How to package your art cards

Do you offer Print-On-Demand and ship to my customer?2018-10-15T16:29:35-07:00

We print and ship directly to artists who are ordering at a wholesale level, and they distribute the prints to their customers.

At this time we don’t offer a print on demand and fulfillment service.

Do you ship internationally?2018-10-15T16:55:51-07:00

Unfortunately at this time we only ship to customers within Canada as we have found the charges involved in shipping and duty fees to send to the USA and beyond to be cost prohibitive.

How much is shipping?2018-10-16T15:49:19-07:00

We ship orders by Canada Post Expedited mail, with insurance and tracking.

Cost is based on the weight and size of your order, along with your location in Canada; in accordance to Canada Post’s pricing.

For clients ordering large volumes we compare costs with sending by courier, and use the most cost efficient and timely service.

What should I do if my parcel is damaged in transit?2018-10-16T15:26:03-07:00

We take great care to package your order safely and securely. It’s extremely rare for items to be damaged in transit, however if there’s a problem with your delivery please take photographs of the outside of the package and the damaged items and email the pictures in to us. Include a list of the items damaged and we will re-print and send out to you as quickly as possible.

All orders are shipped by Canada Post Expedited mail with insurance and tracking for your peace of mind.

What payment methods do you accept?2018-10-16T12:50:53-07:00

If you need to pay via credit card you can do so at our print studio location, or ask us to send you an secure email form to fill out with your card details.

We can keep a record of your card details offline for repeat orders, with your permission.

Please note we do not accept Amex cards.

I took a photo with my cellphone, can I make a print from this?2018-10-16T13:09:08-07:00

Generally speaking self shot images are typically only suitable for art cards, this is because the camera sensor is small and doesn’t capture enough detail for the image to be printed any larger.

However, if your photo is good quality and the lighting is even we may be able to print up to a size of 11’x14″ – we can look at your image file and advise you first.

*We have a top of the range camera and a professional lighting system in our studio, enabling us to take crystal clear evenly lit photo’s of your work for print reproduction.
