Returns & Exchanges

Returns or exchanges will be accepted within 14 days of purchase for non-custom items that are still in their original packaging, and have not been damaged. The customer is responsible for any shipping or additional costs associated with returning or exchanging the item.

We regret that we are not able to offer returns or refunds on custom orders, including all customized puzzles, custom name puzzles, special requests, Custom Creations, and commissions.

For products with defects in material or craftsmanship, please contact and include photos of the affected area(s). Each instance will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

Please note that there may be some discoloration of the puzzle over time, which may be especially noticeable on lightly-coloured pieces. This is caused by the natural finish, and is not considered a defect with the product.

Each puzzle is cut by hand, and as such, pieces will only fit into the puzzle they were originally cut from, into the space they were cut from, and in the direction/orientation they were cut.

As these puzzles are made from wood products, you may notice knots or discolouration in the wood grain. These natural features of the wood add to the uniqueness of our products, and contribute to the one-of-a-kind charm of all of our puzzles.
