Return Policy

Order Exactly What You Want (and Avoid Returns!)

We think we have the best products under the sun and we'd like you to feel the same way about the products you receive from us. We are a small company and want to avoid a return as much as you do! Therefore, if you are the least bit uncertain about the product, color, texture, size, weight, etc., contact us! It will be close, but not exact. If you don't see your particular model of toner cartridge or inkjet listed, don't guess - contact us! We're here to assist you and make your buying experience as pleasant as possible, and will graciously research and/or discuss the product, the intended use, send paper samples, etc! We have experienced staff and sometimes one toll-free phone call can make a big difference. You can also contact us via email with your questions or concerns.

We understand there are special circumstances and mistakes in placing orders. It is very important that you contact us if you're the least bit uncertain about a product or shipping time. If you've placed your order incorrectly, contact us immediately so we can resolve the issue. We can catch your order and correct it if you phone us within an hour of placing your order. If you place your order after 5 PM central time or during the weekend, relax and contact us by 10 AM central time on the next business day; our fulfillment center is closed Saturday and Sunday, so a weekend order won't be processed until Monday morning.

Please note internet browsers render colors differently, depending on the settings of your system and browser used, so what you see on your browser may not be the same as the actual product color.

You also have a Cartridge Warranty if something goes awry.

  • Our Remanufactured Toner Cartridges are the absolute highest-quality toner cartridges attainable -- backed by an industry-leading 1-year warranty (from date of purchase) against defects in materials and workmanship. 
  • We further warrant our toner cartridge will not cause damage, abnormal wear, or deterioration to any compatible laser printer. If a defect in the cartridge causes a printer to fail, we will reimburse the customer for the cost of service and repair of the printer.
  • This limited warranty covers all defects in materials and workmanship when the toner cartridge is used in a printer in accordance with the printer manufacturer's instructions and does not cover:
    • Loss or damage to the toner cartridge, or the machine in which it is used, resulting from abuse, mishandling, alteration, accident, electrical current or voltage fluctuations, failure to follow operating instructions, maintenance, storage, or environmental recommendations, as prescribed in the operator's manual of the machine in which the cartridge is intended to be used, or
    • Tampering, disassembly, or other alteration by unauthorized persons or other "recharge" or "refill" companies.

 Please note it can take up to 2 1/2 weeks for a refund to be issued.
