Terms & Conditions


These terms apply in respect of sales of bound books ("Goods") as determined by Hobbs the Printers Ltd ("the Supplier"). The Goods are intended for business / commercial users only. "Customers" are defined as purchasers of non-subscription Goods.

Goods supplied may differ from those advertised in the Supplier's catalogue or other promotional material. Such differences will not materially alter the Goods. These terms and conditions will be interpreted in accordance with the Laws of England and Wales.


The Supplier reserves the right to change the contents and/or price and/or delivery charges of any Goods at any time without prior notification - if this results from reasons beyond its control. The Supplier will, however, use its best endeavours to notify customers. The price payable shall be the total price specified in the Supplier’s current price list, less any discounts agreed in advance by the Supplier and plus the applicable cost of packaging, postage and delivery ("Delivery Charges") and VAT at the current rate.


Orders are accepted by the Supplier subject to availability of stock and may be delivered in two or more instalments. The Supplier has no liability for any loss of trade or profit to the customer as a result of delay in delivery or delivery of incorrect or faulty goods.

Delivery will be made to the address specified on the order by the customer or its agent, or to a carrier designated by the customer, or to other such addresses as are notified to the Supplier from time to time.

Orders will be despatched within ten working days unless alternative delivery arrangements are agreed between the Supplier and the customer.

Claims for damaged Goods or partial delivery or complete loss of consignment must be notified within 28 days of the date of invoice. The Customer's refund will be processed and returned to the Customer using the same purchase method used to acquire the Goods.

Return policy

Goods ordered from the site do not include a Trial period and can only be bought on a non-return basis.

Intellectual Property

All copyright and other intellectual property rights in the Goods vest in the Supplier unless expressly stated in the Goods that the copyright belongs to a third party. The Customer's purchase of the Goods does not operate to give the Customer any intellectual property rights in the Goods.

The Customer shall not engage in any unauthorised use, copying or distribution of the information in the Goods. The Customer has a personal, non-transferable and non-exclusive license to use the Goods.


Great care has been taken in the compilation and preparation of the Goods to ensure accuracy and the Supplier will make every endeavour to remedy any errors or attributable omissions. The Supplier does not warrant that the information contained in the Goods is accurate or complete. The Customer accepts that it is his responsibility to ensure that the Goods are appropriate and fit for his purpose(s). The Supplier gives no warranty, express or implied with regard to quality, condition or fitness for purpose. The Supplier's entire liability and the Customer's exclusive remedy, shall be the replacement of the Goods. In no event will the Supplier be liable for damages of any kind, direct, indirect or consequential (including, but not limited to, loss of profits) however arising, even if the Supplier has been advised of the possibility of such damage. Time is not of the essence for delivery of Goods and the Supplier's liability for incorrect delivery or failure to deliver is limited to the replacement of Goods. Nothing in this clause shall exclude the Supplier's liability for death or personal injury, for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.


Products ordered from the site can only be paid for via credit / debit card or in response to an invoice.

Credit card or debit card transactions will be processed immediately through the HSBC payment service.

Payment for proforma invoices is due within thirty days of the issue of the proforma invoice, in the currency of the invoice. These invoices should be paid:

  • by cheque drawn on a UK based bank, made payable to Hobbs the Printers Ltd;
  • or by BACS payments to our bank account. BACS payments should be made directly to our bank account, details of which will be supplied on request.

Failure to pay all outstanding amounts by the due date will result in the order being cancelled. Goods will be despatched once payments have been cleared for the order.
