FAQs

What are Tubie Cheeks?

Tubie Cheeks are non-sterile adhesive dressings, designed to brighten and secure essential medical tubes and wires, whilst making them look less medical and more fun! 


What is the tape made from?

Tubie Cheeks are created using Hypafix medical grade retention tape and certified skin-safe, non-toxic inks. The rest is magic (and top secret!).

Upon request, Tubie Cheeks can also be created using Mefix rather than Hypafix - if you require Mefix, please contact us in advance of placing your order and please note this will come with a slightly extended turnaround, as it will be made to order.


When will I receive my order?

Our dispatch aim is within 3 days for standard orders including Tape & Tummy Pads. Orders containing personalised fabric items (bags, baby grows etc.) all have a turnaround time of up to 2 weeks. 

We aim to dispatch all orders well within this time frame, however during extremely busy periods (especially after a big restock or launch) or due to unforeseen circumstances, it may take slightly longer than this. Please keep an eye on our social media pages for the most up to date information regarding dispatch times/delays.


Are they waterproof?

The designs on Tubie Cheeks are waterproof and will not run. The strips themselves will survive through bathing/showering/swimming as long as they are not vigorously rubbed and do not have soap applied to them.


Do you offer any discounts?

We offer a 20% discount on Tubie Cheeks tape that is being ordered by, or is being donated to a hospital/hospice/nursing team/charity. All we ask is that the order is made using an official email address for the recipient organisation, or that the order is addressed directly to them.

In order to receive this discount, hospitals/hospices etc. can now sign up for a 'trade account'. Once approved, orders placed through these accounts will automatically have the discount applied. If you would like to order to donate to a hospital/hospice etc. please pop us an email at hello@tubiecheeks.co.uk
