Souvenirs Terms

The following terms and conditions constitute our Souvenirs Terms. If you wish to purchase any souvenir items you must agree to these terms.


Shipment processing times:  We ship from our office located in New Zealand. All Orders are processed within 5-10 business days. Orders are not shipped on weekends or holidays. If a product is a pre-order these timeframes do not apply. If we are experiencing a high volume of orders, shipments may be delayed by a few days. Please allow additional days in transit for delivery also. If there will be a significant delay in shipment of your order, We will contact you via email. 


Shipping rates & delivery estimates: All shipping costs are included in the listed prices of our products. The shipping is via NZ Post AirMail only. Generally to the USA, EU delivery is around 3-4 weeks. But you should allow up to 8 weeks before considering your order to be lost and contacting us. Once a package is shipped, shipping fees are non-refundable.


Shipment confirmation & order tracking: You will receive an order confirmation email once your order has been placed. You will receive another email when your order is shipped however tracking may not be provided at this time. All orders are AirMail tracked, meaning your order might not receive all tracking updates since it uses the mail system and is not couriered. In some locations tracking a New Zealand sent package may not be possible in your country, meaning you may not be able to track your order fully, this is out of our control. If tracking is important to you, contact us to upgrade to a fully tracked service. We receive a notification once your order is fully delivered, however since the order will physically be with you we don’t tend to share this update unless requested.


Customs, Duties and Taxes: We are not responsible for any customs and taxes applied to your order. All fees imposed during or after shipping are the responsibility of the customer (tariffs, taxes). Please consider this before ordering. If your order is returned to us we can not refund your shipping cost as we will be charged for the return shipping. To resend an order that was returned will incur an additional shipping fee.


Returns: You're welcome to return your order should you not be satisfied. Return shipping costs are the customers responsibility. The product must be returned in brand new condition to receive a refund. If your order is returned due to an error with your address or failing to collect your package, resending the order will require additional shipping fees to be paid by the customer. Alternatively we can refund the order minus the shipping since this would already have been used. 


Damaged/Lost order: Should your order arrived damaged or you think your order is lost (8+ weeks since shipped), please contact us, we will assist you. For damaged orders please save all packaging materials and damaged goods, send us multiple clear photos documenting the damage.


Warranty: No warranty is provided with clothing items once worn and/or washed by the customer. Any damage or faults to clothing items on arrival must be reported within 48 hours of delivery. A 30 day warranty is provided on paper based products (books, posters). All other products have a 1 year warranty. We reserve the right to fully or partially replace products before issuing a refund. Any warranty based return shipping costs are the customers responsibility. 


PO boxes: We can not ship to PO boxes. If you enter your address as a PO box we will refund and not ship your order. We can not hold stock while you correct your address.


Product availability: Your order is not confirmed or guaranteed until you receive a shipping notification email. Should your ordered product(s) not be in stock we are sorry, we will refund you.


Incorrect information: Should you provide incorrect information please let us know before your order is shipped. Changes to shipping addresses, sizes or order information is not possible once shipped.


Incorrect sizes: Should a clothing item not be the right size you can swap it or request a refund. Your order must be returned to us in brand new condition. Return shipping fees are to be paid by the customer. Should your order get lost or damaged while being returned to us no refund will be given.
