How do you ensure the safety of my original artwork?

Originals are delivered to a crating company that specializes in the safe arrival of your artwork. Small and larger original artworks are handled according to the requirements due to the size. Smaller artworks may be boxed instead of crated. Craters will wrap your artwork in a special paper that lays on the painted surface, with bubble wrap and foam. It is then crated in a wood box for shipment. This basic service is usually to the driveway delivery address.

The shipper will contact you directly to receive payment and any special instructions or options you might require.  Make sure we have your shipping address if different from your payment information, as well as email and phone number for contact.

Do you offer white glove service?

White glove service is available for an extra cost, with this service the shipper will arrange for the shipment to be brought inside the location and uncrate and remove the debris. You can upgrade for this service, when the shipping company contacts you for payment.

What is your returns policy?

Original and Print artworks are custom made at the time you place your order, and are non-returnable. Please double check your room and doorway measurements before ordering a large, made-to-order artwork piece as it will not be returnable if it does not fit. The only return exception for made-to-order items is damage caused in transit or manufacturer's defect.

Refunds are issued in the original payment form and price, not including original shipping and return shipping charges. Returns must be sent to us in the original packaging.

What if my piece arrives damaged?

If your item arrived damaged or defective, we are happy to arrange for a replacement. Please contact us at to help you with the process. It is essential that you contact us IMMEDIATELY, as well as documenting the damage with photographs of the item, shipping box and any original packing material. We will use these photos to determine if the damage is the fault of the craftsperson/artisan, or of the shipping company. 

For freight deliveries, you MUST be present to inspect your items.  If there is any damage we MUST be notified immediately, and you should not sign off and accept damaged merchandise from the driver unless it is noted on the freight shipping paperwork. With the proper documentation, we will be able to order a replacement item to be sent or issue a refund and have the item returned.  Do not discard the packing materials and shipping box, as these will be required to process the return.

Do you offer a guarantee on work?

Yes, we offer a satisfaction guarantee on your order.


Do you provide frames for the work, and what is the cost?

For original and commissioned artwork, Steve builds custom frames using a variety of wood choices including antiqued wood, lacquered wood, dark woods, and lighter beech woods. Please contact us for pricing and information on frames.
