Caring for your Artwork

  • We highly recommend you insure all artwork to cover for loss, theft or damage. 

  • If in any doubt, we highly recommend having artwork framed and hung by a professional tradesman. SOME WORK MAY BE EXCEPTIONALLY HEAVY AND MAY CAUSE PHYSICAL HARM OR DAMAGE.

  • We are not liable for any damage incurred from hanging, displaying, transporting or handling artwork and orders, either to the item itself or the surrounding environment or people.

  • Artwork must be stored and displayed carefully and respectfully to its materials and size. We advise to avoid displaying artwork in direct sunlight or where moisture may be present.

  • Artwork may naturally deteriorate or change over time due to the materials used and this is NOT covered by our returns policy. Please contact us for further information on individual orders to ensure you preserve the life of your artwork.

No longer wanted/Ordered in error

  • Items ordered in error or no longer wanted may be returned as per the returns procedure within 5 days of receipt at the expense of the buyer.

Returns Procedure

  1. Contact us to check if you are required to return an item or order. If you return an item without consulting us we are not liable to offer you a refund or replacement.

  2. Repackage the item/s you wish to return as safely as possible. You will be liable for damage or further damage caused during shipment due to poor packaging. Use the packaging your order arrived in if you can.

  3. Attach any labels or postage we may give you and ensure you book the right level and type of delivery. All return deliveries require shipping insurance (to cover the cost of the order in case it is lost, stolen or damaged during delivery) and a 'signed for' option. Fix all labels and postage as instructed. We strongly recommend you obtain a proof of postage. You are liable for the safe and complete return of the items or order. Failure to do so may mean you are not liable for a refund, replacement or repair.
