Returns, Refunds, and Exchanges
I am 100% committed to your satisfaction; so, I will work with you to ensure that you are satisfied with the cover you have chosen. That said, the following applies:
When you purchase a premade cover from my store, it means that you are satisfied with the design. We both agree that certain elements that mentioned under the cover (e.g. title) might be modified; but, by you completing the purchase, it means that you understand the design is final.
When purchasing a premade cover the payment is due after signing the contract and prior to receiving the final files. No refunds are allowed.
As soon as the alterations to the elements mentioned above are finished and the payment has been received the final file will be sent to the client.
When you order a custom cover the process is designed to work with you every step of the way in order to deliver the perfect cover you were looking for.
Once a cover is customized to your needs, and I’ve sent you files, it results in you having material that cannot be sold to anyone else.
For these reasons, no refunds will be accepted after delivering the final high-resolution cover.
