FAQs - DIY Services

Question? We've Got Answers

  • Can I purchase rubber stamps or stickers separately?

    No.  We only offer our DIY rubber stamps and stickers as part of a DIY package, which also includes discs and chipboard sleeves or wallets.

  • What’s the turnaround time for DIY orders?

    Typical turnaround time for DIY orders is 7-9 business days, not including shipping time.  A rush may be possible, although we cannot guarantee delivery dates.

  • What recommendations do you have for creating rubber stamp art?

    It’s best to keep your font size to 6 point and above.  Avoid using “thin” fonts.  Line width should be no less than 1 point.  Overall, you don’t want too much detail in your design.  Bold is good (think block print art).  Ideal resolution is 500 dpi.

  • How do I submit my master for DIY orders?

    For domestic orders, you can either send WAV files or we can provide you with a prepaid Fed Ex airbill to use for overnighting your master to our San Francisco facility. You will have the option to choose once we receive your disc artwork. For international orders, we can only accept WAV files or mailed in masters.  DVD masters can only be accepted on disc.

    If you are sending WAV files, make sure they files are saved as 16 bit, 44.1 MHz WAV files.  Name each file with the track number (e.g. 01_MySong.wav).  Place all the tracks into one folder and zip it before uploading.  Email us at cdrep@groovehouse.com once the files have been uploaded.  Groove House Records cannot be held responsible for errors which may occur during the transfer of files.

    Note that DIY is different from our Fast Tracks service and you cannot upload audio files to your Fast Tracks account for DIY orders.

  • How do I reorder a DIY project?

    Place the order online, as you would for a new order (there’s no difference in price.)  Then forward your order confirmation to us, letting us know that you want to reorder.

  • What is your return policy for eco-sleeves and eco-wallets?

    Returns of defective products only are accepted within 10 days of receipt of merchandise. Items being returned must be unused. Clearance items, sale items, and special orders are not returnable. Defective merchandise will be replaced with the identical item, or the purchase price will be refunded.  A 15% restocking fee will be charged for returns of non-defective merchandise.

    Natural variations in the color and texture of products are not considered defects. The color of our 100% recycled sleeves and wallets may change from one lot to the next, and cannot be guaranteed to match the image shown on screen.

    Please contact us before returning any merchandise. No returns without authorization will be accepted. All returns are to be shipped freight prepaid. Please allow at least fifteen (15) working days to process merchandise returns. Any items shipped as part of an exchange will not be charged additional shipping and handling.

    Carefully pack merchandise with a copy of the receipt and return authorization and send to:

    Groove House Records
    5029 Serrania Ave.
    Woodland Hills, CA 91364

    Order Cancellations
    All sales are final after confirming an order with us. Any cancellation made after the order confirmation (regardless of whether it has shipped) will be charged a 10% cancellation fee and any shipping charges incurred. If an item will be out of stock for an extended period, we will allow cancellation of an order without charge.

    Discrepancies in Shipment
    All missing items or errors from your order must be reported to us within five (5) business days of receipt. We are under no obligation to ship any discrepancies after this period.
