I think that it is more likely that the particular vendor simply does not want the extra hassle that comes with shipping overseas. Extra forms to fill in additional care in packaging etc. They may think that the extra business does not pay the extra costs.
Lots of stuff one vendor will not ship can easily be purchased from another vendor.
Another possible explanation is that the manufacturers want to protect their sales channels. I have had non Amazon vendors explain that they could not ship to a foreign country or even to my re-shipper because that would violate their agreement with their manufacturer. The manufacturer may have set up foreign sales channels that prohibit reselling into foreign markets.
If you look at the lists of prohibited items on shipper web sites it is mostly about stuff prohibited for import, perishable and/or dangerous goods or military goods. High tech alone does not show up on the lists unless it is high tech with a military specific application. I don't think printer heads would qualify. (Most likely made in China anyway lol)
