Export Restrictions

A UK Government export licence may be required for some items to some destinations. If the item you require needs a special export licence or an end-use statement we will inform you at the time you order.

Materials Handling

Many of our materials are extremely delicate and it is essential every care is taken when handling them. Special attention is drawn to the extreme fragility of Microfoil, Microleaf and thinner and finer materials.

All materials are carefully packed to ensure safe transport of goods to your address. We do not accept responsibility for damage caused by mishandling once the outer transit packaging has been removed.
