I’VE TRACKED MY PACKAGE VIA USPS. THE TRACKING INFORMATION HASN’T UPDATED IN SOME TIME. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Unfortunately, USPS Priority Mail does not have a guaranteed delivery time. Sometimes it takes up to 5-7 shipping days for your package to arrive. However, USPS can normally provide you with more information. You can contact your local United States Post Office (if you do not have the number, you can find your Post Office on USPS’s website click here and provide them with the tracking number and ask for an update. They will normally be able to tell you the current status of your package and provide you with a different phone number to call if necessary. If you are ever in a hurry for an order from JSI, we recommend selecting UPS Ground as your shipping method. They do guarantee their delivery times, and you can see the shipping turnaround times from our location by click here.
I’M MISSING PART OF MY ORDER, WHAT DO I DO?
First, unroll everything in the order to make sure it wasn’t rolled up with something else. We will roll multiple sheets together for shipping purposes, so you might not see at first. Next, inspect the box to make sure it wasn’t damaged in shipping and the item fell out. If so, please email email@example.com with a photo of the damages and your order number/contact information so we can file a claim with the carrier. Also, the product may have been drop-shipped from our manufacturer. Lastly, check the invoice that was attached to your package. The item may have been out of stock, and should be noted on your invoice and the final charges adjusted accordingly. If you still can’t find it, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your order number/contact information so we can investigate further to resolve this issue for you.
CAN I ADD TO MY ORDER?
If you would like to add to your order, please place another order and put in the comments to TRY to combine with your other order and include the order number. Depending how busy the shipping dept is and as long as it hasn’t been processed, we should be able to combine those orders for you and adjust your shipping charge appropriately. Otherwise, it will be treated as a separate order and charged as such. When you are ordering online, you are not actually being charged yet. You are authorizing us to run a certain amount on your card, and those funds are set aside for us. We can adjust the final charge. Call in orders take longer to get to the ship area and calling in could prevent your orders from being combined, so definitely do this online.
HOW DO I GET SAMPLES?
Unfortunately, we do not have any kind of samples. However, most of our sign/craft/adhesive vinyl and heat transfer vinyl’s can be purchased in 1 foot sections at the previous links. We do have Siser color charts for all of their products and PerfecPress Color Chart and JSI Signs Glitter Color Chart. All of these Color Charts sell for a nominal fee.
Roll Size Is Not Exactly What Is On The Website?
Due to most vinyl being produced overseas they are not created with inches in mind. It is industry standard to have up to 3/4″ variance. Always pre-measure your vinyl before sending designs.
Please note: Sheet sizes can have a variance in them. Example: a 12″ x 10″ sheet can range from 12″ x 9.75″ to 12″ x 10″

HOW DO I KNOW WHAT FORCE TO CUT VINYL I PURCHASED FROM YOU AT?
Unfortunately, there is no standard answer for what pressure to cut any one material on. It all depends on your machine, the material, and how dull your blade is. The best way to find out what pressure to cut at, is to perform a test cut and go from there. Here is a guide with a little more information on what to look for on a test cut. Some products cut better with 60 degree blades over 45 degree blades. Check your product specs to see if 60 degree is recommended.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT SIDE TO CUT MY VINYL ON?
The easiest way to determine which side to cut your vinyl is to get your pick tool and pick a corner. You just always want to make sure you are cutting on the VINYL side and not the LINER side.
I’M HAVING TROUBLE WITH SOME HTV NOT STICKING TO A SHIRT. WHAT HAPPENED?
There are a lot of variables as to why this might happen, you may want to review this guide on troubleshooting HTV.
