Contracting with Newspaper Club
Set out below are the steps which must be taken to conclude a contract with Newspaper Club when ordering/purchasing from Newspaper Club.
1. Check all variable information e.g. prices. [See ‘Pricing’].
All such information is an "invitation to treat" rather than a contractual offer from us which you are entitled to accept. We reserve the right to correct any errors in such information without any liability to you. We will not be contractually bound to supply you with Products on the basis of any incorrect information, even if such information is repeated in your offer to us ("Order"). Note, your Order will be treated as an offer by you to receive Products on these Conditions which we may or may not accept.
This website can be used by users of any age. However, orders and purchases can only be made by customers who have attained the age of 18 years. Under 18s who wish to make orders/purchases should do so through an appropriate adult.
3. Completing your Order
You are entirely responsible for selecting the Products you wish to purchase, for supplying and maintaining a functioning e-mail address, your delivery address, for making the appropriate payment and for giving us any other information we request to enable us to fulfil your Order and comply with the Contract. All information you submit to us must be adequate, relevant, accurate and up to date.
You must pay online when making the Order by using PayPal, credit or debit card, or by any other means as set out on our Website.
When you have completed your Order, you will be shown a copy on screen. It is your responsibility to check your Order carefully to identify any errors and to correct them prior to placing your Order. The Website allows you to cancel your draft Order, and to edit any details and once you have finished checking and correcting your Order, please print out a copy before placing it.
4. Place your Order
You may place your Order by clicking on the ‘Order’ button.
We will promptly acknowledge receipt of your Order both on the Website and by e-mail. Please note this does not constitute our acceptance of your Order, but merely confirmation of its receipt.
5. Await acceptance of your Order
You may not assume we have accepted your Order until we send you an acceptance in electronic form (”Acceptance”). Only if and when you receive our Acceptance will we have made a binding legal Contract with you.
You may receive an acknowledgement from our payment processor, advising you that your payment has been authorised. This acknowledgement relates to your payment only. It does not constitute or indicate our Acceptance of your Order.
We will be entitled to refuse to accept your Order at our sole discretion. If we do decide to refuse your Order, we will let you know as soon as we can. If we accept your Order, we will send you an Acceptance promptly.
Further information about the Contract
The Contract will consist of (1) these Conditions, (2) your Order and (3) our Acceptance. There can only be a Contract between us if all these elements are present. Subject to these elements being present, the Contract will come into effect on the date of our Acceptance.
The Products we supply to you shall be subject to any restrictions set out on our Website or in the Contract.
The Contract will not be filed on-line. You should therefore print out and retain copies of each element of the Contract.
These Conditions shall take precedence over and exclude any other terms and conditions you seek to impose.
We may update or change these Conditions from time to time without notice and the date of the most current version is that set out at the top of these Conditions. You must read them each time you place an Order with us through our Website.
We will only contract in English and not in any other language.
Material Supplied by You
All copy will be supplied by the Customer in electronic format in accordance with the Company’s specification for electronic copy, as amended by the Company from time to time – See ‘PDF Format Requirements’. The Company reserves the right to reject any copy supplied or specified by the Customer which does not comply with the Company’s specification for electronic copy or which otherwise appears to the Company to be unsuitable but the Company will be under no liability to check the quality or suitability of the same.
Where such unsuitable copy is supplied or specified, the Company will not be liable in any way for any delay, defect, shortfall in compliance with the Order or breach of these Conditions or loss resulting from, or to the extent that it results from, or is contributed to by, such copy, or any quality characteristic, unsuitability or defect in the same, or its use for the Work or which would not have resulted had suitable copy been used. The Company shall be entitled to charge the Customer for any additional costs incurred in producing the Work as a result of the supply or specification of such unsuitable copy by the Customer.
The Customer will be solely responsible for maintaining a copy of any original electronic file it supplies to the Company and any information or content uploaded onto the Site. The Company will not be responsible for checking the accuracy of such material unless otherwise agreed in writing.
The Company will not be required to print any matter, which in its opinion may be of an illegal or libellous nature or which might involve any infringement of any third party’s rights.
The Customer will indemnify and keep indemnified the Company in respect of any cost, expense, loss, damage, liability or penalty arising from, or incurred by the Company in connection with, any complaint, claim, action, proceedings or prosecution brought or made against the Company or the Customer in respect of, or arising in any way from, any matter or thing appearing in or on any Work or other material printed, processed or dealt with for the Customer by the Company, whether such matter or thing is or is alleged to be illegal, unlawful, libellous, in breach of or an infringement of copyright, trade mark, patent, design or any other third party right and whether such complaint, claim, action, proceedings or prosecution is settled, compromised or litigated in any way.
