PRICES & PAYMENT
All prices are in Australian Dollars (AUD) and do not include Australian GST of 10%. As a small business we are not registered for GST, and GST will not be charged. Delivery charges are not included in the prices quoted. We accept payment by PayPal, Visa, Mastercard and direct deposits. Payment is taken at the time of placing your order. In the event that we cannot fulfil your order, payment is returned in full. As all orders are custom made, no refunds will be given for change of mind.
We can’t be held responsible for any delays in payment clearance and we can’t ship orders until we have received payment in full. We also can’t promise the availability of your desired stock if payment doesn’t clear or can’t be made for any reason.
You can arrange a custom order or large quantity order that is not listed on our website by getting in touch. Large custom orders require a 25% deposit to secure the order. This ensures Letters from Belle allots enough time to design and produce each custom order. Deposits are non-refundable if the order is cancelled within 8 weeks of the customer’s required date.
We have done our best to display as accurately as possible the colours of the products shown on this web site. However, because the colours you see will depend on your monitor, we cannot guarantee that your monitor’s display of any colour will be accurate.
Please double check your order before finalising the checkout, because once your order is confirmed, we’re unable to accept cancellations. We’ll be happy to assist you in any way we can in the selection of your items.

RETURNS, EXCHANGES AND REFUNDS
Letters from Belle cannot take any responsibility for lost or damaged mail once it has left our care. We also don’t offer refunds or exchanges on personalised and custom orders.
Lots of care goes into packaging orders for shipment, and each item is inspected thoroughly before it’s sent.
If your item arrives damaged please contact us within 48 hours with your order number and photographs and descriptions of the damage exactly as they have arrived to you. We’ll assess damage on a case-by-case basis, and it’s at our discretion to determine whether an item can be returned and replaced or repaired on the basis of damage. Furthermore, we’ll refuse a damaged return if you haven’t sent us an email notification and appropriate corresponding photographs within the specified time period after receiving your order.
Where repair or replacement is deemed necessary by our team, your initial item must be returned to us in an unused condition, including all original packaging. All return shipping costs are payable by the customer. We recommend that you carefully repackage your item to avoid any damage during delivery and consider using tracked or registered mail carrier to track your item for your own peace of mind.
Please retain proof of postage until we have confirmed your replacement has been processed.
We reserve the right to refuse returns if they don’t meet the conditions above.
Refunds and replacements will not be offered if the customer:
– simply changes their mind
– decides they do not like the purchase
– decides they have no use for it
– damages the goods by not handling carefully as per our Product Care, and/or mounting items securely to surfaces
Our personalised products are made-to-order according to each customer’s specifications, so changes and requests for returns or re-makes where the customer has made a personalisation error or simply changed their mind are not possible. We understand that these things happen sometimes though, and where we can, we’ll try to help out with an affordable solution if we receive notification within the time period specified above.
If your order is incorrect for any reason, please contact us within 48 hours with your order number and photographs and descriptions of what you have received.
