Information Regarding Free Shipping:

Heat Transfer Vinyl4U / Hi-Tech Graphics offers its customers Free Standard Shipping through USPS’ First-Class or Priority options or FedEx’s Home Delivery or Ground options for orders equaling $39.99 or above. Please consider a few key factors when selecting this shipping option for your order:

  • The estimated delivery times via Free Standard Shipping can range from 1 - 4 business days, depending on where you are located; however, we highly advise customers to be aware that these delivery times are not guaranteed, and that various issues faced by carrier services may result in a delay in your order’s delivery.

Please refer to the tracking number provided to you in order to check the status of your package. If you have concerns regarding your order during transit, please contact the carrier service in charge of delivering your order to you. 
  • The carrier service used to deliver your package via Free Standard Shipping is determined by Heat Transfer Vinyl4U / Hi-Tech Graphics as we seek to lower shipping costs on our end. If it is of any concern, please let us know as soon as possible of your preferred carrier service between USPS and FedEx prior to your order’s shipment. We may ask for additional shipping costs to choose a specific carrier. 
  • Free Standard Shipping is limited to orders within the U.S.; orders placed within American states and territories outside of the contiguous United States may be subject to additional fees depending on the weight and dimensions of their package. Customers will be notified for confirmation as soon as possible in the event this occurs. This may result in a delay of shipment depending on how long it may take to contact you.
