Damage Criteria


If one of your items or books is damaged, you can contact us (help@arcanesociety.com) to file a claim and we will ask you to provide photos of the damaged item. If we have the items in stock, we will then be able to send out a replacement item to you.

Please keep in mind that the criteria listed is for guidance purposes and each claim will be reviewed manually on a case-to-case basis. Please note that blemishes to packaging or damaged packaging for the items will not be considered part of a damaged item if the item itself is okay.

We can only accept exchange/replacement claims within 14 days from the date you received your order. All exchanges/replacements will be at the discretion of our customer support team. We reserve the right to deny a replacement for any person abusing the return policy for profiteering. 

In the rare event we cannot replace an item, a partial refund will be offered.
