Our aim is to make the process of selecting and buying our tiles as easy and secure as possible. If anything on our website is not clear, or if you have any suggestions or comments please .
Please note that as a result of the manufacturing process of mosaic tiles minor colour or shade variations may be expected in the web images, colour charts, samples and despatched mosaic products. Such variation adds to the attraction and beauty of mosaic tiles, giving the distinctive mosaic appearance often not present in faux-mosaic tiles.
We have never experienced a problem that we have not been able to resolve, so if you do have a problem please contact us we will do what we can to resolve it.For your assurance we, to the best of our knowledge, fully comply with the following:
1. We adhere to the terms of the Sale of Goods Act, the EU Distance Selling Regulations and the EU Directive on Privacy and Electronic Communications
2. We donform to the Data Protection Act 1998
3. We povide security for the processing of credit card transactions
4. We include physical location and contact details for ourselves on our website
5. We display the total price you must pay for goods including delivery costs and provide a clear explanation of the delivery procedures
6. We advise you, the consumer, if 'cookies' are required for the processing of data (they are!)
7. We do not use 'spam' for marketing purposes
8. We avoid exploitation of children

|Making A Purchase|
If you've purchased tiles from us in the past then you know just how good they are. We're sure that our tiles in your kitchen, bathroom, shower or as part of your mosaic art look stunning and we're pleased that you're one of the many people to come back to buy more tiles from us!
If you're a first time visitor then we believe that it is important for you to experience the quality and colour of our mosaic tiles for yourself. Pictures on a web page cannot do them justice so we'd like to send you a sample.
When you've selected the tiles you like just giving your name, address and details of the tiles you are interested in and we will put a sample in the post to you - free of charge.
When you have decided which tiles you like making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our Catalog, and click on any items that you wish to buy to put them into the shopping cart. When you have finished your selection click on "Checkout" and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to satisfy the order.
You can order online or by telephone and pay using PayPal. Alternatively if you want to pay by cheque you can telephone your order to us and post a cheque to us. Your order will then be despatched when your cheque has cleared. We do not take payment for items until they are ready to ship. We do not advise that you send credit card details by e-mail or to leave them on our answerphone.
When you receive your confirmation of order, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the unlikely case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable and that you still want to progress with your order.

|Shipping And Handling|
Our delivery charges are £6.00 + VAT for every 3 boxes / 30 sheets (or part thereof).
NEW! We have added a new post option for customers who only want 1 or 2 sheets of tiles. You can now choose to have your order sent by Royal Mail (first class) for £3.50 + VAT for a single sheet or £4.50 + VAT for 2 sheets by Royal Mail standard parcel service. Ideal if you only need a few tiles!
We aim to deliver in 2 - 3 working days from order to all UK mainland destinations (apart from the north of Scotland and certain areas in the middle of Wales where deliveries can take a day longer).
Please for delivery charges to addresses not on the UK mainland which are not covered by these charges and we will be happy to quote for delivery. For these orders we charge for delivery at cost. Affected post codes of mainland addresses which incur a higher delivery charge include:
AB30-38, AB44-56, FK17-99, G83, IV1-28, IV30-39, IV52-54, IV63, KW1-14, PA21-33, PA34-40, PH18-26, PH30,
For larger orders of 50 metres+ please for pallet rates.
For some locations we can provide a same-day or guaranteed next day delivery on request and on payment of a delivery surcharge. If your requirement is urgent then please contact us and we will be happy to discuss options and costs.
For courier deliveries there will need to be someone at the delivery address to sign for the delivery. Please note that we will no longer give instructions to the courier to leave your delivery without a signature (e.g. " please leave the parcel in the shed"), although we will request that they try an identified neighbour if you ask for this (e.g. "If no answer, please try number 63"). This is for your and our security. If the courier is unable to complete the delivery and is unable to contact you they will return your order to us. If the tiles are returned and have to be re-sent there will be an additional delivery charge.
If you have any problems or concerns regarding your delivery please contact us ASAP - we can't help if we don't know!
Please note that time is not of the essence in our supply of goods to you.

It is 100% PCI DSS compliant and 3D secure (where you have signed up for either MasterCard Secure or Verified by Visa schemes). For online orders your credit card details are not passed to us. For telephone orders we enter your card details directly into the PSP secure website and keep no written or electronic records of your card details.
Your payment will be processed by Streamline. Streamline is the leading provider of merchant accounts in Europe and handles around half of all card transactions. It is part of the Royal Bank of Scotland group.
