We work hard to make sure that our customer's needs are met. We also understand that there is a significant amount of trust that goes along with purchasing art work over the internet. It is our desire that you be happy, not only with our photography, but with our customer service as well.

If after receiving your purchase you are less than satisfied, simpy return it to us within 30 days in its original condition and packaging, and we will gladly refund your money. We regret that we are currently unable to refund shipping & handling charges, however. If the print is damaged in shipping, please contact us before returning it.

To maximize your enjoyment of your photographic prints, we recommend that they be matted and framed under glass by a professional framer using archival techniques. You will get the longest life from your print if it is displayed framed under glass, and away from direct sunlight, atmospheric pollutants, tobacco smoke, or any harsh chemical fumes.

SHIPPING

Domestic USA Shipments
Standard domestic orders are shipped via the United States Postal Service or UPS Ground, which usually requires 3-7 days in transit, in addition to our in house processing time. While these services are reliable and supposedly guaranteed, the reality is that there's never a guarantee on their expediency. We do however guarantee every shipment against loss or damage. If you have a deadline for delivery, we strongly encourage you to call us with your requirements.

International Shipments
International orders are shipped via USPS (typically 7-10 days in transit.) All photographs, posters, greeting cards, and any other form of art sold by us, is guaranteed against damage in transit. Please note that many countries will impose a duty or tax at the time of delivery on shipments over certain valuations. We advise that you determine what customs in your country will charge you prior to purchase, as we don't have the ability to determine these charges for every country.

No Profit on Shipping
We do not profit off of shipping, and only charge you for the cost of shipping, packaging and insurance.

ASAP Processing
Most items typically ship in 5-7 business days from the date of your order. We will notify you if an order is delayed beyond our normal processing time. Made to order items are fulfilled ASAP, but can vary depending on the item and quantity ordered. If you have a specific deadline, we suggest letting us know so that we can ensure on time delivery.

Shipment Notification and Tracking
We will attempt to email you a notification when your order ships and provide you the tracking information. The United States Postal Service and UPS are our primary carriers. Shipments over $100 require signature upon delivery, so please provide a shipment address where your package can be signed for.

Insurance
All shipments are securely packaged against impact and water damage. Shipments valued over $100 are insured against damage in transit. Damaged items may need to be returned to us or retained for inspection by the carrier or insurance company. If you receive a damaged shipment, let us know as soon as possible.

RETURNS

We will accept returns per our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. Please notify us by email prior to making a return. All returns should be made in the original packaging, if possible. We recommend insuring all returns and requiring a signature confirmation from us upon return delivery.
