The US Department for Homeland Security has implemented
a new policy (Sept., 2004) requiring all inbound US
shipments to be accompanied by the recipient's Federal
Tax ID # or Social Security #. If you wish to disclose
that to us to place on the waybill paperwork, that
is fine. Otherwise, you will note on your invoice
that the Customs Brokers can call you and obtain it
on the telephone. Of course the choice is yours and
we respect our client's privacy so we will let you
choose. We suspect that not necessarily all shipments
will need this information verified.
Sales Policy - All Limited Edition Prints:
fully stand behind all products sold on this site.
All original artworks are warranted against material
misrepresentation. Should an artwork arrive and be
materially different than that listed on the site,
we will gladly issue a credit or refund upon return
of the artwork in its original condition. Please be
sure to ask before ordering whether the image is representitive
of the artwork, as some of the images on the site
display differently on various computer screens and
thus may not reflect the true colours of the original
100% due to scanning and / or photography variances.
All original artworks are shipped insured unless otherwise
indicated by the Buyer. Be sure to inspect all shipments
before signing a release for them. Although extremely
rare, items damaged in transit will be compensated
for by the Carrier's insurance policy (ie the Shipper).
open edition prints carry a conditional warranty covered
by our Partners. Those prints supplied directly by
us are costly to produce due to the framing expenses,
and we require orders to be paid in full at time of
ordering. If they arrive damaged, the Buyer will be
fully compensated by the Insurer and issuance of an
identicle replacement is possible. Again, please inspect
all shipments before signing for them. Also, please
be sure to ask if the web site image is representitive
of the actual prints.
there is a material misrepresentation or error on
original artwork sales or advertisements, please contact
us by email or telephone within 5 days of receipt
of the order. We will then instruct you on return
shipping instructions. If the error is from us, we
will either correct the order at no charge to the
Customer or if we cannot fulfill the order for any
reason, we will promptly issue a full refund including
shipping charges if applicable upon receipt of the
original order in its original condition.
other returns on products valued under $150.00 after
the 5 day notification period will be issued a credit
towards another purchase upon return of the merchandise
in its original condition.
an advertisement is posted, unfortunately we cannot
offer refunds. If there is an error, we will make
the necessary changes.
misrepresenation definitions that would lead to a
full refund on a purchase of an artwork:
Artwork Size as determined by surface area wrong by
15% or more.
- Wrong image altogether.
other errors or ommissions will be addressed and dealt
with in a manner to be least inconvenient to the Buyer.
All orders are professionally packaged to ensure safe
arrival intact. Larger works of art or original works
of art need special crating that must be custom made
for each artwork. This adds to the shipping cost but
is absolutely necessary to obtain the proper insurance
from the Carriers.
all reproduction prints, we typically use FedEx Ground
or FedEx Priority Service. In some cases, we may suggest
Greyhound Courier Express (within Canada) or Canada
Post Express Mail Service. Whatever service is used,
the order will be trackable and insured. If lost or
damaged in transit, a replacement will be sent as
quickly as possible free of charge upon receipt of
the original order or confirmation from the carrier
that the item was lost or damaged. Please always inspect
the packaging before accepting the shipment. If there
are visible signs of damage or moisture, please have
the delivery person make a note of it and make him
stay until the item is opened and inspected for damage.
possible, we have tried to indicate approximate shipping
charges to Canada and the US. Sometimes we may be
able to find less expensive rates and sometimes the
rates may be more depending on the rates our carriers
charge which change sometimes without notice. If there
is a large difference in the shipping charges from
those listed on the site, we will get in touch with
you to discuss the options, or if you wish to proceed
with the order.
all original artworks, typically we must contract
a fine art shipper. Often they require crating be
done in-house to comply with the insurance / shipping
requirements. Thus, often we must find out where the
artwork is going and have a custom quote put together,
as most common carriers do not carry original works
of art. We do offer rates that offer us no premium
over the quoted rates of our carriers. Typically,
the insurance on original artworks is 2% of the declared
value. We have full service Fine Art Shippers that
can make all of the necessary arrangements to just
about anywhere in the world, including customs brokering
