Samples can be issued charged at cost upon written request from the customer. This charge can then be deducted from the order value if requested in writing by the customer. With consent of the Director, samples may be issued on loan if in stock and must be returned in good condition within 30 days. An invoice will be raised after this time for any items not returned.
Proof samples are labour intensive and tend to disrupt production runs. Therefore a black and white paper proof suffices in most cases to overcome doubts as to correctness and definition. Charges for proofing will be quoted upon request.
- The prices for goods displayed for sale on this site are set by The Extra Step Limited. Delivery will be charged on an order-by-order basis, and any such additional charges are clearly displayed where they apply.

- A final invoice will be raised upon despatch of goods which may vary from that originally quoted to take into accounts any variances in amount or amendments to original order.

Retention of Title

- For security reasons a signature is required to acknowledge receipt. If you know that there will be no one available to sign for your delivery, it may be best to supply an alternative address for delivery.
