Ordering from us
You are deemed to place an order with us by ordering via our online checkout process. We will send you an order acknowledgement by email, detailing the products you have ordered.
Our acceptance of an order takes place when we despatch the order. When we despatch the order the purchase contract will be made even if your payment has been processed immediately, unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled your order.
Please note that we reserve the right to brand our personalised products.
We may refuse to accept an order:
(a) Where goods are not available
(b) Where we cannot obtain authorisation for your payment
(c) If there has been a pricing or product description error
(d) If you do not meet any eligibility criteria set out in our terms and conditions
(e) If the order is to be delivered outside of the United Kingdom. .
(f) If your order for personalised products contains content which is threatening, defamatory, obscene, indecent, seditious, offensive, pornographic, abusive, liable to incite racial hatred, discriminatory, menacing, scandalous, inflammatory, blasphemous, in breach of confidence, in breach of privacy or which may cause annoyance or inconvenience.
(g) If we believe your order is for commercial or other non-domestic concerns.
All prices include VAT (where applicable) at the current rates. We reserve the right to express the price exclusive of VAT, but we shall show VAT separately and include it in the total price.
Where we charge separately for packing, carriage and insurance and other relevant charges, the appropriate rates are set out in our specified pricing structure shown elsewhere on this Website.
We will deliver the Products ordered by you to the address which you give for delivery when you make your order. If any of the details you have given us in your delivery address are incorrect, we are not liable for any items which have not been received.
You may specify a delivery address which is different from your billing address, if, for example, you would like us to deliver the Products directly to a friend, a relative, or to your place of work.
As all our cookies are made & decorated to order, we will usually require 1-2 days to prepare your order (and prefer 1 weeks notice for orders over 50 cookies and 2 weeks notice for orders of 750 or more). If your request is more urgent please contact us and we'll try to accommodate where possible.
Rest assured all our cookies are extremely well packaged and breakage is very unlikely. However, for larger orders (in particular functions & wedding favour cookies) we’ll include some extras free of charge just to put your mind at rest.
Custom Cookie Company can despatch orders everyday except Sundays
Unfortunately Custom Cookie Company cannot guarantee that delivery instructions provided to us will be carried out and are not liable for any errors made by Royal Mail or courier companies and can't be held liable for delays in delivery or lost or damaged parcels.
We offer several shipping methods:
Standard 1st Class - despatched in 1-3 working days (unless a later date is requested), sent via 1st class Royal Mail who aim to deliver in 1-3 days. In our experience about 90% of 1st class mail arrives the day after dispatch, about 8% arrives in 2-3 days and the rest can take up to 5 days, or is occasionally lost in the post. Standard 1st class mail it is the most economical but is not the most reliable. We retain proof of postage but the delivery is neither tracked nor guaranteed.
1st Class Recorded - dispatched in 1-3 working days (unless a later date is requested), sent via Royal Mail 1st Class recorded service. This option is the same as 1st class mail (see above) but this service is Tracked and a signature is required on delivery. We have found this service to me more reliable than std 1st class with almost zero parcels being 'lost in the post'.
Special Delivery - despatched in 1-3 working days (unless a later date is requested) and guaranteed by 1pm the next working day. The safest and most cost effective option for small parcels.
Saturday Special Delivery - Guaranteed Saturday delivery for parcels posted on Friday (orders for Saturday Special must be received by end of day on a Wednesday so that we can decorate your order on Thursday, allow it to dry, and package & despatch on Friday)
Courier Delivery - Generally the most cost effective for orders over 1kg or orders spread over several packages. Despatched in 1-7 working days and guaranteed delivery by the end of the next working day to most UK destinations.
If you wish to cancel your order you can notify us by contacting us through the website or by telephone (0161 947 5900 ). As we make all cookies to order, this must be before your cookies have been baked.
Please note: In order to provide a fast service some products are immediately sent for production. Please check your order on screen and the confirmation email carefully as we cannot refund products which have been miss-spelt.
We reserve the right to cancel your order at any time and issue a full refund.
The provisions of this clause do not affect your statutory rights.
Returns and exchange
If you are not completely satisfied with your cookies, simply return them to us at any time within 14 working days of receipt. The costs of returning goods to us shall be borne by you. unfortunately we are unable to refund postage costs on unwanted non-personalised items.
The item is your responsibility until it reaches us. For your own protection, we recommend that you send the parcel back to using a delivery service that insures you for the value of the goods as we cannot be held responsible for items damaged or lost in the post.
Your rights to return the goods to us will not apply in the following circumstances:

- A perishable item that has been consumed/disposed of.
If you return an item because it is damaged, or because it is defective, we will happily refund the full value of the item. We wiill request a photo to show the damage/ issue before a refund is issued.
The item(s) must be returned in the condition in which you received it within 30 days of delivery. By the very individual nature of personalised products, they cannot be re-sold, and therefore we cannot accept returns if you have a change of mind.
We regret that postage and packing costs for unwanted items cannot be refunded after 7 working days from when the order was delivered.
• You have a duty to return the item to us and the cost of doing so is your responsibility, except if the item is faulty or does not comply with the contract.
• The parcel can take up to 7 working days to be returned to us, unless sent via special delivery.
This returns policy does not affect your statutory rights.
If a discount was applied to your original order, the amount refunded will be adjusted to allow for the revised order value and appropriate discount level. Please note you can only use one discount code per order.
