Description

These items are priced individually. To see the quantity we have remaining see the quantity box. We have many counters listed in both of our Etsy stores. See the links below.

These tokens are unusual in that they are unfinished and larger than the majority. They have only been engraved to one side and have not been ground down to their final size matching the engraving. A very rare find as we have had thousands of chips pass through our stores and never had any unfinished ones before.

"Can I get a discount?"

Sorry, our prices are fixed. EVE never has sales. We do reward customer loyalty though! Customers can claim loyalty points with every purchase they make. These points can be used to apply discounts on future purchases from us. Your points are recorded in the 'My Account' area of our website and are updated automatically when you make purchases through your account. For every £20 you spend on items you receive one point worth £1. Postage discounts are also automatically applied to multiple item orders at checkout. Additional items weighing less than 1kg are sent with no extra postal charge

"How quickly can I get this?"

Items are usually dispatched within one working day. They typically arrive with customers 5-10 working days (1-2 weeks) after dispatch via our standard tracked and recorded delivery service. An express tracked and signed for upgrade is available at checkout and this usually takes 3-7 working days. A premium one man one vehicle courier is also available within Western Europe at prices starting from £199 for delivery within 24 hours of your order. We cannot guarantee any shipping times as we rely on assorted third parties for transit and cross border services. Please see our shipping policies for more detailed information on shipping.

"What size is this?"

Please check listing descriptions for sizes or alternatively photos for rulers. If you require further measurements send us a message and we will get back to you promptly.

"Do you ship to...? How much is postage to...?"

We ship worldwide via tracked and insured postage services. All standard international postage prices are found in individual listings by clicking on the shipping tab. International standard postage usually takes 1-2 weeks from dispatch to arrive with customers. Express upgrades are available at checkout. We give automatic postage discounts on multiple item orders at checkout. We may be able to offer cheaper international postage prices for larger items if you are not in a rush. See more information on postage in our additional policies section.

"Where are you based?"

We are based in the United Kingdom and France. Most of our stock is dispatched from France. We can dispatch from the U.K. by arrangement, often at reduced rates for larger items if you are not in too much of a rush. Personal collection can be arranged in Normandy, France and East Kent, U.K. Ask for details.

"Can you gift wrap this for me?"

Yes of course for no extra charge! We can also include a card. Let us know the message you would like to include and we will send you a picture of the wrapped item and card before we send it off.

"Do you have any more of, or similiar items to those listed?"

Nearly all of our stock appears on our website (but we always have more listing to do!). There is a chance that we may have different items and quantities than those that are listed here immediately available from stock. We also keep tabs on a lot of outlets in our local areas and also have quite a network of colleagues throughout Western Europe, so we may be able to help source your special requirements. If you would like us to keep an eye out for something or source an item just let us know what you are after and your budget and we will let you know promptly if we can help.

"Can I reserve an item?"

Sorry. We no longer offer lay-away or take reservation deposits.

"What if I change my mind? Or just don't like my item?"

We operate a love it, or return it, no quibble, refund policy. We appreciate that things sometimes do not fit in or suit quite as expected, and as a result we are happy to provide refunds due to the very nature of online shopping. Buyers will be responsible for all transit costs. To qualify simply supply tracking details of the returned item and we will issue a refund for the item upon receipt.

"Can I just borrow this item for a while?"

Yes you can! We have previously been happy to loan items for film shoots, television shows, photo shoots, shop openings, weddings and corporate events. Terms are negotiable but we usually ask for full payment for the item and then refund 50% upon return of the item(s) to us within a year. Obviously items need to be returned in the condition they were sent out in. Customers will be responsible for initial and return transit costs and any damage incurred whilst in use or in return transit.

Postage discounts are automatically applied to multiple item orders. You only pay a postage charge for the heaviest item you buy. For example; if you buy ten items weighing 1kg or less you will only pay a single 1kg postage charge.

If you are not in a rush (4-8 week delivery window) ask about budget postal services for items weighing over 2kg. We can sometimes make savings of up to 50% by using slower budget couriers.
