IDP Americas Warranty Summary

Please read the full details in IDP’s Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale.

Covered by IDP’s Advanced Replacement Warranty!

If eXpress badging cannot get your printer functional within an hour or so of troubleshooting, we open a support ticket with IDP Americas directly.  Some tickets may require further troubleshooting from IDP and/or our tech. Others may not, and eXpress badging can manage and coordinate the shipment of the IDP Replacement Warranty Printer(RWP) within a business day or two.  Once the RWP arrives and is removed from the box, you place the non-functional printer in the same box for return. The customer pays for shipping both ways. The IDP support ticket is closed once the RWP is received.
