Unless you choose mailing services or Layout Services, you need to select one of the counter pickup or shipping options presented to you on Smartpress.com. When choosing a shipping option, please remember the estimated shipping transit time is based on the number of business days in transit. This does not include weekends, holidays or the day the package is picked up.
For instance, a product shipped 2nd Day and picked up by the carrier on a Thursday would be delivered by end of day Monday.
For online printing projects, transit times vary. Smartpress assumes no responsibility for delays caused by carriers, weather or any damages resulting from the failure to receive a job on time. Your order may arrive late due to unforeseen delays in delivery service, the breakdown of equipment, illness, etc.
Smartpress’s responsibility is limited to preparing your printing order and submitting it to the carrier for shipping. As an online printer, Smartpress is not liable for damages which occur in shipping.
Please note: We cannot ship to P.O. Boxes or APO/FPO.
Mailing and Shipping
Printing turnaround time for jobs with ground shipping is not guaranteed. We do our best to meet or beat our published dates for our online printing services. However, orders with an expedited turnaround and/or expedited delivery service do take precedence.
Printing turnaround time for jobs with an expedited turnaround and/or shipping is guaranteed. To qualify for the guarantee, we must have approved proofs by 9 a.m. CST of the first day of the turnaround period.
The guarantee will be considered fulfilled when we have delivered the order to the common carrier (usually UPS or USPS). We cannot be held accountable for the performance of the common carrier. There can be unforeseen issues with shipping, so if you absolutely must have your work, plan extra days into the job cycle.
If we fail to meet a guaranteed deadline as described above, there are two options:
- You will receive a pro-rated refund of any rush charges
- Or a free upgrade of delivery service to meet your required delivery date
Cancellation of an order based on printing turnaround time is allowed if you indicate in the order notes when placing the order that it is time-sensitive and must be shipped by the selected turnaround time.
We can also blind ship your print projects. This is a great option for marketing firms and resellers, since blind shipping gives you the option to remove the Smartpress name and address from your packages and add your own.
That way, your customers get their products straight from “you.” Just add blind shipping on the shipping page when you’re checking out.
Note: Blind shipping is available only in the U.S.
Counter pickup orders are available anytime after 6 p.m. of the estimated ship date. Please wait until you’ve received an email indicating your order has “shipped” before arriving. Once you’ve been notified your order is ready, it can be picked up anytime (the door to the counter pickup area is open 24/7).
The pickup location is 950 Lake Drive East, Chanhassen, MN 55317.
