Terms & Conditions

Please read these terms and conditions carefully before ordering from the website

Many Blue Fish Studios items are hand made or personalised to order so please allow for this before delivery and check our current production times. 

Custom Items

Please make sure that all spelling and grammar is checked on personalised orders and is correct at the time of checkout and again on your order confirmation email. If there are any mistakes visible please contact us asap so we can make the amendments to your order.

Please note all sizes given are approximate as clay shrinks during the drying and firing process.

Custom orders have a production time frame which is displayed on each category title page and on the main shop front page, please note this does not include delivery times.

Ceramic custom products that are made to order may vary slightly from the image pictured on the website, so no two will be exactly alike and there may be a slight variation in colours and shading.

Where possible we would love to display any new commissions on our website and offer your design as an option to other customers. 

Payment and Pricing

Pricing for products is clearly visible on the product pages. Payment is due immediately upon purchase via Paypal or using a debit or credit card. We do not store any information relating to your bank account, credit or debit card or paypal account. When you make a payment the payment is processed on our behalf by PAYPAL or NOCHEX. Paypal use encryption to safeguard your credit card information.

Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.  Our site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced.  We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you.  If a Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection. 

We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.

Postage 

All our items are individually calculated for postage dependent on their weight and price banded accordingly to give you the best price we can. We use the Royal Mail services for all our postage. All calculations for postage are clearly visible on the delivery and checkout page.

UK Orders: Expected delivery time is 3 - 5 working days from your item being dispatched.

Overseas Orders: Expected delivery time varies from country to country, but please allow 9-14 working days once your order has been dispatched. This may be longer at seasonal times.
