Dispatching Your Order

At INSTANT EFFECTS we endeavour to keep stock levels as accurate as possible. Unfortunately, due to the large volume of orders being processed daily there can be very rare occasions where our stock levels do not immediately reflect on the website.
In the event of an order being placed for an item of which we no longer have stock we will replenish our holding as soon as possible and the product(s) will be sent at the very earliest convenience. We will contact you by email as soon as possible to advise you of this. If you are ordering multiple items at once we will have stocked items dispatched separately and then dispatch any missing items as soon as we receive more stock.
