Golden Moments by REI Store Policy

Return & Replacement Policy

Return of Gift Plaque 

Understandably, personalized items cannot be accepted for return, unless there is a manufacturing error or product defect.  We want your order to be made just the way you want it! We understand that everyone makes mistakes (including us!) Please review your personalized information before submitting your order.  We strongly encourage our customers to carefully review the proof before signing off.  Check spelling, dates, and names carefully.

Our products are customized for each customer and engraving mistakes are checked for accuracy according to the customer’s supplied text. If there is an error caused on our end, we must be notified within 48 hours of the package delivery. We will replace the incorrect item at our sole expense within 2 business days and ship out using the same shipping method selected for the original order.

Customer errors are replaced as quickly as possible, and billed again with a courtesy discount. Customers are ultimately responsible for correct spelling of names, and custom information on engraving proofs.

Return for, defective or damaged gift.

We must be notified of any damages, defects or other problems within 48 hours of the receipt with a photo proof by email to issue a replacement. If the photo proof is not sufficient, we will require an actual return of the damaged piece(s). In this case, a prepaid return label for the claimed items will be provided by email.
