- Any postage fees incurred when returning your order will be your responsibility unless the returned item(s) is faulty or has been incorrectly supplied by ourselves. We will not be responsible for any additional postage fees unless for these reasons. Sizing information is clearly on every page and is not considered a reason for return postage to be refunded.
- All items MUST be returned to us in the exact same condition you received them. They must be unworn, unwashed, and in their original packaging or labels.
- T-Shirt returns will not be refunded or exchanged if they have been worn (other than trying them on), washed, smell of perfume or deodorant, cigarettes, are covered in hair, or any reason that will deem them unfit for resale.

If you have received a dispatch email from us, and it's been longer than 7 working days, please contact us if you believe your order is missing. In most cases, delivery will have been attempted while you were not in. If your order is bigger than your letterbox it is quite likely it is now at your local sorting office. Unfortunately, a card is not always left.
- If you've checked with your local sorting office and your order is not there, we will attempt to locate it for you.
- If the order is deemed lost we will either send out a replacement or action a refund. In either case we will fill out a lost claims form which may require your signature to show that it is a genuine claim.
- If your order is returned to us because you failed to collect it from your local sorting office, we will require you to pay additional postage to resend the order. If payment isn't received to resend it, we will cancel and refund your order.
- If you are placing an order which you know will not fit through your letterbox, and you know you most likely will not be in, please use a delivery address where it can be signed for, ie. a neighbour or your place of work.
- If you paid by PayPal and did not change your address on your PayPal account your order will have been dispatched to your old address. Paying using the PayPal button bypasses our registration process and takes the address directly from your PayPal account. Unfortunately, we cannot put in a claim with Royal Mail if you have not changed your address as the item will not be considered lost.
In the unfortunate event you have a complaint, please contact us immediately by telephone or email and state your problem. Unfortunately, mistakes do happen and we will do everything we can to help correct it.

When using the search box at the top of the website you can either use a product code (if you know it) or the specific name. Please bear in mind if you type in Lion T-shirt you will get all t-shirts because you used the word "T-shirt" in your search. If you want to find only lion t-shirts then simply type in "lion". Also be very careful with spelling as an incorrect spelling will not product a result. If you're looking for a kids t-shirt simply type in kids.
