You can download the invoice of the ordered goods in the e-mail that indicates the status of dispatch. If desired, this can also be sent on paper with the goods to be delivered.


In principle, there is a guarantee on the soundness of the production process of 6 months after the invoice date. If we do not receive a report of defects in the production process within this period, further complaints will be inadmissible and will be considered as a result of misuse.
