Every effort is made to display the prices accurately, however, if the rare occasion of a error in pricing occurs, SC Lloyd Designs will correct the error and inform the customer so that they can decide whether to continue with the order at the correct price.
We do not accept international orders at this time.
Some of our products may contain small parts that could become detached. Our products are not suitable for small children and SC Lloyd Designs will not be held responsible in the case of an accident or mishap with regard to such products.
Cancellations & Returns
As our stationery, some accessory items, and business projects are personalised to clients individual requirements, SC Lloyd Designs is unable to refund, exchange, or replace delivered goods unless they have been found to be faulty or does not meet the specifications of your order. This does not affect your statutory rights.
In the event of a cancellation the following will apply:
Non-personalised wedding and bridal accessories can be returned for a full refund (less postage & packing costs) within 7 days of receipt by the client, and after 7 days all sales are final.
In the unlikely event that an error has occurred on the part of SC Lloyd Designs, please contact us immediately, but no later than 7 days after receipt, in order that the problem can be rectified at our cost, after which time SC Lloyd Designs is not obligated to replace or reimburse the client and cannot be held liable. Settlements in the form of replacement items or reprinted stationery will be returned to the client at SC Lloyd Designs’ cost. SC Lloyd Designs will require that the item(s) in question be returned together with written clarification of any faults or damage, or in some cases as deemed by SC Lloyd Designs, a photograph showing the fault or damage will suffice. Postage for the return of the faulty item(s) will be reimbursed to the client only when it is established that the fault lies with SC Lloyd Designs. Settlements in the form of a refund will be limited to the invoice price of the defective goods and will in no way extend to consequential loss, howsoever caused.
All bespoke designs are the property of SC Lloyd Designs and may only be printed through SC Lloyd Designs. All bespoke designs may be incorporated into the main range of SC Lloyd Designs at any time.

All measurements quoted are approximate. Appearance of colours may vary on photos shown in our brochures and on the website due to differences in computer monitors and printers, therefore please provide samples if specific colours are required.
Because of printing methods, printed stationery that is produced in more than one batch/order may not match exactly and there may be very slight variations in colour. Seating Plans are printed on a large format printer (different to the printer used for other stationery items) and as such, this may also cause very slight colour variations from the rest of the stationery. This is not a compromise of quality and is always kept to a minimum.

All stationery designs (includes the actual designs, images of the designs, and the final product), as well as all material (including content, images, and text) on the website at sclloyddesigns.co.uk are the copyright of SC Lloyd Designs and any unauthorized use or reproduction without prior consent is strictly prohibited. Legal action will be taken in the event of breach of copyright. All designs, artwork, and bespoke designs created for the client will remain the copyright of SC Lloyd Designs.
It is the client’s responsibility to obtain copyright permission for hymns, poems, and readings. The fee for copyright permission must be paid to the copyright owner, and is usually between £10 to £30. Some hymns are still under copyright and do require permission for the hymn to be printed, and the copyright for some of the older hymns no longer exists. Most churches hold a Church Copyright License in which case the fees may be waived, however this should be discussed with the vicar or priest to avoid copyright infringement. In the case of a civil wedding or civil partnership, copyright for poems and readings should be discussed with the registrar. SC Lloyd Designs does not accept any responsibility for obtaining copyright permission.
Any dispute, claims or proceedings of any nature between SC Lloyd Designs and the customer in connection with or arising out of the validity, construction or performance of this Agreement shall be subject to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of The High Court of England and Wales, to which both parties irrevocably submit. These terms and conditions do not affect your statutory rights.
SC Lloyd Designs reserves the right to change these Terms & Conditions at any time without notice.
