FAQ - SHIPPING
Most of our printed products come from sources in the USA and a few products ship from China. All use different shipping companies due to the variety of products offered.
You may receive shipments from multiple locations depending on what you have ordered. (Ie. socks and totebags ship from the USA and vegan leather bags come from China). Normal shipping time is 5 to 10 business days depending on your location. A tracking email is sent to you as soon as product is on it way. Everything is printed as it's ordered -nothing is sitting on shelf getting old 'n musty, it's fresh off the press. Production time is 3 to 5 business days so total time from order to your door is average 7 to 14 days. If you live in the US it may arrive sooner.
Original Art Work
Original art work is shipped from Calgary, Alberta, Canada via Canada Post or courier depending on your location. All original art is shipped insured.
We package all original artwork ourselves to ensure it is as protected as possible. No third-party packing companies are used.
Because all original art is shipped insured, if it arrives damaged we can initiate remaking the piece for you or issue a refund.
If your parcel arrives damaged, do not open it until you take some pictures of the unopened damaged package. The shipping carrier usually wants proof of damaged packaging to process claims. Take pictures (capturing their barcode and/or tracking info) and email us to start the claim process.
Shipping time will vary depending on your location. Within Canada 2 to 5 business days. To USA aprx 7 to 10 days.
With original art, you are asked to email us to confirm availability since the pieces are often 'one of's'. At that time, if you want faster options we can provide a quote for your approval.
Pick up for original artwork is available in the Calgary area.
