I typically try to fulfill orders within 3 business days. Sometimes it takes a few days longer during busy times of year. You will get a notification email once your order ships.
Shipments within the US are sent via USPS Priority Mail. Deliveries generally take 1–3 business days to arrive. The delivery is guaranteed and tracking is included.
International shipments are sent via USPS First Class International. Deliveries generally take between 7–21 days to arrive, although there are no guarantees or reliable tracking included. If you are interested in expedited or guaranteed delivery you can email me before hand, however it will most likely be prohibitively expensive.
Large prints are put in plastic sleeves and rolled up inside of a 4" shipping tube. Smaller prints are sleeved and backed with chipboard and shipped flat inside a sturdy envelope.
Occasionally prints are lost or get damaged in transit. If you have any issues like this with your order please let me know via email: firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll take care of it.
My prints are all exhibition grade, giclée art prints. This just means that you are getting the same high quality print that I would send to display in any art gallery or exhibition.
The prints are on 64 lb., 100% cotton rag, acid-free, fine art paper. They are printed with a combination of 9 Epson UltraChrome K3 archival inks.
The prints are not fade proof, however they are fade resistant and are meant to last a very long time. They should not fade very much at all over the course of one lifetime, except if in extreme conditions, like outdoors in constant, direct sunlight.
I'm not sponsored by any framing companies and I don't sell my work framed, but I always recommend two online options that I've personally used. The first is Art To Frames, they have a lot of options for affordable prices. The second is Level Frames, their frames are much higher quality, but they are more expensive.
My personal preference for my work is usually a simple, natural light wood frame with no matting. For example, I like this frame by Art To Frames.
I work digitally, meaning that I draw into the computer using a digital pen and tablet. I find this process gives me more flexibility during the creation process and still allows me to achieve the hand generated look of a piece created with a range of traditional tools.
