Refund and Return Policy

These are custom, one of a kind products. I do my best to photograph the products from several angles and have included sizes and weight values in the product descriptions. If products are large or oversized it will be noted in the description. I understand that seeing the unique product in person is the best way to know that the product is one you will be happy with. If for any reason the product that is delivered is not what you are expecting, please notify me right away. I will do my best to make it right provided that you let me know promptly. I’m a reasonable guy who wants you to be 100% happy with your INK & TIMBER purchase. This page will help you with a refund and return if necessary.


Most of the items I make are made from wood. Wood is a very durable product which should endure for years and years of use. But it is an organic material which will react to the environment it is in. Don’t leave it in a car on a hot day. Don’t store it in a humid basement. In spite of my best efforts to seal the wood and prevent moisture absorption and loss, there is a limit to how much stress wood can bear. Heat, cold, humidity, and sunlight can all negatively impact the appearance and integrity of wood products. If you keep your pen indoors where climate is controlled, I reasonably expect you will not encounter any problems for the lifetime of your pen.

Our refund and returns policy lasts 30 days. If 30 days have passed since your purchase, we can’t offer you a full refund or exchange.

To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging.

Gift Cards will be honored for online and in-person purchases, but are non-returnable for cash.

To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase.

Please email me to initiate the return and I will give you instructions on returning the item for refund, replacement, or store credit.

There are certain situations where only partial refunds are granted:

  • Item with obvious signs of use.
  • Any item not in its original condition, is damaged or missing parts for reasons not due to our error.
  • Any item that is returned more than 30 days after delivery

Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.

If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card, store account, or original method of payment, within three (3) days.

If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again.

Then contact your credit card company, it may take some time before your refund is officially posted.

Next contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted.

If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet, please contact me by email.

Only regular priced items may be refunded. Sale items cannot be refunded.
