Pre-orders & Back-orders
At times you may be offered the ability to purchase items from the store or online site that are currently on back-order or pre-order. These are items that we know we will be receiving from the manufacturer in the foreseeable future. We offer no guarantees on product availability or date and time of delivery. Most factors in delivery time fall on the burden of the manufacturer. It is with your understanding that you are purchasing these items knowingly that we do not have them physically in stock and that you except the unknown wait time. Back-orders and pre-orders are fulfilled in the order we receive them when supply becomes available from the manufacturer. Black Lab Imaging makes every effort to communicate with the manufacturer for updates in delivery times and when possible, relay this information to you, the buyer. If you choose to cancel the order you will be reimbursed your order total, minus the credit card processing fee of 2.9% which is non-refundable by Square (credit card processor). You can avoid this fee by opting for an item exchange or store credit in the form of an E-Gift card. The only exception to this practice would be if the return was due to an error on the part of Black Lab Imaging, LLC.
Black Lab Imaging® reserves the right to request identification of anyone making a return. A minimum restocking fee of 15% may be charged if the return falls outside the parameters we have listed above. Refunds will generally be in the same form as the original payment. However, when the item was purchased with cash, debit, or a check for more than $100, the refund will be in the form of a check mailed to you within 10 business days. Credit card refunds require that you have the exact credit card that was used for the purchase to receive credit. Due to changes in Square’s refund policy, you will be responsible for the credit card processing fee of 2.9% and this will be deducted from your refund, the only exception to this practice would be if the return was due to an error on the part of Black Lab Imaging, LLC. To avoid the 2.9% processing fee, you may opt for store credit in the form of an E-Gift card.

Black Lab Imaging is not responsible for personal data or unexposed film left in returned items. We reserve the right to refuse any return. Policy subject to change at any time without notice.
