Terms of Service

POSTAGE

Postage will be calculated on the dollar value of the order. We reserve the right to offer you a refund or negotiate payment if the website postage price is vastly different form the actual price, although we have worked out our pricing carefully and it should be acceptable 99% of the time. If postage seems too expensive, customers are more than welcome to contact us directly for a quote. Deliveries are usually made with Australia Post, who will email a tracking ID to the customer. If you don’t receive your tracking number from Australia Post please contact us directly. In some instances we will use a different freight service depending on the purchase and delivery address, this will be discussed with customer before despatch. Please note when shipping paintings, unless it is very small, we will normally un-stretch the work and send it rolled with the bars. We will include instructions regarding how to re-stretch the work. This is the safest way to send canvases. Please contact us if you would like to discuss further – we are always happy to help and find the best option for you.

You will be emailed a receipt upon purchase online and another one will be enclosed with your goods when they are sent.
