3. Ordering from Tone’s Shop

3.1. Product description

We will endeavour to make sure that every product on tonecartoons.co.uk is shown accurately and that prices are correct. However, occasionally there may be small variations in colour, typefaces and layout.  Tone Cartoons disclaims all representations and warranties that the content or information on this Website is accurate, complete, up to date or does not infringe the rights of any third party.

3.2. Placing your order

When you place an order with us (by choosing an item and completing our online checkout process), we will send you an acknowledgement by email. This will detail the products you have ordered. Please note that your completion of the online checkout process does not constitute our acceptance of your order.

Our acceptance of your order only takes place when we despatch it. A ‘purchase contract’ between you and tonecartoons.co.uk  is therefore made at the point of despatch, rather than at the point of payment. If you have cancelled your order, or if we notify you that we cannot accept your order, then no purchase contract will have been made. 

From time to time, we may not be able to accept an order for the following reasons:

  1. If, unfortunately, we do not have your chosen goods in stock
  2. Where we cannot obtain authorisation for your payment
  3. If there has been a pricing or product description error
  4. If you do not meet any eligibility criteria set out in our terms and conditions

We reserve the right to cancel your order at any time and issue a full refund. This does not affect your statutory rights.

3.3. Ordering multiple gift products

  • Multiple items can be ordered at the same time and will be despatched on the same day.

3.4. Payment

At tonecartoons.co.uk, you can pay for your goods using credit or debit cards, or ‘Paypal’.

5. Delivery

We know just how important it is that your gifts arrive on time for that special occasion. During the order process, tonecartoons.co.uk will notify you of the despatch dates available and the expected timeframe for receiving your order. We will also make you aware of any delivery charges prior to the acceptance of your order.

Delivery times and charges will differ depending on which products you order. More details are set out below.

5.1. General despatch information

Please note:

  • The despatch date is the day WE SEND the item you have ordered, NOT the day it will be delivered.
  • Your order is likely to arrive much faster if you use a postcode. It sounds simple, but many people forget to add it!
  • You can check that you have the correct postcode by using the Royal Mail’s handy postcode finder www.royalmail.com

All our products are posted by Second Class in the UK. International delivery is posted by Airmail.

Please note:

  • Most of the packaging for mugs and T-shirts will not fit through a standard letter-box, so the recipient will need to be at the address to receive the order. If no one is in, the item will be returned to the nearest Royal Mail depot. A note will be left requesting its collection.

Emails are answered during business hours (8.30am – 6.30pm) in the order they are received. It is therefore possible that your order could begin production before your email is processed and we will be unable to make any changes.

If for any reason you are not happy with your Tone Cartoons order, please use our Contact Form. You will need to quote your order number and your email address that you have registered with. We will also need to have the address and the details of the problem with your order.

We aim to acknowledge any complaint within 14 working days, (usually it takes 1-2 days) and will do our best to resolve it within 28 days. We may ask you to take a photograph of the product to help us communicate with our suppliers and correct any future problems. Should it be necessary, we will then advise you how to return your item.

7.2. Returning products and issuing refunds
