Terms and Conditions

These Terms and Conditions govern all transactions between the customer and merchant, 49 Design. They should be referred to explicitly for guidance in handling and claim which may arise from said transaction.

We utilize USPS for nearly all shipments except bulk and wholesale. You order will NOT be shipped until your address is verified through the USPS system. You will be responsible for re-shipping charges if you fail to provide a correct USPS address. Providing an incorrect shipping address and having your merchandise returned to us DOES NOT afford you the option of a refund in any case. Merchandise you order that is returned to us will be held for 60 days maximum from the date of return receipt. If it is not claimed within 60 days, it will be considered abandoned property. You understand you forfeit all claims to your merchandise after 60 days and may not be able to have it reshipped after 60 days if you fail to provide a correct shipping address, pay for any levied shipping charges. We make custom items and manufacture one-of-a-kind items. Your order is a contract for us to make the items. A refund requires us to try to find someone with your size and color preferences which is not likely to happen, meaning we are left with unsellable product. Items made by one of our contracted manufacturers can take 3 to 4 weeks for delivery.

Our policy lasts 30 days. If 30 days have elapsed since you've received your purchase, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund or exchange.

To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging. You must also have a return authorization number approved by emailing products@49design.org. Your return authorization number must be written on the package when you send it back. Merchandise sent to us with no return authorization will be returned to sender. 

Several types of goods are exempt from being returned. Perishable goods such as food, flowers, newspapers or magazines cannot be returned. We also do not accept products that are intimate or sanitary goods, hazardous materials, or flammable liquids or gases. Used shoes are not refundable. Swimsuits and leggings are not refundable.

We also only provide refunds for coloring issues at our sole discretion. We DO NOT provide refunds for slight variations in color of items between your computer or mobile screen and reality. Perceptions of color are different between people and as with any printed item, your item may vary slightly from how it appears on your computer or mobile screen. We have noticed a huge perception difference among different people with the color red, and we will not be able to guarantee that because something has red in the name that it will match an individual perception of red. We use CMYK graphic coloring and a color in a name does not suggest that entire design may not contain many hues and shades of that color. Any refunds given for coloring will not include shipping.

Additional non-returnable items:
Gift cards
Downloadable software products
Some health and personal care items

To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase.

DO NOT send your purchase back to the manufacturer. YOUR RETURN OR EXCHANGE should be sent to 49 Design, 3801 Chalk Butte Rd Unit 229, Cut Bank, MT 59427. Items returned without a return authorization will be returned to sender.
