Terms & Conditions

Pricing & Payment

The price of any products will be as quoted on our site, except in cases of obvious error.  These prices include VAT.  Standard delivery cost is £4.95 to mainland UK locations.  International and non-mainland UK costs are stated at checkout.

Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you an order confirmation.

Design Proof Change Requests

Depending on the complexity, please note that any requests to alter your design proof may take a further 4 working days.

Free of Charge
The following change requests will not incur any additional costs:

– Colour change(s) to background or word colours.
– Word changes: We understand that after you have placed your order you might realize that you have missed out a word or two. We are happy to add up to three additional words to your design free of charge.

Charge per Change Request
The following change requests are likely to incur a £10 charge as these would constitute a full re-design:

– Font type change: much time is spent carefully arranging your words to create a well proportioned design. Changes to the font type affects word spacing and therefore a new design layout is required.
– Alteration of layout.

Please note that once you have signed-off your design proof via email we will not be able to make any further changes.

Gift Certificates

Gift certificates cannot be used or redeemed anywhere except online via the More Than Words website.

Gift certificates cannot be used or redeemed without the authorize claim code, cannot be redeemed for cash, cannot be replaced if they are lost or stolen, cannot be used or redeemed towards previous purchases, cannot be used or redeemed to purchase other gift certificates, cannot be resold, and are not refundable. No cash alternative is available.

Only one certificate code can be used per transaction. If you have more than one code you may place separate orders. Any purchase exceeding the value of a gift certificate code requires the use of a valid bank or credit card to complete the transaction.

More Than Words gift certificate will expire after 12 months from the date of its purchase. At the end of that period any unused balance on the card will be forfeited.

All other More Than Words terms and conditions apply. These terms and conditions are governed by the Laws of England and Wales and are subject to the jurisdiction of the English courts.

Risk & Title

The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery.


Please note we will not accept returns without prior agreement and will only accept returns due to damaged goods logged upon receipt and informed to the couriers. When you return a product to us we will process a replacement item as soon as possible.

We regret that personalised items cannot be refunded once a design proof has been approved. Once design work has been undertaken by a designer and approved by the customer, More Than Words will only refund 50% of the full price of the item.

If the customer chooses to cancel the order after receiving a design proof, we will provide a refund minus a £25 design fee for work already undertaken.

For unpersonalised prints, we will refund the price of the product in full, not including postage costs. You will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us. We will usually refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.

Some products are exempt from being returned or refunded. Anything that’s made to your specific requirements, is personalised or otherwise, can’t be resold due to a bespoke element and therefore cannot be returned or refunded.


If a customer wishes to supply us with an image to use in a design, it is the sole responsibility of the customer to ensure that any image that they present for transformation into a print is copyright free or that the copyright is owned by the customer themselves. We will take no responsibility for any breach of copyright caused through printing an image supplied by a customer.

All website design, text, graphic and designs of the prints and or products within the site are under strict copyright © More Than Words. You may not modify or replicate any item in any way without permission.

You are not permitted to copy (whether by printing off onto paper, storing on disk or in any other way), distribute (including distributing copies), alter or tamper with in any way or otherwise use any material contained in this website.

Colour Matching

Please note we will try our best to ensure the closest match possible, however images and designs may vary slightly from the ones viewed on your computer.  Once a design proof has been approved, and artwork produced, More Than Words will not offer a replacement if a colour does not fully match expectations.

Data Protection & Privacy

We value customer privacy, working on a non-disclosure basis, and do not pass on client information to third parties (except for the needs of product delivery). In order to process an order we have to collect your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number.  If you would prefer not to receive information from the More Than Words on promotions please email sales@morethanwords.uk.com.

We do retain the right to use images of your artwork as examples on the site. If you would not like you artwork displayed please contact us and we will remove it.
