Orders are processed in the order they are received and usually ship within 24 to 72 business hours of receipt, unless otherwise specified. Please keep in mind that if you place your order after 12pm PST on Friday, your order will not process or ship until the following week as some of our offices and distribution centers are not open for business over the weekend. This includes all orders that require expedited shipping. Although most international shipments arrive in 7-10 business days but please allow for up to 2-3 weeks for delivery. For large orders, if there are additional shipping charges, we will email you prior to processing and shipping your order. All unframed calligraphy and painting art works will be packed in mailing tubes. Framed paintings will be carefully wrapped with bubble wrap and packed in boxes with packing peanuts. All orders will be charged for a $35.00 shipping and handling fee.
Any customs or import duties are charged once the order reaches its destination country and must be paid by the recipient of the order. We have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country. You may want to contact your local customs office for further information. We will do our best to minimize the custom fee for you.
Damaged artworks must be returned to us prior to processing a claim. Once the claim is processed you will be issued a store credit. If an artwork shipment is lost or damaged during shipping, please inform us via phone, live chat or email at email@example.com
