Consultation & Commission Orders

Following a consultation, a 50% non-refundable deposit will be required to secure your order.  All materials required for the artwork (cremation ashes, botanicals, objects etc) will need to be sent to Step in the Picture within 4 weeks of placing your order unless the order is event specific, in which an alternative date will have been previously agreed.  If Step in the Picture do not receive the materials required within the 4 weeks of placing the order, or 4 weeks after the event, we reserve the right to cancel your order; resulting in the retention of the deposit.  If the full value has been paid upfront, Step in the Picture will retain 50% to cover the value of the non- refundable deposit and the remainder of the value will be issued as a credit note which will be valid for 12 months.  It is down to the discretion of Step in the Picture if a part refund is issued.    
For fresh flower preservation, to stand the best chance of preserving the colour we would need the flowers as fresh as possible, within the first 3 days is the most optimal time to start the preservation.    The flowers would need to be securely packaged and delivery arranged at the cost of the customer no later than 3 days following the event so they are in the best possible condition for preservation.  We endeavour to preserve all the flowers you supply however due to their organic nature it is not always possible to preserve all flowers, preserved flowers can also change characteristics.   Step in the Picture will not take any liability for flowers or materials that do not successfully preserve due to time delay, that have been damaged or go missing through transit.
