If you receive an item that is damaged, we will try our best to replace it for you. Please fill out our Customer Support form within 14 days of receipt of the item and we can have a replacement sent out to you. Be ready to provide photos of the damaged item/s and the box, showing the shipping label.

As a general rule, we are unable to replace a product if only the packaging is damaged. We are also unable to provide packaging of an individual product if yours was missing.

All replacements are at the discretion of Illumicrate customer support.
