Processing Times, Refund Policies and Mask Disclaimer:

** Note REFUND POLICY Is different for each represented label below. This is due to the difference in merchant handlers or Kimmy, who processes her handmade/ handsewn custom order items herself.

Processing times. Refund policies, etc,  

  • LOVEKimmy Designs, 
  • LOVEKimmy Designs (Custom/Handmade), and
  • LKD Couture

LOVEKimmy Designs Merchandise: Merchandise by this tier is processed within 5-7 business days.  Processing is typically much sooner, however, once released for delivery note that the mail system has been unpredictable for quite some time. Although I would be happy to help track any packages, you would be able to handle that yourself with the provided tracking number. It is the responsibility of  the mailing system for stalled or slow deliver, & lost packages once the package is released to them.  The action you can take on your part is to file a claim with the mailing institution responsible.

This merchandise is replaceable in case of any manufacturer defect and exchangeable within 14 business days of delivery date dictated by tracking number. If wrong sizes were given by buyer, there will be a %15 of total (including shipping) exchange or restocking fee at which time, a return shipping label will be provided.  Once returned item is able to be tracked in transit, your exchange will be processed.  Reminder, processing time for made to order items is 5-7 business days.

Due to the nature of the masks, masks are NOT returnable unless for a fault in the construction of the product before or upon arrival.  In this case, the mask is exchangeable within 14 days of delivery date dictated by tracking number. You will need to send a photo of the defect to Kimberly@ThreadedNeedle.shop.

LOVEKimmy Customs (Custom Made/ Handsewn Items)-  Due to high demand and time involved for each handmade item, processing times are up to 6 weeks unless otherwise confirmed.  Exchangeable within 14 business days of delivery date dictated by tracking number if there is a defect. If the defect can be fixed, the seller chooses to have an option to do this which supersedes any other option.  Item is not exchangeable, otherwise, or if wrong sizes were given by buyer, please be fair to the time, effort, and the overall cost that goes into each item. The Threaded Needle Shop has the right to choose not to do business with any entity it chooses, i.e. If the entity has been difficult, with unrealistic expectations and demands.

LKD Couture

LKD Couture items are all handmade and are processed within 5 business days unless it is a handcrafted item which include all leather products.  All of LKD Couture products are made to order, therefore, considered custom products. Contrado is our merchant partner and we have adopted their terms for returns and refunds.

Custom PRODUCTS

Our Return Policy

We want you to be happy with your order, we are determined to have each and every purchase result in a happy customer. Because everything is handmade, there is some potential for human error. Usually, our quality control department will pick this up and everything will be handled before your order is even dispatched. However, on the rare case that something does slip through, all you need to do is let us know. Take a look at the details below on how to do that:

If a product is faulty in any way, you can return it within 14 days. Contact our customer services team using the contact form, quoting your name and order number.

A customer service representative will then talk you through the returns procedure which can often be eased by providing a digital image of the fault (along with a clear description of the problem) in an email to our customer support team.

  • In many cases, remedy action can be taken as soon as substantiation of the claim is clear via email
  • If the fault cannot be verified over email, you may need to return the item to us for inspection
  • In that instance, a determination can then be made as to the state of the product
  • Please do not send your products back to without contacting a member of our team first

May we remind you to review the terms that you agreed to at the time of purchase. These are available at any time on our website.
 

Please note we work in accordance with these provisions:

  • Non-Faulty Goods: We cannot accept returns of non-faulty goods because the products have been personalized or customized specifically for you.
  • Faulty Goods: To return faulty goods you need to first contact a member of our Customer Services Team using the contact form.

We will only acknowledge returned goods if they are sent using Royal Mail 'Signed For' Recorded delivery so you have proof of delivery. You will have to meet the delivery costs of returning the products, although we will refund the postage at our discretion once the item in question is rechecked. If we are at fault, then we will reimburse Royal Mail 'Signed For' Recorded delivery postage costs.

It is only when we receive the item in its original state, that Contrado Imaging Ltd. will redo or recommend a remedy for a faulty item.

Please note: if the product is in an used condition, we will not be able to offer you a remedy for faulty workmanship where we may repair the item. Where there is a minor fault, we may suggest an alternative remedy.
 

Our Refund Policy

Before you receive your items - Things don’t always go to plan, and we know that. That’s why we wait 30 minutes after you place your order before we start making it. Within these 30 minutes, you are welcome to contact us if you wish to edit or if you change your mind. If you have any questions about your order or have any doubts about your design get in touch with our friendly customer service team who will be more than happy to help. Within these 30 minutes, if you contact us to cancel the order, we will be able to issue a full refund.

When you place an order with Contrado Imaging Ltd. through any of its trading names, it’s not just a product that you are purchasing, but a service as well. We handmake every product and personalize it to order, so as soon as we start production of your bespoke items, we have already invested into the ink, transfer paper, materials and the workforce time specifically for your order. This means that if you wish to cancel after the production of your order has begun, we would be unable to offer a full refund, however alternative options will be discussed with you and a partial refund may be possible. A customer service team member will be able to advise further.

No matter what, we will always be able to help you. Contact our amazing customer service team and have a chat with them if you have any issues with your order, whether it is before or after we have started production.

After you receive your items We want you to be happy with your order, and if for any reason you’re not, please do let us know. We value your feedback. As all products are personalized to order, these are never re-saleable, which means that there are some things you need to check before you’ve placed your order, as we won’t be able to do anything about them afterwards.

  • Check Text - If there is text in your design then check the spelling of everything before you submit. We don’t personally check every word that comes through and cannot be held responsible for any spelling errors that are featured in your design.
     
  • Check Sizes –Every page has details on the sizing of a product (especially clothing – which comes with a full size-chart) so make sure that you order in the right size. Check body measurements if you need to rather than using the size range as it is more accurate. If you have any questions please contact us, we do everything we can to make sure you have all the information you need to be able to order the right size.
     
  • Preview Your Design – You are able to preview your design in the interface on our website, allowing you to see what your finished item(s) will look like. Use this feature, double check everything is as desired and in the right size/shape/position. Again, if you are unsure of anything, please get in touch with our customer service team. Please note that this is only a preview to give you a general idea of how your product will come out and you should always refer to the design interface (see the ruler, bleed area, cutting or stitching lines, etc) to correctly set up your design.

Because of the personalized nature of the products that you order with Contrado Imaging Ltd., we look at each and every order on a case by case basis. We will always do everything within our power to find a solution to remedy the situation, as your satisfaction is so important to us.

If you wish to raise any concern within 14 days of receiving your order, please use our contact form and provide your order number and a short summary along with pictures. Our dedicated team will get back to you on average within 12 working hours. As per law, the goods cannot be returned because they were made according to your specifications or were personalized by you. We may, at our discretion, look into other solutions.
