Our return and cancellation policy in plain english

BookBaby guarantees the customer's satisfaction with cover and text proofs. If BookBaby cannot satisfy the customer, BookBaby will refund the entire deposit amount if customer wants to cancel the project. However, once proofs are approved BookBaby will charge for all work and services performed, even if the project is subsequently canceled.

BookBaby warrants that material produced and delivered by BookBaby meets BookBaby' standard specifications for the material or such other specifications as described on our website and meets generally accepted industry standards.

All custom-printed BookBaby products are unconditionally guaranteed against defects in quality and workmanship. If any custom-manufactured product produced by BookBaby from or through the use of materials is found to be defective in quality, or is shipped or labeled in error, BookBaby will replace or repair defective product and/or correct error in shipment or labeling at its own expense or, at BookBaby' option, refund to customer part or all of the purchase paid to BookBaby, on the condition that a) written notice of such defect or error is received by BookBaby at its office within thirty (30) days after shipment by BookBaby to customer, and b) the defect or error did not result from a defect or error in the materials supplied by or on behalf of the customer. If said notice is not received by BookBaby within the date indicated above, BookBaby will be deemed to be released by customer from any and all liability.
