Returns & exchanges
Customer satisfaction is very important to me. Unfortunately, I cannot offer returns or exchanges on custom works due to the many hours that go into drawing them. Please remember to check your proof very carefully to ensure proper spelling. In rare cases, if a mistake is made on my part, I will make all necessary corrections and replace the product at no charge to client. Thank you for your understanding!
While every effort will be made to ensure the accuracy of colours/ textures in the file(s)/ merchandise, I cannot guarantee a 100% colour match between my client's monitor and that of the actual file(s)/ merchandise.
