If your order is for standard products shipped from stock at quantities less than LOQ (Large Order Quantity), you can cancel your order at any time prior to shipment without charge. Upon receipt of a purchase order, Comic Skin will proceed to facilitate the manufacture and shipment of that order. In doing so, investment of materials and labor is made in the order. Therefore, if you cancel an order that exceeds the LOQ or is customized to your specifications, cancellation of that order can result in a loss to Comic Skin. Therefore, by placing an order for quantities in excess of LOQ or for custom-made products, you are making a commitment to pay Comic Skin for any investments of labor and materials that are made to fulfill that order (LOQâ€™s available upon request). If you cancel such an order prior to shipment, with respect to any unfinished goods, Comic Skin will bill for labor and material costs already incurred; with respect to finished goods, we will ship those products and bill for the originally agreed upon purchase price plus shipping. After shipment, cancellation is no longer available; instead, please refer to the returns policy listed below in the Returns section of these Sales Terms.
