Return Policy

General Policy:  We accept returns for a refund or replacement for all except custom products. (Giclee prints or plaque mounted prints are made to order, and therefore are custom products. see our return policy for Custom Products below).

The shipping and packaging cost can only be refunded in the cases where we shipped a defective product.

To be eligible for refund or replacement, you must notify Newport Geographic within ten (10) days of receipt of the product.

Additionally, refunds or replacements can only be made for products that are returned in their original and 100% re-sellable condition.

You can request a RAN by emailing us at Customer Service [at] newportgeographic [dot] com or calling us at (949) 528 6668. You will need to provide your order number, item number and customer name.

Damaged products: If a product is visibly damaged at time of delivery then refuse it immediately and call our Customer Service (949) 528 6668. If the damage is not found until after the packaging is opened contact the carrier immediately and provide the information requested. Once the claim has been reported to the carrier you will need to contact us to provide us with the details so we can follow through with the claim.

Custom products: In the case of a custom product (this includes Giclee prints, plaque mounts and images printed on tile), we can only offer replacement and only in the case of faulty workmanship or where there was a defect in manufacturing the product.
