Refunds and Exchanges

We will accept returns on retail merchandise within 30 calendar days of the date of purchase.
Your item must be unused and in the original packaging, with the original receipt.

Any shrink wrapping and/or original packaging around the item, (excluding the box that we have shipped it to you in), must be unopened and undamaged. The buyer is responsible for any Return Shipping costs/fees.

If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value, and must recognize that we may not accept their request for a full refund. Please keep in mind that colors may vary slightly on different computer monitors.

Examples of accepted returns:

Product was the incorrect size– (wrong width of deck, incorrect shirt size, skate pads do not fit..)

Ordered the wrong item by mistake– Sometimes we have several items listed at once that are visually very similar, but are actually different sizes, or are made from different materials. An example would be ordering a 8.25” wide skateboard deck, when you meant to order an 8.5” with the same graphic.

Factory Defect– Although it is unlikely, and we inspect all of our items prior to shipping, if an item were to have a defect from the factory or the supplier we purchased it from, we will offer a full refund, or if we have one available, a replacement item. In this instance, we would need the item to be shipped back to us so that we can inspect it and confirm with our supplier whether or not it was a factory error/ defect.

Examples of Returns that are NOT accepted:

Product has been opened and shows potential signs of use– ie: the item is returned to us without its factory wrapping or packaging intact, and/or has scratching, scuffs or other signs of wear.

This includes clothing and apparel. All original Tags and/or other packaging must be present and unopened. The items must not have any damage, and cannot have been worn for any period of time.

More than 30 days have passed since the original calendar date of purchase- We will not accept returns beyond 30 days of the original date of purchase. The customer must contact us about a return before the time limit is up, and our items must arrive safely back to us before 30 days have passed from the original date of purchase.

Item is Damaged: We will not accept returns on items that have been damaged, opened, used, or otherwise depreciated of value. The items must be returned in their original shipping box that we sent to you, and packed in the same way as to avoid any damage during shipping. We will NOT accept a return if it is damaged in the shipping process due to faulty, or poorly packed materials.

There are other Returns that do not fall into our specific policy guidelines listed for accepted vs not accepted returns. These Returns will be handled on a case to case basis, and we do not guarantee refunds for any of these instances.

The Refund Process:
Contact us as soon as possible via Email at: skate@nuclear-ink.com
Please include your reason for requesting a return, and a detailed explanation. If your return is due to any kind of defect or similar, please include detailed photos documenting the issue.

We will review your request and if deemed acceptable, will help you to continue the process. Please do not ship anything back to us before we answer your request.

Next, you will need to repackage the item, in its original box and packing material (as to avoid any damage). We are not responsible for any damage due to faulty packaging, or poorly packaged returns. Make sure that you include a return shipping address on the return label, and you MUST include the original receipt in the box.

The customer is responsible for any and all return shipping costs. You will need to purchase a return shipping label, affix it to the box, and drop it off at your local shipping carrier. Please provide us with any applicable tracking information.

Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund. (See accepted vs non accepted returns section above). If you are approved, we will send out a new, and updated receipt showing details of your return.

Accepted Returns:
Once your return has been received and accepted, we will issue you a refund via our credit card processor, Square. Funds will be issued back to your original payment method.

Average Refund Timeline via our Credit Card processor, Square:
Square’s full refund time frame typically takes 2-7 business days. Once the refund is processed and sent to the customer’s card issuing bank, it can take another 2-7 business days (depending on the bank’s processing speeds) for the refund to post to the customer’s account.
