Shipping, Warranty, and Returns


Smaller Printers/Items

We ship most smaller items and printers using UPS Ground and FedEx Ground/Home Delivery. Shipping times once your printer leaves our warehouse vary based on location. Typical shipping times can be seen below from UPS. If you would like to request a certain shipping carrier please contact us before placing your order.

Any items that need be shipped outside of the Continental United States require special shipping and must be calculated on an item by item basis. Flat rate shipping does not apply for any International shipments. Please contact us to get an exact shipping quote for the printer you would like to order. 




Larger Items/Freight Shipping

Most larger printers and plotters do require shipping by pallet with a freight company. We typically use FedEx freight as our carrier for these shipments. Freight shipping rates calculated by our website are for delivery to a freight dock at a business address. If you are at a residential address or require liftgate delivery, please contact us before placing your order to get an accurate shipping quote for the printer you would like to order.

Shipping times will vary based on location, and typical FedEx Freight transit times are shown below.

1) Please note any external damage to our shipping boxes or products when you sign for delivery.   If necessary, please refuse delivery of any product which is in questionable condition and inform our staff immediately.

2) Any item received damaged in shipping must be reported to us within 14 days upon receipt of your purchase.  We are unable to file damage claims after this time with our carriers.

3) We require photographs of damaged boxes and/or products to submit to our shipping/freight carriers in order to process a damage claim.   A claim allows us to provide replacement product and pickup of damaged product at the carrier's expense. Please help us to help you by sending pictures and notification of items damaged in shipping as quickly as possible.

We will then arrange for a replacement model to be sent out after receipt of the damaged item. Advanced replacement of damaged items is only possible if the customer provides a credit card number to pay for the replacement unit in advance. The same credit card will be refunded the cost of the replacement unit after the defective unit is received and inspected at PrinterStop. No advance replacement is possible without prepayment.

If you chose not to help us file a shipping claim by providing pictures, you are free to return the damaged item for refund, subject to the terms and conditions listed above under "Defective Items". In that situation, PrinterStop will not be responsible for refunding shipping costs.