Pricing and Payment
1. The price payable for standard Products are as itemised – see ‘Pricing’.
2. Subject to our obligation to supply the Products at the price stated in a Contract, we reserve the right at any time to increase the list prices of the Products and to change the range of Products available. We will endeavour to give you as much notice as we can of changes to the range and any increase in prices.
3. You will not be entitled to alter an Order after it has been accepted by us.
4. If you fail to make any payment (including any payment in advance requested by us) on the due date then, in addition to any other right or remedy available to us, we shall be entitled to:
a. cancel the Contract or suspend any further production of Products and deliveries to you;
b. appropriate any payment made by you to such of the Products (or Products supplied under any other Contract with you) as we may think fit; and
In addition to the remedies above, we will have a lien over any materials, documentation and information supplied by you until full payment of any sums owed to us under any Contract has been received.
Almost all of the newspapers we print are zero-rated for VAT. However, a small number will incur the standard 20% charge. If your paper can be described as one of the following it's likely to be liable for VAT: a set of posters, stationery, a calendar, a collection of photos, a questionnaire, reproductions of paintings, wrapping paper (for a full list of printed items and their VAT status see the HMRC site). However, there are mitigating factors - for instance, a newspaper containing a collection of photos that also contained a significant amount of text would be a zero-rated item. If you think your paper may fall into a chargeable category please get in touch and we can advise - it's not always easy to determine.
1. The Products you order will be delivered to the address you give when you place your Order. We deliver worldwide to any location listed on our pricing page. 'UK delivery' covers delivery to the UK mainland only. UK addresses outside the mainland may incur extra charges. We may be able to deliver to other locations on request. Orders via a courier service will require a signature on receipt. Larger orders will be delivered on a pallet so delivery addresses must be accessible for large vehicles. A working phone number must be supplied for all orders in case the delivery company need to make contact.
2. For courier and pallet deliveries, if there is no one at the address given who is competent to accept delivery of the Products (all Products must be signed for on delivery by an adult aged 18 years or over), you will be notified that an attempt to deliver the Products was made and you will be given the option to either arrange for a further delivery, or to collect from the courier service's depot. Orders sent by Royal Mail do not require a signature, and are not tracked.
3. Every effort will be made to deliver the Products as soon as possible after your order has been accepted and in any event within 30 days from receipt by us of all information we require from you in order to complete your Order. Dates shown in our delivery calculator are a guide only. No delivery dates can be guaranteed as they rely on circumstances outside our control. We will not be liable for any loss or damage suffered by you through any reasonable or unavoidable delay in delivery or if such delay is caused by you.
4. We will use reasonable efforts to deliver the correct quantity of Products ordered. Variations in Product quantities are, however, inherent in the printing process and although we will endeavour to provide you with the accurate quantity of Products ordered, a variation of +/- 10% (“Permitted Error Margin”) of the total quantity ordered shall be deemed permitted and shall not entitle you or us to bring any claim for underpayment or short delivery as the case may be.
5. If you have not received your newspapers within the timeframe stated in our delivery calculator please check the tracking information if you have been sent it, or contact us for more details. Please note that Royal Mail deliveries cannot be tracked, and replacements will not be sent out until 14 days after the original order date. Replacement copies will only be supplied from the original artwork.
6. We are not responsible for the replacement or redirection of any items sent to an incorrect address. The customer is responsible for providing the correct address (including postcode) and a telephone number where someone can be contacted about the delivery, and for ensuring that someone is available to sign for the goods if a signature is required.
Risk and Ownership of Products
You will become responsible for the risk of loss or damage to the Products ordered once they have been delivered to you.
1. We shall be entitled to cancel your Order and any Contract if:
a. in our reasonable opinion the Product or any of its contents are of an illegal, offensive or libellous nature, or
b. you do not pay us the price due for the Products by the due date; or
c. the Printing Data does not comply with the PDF Format Requirements; or
d. the Printing Data is incompatible with the Company’s printers and therefore cannot be printed.
2. You acknowledge that the Products are of a bespoke nature made to your order. Accordingly, you are not be entitled to a “Cooling-off Period” during which you can cancel the Contract and return any Products ordered without incurring liability for the agreed price for the Products. In other words, once your Order is accepted by us, you are not entitled to cancel the contract without our written agreement. This does not affect your statutory rights.
