Shipping & Returns Policy

Delivery Rates, Times & Returns

  • For South African delivery we use a courier service Business Express (BEX), and for International delivery we use DHL (for international orders, the onus is on the client to determine and cover any fees or taxes payable on their stationery, upon entry into the destination country. Dreamstone Printing & Design is not liable nor has any responsibility to determine or disclose such fees).
  • The product delivery timeline is an estimate and the arrival date/time is based on the lead times of the product(s). We generally aim to get your order to you within 2-3 weeks, however the lead times on the products selected and quantities required will give you a more accurate idea of the delivery time.
  • Delivery fee includes delivery by courier to all major centres in South Africa. However, international / outlying or rural areas’ delivery will require an additional fee, of which you will be advised by means of invoice when we receive your online order.
  • In some cases a package might be undelivered or delayed through no fault of ours – for instance, no-one might be home to sign for the parcel, you are unable to answer calls from our courier or an invalid address is supplied. In such an event, and if possible, a second delivery will be attempted. If the package is again unable to be delivered, it will be returned to our offices and you will be held liable for any additional shipping costs incurred thereafter.
