CUSTOM MADE PRODUCTS
Because our products are custom made for you, it is not possible to return them for credit.
If a product that we have delivered to you does not conform to your order, Montreal Stencil will repair, replace or exchange the product(s) and assume responsibility for the transport costs. You must communicate with our customer service so that the paperwork can be prepared and followed up by our employees in order to correct the problem.
Any return that has no prior approval will be REFUSED (Montreal Stencil will not pay any transport charges). We will use our own transport services to pick up authorised returns and we will assume the charges.
Returns of unused stock items that are kept in inventory are subject to a 15% restocking charge. Please return the items in their original packaging using your own transport.
SPECIAL ORDERS OF STOCK PRODUCT NOT KEPT IN INVENTORY
If you return an item that we special ordered from one of our suppliers all delivery costs including delivery back to our supplier and any restocking fees will be charged to the client. Certain special ordered products are not returnable. Please contact customer service.
CREDIT NOTE POLICY
Any error recognised by Montreal Stencil on one of our invoices will be corrected by the use of a credit note that can be applied against the original invoice.
