to any work left with us for framing all customers are advised to take their own precautions to ensure their work is fully covered against loss or damage.
Customers providing their own materials for us to work do so on the understanding that The Pixie Gallery cannot be held responsible for any mistakes or accidents which may occur to those materials.
The Pixie Gallery will not be held responsible for any loss, damage or inconvenience caused by the use of any items provided by The Pixie Gallery beyond the replacement of goods deemed to be faulty. At no time, will The Pixie Gallery’s liability exceed the price paid for the items purchased.
The Pixie Gallery reserves the right to require full payment before commencing work on any order and while we always endeavour to ensure that any estimate we give is as accurate as possible, the final price for any work cannot be confirmed until a firm order is placed.
Due to technical limitations of machinery our tolerance parameters are +/-2mm. While most work will be far more accurate we are unable to guarantee higher precision than this. If you require higher precision this must be stated at the time of placing an order and we will price the work accordingly or advise that it is not possible.
The grain of wood varies from piece to piece. While great care is taken to select matching timber, we cannot guarantee complete matching (particularly on large frames), freedom from knots & other natural figuring, or that frames will match the grain of sample pieces.
Stain samples are an approximate indicator of frame colour; we cannot guarantee exact matching. Final frame colour will depend on the base wood colour. Please note that the colour of wood changes with age & this will in turn affect stain colours. Many stains are dye based and will also be affected by the level of exposure to light.
