Natural Edge Framing and Photography Terms and Conditions

terms and conditions

Natural Edge Framing and Photography takes great pride in its commitment to customer satisfaction. We invite you to read our Terms and Conditions to get the most out of your experience with us.

Every effort is made to replicate frames, as close as possible, to those as shown on our website.

Frames constructed with prefabricated mouldings as shown on our web site can be replicated.  Straight edge timber frames as seen on our web site can also be replicated albeit with their own unique grain intact.

Bark edge frames are the exception.  Native timbers come with the beauty of variation, however, it is this difference that gives our frames their appeal.  While we will use timbers as requested, the exact look of a bark edge frame as seen on our web site or social media pages can not be achieved.  Our bark edge frames will vary due to the unique irregularities of each timber length used.  As a result our bark edge frames will always look different to other bark edge frames made with the same timber as seen on our web site.

Timber Availability:

The timber species as presented on our web site are available while stocks are in place.  At times, however, we can not guarantee consistent stocks due to certain circumstances.  Events such as bush fire, moratoriums on logging, mill closures, diseases and COVID19 restrictions can limit availability.

Additional circumstances are beyond our control so please note that we cannot be responsible for:

  • Spelling, punctuation or grammatical errors made by the customer.
  • Inferior quality or low-resolution of uploaded images or printed photographs.
  • Damage to the products arising after delivery to the customer.
  • Colour matching what you see on your monitor.  To achieve the best results we use professional third party photo labs to match the colour as perceived in a photo file. We employed these labs because of their reliable and correctly calibrated photo printers. If you need to see colour proofs please email for pricing and time frames.

 

Terms and Conditions – What we guarantee

Natural Edge Framing and Photography automatically offers the following guarantees as stated under the Australian Consumer Law (ACL).  Please note, this is different to a warranty.  This is a voluntary promise of repair offered by a business who sell goods and services to you, or who made the goods. We do not offer a warranty on products at this point in time.

As a consumer you have guarantees regardless of any warranty provided by the supplier or manufacturer.  What we guarantee:

  • Products of acceptable quality, condition and sturdiness;
  • Items matching the description as agreed upon;
  • Goods that are fit for their disclosed purpose;
  • Products that come with a right to undisturbed possession.

 

Natural Edge Framing and Photography is also an ethical business. We follow all current legislated regulations as set down within the Western Australian DBCA Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016 and Regulations 2018.  We also comply with regulations as set out in the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment Biosecurity Act 2015.  As a result you can be assured all materials used in our products are sourced responsibly.

In the event of any failure of expectation, however, we will offer to replace your product or provide a refund in a genuine effort to remedy the situation.

 

Terms of Purchase and Returns Policy

We request a 40% deposit to be paid prior to the commencement of work. The balance is to be paid in full prior to delivery.  Additionally, where custom made products were supplied correctly, we are unable to offer an exchange or refund.  Furthermore, if work on a custom made product has commenced we will be unable to cancel the order or refund your deposit.

Postage and Freight

  • Please note: under our Terms and Conditions initial quotes for postage and freight are not final; they are estimates only.  Final freight costs are made after the product is complete and packaged. This allows for full measurements and known weight.
  • After handing over products to postal and shipping agents we will not be liable for any consequential loss for the following reasons.  These include, as a result of incorrect supply, late delivery, accidental misrepresentation or any other reason, whether avoidable or not.
  • The COVID pandemic has increased demand on postal and shipping services.  We can not guarantee delivery times.
  • Please keep all the packaging material until you are satisfied with the product. If your items are faulty or damaged in transit please contact us ASAP.  We will undertake reparation with shipping agents to establish cause if your item has been damaged.  If a product needs to be returned though we will arrange this at our expense.  Please keep the original packaging with the product when returning.  Once received we will replace the product at no charge to you.

We are a very caring business and go to great lengths to ensure your items are delivered to you in perfect condition. If a mishap occurs, we will do our best to resolve the matter to ensure you are totally satisfied with your purchase.