The Company warrants that it will use reasonable skill and care in the printing of the Work and agrees that if the Work is defective by reason of any breach of this warranty by the Company, the Company will, at its option, either rectify such defect at its own expense or refund the charge made by the Company for setting and printing the defective Work, but in no circumstances whatsoever will the Company be under any further liability to the Customer of any kind.
Newspaper Club’s Liability
1. Subject as expressly provided in these Conditions, and except where Products are sold to a person dealing as a consumer (within the meaning of the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977), all warranties, conditions or other terms implied by statute or common law are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.
2. Where the goods are sold under a consumer transaction (as defined by the Consumer Transactions (Restrictions on Statements) Order 1976), your statutory rights as buyer are not affected by these Conditions.
3. A claim by you which is based on any defect in the quality or condition of the Products or their failure to correspond with specification shall (whether or not delivery is refused by you) be notified to us within three working days from the date of delivery or (where the defect or failure was not apparent on reasonable inspection) within a reasonable time after discovery of the defect or failure. If delivery is not refused and you do not notify us accordingly, then you shall not be entitled to reject the Products and we shall have no liability for such defect or failure, and you shall be bound to pay the price as if the Products had been delivered in accordance with the Contract.
4. Where a valid claim in respect of any of the Products which is based on a defect in the quality or condition of the Products or their failure to meet specification is notified to us in accordance with these Conditions, we shall replace the Products (or the part in question) free of charge or, at our sole discretion, refund to you the price of the Products (or a proportionate part of the price), in which case we shall have no further liability to you.
5. Except in respect of death or personal injury caused by our negligence, or liability for defective Products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987, we shall not be liable under or in relation to this Contract or its subject matter (whether such liability arises due to negligence, breach of contract, misrepresentation, or for any other reason excluding fraudulent misrepresentation) for any technical, factual, textual or other typographical inaccuracies, errors or omissions in information on the Website, for any loss or damage arising from the use of your credit or debit card on the Website, for the unavailability of the Website (or any part of it), for any delay in providing or failing to supply the Products, or for any loss of profits, loss of business, loss of anticipated savings, loss of sales or turnover, loss of, or damage to reputation, loss of contract, loss of customers, loss of, or loss of use of any software or data, or computer or other equipment or plant, wasted management or other staff time, losses or liabilities under or in relation to any other contract or any indirect, consequential loss or damage (including loss or damage suffered by you as a result of an action brought by a third party).
6. Our liability under or in connection with any Contract shall not exceed the price for the Products, unless expressly provided in these Conditions.
7. Products requiring colour printing may differ slightly from the original or from Products of a different batch of Products produced for you under a previous order by you and any such minor differences are inherent in the printing process and shall not entitle you to reject such Products or to bring a claim for a defect in the quality or condition of the Products or failure to correspond with the agreed specification.
8. We expressly agree that should any limitation of liability Condition or provision contained in the Contract be held to be invalid under any applicable legislation (primary or otherwise) or rule of law by reason of some part of that Condition or provision it shall, to that extent, be deemed omitted, but if we thereby become liable for loss or damage which would otherwise have been excluded or limited, as the case may be, such liability should be subject to the other applicable limitations and provisions set out in these Conditions.
You should be aware that with the exception of credit or debit card numbers and the information we specifically request of you to enable us to enter into a Contract with you, we do not wish to receive any information of a confidential or proprietary nature from you through this Website and any such information you send to us will be deemed by us not to be confidential in nature.
Any materials, documentation and information supplied by you under any Contract will (unless agreed otherwise) be stored by us only until the date of delivery of the Products you have ordered, after which they may be destroyed without further notice to you. As noted above, you are solely responsible for keeping copies of any and all data, information, works etc. submitted to the Company. The Company excludes all liability for loss or damage to any such material.
Termination of Contract
We may terminate any Contract forthwith on giving notice to you if you fail to comply with any term or condition of any Contract, or if you become bankrupt or (being a company) enter administration or go into liquidation or cease or threaten to cease to carry on business.
Limitation of Action

3. You will be responsible for providing and maintaining at all relevant times a properly functioning e-mail address and (without limitation) it will particularly be your responsibility to ensure that your spam filter and/or other e-mail settings do not prevent receipt of or distort any electronic communications from us. Unless you notify us otherwise, we will use your e-mail address for any correspondence with you. With the exception of death and personal injury caused by our negligence, we shall not be liable for any losses or damages suffered by you as a result of your failure to comply with this clause.
