Terms of Sale
We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and checks (which must be made out to "Laughlin Designs"). Payment must be received in full before products will be shipped. All prices and specifications are subject to change.
Once you place an order by credit card, your card will be charged within 7 days. This will happen even if the merchandise is a special or custom order and has not yet shipped. The reason is that charge card companies only authorize a card for 7 days and require that we make the charge to your card within that period. For your protection we do not keep your charge information so we are unable to charge a card later or in part. Should it become necessary to cancel your order after the charge is made your card will be credited or a check issued. In addition, most custom orders are both non-returnable and require payment up front. Most customers don't have a problem with my policy on these types of orders, but if this is a concern for you please make alternate arrangements when you place your order.
Laughlin Designs strives to offer the most competitive online pricing. If you find a lower price elsewhere for a new, identical item, just call or email and we will match the price. Plus, you will get free shipping and no sales tax in most cases. This price match guarantee does not apply to auction sites or clearance items, and we reserve the right to limit the quantity. Not valid in combination with other discounts or for previously placed orders.
Most UNOPENED merchandise can be returned within 15 days after delivery for a refund or exchange, with no restocking fees. (Some items are non-returnable; see "Custom Items" below.) However, shipping costs are non-refundable. Upon returning merchandise you will incur the full cost of shipping, even if you originally received free or discounted shipping. All items must be returned unused, in perfect condition, refolded in their original packaging, and with a valid return authorization. BEFORE MAKING A RETURN please request return authorization via phone or email. You will be given a return authorization number that must be written on the outside of the package to ensure that you receive proper credit for the return. A minimum restocking fee of 10% applies to any OPENED merchandise. Once an order is placed and in progress with the supplier a cancellation will be treated as a return. A waiver of shipping costs and restocking fees will be given in the rare event that merchandise is incorrect or defective.
Tips to Help Avoid Returns
- Check the color in person. We offer free fabric samples for most items. Please please call or email to request a real swatch if you need to match colors exactly, or if you would just like to see and feel the fabric before buying.
- Double-check the sheet size for your mattress. Sheet sizing is specified on our site for each product; please measure your mattress before ordering to ensure compatibility. Fitted sheet pockets need to be at least 3" deeper than the actual height of your mattress so that you can tuck the sheet under.
Returns: Special Restrictions on Down Products
Most manufacturers will not accept returned, used, down products due to health regulations. Therefore, to help guide you in your selection we have links on our down comforter pages from the manufacturers giving tips on how to select a down comforter that is right for you. In addition, when it doubt it is advised that the lighter weight choice be selected. The manufacturers can add down if the comforter is not warm enough but cannot remove down if it is too warm.

In order to bring you lower prices we do not keep most items in stock, and so orders are placed with the manufacturer as they arrive. Once we receive your items from the manufacturer, we inspect the order, re-package it and send it on it's happy way to you, our customer. Orders will be fulfilled within 2-6 weeks or sooner, unless the manufacturer notifies us of a delay, in which case we will notify you by email. If you need an item by a certain date, please inform us in the comments box when placing your order or by email. If we cannot meet that deadline we will notify you and your card will not be charged.
