Please enquire about these fees at your local customs office. These fees are to be paid by you. Furthermore, depending on the transport company commissioned, additional service and processing fees may be incurred over which we have no control and which are also to be borne by you. For each delivery that we arrange for you to non-EU countries, we will issue the invoice net, i.e. without German VAT. The prices are duty unpaid and untaxed.
Swiss customers pay Swiss VAT and import duty to the delivery company upon receipt of the goods. Further information specifically for Switzerland can be found at

Cancellation policy

Right of withdrawal

You have the right to cancel this contract within fourteen days without giving any reason. The revocation period is fourteen days from the day on which you or a third party named by you, who is not the carrier, has or has taken possession of the goods.

In order to exercise your right of revocation, you must send us

  • Velken-Folientechnik GmbH
    Schulstr. 52
    46395 Bocholt

    Fax- No. : 02871 - 23 44 008

In order to comply with the withdrawal period, it is sufficient for you to send the notification of the exercise of the right of withdrawal before the expiry of the withdrawal period.

Consequences of cancellation

If you withdraw from this contract, we must refund all payments we have received from you, including delivery costs (with the exception of additional costs resulting from the fact that you have chosen a type of delivery other than the cheapest standard delivery offered by us), without delay and at the latest within fourteen days of the day on which we received notification of your withdrawal from this contract. For this repayment, we will use the same means of payment that you used for the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise with you; in no case will you be charged for this repayment.

We may refuse repayment until we have received the goods back or until you have provided proof that you have returned the goods, whichever is the earlier.

You must return or hand over the goods to us without delay and in any case no later than fourteen days from the day on which you notify us of the cancellation of this contract. The deadline is met if you send the goods before the expiry of the period of fourteen days.

You shall bear the direct costs of returning the goods.
You only have to pay for any loss in value of the goods if this loss in value is due to handling of the goods that is not necessary for checking the condition, properties and functioning of the goods.

8.1 The right of withdrawal does not apply to distance contracts for the delivery of goods that are not prefabricated and for the manufacture of which an individual selection or determination by the consumer is decisive or which are not suitable for return due to their utilisation (e.g. used foils). To enable you to check the goods before purchase, we will send appropriate samples on request.

§9 Warranty

Justified complaints will only be considered if they are submitted in writing within 14 days of receipt of the goods, together with the evidence. Defects in a part of the delivery cannot lead to a complaint about the entire goods. When processing our goods, existing instructions for use must be observed or prior samples must be taken.
