Requesting a Replacement or Refund

This is fairly simple, we understand that things happen, so let us help you through the process. You may have to repackage and send a product back to us and there may be times when you need a timely replacement for any number or reasons. We can help. Just write us an email at or give us a call at 805-747-4611 and one of our representatives will assist you.

How to Get a Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RMA)

Before you return a product(s), you need to obtain an RMA number by email or speaking with customer service or a representative. Once an approval is provided for you, the process of returning your package will be easy for you, and us, to follow. We will send shipping instructions for returning your package(s) and you should be certain your RMA number is clearly displayed so it won't be misplaced because it can't be identified, once it arrives at our warehouses.

What Happens with Certain Returns?

There are all types of returns, and there are policies for almost every situation, but even if a new one arises, we'll do our best to do what is equitable. We can and do, use common sense to accommodate the issue at hand by referencing an existing policy as a guideline for equitable settlements of refunds, exchanges and other matters beyond the scope and experience of these guidelines.

Here are a few types of claims and how we handle them:

Damaged Shipment:

This is often very difficult for you, since you may have needed the product for a job and are now stuck. Please, inspect your shipment as soon as it arrives to be sure there was no damage in shipping. If it's evident that the package was damaged, please, accept the package rather than refusing it. Often times, there's little or no damage done to the products although the box looks like some goon used it for a football. We will need to contact the carrier and they may want to inspect the box or they may not. Photos of the damage to the box and product will help tremendously in settling the matter. If it's apparent that the product needs to be replaced, we will send you an email return label for returning the package to us. In the meantime, we will send you a replacement. You will need to contact us this within 15 days from the delivery date for this type of claim. Please, note: We do not send any product in any manner other than ground when replacing products. If you need a package to be expedited, we will apply whatever cost we would have incurred for ground shipment and only charge you for the difference.

I Ordered the Wrong Product–Oops!:

Who hasn't done this before? Once you have an RMA number, you can send it back yourself or have us send an email label that you can attach to the box for return. Of course, you'll need to do this within the 30 day guarantee. There's a 15% restocking fee to cover the cost of handling and the credit card charges we incur, and if you need to have us return the product with an email label, that fee will also be deducted, but it's usually less than what it might cost if you had to ship it yourself.

Defective Materials:

Since we're selling products from the major print companies, we expect very, very few defects. That's not to say they're absolutely perfect, but once in a blue moon we get a notice saying that some strange alien popped out of the tube. If you send us a photo of the defect we will determine what adjustment we need to offer you as compensation. Please, contact us within the guarantee period. If it's beyond that period, contact us anyway and let's see what we can do for you.

Warranty Period:

C&PW will, for 30 days from delivery date, warrant all our products we ship to you to be free of defects in materials and workmanship. Of course, we don't warrant a product for suitability of use, salability, or being well-suited for a particular purpose.
