We’re are an easy-going bunch, so our T&Cs are as simple as possible.
Let’s be honest they can be a bit of a drag, but there is no way around it! 

To be able to deliver to you our best work, products and services possible,
we have put together a set of rules that works for both of us.

Oh, and when we say confirmed in writing* we really mean by email, we know no one writes letters anymore!

All quotes sent are valid for 2 weeks from the date sent. 

The Buyer shall ensure that the terms of their order and any specifications are complete and
accurate before accepting a quotation.

No order placed by the Buyer shall be deemed accepted by Us until confirmed in writing*.

A confirmed Order may only be cancelled or varied with Our consent. However, giving consent will not remove Our right to recover from You full compensation (including profit) if applicable, for any loss or expense arising from the cancellation or variation of the original order.



We reserve the right to vary the price of Goods and any other Services we provide.
All prices for Our Goods and Services are quoted exclusive of taxes and duty unless otherwise stated. 

The Customer accepts that all Goods and Services will be invoiced at the price ruling on the date of dispatch. 


The price for Goods & Services will be the prices set at the time that the order is confirmed.
However, We do retain the right to vary the price payable for the Goods or Services between the date of order and the date of despatch. If the price increase is to be more than 15% on the original price agreed. The Buyer will have the option to cancel the order unless the Goods have been customised and/or ordered for the Buyer
in which case the right to cancel shall not arise.


If the Buyer is to pay in a currency other than in UK Pound sterling, we will calculate the price using the currency exchange rate of Our bank at the time that the order is made.


Delivery & Installation

Unless otherwise agreed by Us in writing*, the Delivery Point for all Customer Orders will be our office.
Collections are Monday to Friday between 9.00am and 5pm, unless otherwise agreed.


If the Buyer wishes the Delivery Point to be anywhere other than Our office, the Buyer must request an alternative Delivery Point and pay the appropriate delivery charges, if applicable.


The Buyer shall take delivery of Goods within 7 days of Us giving notice that they are ready unless otherwise agreed.


Any dates specified by Us for delivery of Goods (including making them available for collection) are an estimate only, on which the Buyer relies entirely at their own risk. Time for delivery shall not be, and shall not be capable of being made by notice, of the essence. If no dates are specified, delivery shall be within a reasonable time with Our view being final as to what constitutes reasonable.


We will always endeavour to deliver Your Goods on the required date, but we cannot guarantee to do so.
We shall, under no circumstances whatsoever, be liable to the Customer for any loss, damage or expenses, whether caused directly or indirectly, by any delay in the delivery of Your Goods. No proposed delivery date  shall entitle the Buyer to terminate or cancel the Order unless 180 days has passed from the estimated delivery date.


Where the Buyer has requested that Goods be delivered to the Delivery Point by post, We shall not be liable for any non or late delivery. Unless the reason is an error by Us in sending the Goods to an incorrect address.


If for any reason the Buyer fails to accept delivery of the Goods when they are ready, or We are unable to deliver the Goods because the Buyer has not provided appropriate instructions;

COBO may deliver Goods by separate instalments. Each separate instalment shall be invoiced and paid for in accordance with the provisions of Our Terms & Conditions. Each instalment shall be considered a separate Order and no cancellation or termination of any one Order relating to the instalment shall entitle the Buyer to reject or cancel any other Order or instalment(s).


If the Delivery Point is to be outside the UK;

The Buyer shall obtain all necessary import licences, clearances and other consents necessary for the purchase of the Goods.

The Buyer must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the products are destined. COBO will not be liable for any breach by the Buyer of any such laws.

The period when such payment must be made in order to qualify as ‘prompt’ will also be agreed between Us and the Customer. If the payment is not made promptly, We shall be entitled to be paid the full amount excluding the discount and in-line with our payment terms



COBO acknowledges that We may receive or have access to information which relates to the Customers past, present, or future products, vendor lists, creative works, marketing strategies, pending projects/proposals, and other proprietary information. COBO agrees to protect the confidentiality of the Customers proprietary information and all physical forms thereof. 


Unless strict confidentiality is requested by the Customer in advance of the commencement of any work, We reserve the right to display materials and any work created, regardless of stage of completion on our website, social media platforms and anywhere else We deem appropriate.


