Rule 3

Product Descriptions: We strive to provide accurate and detailed descriptions of our handmade items. However, please note that, due to the nature of handmade products, there may be slight variations in colour, size, and design. These include, but are not limited to, graphics, fonts, foils, and ribbons used. We do not guarantee the accuracy of the colours displayed on your device. Our candles are unscented and advertised as dripless, with proper handling and positioning. Since wax is all delicate in nature, minimal imperfections include, but are not limited to, small bumps, rough parts, uneven sides, and small blemishes. Mipin Australia uses high-quality prints with hand-pressed foils embedded on the wax surface. Due to this process, occasionally, foils do not adhere completely to the prints. These are also unavoidable during the process of creating handmade products. 

4.1 Proofing. A proofing or design layout will be sent to customers for all personalised items within three (3) business days. Mipin Australia allows two rounds of editing at no cost. Every edit corresponds to at least 2 to 3 business days. After the allowed two rounds of editing, Mipin reserves the right to charge a customer a design fee ranging from $0-$5 depending on the extent of changes per design to cover the additional time, effort, and expertise added to creating Mipin items.
