Frequently asked questions


What if I receive a damaged or broken item?

We always ensure that plenty of packaging is used to avoid breakages and protect the products. Unfortunately there may be a very rare occasion when an item is damaged or broken upon receipt. If you receive an item that is not satisfactory please contact our customer service team at hello@tinkertailorgifts.com or 07732602313 with your order details and we will do everything possible to resolve the matter. We may ask that photographs of the damaged or broken item be emailed to us to avoid the item having to be sent back to us.

Where is my item?

All of our products are posted first class with Royal Mail. Non Custome Items will be posted out within 3-5 days. Customised items will take a little longer. You will be notified by email when your item has been shipped. Please contact us if you have any concerns.

So if you're not in when the delivery arrives, if there is somewhere safe and discreet for the parcel to be left (for instance with the doorman of a block of flats, or within a covered porch with an unlocked door), the driver will leave it for you. If there is no appropriate location, the driver will leave a card or attempt to redeliver on a subsequent day.
