Return Information
Our goal is total customer satisfaction. Here's what you need to know.


Buying an item without seeing it directly in front of you doesn't make the decision easy. I want you to know that I fully understand the trepidation of online shopping and I'll do my best to make sure that your purchase is simple, secure, and fully backed by my personal promise that I will do whatever I can to earn and keep your business.

This is not just some business slogan mumbo-jumbo. If you have any questions or concerns about your order, you can work directly with me (Joe) to find an answer or solution. No customer support representatives, no salesmen, no excuses... if your order isn't exactly what you thought it would be, contact me and I will personally work with you to make it right.

Return Policies

I hope that the veneers and other products offered on our website meet your highest expectations and as a small business owner I truly care about your satisfaction. I will do everything possible to help remedy the issue if something goes off track. With that in mind, I do have some policies which keep the return process efficient and sensible.

  • No returns will be accepted after 30 days.
  • Items must be received in the condition which they were sent. Returned items must be clean and in new condition.
  • Any items returned in used condition will not be refunded since we do not sell used products.
  • Prior to sending a return, you must contact us for approval.
  • A return sent without our approval will be refused and/or returned postage due.
  • Each item should be appropriately protected and packaged for a safe transit.
  • Packages must be returned postage-paid and insured.

Receiving Credit

All returns are acknowledged by email. Refunds will be made within 5 days of receipt of the returned items. Shipping and handling charges are not refundable. Returned items that qualified for free outbound shipping will have our original shipping charges deducted from the refund.

Damaged Shipments

If you receive a shipment please notify us via email and we will work to resolve the situation as quickly as possible. Do not use or discard any damaged items or boxes. Damaged items which are used or discarded can not be submitted for a damage claim to the carrier and you will lose your opportunity for a refund or replacement.

We require pictures of any damaged items and of the shipping box to file a damage claim with the carrier. No refunds will be given without adequate proof of damage with pictures sent to us by email. If you are unable to communicate with us by email or unwilling to send pictures by email, we respectfully ask that you do not order from us.

Missing Items

If an item is missing from your order, you must notify us by email within 3 days of receipt of your package.

Canceled Orders, Refused Orders, and Non-Deliverable Addresses 

Orders that are canceled before shipment are subject to a 10% re-processing fee (not to exceed $10) to cover the time and expense of unpacking the items and processing the refund.

Orders that are refused upon delivery and returned to us will be subject to a $16.00 restocking fee. This is to cover the cost of the return shipment and the labor involved in re-handling your order.

Packages returned to us because of a non-deliverable address can be re-shipped to an alternate address at the customer's expense. To avoid this, please be certain that your shipping address is deliverable by USPS, UPS, and FedEx. If customer chooses to cancel the order, a refund of the item costs will be made (less any applicable restocking fees). The shipping and handling charges for that order will not be refunded.

International Refunds

All refunds and cancellations are processed in US dollars, which is the currency for all of our transactions. The refund will be processed at the current exchange rate, which will be calculated at the time of processing by your card issuer. We are not responsible for fluctuations in exchange rates or any loss caused by these changes.
