Refunds and Returns

You're eligible for a refund within 3 days if you're dissatisfied with your purchase due to an error on our part or if the product doesn't arrive at all.

1. Incorrect Product / Not As Described / Damaged

You are eligible for a full refund of the purchase price,  but not including original shipping costs, only if your return is a result of an error on our part. To receive a refund, you must return your item directly to us within 3 days of the estimated delivery date and in the same condition you received it in.

2. Product Did Not Arrive

You are eligible for a full refund of the purchase price, including shipping costs, if your product hasn't arrived 30 days past the estimated delivery date. If the shipper/courier provides tracking information indicating the book has arrived, the return is void.

In cases where the product is returned to us for any of the following reasons, the refund price includes product price only: incomplete address, unclaimed, returned to sender, or similar.

3. Product Deposit

Our products are custom made on demand, therefore, we require a 20% deposit on all our products as a commitment fee. The deposit is fully refundable if the product is returned due to an error on our part. A demand on the deposit refund due to any other claims may not be honored. This is because the product will have already incured cost of production and workmanship that otherwise would not have been incured.
