If you’ve purchased a non-personalised item and you wish to return it you have 7 days to notify us to request an exchange or refund.
If you have purchased a personalised item, please note that the hand stamping process is not perfect. Minor imperfections are all part of the character of our pieces, and therefore we cannot guarantee letters will line up perfectly or be stamped exactly the same. Please also note that you are responsible for ensuring that you provide us with the correct text or other details for personalised or bespoke items, and we cannot be responsible for any errors in the details you provide to us. You will not be entitled to cancel the Contract or receive a refund or replacement where the details you have provided to us are incorrect.
Please therefore double-check all the personalisation details before checkout to avoid disappointment.
We can fit up to 42 characters onto our teaspoons so get creative! You can add the person's tea preference or even just personalise the spoon with a romantic 'I love you' or a name.
All of the cutlery is available with a choice of handle style, some simple in design and some more ornate. We find that simple handles are especially good for men or people with a more classic taste, while the ornate handles lend themselves well to ladies and people who like vintage styles. You can select your handle choice from the drop down menu.
Our personalised cutlery differs from engraved cutlery because here at The Cutlery Commission we use traditional, industrial tools to indent every single letter into the silver plate itself. Therefore marks made during the hammering process are expected and spacing and alignment of letters are not exact. It all adds to the whimsical and charming look that makes your commissioned piece of cutlery such a unique gift.
Each commission will arrive tied in chiffon ribbon with a branded tag and tiny spoon charm; all lovingly wrapped in our bespoke acid-free tissue paper and ready to be given as a gift... or kept for yourself! If you want that little extra touch you can now purchase a Cutlery Commission branded gift box complete with a cleaning cloth. They come in three sizes so we will allocate the correct size for the order.
All of the cutlery is hand-crafted from brass, which is then silver plated. None of the items are therefore dishwasher safe and we recommend hand-washing in warm water. Although the cutlery is perfectly useable, being silver plated means that it is prone to tarnish over time and should be treated more as a keepsake rather than an every-day utensil. And remember – silver cutlery loves a good polish now and then!
