Shipping Methods and Charges

Richmond Paper and Ink ships orders to both commercial addresses and residential addresses. Commercial addresses are defined as business addresses situated on commercially zoned real estate, as determined by the freight carrier. Residential addresses include homes, apartments, condominiums, and other dwellings designated by the carrier as a residential address. Deliveries to residential addresses may incur additional fees. Businesses operated from a house, apartment, or other dwelling not considered commercial addresses and will be charged any applicable residential delivery fees. Most orders are shipped via UPS. The shipping charges are automatically calculated online based on the weight of the carton in which you ordered. In order to give you the best possible rate, we will contact you with a quote of the shipping charges for items that do not qualify for Free Shipping using the email address you provided with your order. You will not be charged for this order until you have accepted the shipping quote we have provided. Some oversized or heavy items requiring special handling may be placed on a wooden pallet and shipped via common carrier (truck freight). Common carrier shipments are delivered curbside, that is, at the end of the driveway or along the street curb. Commercial addresses with loading docks will have the delivery made at the dock. Common carrier shipments require a signature at the time of delivery.

IMPORTANT: You will need to be sure that you have sufficient and proper equipment and personnel to unload products delivered via common carrier, as their drivers are not required to provide assistance in unloading your order. If you have them assist you in unloading there will be an additional fee billed to you for their services. If you require methods and/or services not specified above, including but not limited to inside delivery, liftgate delivery, upstairs/high-rise delivery, delivery notification, residential delivery, or date specific delivery, you must contact us for a price quote on the desired additional service(s). The charges for these additional services will be in addition to any shipping charges.

Delivery Time

Due to our vast inventory, we are able to ship most orders within the same day of receiving it, with approved payment. Your expected delivery date is determined by the date of shipment from our shipping centers and the shipping preference you select.

While we will make every effort to provide your order by the desired date, Richmond Paper and Ink does not guarantee the timely delivery of any item. To avoid disappointment, please allow sufficient time for delivery. All shipments travel during normal business days, which do not include weekends, holidays, and other official days of rest. Please remember to take into account federal holidays, inclement weather, and other factors beyond our control that may affect the arrival of your order.

If you need to cancel an order, please contact us during our normal business hours as soon as possible, preferably by phone for fastest action. If the order has not shipped, we will stop the order and cancel or refund any charges we have posted for the order. You will be responsible for round trip shipping costs on any order that has been shipped prior to cancellation, that is refused at time of delivery, or is shipped in good faith by returned to us due to incorrect or incomplete shipping information.
