Welcome to Lapaki Designs! My name is Tara, and I like to make belt buckles. My goal is to share a little bit of happiness and fun with each buckle.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
I want you to be super happy with your awesome new belt. I also want the Earth to be happy and I try to be as environmentally friendly as possible. I don't use toxic industrial sealants in my buckles, and I have an awesome buckle recycling policy:

1. Any buckle can be exchanged at any time for a 60% discount, by either a coupon or a rebate, on your next order.

The only catch is that the metal hardware of the buckle needs to be in good and reusable condition - meaning it still works the same, even if it has some scratches around the sides. You pay to ship the buckle back to me. I will do custom buckles if I don't have anything in stock that you want - custom buckles can take up to a week and half to be completed.

*Returns and Exchanges*

I will do returns or exchanges if you are not satisfied within 20 days from the date of purchase. Any refunds will be given on the purchase price only, not on shipping. I will do returns or exchanges after 20 days, if you received the buckle as a gift and didn't receive it when it was purchased, but refunds can only be given through Paypal to the original account or credit card used to make the purchase.

Please email or convo me for details before shipping anything back for a return or exchange!
I only accept Paypal, but you can use your credit or debit card with Paypal and don't need an account yourself.
Items are shipped within 3 business days of payment. I ship via USPS first class mail with delivery confirmation. This includes a tracking number, but only for orders within the US. I will ship via Priority Mail for larger orders, if it is more economical.

International orders may incur customs duties that you are responsible for.

I try to re-use materials for packaging as much as possible to reduce waste. Gift wrapping is available upon request and if you want it shipped to an address that is different than your Paypal address, let me know in the "message to seller" when you place your order.

Everything comes from a smoke and pet free household! My buckles have been field-tested for durability in Portland, OR and St. Louis, MO.
