Requirements of order

Artwork turnaround

We aim to turnaround any artwork as quickly as possible. However, please be aware that it may take up to 24 hours to generate an initial proof or create a reproof based on supplied corrections. Also, note that your allocated designer may change due to workload. If artwork is required at short notice please make the designer aware of this and we will do our best to accommodate.

Delivery Turnaround

Standard production turnaround, including delivery, is 5 working days after confirmation. Order confirmation after 11 am counts as the following working day. Confirmation consists of payment and proof form approval.

All orders are delivered via a courier and will require a signature upon delivery. All orders are fully insured by the courier or ourselves (Please note that once the delivery is signed for at your delivery address, the responsibility of ownership is then yours).

Confirmation of proof needs to be done by fax or email. Spoken confirmations are not accepted.

Express Service

Any express services must be confirmed by the office before being placed. There is an additional charge if an express service is required. This charge will depend on the product(s) ordered and the turnaround required. Please enquire or see our website for exact details.

Delivery charges are charged separately to express charges.

In the case of selected products this cost may be higher. Please let us know your requirement when placing the order and we will do our best to accommodate.

Delivery Costs

Standard delivery for products is £13.50 + VAT. Saturday delivery cost is £30 + VAT. Delivery cost may be higher on select products due to their size and/or weight.

Deliveries based outside UK mainland will be charged accordingly. Please email us for a quote. Delivery times may vary. We use Tuffnells, UPS and TNT to supply our delivery service. If they fail to deliver as specified, or if products are damaged or missing on arrival, please contact the courier directly. If you decide to change the delivery address after the product have been dispatched a cost will be incurred. Details relating to your consignment are available on request. If you wish your products to be insured with the courier, please let your designer know. We do not hold responsibility for products delivered late, lost or damaged in transit.

Consequential Loss

i4Media holds no responsibility for consequential loss due to products being faulty, delivered late or lost in transit.

Delivery to exhibitions

We use third party couriers (such as TNT, UPS and Tuffnells) to do our deliveries. In our experience when delivering to exhibitions there can be issues resulting from their security process and restricted access to the site(s). Because of this, on occasion, the courier will fail to make the delivery on the requested day. If this is the case i4Media holds no liability for any loss incurred and the goods in question will still be chargeable. We are happy to arrange for the goods to be redelivered to a UK mainland address, however, this may take several days after the original delivery date.

If delivery of the goods is essential we recommend getting in touch with our team to get a quote for a direct driver to take the goods from us directly to your event. This gives you much more flexibility and dramatically increases the chance of you receiving the goods on time. This service is charged additionally.
