Return Policy

  • Returns/exchanges can be made no later than four (4) weeks from delivery date for credit toward materials from our store. Delivery date is determined by the delivery method provided.
  • Please plan ahead in placing orders so you can open and confirm delivered materials within the four-week time period. This policy applies year-round, even during summer months when schools are not in session. If you are ordering for a school, please confirm receipt of your order if it arrives when school is out.
  • Items sold in sets, packs, or kits cannot be returned separately; the entire set/pack/kit must be returned.
  • Unless you immediately report to us that materials were damaged in shipping, all items must be returned in resale condition, as determined by CHARACTER COUNTS!.
  • Shipping/handling charges are non-refundable.
  • All orders will be considered to be correct, complete and to have been received in good condition unless we are notified to the contrary within 4 weeks of receipt, as determined by delivery records.
  • We cannot be responsible for duplication of orders submitted more than once. Please do not fax or email your order if an original will be mailed to us. If you submit an order more than one time and the order is duplicated, you will be responsible for either paying for the merchandise or for shipping it back to us via a carrier with full tracking, and will be responsible for any damaged merchandise. Please call us if you need to verify receipt of an order.
  • All digital music sales are final once downloaded from our server, though we will provide you with a replacement for sales of defective music products.
