Q: Does PensXpress.com ship to APO/FPO addresses?

A: PensXpress does not ship to APO/FPO addresses. See question 28.

Q: Why doesn't your company ship via USPS?

A: To be honest, there are a number of reasons why USPS delivery services are cheaper. One, they do not have any live tracking whatsoever. Delivery confirmation is available but only lets you know when the package has arrived, not where the package is or when will it arrive AND it costs extra. Two, all UPS packages are automatically insured for $100 with the base shipping costs. Insurance on USPS packages is an additional cost. Three, UPS provides signed delivery with the base shipping costs where as to it would cost extra if using USPS.

After Your Order Has Been Received/Shipped
Q: What do I do if something is missing from my order?

A: We ask all customers to go through the entire box/package very carefully to verify if something is missing. If you are indeed missing an item from your order, please contact our offices and explain the situation. After an investigation into the missing item, the customer will be notified of the resolution.

31. Q: What if I received something I didn't order?

A: If you have received another item instead of one you purchased, please contact our customer service dept at orders@pensxpress.com and explain the situation. After an investigation into the order, the customer will be notified of the resolution. Most likely what will happen is that the parts will be picked up and then the correct ones re-shipped.

Q: If I receive pens that were printed wrong or are the wrong color, can I send them back?

A: PensXpress is responsible for printing and shipping exactly what you order. If we make a mistake during the printing process, we will RMA the wrong pens and ship you corrected pens. For further details, please read the Terms and Conditions .

Q: How does your shipping/processing work?

A: We use UPS for all our shipping needs. What happens is once an order is placed, we see the order on our system. If there are no billing/shipping discrepancies, the order is sent to the production deptarment to be printed. Once printed, the package is weighed and labeled and is then ready to be picked up by UPS. Then once the final pickup is made, the tracking numbers are emailed to all the customers at approximately 8-10PM EST. What do I do if my order was shipped at a shipping rate slower than I paid for? If there is a shipping error and the shipment is shipped out at a slower rate than originally paid for, we will refund the difference in shipping back to the customer.

Q: Why does my UPS tracking number say "Exception" as it's status?

A: If your tracking number has a status of "Exception", then there was a problem with the delivery. You can click "Details" in the tracking website, there will be a brief explanation as to why there was an exception. If you have any questions, please call our offices to resolve the issue.

Q: Where is my tracking number for my order?

A: Tracking numbers are emailed to the provided email addresses of all orders that shipped that business day at approximately 8-11PM EST.
