Warehousing and Fulfillment

PrintNinja is proud to offer basic warehousing and fulfillment options. We can store your books, ship cartons to you as you need them, and even fulfill Kickstarter orders by shipping individual copies to your customers. You may divert part or all of your order to PrintNinja’s warehouse near our offices in Evanston, IL to take advantage of our services. This will require a custom shipping quote and may add up to three weeks to the shipping time of these books (copies going elsewhere will take the normal amount of time).

Please note:
-All orders ship via USPS or UPS, unless otherwise requested prior to sending fulfillment order to PrintNinja
-No insurance added to postage, unless otherwise requested prior to sending fulfillment order to PrintNinja
-Customer must provide bona fide customs value for all international shipments
