According to the EU Distance Selling Directive, the consumer is protected by a number of safeguards and entitlements. Ink Maestro Limited is committed to complying with this directive. With this in mind you are entitled to a fourteen-day 'cooling-off period', whereby you are entitled to return your purchase to us for any reason* within fourteen days of receipt of same, and be refunded the price that you paid, minus the shipping charge. This safeguard applies only where the products in question are unopened, unused, undamaged, and returned to us in full saleable condition. Charges for return-shipment must be borne by the purchaser. In the event that you have ordered the incorrect consumables for your machine, and opened same (outer box or inner packaging) then we cannot refund in part or full. For items ordered incorrectly, or for items that are not required any longer, Ink Maestro reserves the right to decline to accept returns and also to levy a re-stocking fee.
*'Specials', once communicated by us to the client as being such and accepted by the client as such, can not be returned to us.
Please note: If you've ordered an item in error and opened its packaging we cannot accept it back!
The guarantees on our various product lines are as follows:
In the event that you've purchased a faulty original or OEM product from Ink Maestro Ltd. please contact the manufacturer directly for further instruction.

Return to Ink Maestro Ltd.
Before a refund and/or reshipment can be issued, the cartridges in question must be returned to Ink Maestro Limited. Ink Maestro Limited will not be responsible for damaged parts if customer does not follow this process. Please retain shipping information including tracking numbers, until your account has been credited by Ink Maestro Limited or replacement product is received. Ink Maestro Limited cannot be held liable for any lost packages that are not given any type of tracking number or documentation. If Ink Maestro Limited determines that failure of the product(s) was not as a result of a defect in materials or workmanship, or if the reason for return does not involve failure, then Ink Maestro Limited reserves the right to charge the customer for parts and labour at Ink Maestro Limited current labour rate, or charge the customer a 20% restocking fee. Ink Maestro Limited will advise customer prior to assessing these charges.
If no order number, invoice number, delivery note or RMA number is included, there will be a delay in the returns process. If you do not state whether you desire a refund or a replacement, a standard replacement will be issued. You will not receive a refund or reshipment if you use over 25% of the product.

In Stock-Limited Availability
'In Stock' means the product is in stock, here in our building, so if you order and pay before 16.00 we will send the goods on the same day (Mon. to Fri.). If you choose to pay on account, we will dispatch your order immediately after any credit has been approved. 'Limited Availability' means the item is not in stock at the moment, either because we are waiting for a new delivery or that the product is not normally kept in stock. If you wish to order the product you can do so, we can have stock of most items within 24 to 48 hours, after which we can dispatch your order. If there is going to be a longer delay we will let you know. If you need to know a lead time on a limited availability product before you order we will be happy to provide you with an estimated time of delivery. Please send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. While we would love to have stock of every single item, all the time, it just isn't physically possible and some of the rarer products can be hard to source. We are of course subject to supplier and overseas delivery gremlins, but we try our best to fulfill all orders in a timely fashion.
Ink Maestro Limited is based in Dublin 11, where we have a 16,000 sq. ft. office and warehouse premises. We hold a very large stock of most 'runners' (i.e. the fast movers). Some items (Xerox, Toshiba, Sharp) etc. are such small sellers that we often don't keep stock of them, in which case there may be a 7-10 day lead time. We use Fastway Couriers for next day delivery throughout Ireland.
Risk of Loss
Ink Maestro Limited liability for delivery shall cease, and title and all risk of loss or damage to the products as a result of misuse, or damage to personal property as a result of misuse shall pass on to the customer.
A 15 business day waiting period is required before any product shall be resent or any order be cancelled at the discretion of Ink Maestro Limited, per customer request.
