Will my strap be an original, one of a kind, or will you copy it for someone else?

Can I return a Medina-Made strap?
You may return a Medina-Made strap for alteration or other adjustments that are possible, depending on what that is. A small fee may be incurred, plus postage. However, because the strap is custom made I cannot give you a full refund and take the strap back.
Are the buckles you use high quality?
One thing to understand here is quality versus beauty. There are many buckles out there that are very expensive and pretty, but should only be used for looks on a dress belt. I do my best to find buckles that are both high quality and ornate.
Will you copy anything I request?
he short answer to this is no, as that can be a good way of getting in legal trouble because of copyright issues. I will not do it if i feel it will be a problem in the future. However, it won't hurt to ask, though.
How long will my order take?
4-6 weeks from the day your payment is received is when your customized strap will arrive. If you are ordering an in stock strap, it will take 2-4 weeks.. Julius A. Medina does all of his work in the order that payment is received.
