7.1.1 Images of Goods and Bespoke Goods are for illustrative purposes only.

7.5 When placing an Order for Bespoke Goods, please ensure that all information that you provide to Us is correct, accurate, and complete.

We reserve the right to change prices and to add, alter, or remove special offers from time to time and as necessary.

Changes in price will not affect any order that you have already placed (please note sub-Clause 8.12 regarding VAT, however).
