22/07/2014 - Delft Plate  

We have succeeded in finding an alternative supplier for the Delft Birth Plate. The artist is a former employee at the factory that produced the plate for so many years, but there are some subtle product diffences that are highlighted in the product desription.

We know that this is not a perfect solution, but it's one which continues to offer our customers an opportunity to make the Delft Birth Plate a gift for the future.

 

24/06/2014 - Delft Plates & Tiles  

It is with great regret that we must announce that the Delft Plate & Tile are no longer available. As many as possible of the outstanding orders will be manufactured, however there will be some customers that we will contact directly to discuss an alternative.

This matter is entirely outside of our control, since it is the Dutch manufacturer that will cease trading with almost immediate effect.

Please accept our apologies for any problems that you may have experienced over the last 2 weeksmost recent

There seems to have been a database problem that locked Page 1 of the Checkout process, which meant that we've been unable to process any orders on-line since the end of April...

We're now up & running again with systems restored, but please do not hesitate to contact us (+44 (0)1753 644365 between 9.30am & 5.30pm) if you continue to experience any difficulties.

We've now contacted all our suppliers, and we've published deadline dates on each individual product page - so please check them carefully before proceeding with your order. The earliest date is 10th December, so there's still plenty of time - but don't leave it too late!

It's also worth remembering that our personalised decorations are not just for one Christmas - they're for every Christmas!
