Ordering and delivery

What order possibilities are there?

It's easy to place an order via our order software. This is free and can be downloaded from our website. You can also place an order through the website.

 

What image formats are there?

We offer variable formats due to the various aspect ratios that come from digital and analogue cameras. This creates a classic analogue camera image with an aspect ratio of 2:3 and the format of a digital camera mainly with a ratio of 3:4.

If you would now like to print an existing digital photo with an aspect ratio of 3:4 into a classical 2:3 format (3.5x5"), your picture would first have to be adapted to the 2:3 format! Your picture must therefore first be cropped, or will be printed with a white border to the left and right. The variable format therefore means that you do not have to make any adjustments to the aspect ratio.

An example: With the size 9 format, the narrowest side of the image to be printed is automatically preset at 9cm. The width conforms to the currently available or preset image width. ) A square shaped image is delivered in the format 9cm x 9cm when selecting the size 9 format and a wide image can be delivered in the format 9cm x 18cm (and without the white border and without parts of the image cropped).

Of course, these variable picture widths are also subject to certain limits as you can see in the table below.

How does the order process take place?

After selecting your pictures or designing your product in the first step of the order, you will reach the shopping basket.

Here you will see an overview of the products that you have selected. You now have the opportunity to check your order once again and make adjustments where necessary. By clicking on the tool symbol, you can go back to editing the product. If you want to delete a product from the shopping basket, click on the cross. If you have a voucher, you can already enter the relevant code into the entry field and confirm it with "redeem voucher code". To redeem a voucher code you must already be registered or log in by clicking the "Register now" button just before.

The information is transferred to us in an encrypted form. No matter how you pay, you always receive your receipt within your delivery. If you pay via PayPal, you will be forwarded from the Lidl site to the PayPal's official payment site where you can login and pay.

How do I find out about the status of my order?

As a registered user, you can check the latest status of your order on your user account. We will also inform you of all important order steps by email (receipt confirmation, order confirmation or processing confirmation).

 

How long will it take for my order to be delivered?

Delivery information, as well as the delivery times stated on the order system, refer to orders that only contain that selected product (un-mixed order).

Orders with different items and delivery times are possible (mixed orders). Where possible, we send these in one shipment. The delivery time of the mixed order is dictated by the specifications of the items with the longest delivery time, including the delivery duration.

Products from the category "Wall Art" are excluded from joint shipment. A mixed order is still possible, though this takes place as a partial delivery (see identical note). The delivery time information of the respective article applies to partial deliveries (provided it is an unmixed part).

When ordering several products (mixed orders), the highest respective shipping cost amount will only be made payable once for the entire order.

The "delivery time" commences the day after your order is placed and ends on the last day of the defined period. Deliveries on Sundays and bank holidays are excluded.

Please note the differing order times for punctual delivery before Christmas. These are listed separately.

Unfortunately, merging several orders is no longer possible.

The ordered items are only sent to you only by mail.

No, the ordered items are only shipped to you by mail and cannot be picked up at Lidl stores.
