We will exchange bags if you have selected the wrong size as long as you have purchased standard colour combinations, *please check combinations below, but i am not responsible for postage costs.  Bags must be returned unused and packed the same way they were sent orginally.  I am not responsible for non stand size or colour orders.  Bags that are made in non standard colours are not able to be exchanged so please choose your colours carefully.

We will cover the cost of postage for returns if we are at fault. We will replace the bag or refund the sale if we have made a mistake with on order. If you have made a mistake with you order you need to email directly and immediately.  We will not take responisbility for postage costs on bag exchanges if we do not recieve notification prior to delivery.    We will not refund if the purchaser decides that they do no longer want the item and we will not pay postage on returns if you decide to change the size.

You can have a name put on the bag online with up to 12 characters on most bags.  If you want more than one line you need to purchase a second  or third line of embroidery under the embroidery menu. You may just have to put x's in the embroidery name box and then comment what you want embroidered on the side of the bag.

Logos can only be done as an off line order as it depends on what art work is required to convert your logo to stitches.  So the amount of time spent on converting the logo and the stitch count will then reflex in price variation.

While we try to match the colours of our cotton to online colour samples you will never get a true and extact match.  The best way to ensure that all your bags have the same lettering, fabric colour and embroidery cotton is to order them at the same time as a set.

If we believe that seems to be something not quite write with you choose of cotton colours and bag colours we will endeavour to contract you to check on your selection.  Eg dark cotton's on dark fabrics etc

Postage - Australia Post

Australia Post is the cheapest and sometimes the quickest way to send out orders.
Parcels are delievered directly to the post office in Morven. A $3 handling charge applies to cover the cost of packaging. Postage goes out at 2.30pm, and we work on having orders out within 1 to 3 working days.


 Registered Post 
Approximate rates $3 per parcel up to $100 and $1.15 per $100 or part thereof, in excess of $100 and up to $5000
You will need to state if you want to use registered post but could be subject to change with out warning. this charge doesn't.  These rates may increase may increase with Australia Post with out notice, but we do our best to keep them current.


Drop Off
I can arrange for drop off at the Morven Road House, but this needs to be arranged prior to making your order.


Express postage is also available, it is only any good for small orders.
The postage packs which are supplied via Australia post are only small. $11 express for 750gm ,$14.80 express 3kg  will carry up to an overnight, $24 express 5kg will carry 2 single saddles. It can be cheaper to use this method to send interstate.  I will up grade interstate orders to Express if they have paid standard postage and the order will fit into an express parcel.  These prices may change due to Australia Post price increases

This site is linked to Australia post to calculate postage.
