On our website shop you will find gift vouchers with the values of £10, £15, and £20.
They all are virtual products which will be sent only to your email, with a unique number and the expiry date (exactly 1 year after the purchasing) after the email that confirms your full payment.
On our website shop you will also find complementary products available for purchase, to the main products made by us, that can be used alongside those main products e.g. long matches, or lighters (random colours).
This is a local ‘DROP-COLLECT’ service unless the buyer will cover the cost of the postage (return and outgoing) along with the cost of repair service and the estimated cost of repairing first.
This service is only possible for products made by Floral Flames, that are accidentally damaged or were incorrectly used.
The repair service depends on the level of damage and it is available after the agreement of both sides, like the collection of the product or charges of the repair.
The repair service includes:
-refilling larger candles (1-2 kg) up to 3/4 of the candle;
-covering internally broken, large candles by organza;
-painting naturally faded dry flowers with coloured wax and more (please ask).
Some of the seriously (but possible to be repaired) damages may require prepayment (after agreement).
The order of repair service must be sent via email email@example.com and have your name, address, email address, mobile number, receipt (or other payment confirmation) and a description of the problem and a picture of the damaged product (if possible).
We will send you a summary of your order with the order number and the cost of service and Bank details.
The cost of service can be paid via Bank Transfer if the repaired item is sent back via mail service or cash/card on the day of scheduled collection.
Unpaid services result in no goods being released, until the payment of repair service is made.
