Upon receipt of an order, if any item has been received with no tags, customers should notify us by email to firstname.lastname@example.org on the day of delivery if they wish to return the item.
We strongly recommend that you use a recorded-delivery service or a courier that will offer proof of delivery. Proof of posting is not proof of receipt and all goods remain the responsibility of the customer until they are received back by Autograph. Please ensure that you have adequate insurance in place. Please wrap the package safely and securely.

We do not exchange goods and would ask that you return your item in accordance with our Returns Policy above and re-order the replacement on our website All items must be returned to us in accordance with our Returns Policy before a refund is issued.

Refunds will be credited to the original purchaser's credit/debit card excluding shipping charges. International customs duties and sales taxes are non-refundable.
As an alternative to a credit/debit card refund, you can request a Autograph store credit voucher that can be used against future purchases. Please complete the returns note fully so that we know if you require a refund to your card or a store credit voucher.
