How Will I Know That My Beanie™ Has Been Authenticated?

What Do I Do If My Beanie™ Is Counterfeit?

If your Beanie™ is determined to be counterfeit, an Authentication Rejection Form prepared and personally signed by Becky Estenssoro or Karen Boeker will accompany the Beanie™ back to you. The Rejection Form will state the reason(s) your Beanie™ did not pass the authentication process, and will include the Beanie™ name, heart and tush tag generation, and an embossed TRUE BLUE BEANS seal.

What Do I Do If My Beanie™ Is Counterfeit?

TRUE BLUE BEANS chooses not to enter into any disputes that may arise between a buyer and seller.
