The User is responsible for relaying the correct information from the User’s Customers. Users may adjust the settings for when an Order is sent to production.
Orders for products with recently updated artwork go through a Printroof Quality Control process that checks for low-resolution imagery or any other design related issues. If an issue is discovered, Printroof will send merchants an email explaining the issue and any possible product quality repercussions. If You choose to proceed with the order, or if Printroof does not receive a response within 7 days of the email notification, the order will be submitted and You will not be eligible for any replacements or refunds for this order. Orders that don’t meet other criteria of Printroof ’s Terms of Service or Intellectual Property Policy will be cancelled, and charges refunded.
The Production times listed on the Website are estimated average times and are in no way guaranteed. If Your Order seems to be taking an unusually long time to be produced or delivered, please contact Printroof ’s Support team. If the Produced Order is lost during Shipment, Printroof will investigate and may provide replacements when appropriate.
After investigating Your issue, if Printroof ’s Support team determines that your Product is faulty, Your Orders will be submitted for either reprint or replacement. Refunds are only provided if a subsequent reprint or replacement is also found to be faulty by our Merchant Support team. Refunds will be issued in the form of credits to Your Printroof balance.
Printroof does not give refunds for orders that have been shipped without tracking until they are verified to be lost.
If an order is returned to Printroof due to an incorrect address, the User will be contacted by Printroof Support to arrange a reshipment. The User will be liable for the reshipment costs once an updated address is provided and confirmed. Otherwise, packages will be donated after two weeks if Printroof Support is not provided with a valid address for the reshipment. Reshipment costs include the original shipping cost of the product and a service fee of $4. The service fee covers any Charge On Delivery (C.O.D) fees that we get charged by the fulfillment operator and handling fees.
If an order has not been delivered in 30 calendar days (for domestic US or regional EU orders) or in 45 calendar days (for international orders), merchants should contact Printroof Support within 1 week in order to be eligible for a reprint/refund.
