* Original Brand (OEM) Cartridges:
Brother, Canon, Dell, Epson, Hewlett Packard, Lexmark etc. are covered by their respective manufacturer's warranties. If you have a defective original brand item, please contact the manufacturer to verify the manufacturers' warranty. We do not accept returns of open OEM cartridges.
** Refill Kits or Continuous Ink Systems:
For Refill Kits, any perceived "quality" or "defective" issues with these products are usually the result of a defective cartridge that is being refilled, and not with the ink/toner that you are refilling into the cartridge. For example, if your cartridge is already printing with streaks or lines before refilling, or if the cartridge's print heads have dried considerably due to non-use, your cartridge is basically already defective or exhibiting signs of defect, and refilling it will not bring it back to life. It is always recommended to refill an inkjet cartridge BEFORE it completely empties and while it is still printing well, or very soon after it empties so the print heads don't dry beyond repair.
For Continuous Ink Systems (CIS), most of the issues are related to installation. If these products are properly installed you should have no problems with these products.
*** Edible Products:
We are sorry but we cannot accept EDIBLE products for return as these considered consumable by the FDA are not resalable upon return.
**** Equipment and Printers (including Edible ink Printers & Direct to Garment Printers):
For all equipment and machines, including Edible Ink Printers and Direct to Garment Printers, please note that all sales are final and no returns or refunds are permitted. All issues must be remedied per warranty. Direct to Garment Printers Terms & Warranty | Direct to Food Printers Terms & Warranty.

Here are the rules to follow for your return:
Order Cancellation / Address Correction Requests / Unreceived Parcels:
Cancellation or address correction requests must be called in before 11 a.m. PST. Please note that once an order is placed, although we will do our best to make any requested changes, we cannot guarantee that the changes can be made because the order may already be in our processing cycle, or may have already shipped. If your parcel is not delivered to you via the shipping carrier, you must notify us within 15 days of the expected delivery date. Due to shipping carrier procedures and guidelines, we cannot file disputes or claims with shipping carriers like the USPS, UPS, DHL, etc. past a certain time (varies per carrier, but typically within 15-30 days of the expected delivery date, and never to exceed 30 days from the ship-out date).
