IMPORTANT TIPS regarding damaged item on arrival (SHIPIPING NSURANCE POLICY) :
If your package shows any signs of damage or rough handling, ask the delivery person to note the condition BEFORE signing for your package.
Most carriers will provide you with a copy of a damage report, if so, you can sign for the reception. If not, it is critical that you ensure that the damage is noted in the electronic signature device.
Keep in mind that most carriers require a signature to "confirm the reception and condition" of your package.
Failing to follow this tip can seriously impact your shipping insurance or at the very least, prolong the delay in receiving the shipping insurance payment required to complete any refund.
Take photos! of your package before opening and of any damage to the packaging inside the shipping envelope.
DEFECT ITEM RECEIVED
I inspect my work carefully before they ship to ensure the quality is commendable and packaged nicely to reduce the chance of any mishaps.
Should you receive a defective damaged product, take a picture and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you received the product within 24 hours. I will be happy to assist you.
Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.
If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a refund minus fees will be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within a certain amount of days.
MADE TO ORDER/ CUSTOM ORDERS
As a general rule, we do not accept cancellations on custom/made to order items because once your order has been placed, we begin to work on it immediately. If you have a question or concern after placing an order, please reach out to us immediately at email@example.com
In the event we waive our cancellation policy, please expect a fee of 30-80% of your product total, depending on how far along we got on your order. The fee will be deducted from your refund and processed in the same form as your original payment. If your order has already been shipped, we cannot accommodate a cancellation.
Custom orders must be discussed up front before making a purchase. I reserve the right to reject any custom order that I do not feel fits within my production time frame or capabilities. I respond to definitive and well thought out custom requests with specific imagery and design concepts and/or with visuals for reference promptly before loosely developed ideas without any direction. Custom orders will accrue additional fees after first initial consultation for the time spent discussing and designing the piece in addition to production and material costs. I will require a 40% retainer fee of final cost before I start the production of your custom order. For example, if the final cost of your custom piece is $40, I will require $16 to begin work on your custom piece.
LATE OR MISSING REFUNDS (IF APPLICABLE)
If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again.
Then contact your credit card company, it may take some time before your refund is officially posted.
Next contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted.
If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
