Return Policy

Our Guarantee — 100% Satisfaction.

Our Guarantee — 100% Satisfaction. Blick’s guarantee policy dates back to 1911, and we have no reason to change it. If you are not completely satisfied with the quality of the merchandise you receive, you are entitled to a full replacement or refund of the merchandise value up to one year from time of purchase. Details and limitations of our policy are listed below.

Blick Return Policy

Blick will refund the full merchandise value up to one year from the time of purchase. For faster processing, we recommend items be returned within 30 days of receipt and in their original packaging and resalable condition. Return freight that is sent back to Blick is the responsibility of the customer unless: a) Blick Customer Service is notified within 30 days of receipt, AND b) the item received arrived damaged, OR c) the item received was not what was ordered. Factory direct merchandise returned as a result of a customer order error will be subject to a minimum 15% restocking fee and is the responsibility of the customer. Blick is not responsible for any lost or stolen packages.

How to Return Items

When returning stock items of your choice, include a copy of the completed return form (found on the back of the packing slip). If you do not have a return form, you can download it here:

Return shipping can be arranged with the shipper of your choice; however, we do encourage you to use a shipper with a reliable tracking system such as FedEx or UPS. If the shipment is lost or damaged on its way back to Blick, you may follow up with the shipper for claim resolution.

Once a return package has been delivered to our distribution center, please allow 2 weeks for the return to be reviewed and processed.

When returning factory-shipped or truck-shipped items, please contact Blick Customer Service for return authorization instructions.

Canceled Orders

If you cancel or change an order after it has been placed, you can be assessed up to a 15% restocking fee. Items must be returned within 30 days of receipt and in their original packaging and resalable condition. For merchandise valued at $300 or more that has correctly shipped and is undamaged, a 15% restocking fee will apply. This applies to organizations or schools that either 1) cannot accept delivery of the product or 2) no longer need it. Please contact Blick Customer Service for more information.

Upon Receipt of Your Order

Be sure to count parcels and inspect the shipment before signing the delivery receipt. If damage or shortage is apparent upon receiving your shipment, please note it on the delivery receipt. Have the delivery driver sign the receipt and verify that there is damage. Save the damaged package or carton for inspection.

Open all packages immediately and inspect merchandise to verify it is in good condition. If concealed damage (damage to materials inside a package with no external damage evident) is uncovered, notify us at once. Pictures of the damage is encouraged for all truck shipments.

Check your merchandise against the packing slip. If an overage or shortage exists, we require you notify Blick Customer Service within 30 days after receipt of your merchandise.
