2. Our contract with you

2.4 Your copy. Please print a copy of these Terms or save them to your computer for future reference.

3. Placing an order and its acceptance

3.1 Placing your order. Please follow the onscreen prompts when you place an order. Each order you place represents an offer by you to buy the goods specified in the order subject to these Terms.

3.2 Correcting input errors. Our order process makes it easy for you to check and amend any errors before you submit your order to us. Please check your order carefully before confirming it as you are responsible for ensuring your order and any specifications you submit with it are complete and accurate.

3.3 Acknowledging receipt and acceptance of your order. When you place an order, you’ll receive an email from us acknowledging receipt. Our acceptance of your order takes place when we send the email for you to accept it, at which point the Contract between you and us starts.

3.4 If we cannot accept your order. If we’re unable to supply you with the goods for any reason, we’ll notify you by email and we won’t process your order. If you’ve already paid for the goods you ordered, we’ll refund you the full amount including any delivery costs you were charged for as soon as possible.

4. Our goods

4.1 The images of the goods on our site are for illustrative purposes only. Although we make every effort to display colours of our products accurately, we can’t guarantee that your computer's display will accurately reflect the colour of the goods. The colour of your goods may therefore vary slightly from the images on screen.

4.2 We'll take all reasonable care to be as accurate as possible with our descriptions, in fact all sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements indicated on our website have a 2% tolerance. Although we aim to keep the website as up to date as possible, the information displayed may not always reflect the exact position at the moment you place your order.

4.3 The packaging of your goods may look different to the images displayed on our site.

4.4 We reserve the right to amend the specification of the Goods if required by any relevant statutory or regulatory requirement.

5. Returns and refunds

5.1 You can cancel the Contract and receive a refund as long as you notify us as we’ve set out in clause 5.3 within seven days of your decision to cancel the Contract. OR within 48 hours of playing your order or within seven days of receiving your order.

5.2 However, this cancellation right does not apply to bespoke branded goods that have been customised to your requirements.

5.3 To cancel the Contract, you must email us at or contact our Customer Services team by telephone on 01784 438688 or by post to Customer Services Manager, Unit 3, Egham Business Village, Egham, Surrey, TW20 8RG. If you’re emailing us or writing to us please include the details of your order to help us identify it. If you send us your cancellation notice by email or by post, your cancellation will be effective from the date you send us the email or post the letter to us. For example, you will have given us notice in time as long as you get your letter into the last post on the last day of the cancellation period or email us before midnight on that day.

5.4 If you’re returning goods to us under this clause (5) because they’re faulty or mis-described, we’ll refund the price of the goods back to the credit card or debit card you used to pay for them.

5.5 If goods have been delivered to you before you decide to cancel the Contract then you must return them to us without undue delay – certainly no later than 14 days after the day you tell us you want to cancel the Contract. You can either send them back or hand them to our authorised carrier. Please use the pre-printed returns labels supplied on your delivery note and contact us (see 5.3) to arrange collection.

6. Delivery, transfer of risk and title

6.1 From the receipt of your order and payment of it in full, we aim to deliver it within seven working days, stock permitting. Occasionally, our delivery to you may be affected by an event that’s beyond our control. See clause 14 (‘Events outside our control’) for more information about our responsibilities when this happens.

6.2 Delivery is complete once the Goods have been unloaded at the delivery address set out in your order – the goods will be your responsibility from that time.

6.3 You'll own the Goods once we've received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.

6.4 If we fail to deliver the Goods, our liability is limited to the cost of obtaining replacement goods of a similar description and quality in the most competitive market available, less the price of the goods. However, we won’t be liable to the extent that any failure to deliver was caused by an event outside our control (see 14) or because you didn’t provide adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that were relevant to the supply of goods or because you provided an inadequate, inaccurate or misleading specification of the goods.

6.5 If you fail to take delivery within 10 days from the day we notified you that the goods were ready for delivery, we may resell part of or all them. Bespoke goods manufactured to your specification will still be chargeable.

7. International delivery

7.1 We deliver to the following International destinations: Europe, USA, Canada, Australia & New Zealand.

7.2 If You order goods from our website for delivery outside the UK, they may be subject to import duties and taxes which are levied when the delivery reaches the specified destination and you’ll be responsible for payment of these charges. Please note we have no control over these charges and can’t predict the amounts involved. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.

7.3 You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the goods are destined; we can't be held liable for any breach by you of any such laws.

8. Price of goods and delivery charges

8.1 The prices of the goods will be as quoted on our website at the time you submit your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure the prices of goods are correct when the information was entered onto our system. However, please see clause 8.5 to find out what happens if we discover an error in the price of goods you ordered.

8.2 Prices for our goods may change from time to time, but no changes will affect an order you’ve already placed.

8.3 The price of goods excludes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we’ll adjust the VAT you pay, unless you’ve already paid for the goods in full before the change in VAT takes effect.

8.4 The price of the goods shown on the website doesn’t include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are quoted to you during the check-out process, before you confirm your order. Please refer to our Delivery Charges page at for more information.

8.5 We sell a large number of goods through our website and it’s always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the goods online may be incorrectly priced. Normally we’ll check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that:

(a) where the correct price for the goods' is less than the price stated on our site, we’ll charge the lower amount when dispatching the goods to you; and

(b) if the correct price for the goods' is higher than the price stated on our site, we’ll contact you as soon as possible to tell you about the error and give you the option of purchasing the goods at the correct price or cancelling your order. We won’t process your order until we have your instructions. If we’re unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we’ll treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing. However, if we mistakenly accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have been as mispricing, we may cancel the supply of the goods and refund you any money you’ve paid.

9. How to pay

9.1 You can only pay for goods ordered on the website by using a debit card or credit card; we accept VISA, VISA Electron and MASTERCARD.

9.2 Payment for the goods and delivery charges must be made in advance and we’ll charge your credit or debit card when you complete your order.

9.3 The Inland Revenue accepts we’re not associated with the building industry, so we’re not within the province of the construction industry tax deduction scheme, as detailed in Appendix B of publication IR14/15 (CIS). This means there’s no restriction on us being paid in full without deducting tax.

17.7 WEEE Compliance The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations were introduced to the UK in 2007 to try to reduce the amount of Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE) ending up in landfill by encouraging its reuse, recycling and recovery. Electrical and Electronic equipment is any product that relies on electricity or batteries to perform its primary function, for example, an illuminated Fire Exit sign. Since Signbox is a producer of EEE, as per the requirements of the regulations, we’re committed to financing the recovery and recycling of WEEE when it reaches the end of its life.

Signbox products covered by the WEEE Regulations carry a crossed-out wheelie bin symbol on either the product itself or its packaging. This symbol should encourage you to dispose of the product separately to other household waste when it reaches the end of its life. To find more information on WEEE recycling and, to locate your nearest recycling centre, please visit the Recycle More website at
