Our full refund policy lasts 30 days. If 30 days have gone by since your purchase, and you did not upload your photo. You need to email us within those 30 days, so we can offer a full refund and you will receive your money back. But if you have not emailed within 30 days, regardless if you did not upload a photo. You are not eligible for a full refund.
If you uploaded a photo for processing you are not liable for any refund because this is a customized painting kit, so it can´t be used by someone else anymore. And we have used up our time and resources to process these kits.
Please note: In order to maintain our high standards, we are unable to guarantee Christmas delivery for Custom Paintings orders placed after November 10th. Custom orders (photo to painting) can take up to 6-9 weeks during the holiday period. They are certainly worth the wait!
Please note: We are unable to offer refunds for custom paint by numbers. Because these unique items are made manually with lots of time and effort and will not be useful for other people.
We can't offer you a refund if you:
- Forget to enter parts of your address
- Your address was entered completely wrong
- You do not accept the package or do not pick it up in the parcel shop
- You enter a wrong email address and we can't contact you with issues or requests
- You do not answer to email requests regarding your uploaded photos (e.g. no photo uploaded or quality issues)
In the cases listed above, we will send the package a second time to an address provided by you. We cannot give you a refund for your order, as we have already incurred costs for your personalised product and shipping.
If the package is returned, we will charge a $15 handling fee for each additional shipment.
Damaged or quality issues
If the product is damaged or has quality issues, we require a proof of the quality issue. This is for quality assurance reasons and so that we can continue to improve our products. If the quality issue is our fault, we will re-produce and reship your goods. We will only do this if you can provide us photos via email which confirm the quality issue. If the evidence cannot be seen from the photos, the customer must return the item at his own expense.
If the customer suspects that the colors are wrong, he needs to complete the painting as proof to determine whether there really is a quality defect. Our experience has shown that the colors are correct in most cases. Please send us a photo of your painted picture as proof. Then we will send you a new kit if there are quality issues.
In any case - please do not send your purchase back to the manufacturer address.
