Shipping & Returns

To our valued customers: 

It is our goal to ensure that you are 100% satisfied with your purchase.  In doing so, we take extra time and care in the creation of everything in our shop (if we are not satisfied with the result).

Because we work with natural organic materials such as wood, metals, stone and even acrylics, it is not uncommon for these materials to have natural anomalies like dark or light spots, knots, swirls, specks and sometimes uneven spots.  Please note that these are not defects but are naturally occurring unique characteristics or “personalities” and we work with them as best as possible.    

All of our products, pre and post packaging are photographed for quality control purposes. It is our goal that your purchase is received the way it left our shop – in perfect condition. 

We hope you won’t need this information, but as things sometimes go wrong, here’s our return policy and what we can do to try to make it right.

returns, Refunds & Cancellation


We want to make sure that you are fully satisfied with your purchase so if there are any issues with your custom gift, please contact us within 7 business days of delivery so that we can work with you directly to resolve any issue. 

Due to the customization of our laser-cut products, we do not offer refunds, returns or exchanges.  However, if your item is defective, or there is an engraving error on our part, we will send a replacement of the same item.  

Replacement items will be sent using the same shipping method as paid for on the original order– if your order requires expediting, there may be additional fees.

Please confirm the address entered at checkout, or on PayPal or Venmo, matches your shipping address as that will be the address we ship to.  Additional charges due to insufficient address or return shipments will be billed to the customer.

IMPORTANT:  Misspellings, incorrect dates, or any other typographical errors are not subject to refunds or exchanges since the customer must approve all  information utilized for customized designs prior to engraving. 

*Shipping damage is not deemed as a defect in the product and you will need to file your claim with the shipping carrier directly. We can provide  you with whatever information needed to assist you with the claim process.


All sales are final.  NO REFUNDS.  Exchange of a “defective” product may be approved. Please contact us for instructions and refer to the “Defective Products” information below.
