What will my image look like on the actual multi-tool?
Please review your image thoroughly. To prevent the image from being grainy or pixelated, we recommend using files that are at least 1,000 pixels in height and/or length. Avoid imagery with metallic and fluorescent colors as they do not print. The 3D rendering of your design will match the physical product as closely as possible; however, because of different screens and digital platforms, actual colors may have slight deviations. Compatible image file types: PNG, JPG, GIF, SVG, PDF, AI, PSD, and EPS.

How does the Leatherman warranty work?
Our warranty is simple. You broke it, we'll fix it. Please visit our warranty page and follow the instructions to send in your product (NO SHEATH PLEASE).
If you live outside of North America, please follow the international warranty instructions also located on the Warranty page. There you will select your country and send your product to an authorized Leatherman distributor.
I can't live without my Leatherman for even a day. Can you just send me the parts I need?
Our products are designed to be disassembled by factory-trained technicians only. Repaired tools are reassembled (and the pivot posts cemented) to ensure proper tension for optimum tool performance. Attempting to disassemble a Leatherman tool yourself may result in lost components and compromised tool functionality. It may also void your warranty protection.
If my tool isn’t broken or defective, can I still send it in for an e-voucher?
No, the program is intended to give you options when your tool breaks because of manufacturing or material defects, it is not an exchange program.
If I’ve only had my tool for a short time and it breaks, can I get more e-voucher credit than a tool that is older?
We would happy to repair the tool you have or replace it with another one of the same model if it cannot be repaired but we can’t give more credit on an e-voucher.
Can I gift my e-voucher or let someone else use all or part of it?
Yes, if you would like to let someone else use all or part of your e-voucher, you give them your e-voucher number and they would use it just as you would at Leatherman.com.
Can I use the e-voucher for an engraved tool?
Yes, you can spend the credit at Leatherman.com for anything offered on the website, including engraving.
My tool has sentimental value to me, can I still get credit on an e-voucher and keep my broken tool?
No, in order to get credit on an e-voucher, you must return the tools to our warranty department before e-voucher credit is issued. If a tool has sentimental value and you’d like to keep it, we suggest you send it back using our traditional warranty return process and we will do our best to repair it.
I just had my tool fixed by your warranty repair team and now I see that you have an e-voucher program. Can I send my tool back and get an e-voucher instead?
The credit that we issue on e-vouchers are used to offset the expense of fixing your tool and sending back to you. We have already repaired your tool so this program would not apply.
I don’t see my tool on the list of tools for this program, can I still send it back and get a credit on an e-voucher?
If the tool you have needing repair is not on the list of those that apply to this program, you should return it through our traditional warranty return program and we will do our best to repair it and return it to you. If the tool is beyond repair, we will replace it with a model that is equal to it.
Can I send in multiple tools and get an e-voucher for each of them?
You can send in up to 4 tools on this program. Each one must be listed on the application and they should all be sent back in the same package. Once we receive the package, we will issue ONE e-voucher for the sum total of the value for all the tools returned. If you return more than 4 tools, we will do our best to repair those that are not listed on the e-voucher return form and return them to you.
When and how will I get my e-voucher?
Shortly after receiving the tools you sent back to our warranty department, you will receive your e-voucher via email to the address you supplied when you filled out the paperwork.
I don’t have or want to use my email. Can I get an e-voucher mailed to me?
All e-vouchers will be sent through email so if you don’t have one, or don’t want to use your email, you can return your tool back for repair through our traditional warranty return process.
How can I check the balance of my e-voucher?
Enter your e-voucher at the billing step of checkout and select "check balance."
Instead of an e-voucher, can I get credit on my credit card or receive a check?
No, credit issued under this program is offered through an e-voucher to use at Leatherman.com
Can I use the e-voucher to only purchase products or can part if it be used to expedite the shipping?
Yes, you can use the e-voucher at Leatherman.com for anything you see on the website including to upgrade your shipping.
Can the e-voucher be used outside of the United States?
The e-voucher can be used in the US and be redeemed at Leatheman.com
Can I get an e-voucher for a non-Leatherman multi-tool?
No, the e-voucher program is intended to replace defective Leatherman tools only
Can I use the e-voucher to buy from the Led Lenser website?
No, the e-voucher must be redeemed at Leatherman.com
Can I combine multiple e-vouchers on one order?
Yes, multiple e-vouchers can be combined on a single transaction from Leatherman.com.
