If you wish to return your goods, please read the Silverprint Returns Policy and follow the instructions.

Silverprint Returns Policy 

Subject to the right of consumers to return goods for refund under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 and the Consumer Rights Act 2015, Silverprint ltd does not sell products on a trial basis. Customers are strongly advised to check suitability and specifications of products before ordering.

We offer customers the opportunity to return goods up to 28 days after receipt (“the Returns Period”), subject to the terms and conditions in this returns policy.

You must prior to returning any goods received, contact our Customer Services Department on or by completing our returns form.

Please note that you might not be able to return to our store. Certain items: special orders, made to order items, raw chemicals, some ready chemicals, light sensitive products, items needs to be kept in the frigde we will not be able to accept as a return. Please make sure that you email before you return any goods to our stores.

Failure to contact us in respect of a return or cancellation in line with one of the methods set out above will result in a delay in processing your refund or the product being returned to you. All authorised returns must be returned to: Returns, Silverprint Ltd, Unit 26 Albany Business Park, Cabot Lane, Poole BH17 7BX

If you exercise your right to cancel your order after the goods have been despatched, you will be responsible for returning the goods to Silverprint ltd at your own risk and cost, therefore we strongly recommend you use an insured delivery method, such as Royal Mail Special Delivery. For items which cannot ordinarily be returned by post, we will at your request use our reasonable endeavours to arrange a courier to collect the goods; the estimated maximum cost of this would be £10 per item. (See below in relation to the return of faulty goods.)

All returns are subject to the following conditions, except where the goods are faulty or incorrectly described on the Web Site.

- Your product must be complete, including all accessories, in its original box / packaging and in 'as new' condition (e.g. if you have opened the box to examine the product you must have done so without damaging or marking the product or packaging). We may accept returns within the Returns Period that do not fully comply with this requirement, but this will be subject to agreeing a restocking charge to cover the loss that we might reasonably expect to incur in reselling the item(s).

- Software, memory cards and DVDs can only be accepted if still sealed. This policy is to avoid any potential breach of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act (CDPA) 1988. All opened software is exempt from return under the terms of the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013. Software that arrives damaged or is physically faulty may be returned under our normal returns policy.

- We cannot accept returns on photographic film, paper or emulsions, due to the high sensitivity of these products. 

- A proof of purchase must be supplied. 

- You must return any free gifts which came with the product.

- We will not refund any items that have been specially ordered to your individual specification or personalised.

- Until such time as you return the goods to us you must take reasonable care of the item(s). Any use of or damage to the delivered goods or product packaging beyond that necessary to inspect the goods upon delivery may result in you incurring a restocking charge to cover the loss that we might reasonably expect to incur in reselling the item(s).

If you exercise your right to cancel your order within 30 days (where the goods are not found to be faulty), we will reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (except for the supplementary costs arising if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us).

Faulty goods: For faulty goods we offer the following terms:

- You will always have the option of an exchange or refund if the fault occurs within 30 days of delivery.

- If there is a fault with your product within six months of delivery but after the first 30 days, we will contact the supplier for further instrcutions, and actions. At our discretion you may instead be offered an exchange or refund or, if you wish to keep the item, we will seek to agree with you a partial refund of the original price paid. In the event that we arrange for a replacement and this does not remedy the fault, we will then offer a refund. 

- After six months, unless you can demonstrate that the fault was present at the time of original delivery or we have previously arranged a repair and this has failed to resolve the fault, our liability will be limited to providing you with reasonable support to make a claim under the manufacturer’s warranty, where applicable. 

In all cases we reserve the right to inspect the product and verify the fault and, if no fault is found, return the product to you. In these circumstances, no refund will be processed until the returned goods have been received by us and an appraisal made as to any fault. This promise does not cover faults caused by accident, neglect, misuse or normal wear and tear.

Any refund due to a fault or other defect will include a refund of the delivery charge. In such circumstances we will also pay for your costs of returning the goods (up to £10 in the UK and £20 outside the UK). Beyond six months you will be responsible for covering the costs of returning the goods (unless you have been able to establish that the goods were defective at the time of original delivery, in which case we will reimburse your costs as set out above). We strongly recommend you use an insured method such as Royal Mail Special Delivery. Replacement goods are sent by standard delivery only (i.e. premium services are not available).

Refunds will be processed within 5 days of receipt of the returned products.

This Returns Policy does not affect your statutory rights. Details of your statutory rights are available from the Citizens Advice Bureau or Consumer Direct.
