Ordering FAQ

How can I tell if an item is in stock?

Stock and availability information will be shown on the product page and in the QUICK LOOK view.

What can I do if what I want is out of stock?

If a product you want is out of stock, please contact our Customer Service Team and we’ll send you an email notification as soon as the product is available.

What happens if what I ordered is out of stock?

If an item on your order is out of stock we'll remove it from your order and refund you.

Do we offer discount codes or coupons?

Yes, if you sign up for our emails you may receive discounts and coupon codes via email and in with your orders. 

Can I use a gift card from Visa, Mastercard, or American Express on my purchase?

Yes, we accept Gift Cards of this type for online purchases.

Why do we ask for your CVV number when making a credit card purchase?

The intended purpose of the CVV is to provide added security when making purchases over the internet - it helps to verify that you're in possession of the card, as the code shouldn't be known to anyone other than you as the card holder.  This prevents others from making a fraudulent purchase on your credit card.

Why do we ask for your billing address when making a credit card purchase?

Like your CVV number, we ask for your billing address to prevent fraudulent transactions from occurring on your credit card. This ensures that you avoid the headache of disputing charges and investigating transactions on your account.

Collect On Delivery (COD) Information 

Important things to know when ordering COD.

  • COD ordering is available to Professional Accounts ONLY and at Eikon's discretion.
  • All COD orders must ship to a pre-approved professional shop location.
  • COD payments MUST be made with a certified cheque or money order.

Shipping FAQ

Do we ship internationally?

We ship to Canada and the USA from our online store and we have 40+ world wide authorized dealers if you are purchasing from outside North America. Some brands and items are excluded from International Shipping.

How do I make sure my ink order doesn't freeze?

Heat packs are provided in every ink order from November to March. It's your responsibility to monitor the weather to ensure your order arrives safely.

IMPORTANT: Eikon is NOT responsible for frozen ink.

Recommended safe-shipping:

  • Place your pigment order separately from the rest of your order.
  • Ship EXPRESS to reduce the risk of freezing.
  • Place your order early in the week to prevent pigment from sitting in the distribution warehouse over the weekend.

I think my package was lost or stolen!

You are responsible for tracking your package. Eikon is not responsible for lost or stolen packages. Please contact your carrier to report a lost or stolen package.
