Shipping & Delivery
Shipping & Freight
Shipping within Australia is calculated using the size, weight and fragility of the item/s to be shipped. This is to help ensure that your purchase arrives intact and undamaged. We use a variety of courier and delivery services depending on the size and fragility of the item. Artworks may be sent by Courier at an additional postage cost than standard post, if they are exceptionally large, fragile (framed artworks) or need to be received within a shorter time frame than usual. Please contact email@example.com BEFORE you make your purchase online, to receive a quote and custom invoice.
As our Limited Edition Prints (unframed) are often stored off site to decrease risk of damage or are printed on demand, please allow 2-4 weeks for your order to arrive. Consequently, any Limited Edition Prints or Original works that are being framed will incur an additional 1-2 week wait time (3-6 weeks in total).
Commisioned Works do not adhere to the aforementioned standard delivery timeframes, due to the custom nature of the order. Approximate commission processing times will be published on our “Commissions” page, for your reference, where applicable. An additional 1-2 weeks should be added for delivery on all approximate Commission completion estimates.
