Welcome to Autumn

first off, I hope that you’ve all had a good and successful summer. Autumn is on us, the season of mellow fruitfulness according to Keats and September is a particularly favourite month of mine, bringing great colours, wonderful smells and, down here in the West, the start of the rugby season.

Block Foiling
We’re frequently asked whether we do Block Foiling. Although we don’t offer this service we have teamed up with PrintFlair and will be writing more about this next month

Minimum Order Value
Because all orders are custom cut to your requirements we have to ensure that we obtain the best value, and minimise wastage and this is why we have a minimum order value of £20.00 before VAT.

Cotswold Mounts on Ebay
Don’t forget our EBay Store to sell through clearance stock, which typically is simply surplus production. All of the Mounts are as-new; quality checked and are not seconds.

You Asked – We Answered

Many thanks to all of you who completed our survey last month, the feedback has been enlightening and useful. If you’ve not had time, it’s not too late to have your say about Social Media and Cotswold Mounts in general, the survey’s still live. Why don’t you have a look and tell us what you think.

Latest News and Updates

FacebookRomantic Beach Wedding
One of the questions we asked was “Which Social Media sites do you use?” and “Which Social Media Sites would you like to see Cotswold Mounts using?”

Well, you told us that 86% of you use Facebook and 77% of you would like to see us join – so we have.

77% of you also said that you’d like us to use Facebook to keep you up to date with news, new products and spacial offers so, for those Facebook users please Visit & Like our page for precisely that.

A number of people who completed the survey raised a small number of issues that we’d like to address here. We’d contact you directly but the anonymous nature of the survey means we don’t know who you are.

Shipping Costs
We spent a lot of time investigating a number of major shipping providers and ended up selecting DPD because they offered the best combination of service, reliability and cost. Unfortunately it is just not cost effective to offer free delivery on orders below £100.00 (ex VAT) to the mainland and £125.00 (ex. VAT) to the Highlands and Islands, Northern and Southern Ireland.

Minimum Order Value
Because all orders are custom cut to your requirements we have to ensure that we obtain the best value, and minimise wastage and this is why we have a minimum order value of £20.00 before VAT.

Matching Colours
Showing colours on a web site is really difficult. We use the master images directly from our provider but each screen *whether PC, Mac, tablet or phone) will show them differently. This is one of the reasons why we offer a free colour swatch or sample pack. If you want one just give us a call on 01242 248884 or send us an email.
