How do I track my order?
You will be emailed a tracking link once your order is picked up by our courier. International orders that select an untracked service will not receive a tracking link.

Australian orders are tracked and insured. The Rest of the World have the option of standard mail tracked/insured courier or untracked/uninsured courier.
What courier company do you use?
We use Post Haste to ship our New Zealand orders Monday to Friday on a signature-required service, someone will need to be home to sign for the delivery otherwise a card to call will be left.

What is the return/refund policy?
If the print arrives damaged during shipment, I will gladly send you a replacement print. Please take a photo of the damaged package and print and email it to me here with your order number and a short explanation. Thank you. :)
How are orders packed for shipping?
Unframed A4, A3, A2 prints are sent flat in a plastic sleeve with backing board between two pieces of corrugated cardboard and placed in a mailer bag or wrapped in brown paper. Unframed A1-A0 prints are rolled with acid-free tissue and brown paper and put into a tube. All framed prints are cardboard cornered, a piece of stiff card is secured over the glass then bubble wrapped and put in a custom fit box and marked with fragile tape.
What paper/ink do you use?
The prints are printed on luxurious thick bright white fine art paper (either glossy or matte - depending on what is best fit for the individual artwork). The prints are made with 10 archival quality pigment based inks (to put this in perspective, your standard at home color inkjet printer usually has only 3 colors). These inks are guaranteed a vivid and luminous color range to preserve the look of the original artwork, and are designed to last over 200 years without fading. Lastly, I produce each print at 600dpi, which gives insanely realistic detail that is virtually indiscernible from the original artwork (compared with the more commonly used 300dpi).
Do the prints have a margin/border?
Yes, the margin will vary depending on the original aspect ratio of the artwork, but there is usually at least a 1/4" margin on the left and right sides, and at least a 1/2" margin on the top and bottom edges.
