To get you your Product(s) as fast as possible, orders are processed immediately upon submission. If you need to cancel an order, please contact us immediately. Orders we are not able to cancel prior to production will not be eligible for a refund.
If you would like to request a refund or cancel an order, or need help with a Difficult Surface, please contact us through the chat feature of the App or by emailing us at email@example.com.
