How long will it take my item to ship?
When you order merchandise traditionally it will ship within 1-2 business days (barring no issues with your shipping address or payment processing). If you ordered prints, they may take up to 7 business days for items to ship as the prints need to be created. We have a split shipping process where prints ship out separately from merchandise.
I want to order something, but the shipping is high. Why don’t you offer free shipping for everything like Amazon?
We are still a small company run by three people and two amazing fulfillment companies that assist us greatly. The shipping that is calculated on the website is based on weight of items and dimensions. The events of the past couple of years have driven up shipping costs tremendously and we are working very hard to do our best to offer competitive rates but we will never be able to come close to a multibillion dollar company like Amazon.
Can I do payment plans for an original on your site?
Yes, I offer payment plans on originals only. There is a non refundable deposit of 1/3 the price of the original. Then monthly payment plans can be customized to suit your needs. Note: They cannot go beyond 10 months however. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire!
Why do items with FREE shipping have shipping costs at check out?
My site has a handling fee on all items regardless of free shipping. There is no way to separate handling fees per item on Shopify. Shopify combines the shipping fee and handling fee all in one at check out. It doesn’t allow the option to say “Handling Fee” at check out. So what you are seeing is the handling fee even though the item has free shipping.
