All orders are shipped from the UK. Any additional charges for customs clearance into other countries must be borne by you. We have no control over these charges and unfortunately can't predict what they might be.
All deliveries will be made according to the carriers’ standard procedures. For standard delivery, a signature should not be required. However, packages which will not fit through your letter box may be taken back to the postal depot for collection. Please note that where a signature is required, orders cannot be sent to PO box addresses.
Should you require clarification on what happens if no-one is available to receive the goods, and/or a signature is required, please contact the carrier direct.
We offer a 100% guarantee that if you’re in any way dissatisfied with the goods you have ordered, we will exchange them or give you a full refund for the items*, provided that you return them to us in their original condition.
•Delivery charges will not be refunded in the case of a return. However, should you request replacements for returned items, you will not be charged again for delivery. All replacement items are shipped via standard delivery. Express delivery of replacements may be requested at the time of return and the difference will be charged to your card. We reserve the right to refuse returns of items where it is apparent that this has not been done.
If you wish to return goods to us, please notify us of the return with all the required details such as invoice number, contact name etc to firstname.lastname@example.org. A member of the team will be in contact. In this case please return with a copy of the invoice.

6 days should be allowed for postage, so please make sure your item is posted within 8 days of receipt. You'll need to pay return postage for all orders sent outside the UK. Please mark your package clearly as 'RETURNED GOODS' to avoid delays at customs. We suggest you use an insured, traceable shipping method and keep your shipping documentation so that you can make a claim with the carrier if it gets lost. We will send you an email to let you know when your return has been received.
Please note you will be charged for the shipping cost. Once the return is made you will have the payment credited back to the original card minus the shipping cost. If you are a school which has been invoiced, you will be re invoiced for the shipping cost.
In all cases, your proof of postage should show the ASD Visual Aids Ltd address to which you have returned the goods, together with the post office’s printed/stamped confirmation of the date of posting.
We will let you know as soon as we receive the goods, and will then endeavour to process your request for either a refund or replacement as quickly as possible. Please allow up to 20 days from receipt of your return for this to be done.
If no return instructions are enclosed with your return, we will automatically issue a refund for the returned items.
If you have requested a refund, replacements of a lower value than the returned goods, or no return instructions are specified, any refund due will be credited back to the card used to pay for the original order. We will let you know as soon as the refund has been processed. Please note that we are unable to offer vouchers.
If you have requested replacements of a higher value, any difference due will be charged to the card used to pay for the original order or invoice (schools only). Please note that, on orders paid for with only a voucher we are unable to process replacements of a higher value than is available on the voucher. In these circumstances, you should request a refund for the returned goods. Once this refund has been processed to your gift card you will then be able to use the balance to place a new order, giving your additional payment details for any extra balance on the order form.
