How long does it take for my order to be processed?
Fulfillment: We take about 2-7 business days to create apparel products (t-shirts etc.) and 2-5 business days for non-apparel (posters etc.) products. Then you should add shipping times on top of that. Speed and price depends on product type and destination. Shipping: You have several shipping options to choose from - they can range from within 1-8 business days (1-20 for international orders) depending on the courier and level of service you select.
Do you ship to all countries?
We ship internationally to all countries except Cuba, Iran, and North Korea.
What does Flat Rates in shipping options mean?
Flat rates are the default pricing for shipping. The type of shipping method used depends on the availability and price offered by the carrier. Whereas the rest of the options are Live rates, which are calculated based on the exact weight and destination of the order. They're also the only shipping method that offers express options, like FedEx Standard Overnight or FedEx international rates. Live rates are often cheaper than the flat rates, especially for international orders.
Does FedEx ship to PO Boxes?
They don't ship to US based PO Boxes, but will ship to some international PO Boxes. We will not refund a FedEx shipping rate if a US based PO box is entered.
What tracking options are there?
All orders that are delivered within the United States by USPS have full tracking available. For international orders, full tracking will only be available for orders sent through International Priority, which costs a bit more.
My order has been sent, why don't I see the tracking info?
Your order has been sent; however, it can take up to 48 hours for tracking info to show up in the USPS system.
Why don't canvases ship to Australia?
In order to protect its ecosystem from invasive foreign species, Australia has strict laws for what can be imported into the country. Wood products are especially regulated as they can contain timber borers, insect pests, bark, and other potential biohazards.
The regulations and treatment processes for importing wooden products into Australia are incredibly difficult to maintain, so for that reason we do not ship canvases there.

How are your products packaged for shipment?
Because of the variety of products we fulfill, we package each item based on dimension requirements to ensure protection during shipment. Generally, posters are shipped in kraft tube boxes with plastic end caps. Frames and canvases are usually shipped in corrugated boxes, ranging in dimensions of 26x20x18 to 28x5.5x38.
How do you package frames?
Frames are first wrapped in tissue paper to protect them from scratches and are then wrapped in a layer of adhesive bubble wrap. Finally, they are wrapped in a thicker, more durable bubble wrap that will add extra protection during shipment.

Bubble wraps are made from a minimum of 15% recycled plastic and 10% post-consumer content. Our kraft tubes are made from 70-100% post-consumer recycled content and 0-30% secondary recycled content.
How should I wash my printed garments?
You've purcahsed your favorite items - it's important that you know how to take care of them in the best way possible! We suggest using the follow instructions when washing your garment:
*Machine wash cold, inside-out, gentle cycle with mild detergent and similar colors. Only non-chlorine bleach, when necessary. No fabric softeners. Tumble dry low, or hang-dry for longest life. Cool iron inside-out if necessary. Do not iron decoration. Do not dry clean.*
For pillows, remember that the pillow insert should only be handwashed.
Can I set my washing and drying on a high setting( high temperature)?
Be wary of washing and drying on a high setting, especially when the garment is 100% cotton.
High temperature washes can fade and crack the print, and high temperature dryer settings can shrink the garment, as well as damage the print.
