Refunds & Exchanges

Portrait Doll Service & Made To Order
These items are cut & made to order. An extensive design & creative process is undertaken with each order. Exchanges &/or refunds on these items do not apply once design approval has been received by Upper Dhali from the client.

Cancellation of your bespoke order prior to design approval will incur a $50 cancellation fee. If Layby was your payment method, layby terms & conditions apply.

All made to order products are extensively photographed once completed. These images are sent to the client for approval and acceptance of your order. Should the customer find any finish unsatisfactory on receipt that was apparent at approval stage, all rectifications required are at customer cost, including postage.
