Return Policy

30 Day Return Policy:

All returns and exchanges must be made within 30 days of purchase and are subject to a 15% restocking fee. Customers may elect to receive a store credit or refund.

For Heat Presses: Any return of a heat press requires an RMA to be processed by a representative. The return of a heat press requires that all original packaging is included, specifically, the original box and foam moldings, stability board, manual, any accessories, and power cable (if applicable). All returns are subject to return shipping fees and a 15% restocking fee if a return is preference based and the machine is free from defects. (Refer to our DOA policy for information on defective or damaged returns.)

Under certain circumstances, we are able to waive the 15% restocking fee when a replacement product is purchased of equal or greater value or under special consideration. However, the returned item must be in like new condition and must not show signs of extensive use. Simply place an order for a new heat press and upon receipt of your returned heat press, we will issue a refund with zero restocking fees. Please note, to/from shipping costs shall still be deducted from the refund amount. In the case that a free shipping promotion is applied to the original order, initial and return shipping will be deducted from the refund amount and is non-negotiable.

When requesting an RMA, the representative should inform you of all costs associated with the return prior to accepting and processing the RMA including to and from shipping and restocking if applicable. (Returning press must be in brand new condition, with all original packaging, paperwork, manuals, and accessories included to be eligible for waived re-stocking fee.)

Return to Sender: When an order is placed and shipped and the package is undeliverable, Heat Press Nation reserves the right to assess to and from shipping costs for the return. When the item arrives back, a refund will be processed for the item less the to-and-from shipping costs. We ask that if you are expecting to return a product, please reach out to our customer service team so that they may guide you in the best way to return your item.

For Consumable Items Only: We are able to accept consumable items within 30 days of purchase, however, customer would be responsible for return shipping. Consumable items are subjected to a 20% restocking fee if it is not returned in the original condition in which it was received. Consumable items include transfer paper, heat transfer vinyl, sublimation blanks, etc.

Please note: We are not able to accept returns on inks that have been opened. Please double check your packaging to ensure that you have received the correct inks for your designated printer. For further inquiries, contact us directly at (800)215-0894.

15 Day DOA/Shipping Damage Policy:

All of our heat presses undergo a thorough quality control inspection before leaving our warehouse. Because of our strict quality control procedures, we are confident that your heat press will be in 100% working order upon delivery. Occasionally there are situations where products are damaged in transit and as a result, may not be in proper working or cosmetic condition upon arrival. In these situations we are happy to exchange your damaged/DOA/defective item with a brand new, direct replacement entirely at our expense.

To be eligible for a no-cost replacement, claims must be made within 15 days of product delivery. Please inspect your items immediately upon delivery and notify your delivery driver immediately if there is any physical damage to the packaging.
