Performing Licence

IMPORTANT:  Please take note that to combat TV piracy, all Black Artefacts effects are now covered by a licence agreement.  By purchasing the effect you are deemed to be agreeing with the conditions of the licence.

With the purchase of any Black Artefacts effect, book or video tape, you are granted full performing rights for that particular effect or effects contained therein.  This licence extends only to the original purchaser and the effect, book, video cannot be re-sold, hired or lent to any third party, organisation or company. This licence DOES NOT include the right to divulge the secret or working method of the effects or effects to any third part or parties, organisation or company whatsoever, by any means whatsoever. The right to divulge the secret or working method is retained by Black Hart Productions. The grant of this licence will be backed by legal action.


Shipping by surface mail is included in the catalogue price.  Please note that international orders (outside the UK) will be dispatched by airmail (Royal Mail) and will be tracked. Shipping by airmail takes from 5 to 14 days. The rates depend on the amount spent and will be calculated by the ‘shopping basket’. For airmail delivery the cost is added to the total cost of the order. You will be notified by email when your order is shipped. During the Covid-19 crisis we are limiting our exposure by making just one visit to the post office per week. Currently this will be every Tuesday, so unfortunately there may be a couple of days delay in shipping your order, but we hope that you understand.

Product Development

It is Black Artefact’s company policy to continually develop our products. Through use whilst performing, or feedback from customers we may tweak the scripts or handling for our effects in an effort to improve our products. Occasionally we have to change suppliers as ‘components’ either cease to be manufactured or the specification changes. We will always substitute an item of equal or superior quality when this is the case.