Copyrights and Trademarks

By supplying text, images, fonts and other data to COBO, the Customer declares that they hold the appropriate copyright, usage rights or trademark permissions. The ownership of such materials will remain with the customer, the rightful copyright or trademark owner. The Customer agrees to fully indemnify and hold COBO free from harm in any and all claims resulting from the customer not having obtained all the required copyright, usage rights or trademark permissions required.


The Customer is responsible for arranging any necessary legal clearance of materials COBO supplies. We will not be held liable for any legal infringements as a result of artwork being distributed or published.


Any artwork, images, text or designs created by COBO on behalf of the Customer, will remain Our property unless otherwise agreed in writing*. A licence for use of this copyright material is granted to the Customer solely for the project in question and not for any other purpose.


The Customer may request from Us, the necessary permission to use materials (for which COBO holds the copyright) in forms other than for which it was originally supplied. We may, at Our discretion, grant this. We reserve the right to charge for this additional usage. Such permission must be obtained in writing* before any artwork, images, text, or other data owned by Us is used.


Source Files

We will supply proofs and PDF files as appropriate for printing, or other graphic files as detailed in the job brief or request. Charges for design work do not cover the release of our copyright design source files, including but not restricted to Indd, psd, AI, png, fla or other source files or raw code. If the Customer requires these files for transfer to an in-house or other designer, this may be subject to a separate quotation or ‘buy-out’ charge.


Artwork Approval, Errors And Omissions

We will take all reasonable care to check proofs carefully for accuracy. Where copy, technical drawings, data or any other documents have been supplied by the Customer these will not be checked. It is considered the responsibility of The Customer to check all artwork carefully before final sign off . As a result, COBO is not liable for loss, expense or damage caused by any act or omission following approval.

Approval of Textile Goods & Signage

All Artwork to be approved will be transferred on to a  template depicting the size and positioning of front, rear and side views where appropriate. The Customer will be required to provide a thorough check including, (but not limited to) size positioning and spelling prior to any further work taking place. We will produce your goods to match Your approved proof.  COBO cannot be held responsible for any errors which are identified in the Artwork after the Customer has given their approval. 


Garments and Textiles

Absolute consistency of sizes (which are approximate “to fit” sizes, supplied by the manufacturer), materials, proportions, colours and shades are not guaranteed and are given as guidance only.

Decoration positioning may vary between garments and exact positioning cannot be guaranteed. Where large prints are placed on smaller shirts We cannot guarantee complete straight print lines on these garments, this is due to the garments being removed from the platen and can usually be pulled back into shape. 


On occasions repeat orders may find that the garment, ink or vinyl colour is slightly different to the previous order.  Due to the nature of this kind of production COBO cannot be held liable for these fluctuations.


We always recommend that all Goods are checked for their suitability of purpose to any application. Due to variances in screen resolutions & colour profiles. Colour icons and material finishes should not be considered a true representation of their appearance. In the event confusion occurs with garments, textiles, colours or finish, COBO will not be held responsible for any losses incurred.  Where possible we will always try to provide samples of garments in advance of orders being placed, There may be an additional charge to the customer for this Service. 


All textile Goods must be washed and cleaned strictly in accordance with the washing label instructions attached to the Goods. If the product produced for the Customer has any care specifications contrary to the labels washing instructions, COBO will inform the customer in writing*.


Inks, vinyl’s and textiles used during the printing process will inevitably fade over time. The speed at which they fade will be dependent on many factors including washing temperature, number of washes, exposure to sunlight etc. Therefore COBO cannot be held responsible for fading colour(s). Especially if the garment care instructions have not been properly followed. 


Customer Supplied Garments or Textiles

All garments supplied by Us have undergone rigorous testing for their stability throughout the production process as well as their overall quality. However, We cannot be held responsible for damage or loss which occurs to garments which have been supplied by the customer. Examples of damage may include, but not be limited to, the garments changing colour or shape due to heat, damage caused by machinery used in the production process ink/vinyl adhesion or colour representation.


Other Terms

Each of the paragraphs of these Terms & Conditions operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs remain in full force and effect.
These Terms & Conditions between COBO and it's Customers shall be governed by the laws of
England and Wales. Any disputes arising shall be the subject to the jurisdiction of the English courts. 



We reserve the right to change or amend any part of these Terms & Conditions. Of course, if any change is significant We will notify You of the change. COBO has complete discretion to modify or remove any of the Products or Services We provide without warning or liability arising from such action.
