Return Policies

Eligible Returns

• You can return Group resources directly to us, provided you bought them directly from us. If your resources were purchased from one of our wonderful retailers, please work with them to handle your returns.

• We go the extra mile to ensure our resources arrive in good condition…but things happen. In those rare instances, just give us a call at 800.447.1070 within 30 days of receipt for a refund or replacement.

• Did the wrong items arrive? If so, call us at 800.447.1070 so we can make it right.

• Digital products or services that include downloadable content are non-returnable once content has been delivered. All sales are final. See complete Terms of Use for more details.

• Returned product must be in resellable condition: unopened in original packaging with no stickers or markings.

• Returns of Value Packs, Kits, or Sets must have ALL original components in sellable condition. There will not be partial or pro-rated credit issued for incomplete packages. For example, if you only use two of four items in a Value Pack, Kit, or Set we will not issue credit for the two unused items.

Customers are responsible for shipping costs incurred to return resources to Group.

We encourage you to use a shipping method that provides a tracking number and secure packaging for your return. We are not responsible for items lost or damaged in the return shipping process.
