What is the PRINT QUALITY and delivery time?

All print reproductions in my shop are high quality giclée reproductions. They are printed on flat artist canvas or paper and can be matted, dry-mounted, or with the canvas, stretched over wooden stretcher bars. All giclée reproductions are printed to order and typically take 10-14 days for delivery to ensure quality control. 

I WOULD LIKE TO BUY A DIFFERENT SIZE PRINT THAN WHAT IS OFFERED?  

At this time we only offer the prints sizes specified in the shop to be able to maintain the quality and control, and add to the value of the artwork. We will be looking at expanding the size selection for the future.

Do you offer FRAMING?

At this time I do not offer framing from my studio. Visit a professional framer to see the options for framing originals, as well as matting and framing prints.

HOW WILL MY original ARTWORK BE SHIPPED?

All artwork is wrapped in paper and then padded well with bubble wrap or foam. It is then packaged in a sturdy, well-fitting cardboard box. For larger sizes it is double boxed for added care and security.

Typically for original artwork larger than 30” x 40” (76 x 122 cm) the canvas is shipped unstretched, rolled and padded before being packaged in a sturdy mailing tube. We will communicate with your framer or source local framers for you to gain more information about them and receive estimates. We will work with the chosen framer to stretch the canvas and have it delivered to your home or office. You can also have it framed at this time.

If you prefer, a large painting can be shipped fully stretched using a freight service to Canada or the United States.

Most artwork will ship via FedEx and most shipments are delivered within 2-4 business days.

Shipping costs will be confirmed with each individual destination. Please be aware that your government, excluding Canada and the United States, may charge duty/fees for imported products based upon the value of your order.

How will my prints be shipped?

Prints that are 11” x 14” and smaller are mailed in a sturdy flat mailer. Prints that are 16” x 20” are mailed in a sturdy mailing tube.

Prints are shipped via USPS or FedEx.

Shipping costs to the United States are calculated at checkout based on package weight and distance. If there is any discrepancy -/+ we will let you know via email.

For shipments to countries other than the United States, the costs will be confirmed with each individual destination. Please be aware that your government (excluding Canada) may charge duty/fees for imported products based upon the value of your order.

Do you allow local pick-up for originals? 

Yes indeed! Please email me, and we will coordinate a time for you to pick up your painting.

What is your RETURN AND EXCHANGE policy?
