Policies and Practices of Lee U Ceramics
Be aware that photos are never a true representation of color, which changes appearance under various light conditions-natural, incandescent, fluorescent-and may look different on various device/computer screens. Be aware that glaze (matte, glossy, metallic etc.), texture/form/surface detail, and size may not convey accurately in photographs.
Make sure to note the measurements of the piece. It is highly recommended that a ruler be used to visualize the size of an item. Items like little trinket dishes or small biz card holders--any small piece--may look a bit larger or brighter in a photo (especially close-ups) than it is in actuality. Measurements are approximate and reflect the overall space the item takes up. Therefore, a curved free-form shape that is 1" on one side, 2" in another, and spans to 3" diagonally may be sized as "app. 3".
Clay bodies and glazes are rated non-toxic and food safe by their manufacturers, unless otherwise noted. No claims are made by LeeUCeramics. Do not subject the piece to stove top, oven, microwave, grill, dishwasher, chemicals, or freezing temperatures. Hand clean with soap and water.
Shipping via USPS or UPS is included (at cost) in the price of each piece. There are no handling or packaging fees. LUC uses protective packing materials, recycled/repurposed as much as possible.
Expect a minimum of 3 business days, in-house, to process the order. The shipping time is in addition to the in-house processing. LUC is not responsible for any shipping issues; goods are insured. Consult the USPS and UPS for their terms of agreement.
Please contact Lee U Ceramics to discuss the situation if you are not satisfied for any reason. An even exchange or a credit based on purchase price may be offered. Shipping of approved exchanges or returns is at customer expense.
