Inspect your order

You should be present to inspect and accept your delivery. If the delivery appears damaged it should be refused. You may ask your delivery person if they will allow you to inspect the contents to see if the contents are damaged. If the contents are damaged refuse the entire shipment. It is not possible to get an adjustment or a partial credit when products have been damaged by the shipping company. In accepting a delivery you are acknowledging that it arrived in good condition.

Inspect the contents of your order to insure that all items are correct and accounted for. You have 7 days after acknowledgement of delivery to report an error in the shipment or an error in your ordering. We will be unable to process a return and refund after that time.

PRINTERS - Most wide-format printers are heavy and are delivered by freight companies. Printers may NOT be returned if the inks have been installed in the printer, as all of the inks would have to be drained prior to shipping the printer back, and then an entire new set of inks would have to be replaced. We do not allow returns for printers for reasons of merchantablitly or fitness of purpose. You should research any printers prior to purchasing to make sure they meet your requirements. If there is a problem with your printer, the manufacturer's warranty and terms apply. If any printer returns are authorized, you will be responsible for the cost of both the inbound and outbound freight costs for the printer and a restocking charge of up to 40% due to the logistics of shippng and stocking a wide format printer. If an RMA is authorized for a printer, the printer must be in its original box and orignal packacking including the pallet it was attached to.
