Publisher’s Guarantee

Unsatisfied? We hope that is never the case, but in the event that you are not entirely satisfied with all materials sold by Abrams Learning Trends, we invite you to return your materials for a refund, credit, or replacement as long as you return them within 30 days of receipt. Hide the stamps and markers though, folks! For a full refund, items still have to be in saleable condition, which means no writing or stray marks.

All materials in sets or packaged format must be returned complete as sold.


Materials in saleable condition may be returned only with prior written authorization from Abrams Learning Trends. For authorization, contact our Customer Service Department in Austin, Texas. To expedite our ability to serve you, please include as much detail as possible, including titles, item numbers, and quantity of materials to be returned. If possible, also include the date of the original invoice and invoice number.

We will respond with return authorization and shipping instructions as quickly as possible. Returns must be shipped prepaid to our Austin, Texas, warehouse at 16310 Bratton Lane, Suite 250, Austin, Texas 78728-2403. No CODs please. Items with writing or stray marks or school identification stamps are not eligible for a refund.
