If you receive an item that is damaged, we will try our best to replace it for you. Please fill out our Customer Support form within 14 days of receipt of the item and we can have a replacement sent out to you. Be ready to provide photos of the damaged item/s and the box, showing the shipping label.
There are a few things we are unable to replace:
- We are unable to replace a product if only the packaging is damaged. We are also unable to provide the packaging of an individual product if yours was missing.
- We are unable to replace promotional or spoiler cards if they are damaged or missing.
- We are unable to replace slipcases in cases where the books themselves don't meet our damage guidelines.
All replacements are at the discretion of Illumicrate customer support.
You may be asked one or more of the following before a replacement is agreed to:
- To destroy your damaged item before we can provide a replacement. Please do not dispose of your item before receiving confirmation we are able to replace it.
- For additional photos of the issue.
- To attempt an at-home fix for a cosmetic issue with a book or item.
In the rare event that we cannot replace an item due to a lack of stock, a partial refund will be offered.
