Customized goods

Custom goods are products which are made to order as per your specifications and do not have a ready market. The Maker invests in inputs handpicked for your order and makes the goods available as per the demand. In such cases, it becomes inequitable to stipulate a return for replacement or exchange. However, under the Direct Create terms and conditions, Makers strive to satisfy the buyer to the maximum extent possible, by making small changes or alterations to size or other specifications which are practical and possible without incurring substantial additional resources in that process. Hence, any additional costs for shipping, returns and modifications etc. shall be reimbursed by the buyer.
