Transit Times Information

To be safe please allow at least 1 extra day since transit time is an approximation based upon when the order arrives at the delivery service's sort facility (not when the order is placed). Various factors can affect actual delivery time from weather to sorting delays within the shipping network.

Usually an additional day greater than UPS Ground.

About International Shipping

Shipping is calculated based on domestic rate charge plus an additional 20% of the order subtotal. Some items such as small photo prints and gift items may be less. Transit times can vary. Recipient is responsible for any additional duty fees and taxes imposed by the destination country.

International transit times vary according to how long an item remains in customs. Please allow at least 2 weeks. The customer is responsible for all custom and duty fees billed by the destination country. U.S. rates apply when shipping via the postal service to Hawaii, Alaska, APOs, and FPOs unless size and weight restrictions occur.

Orders shipping outside the U.S. and which prints are 30 inches or more in width or height may accrue additional charges. FinerWorks will contact you prior to processing for approval of any additional charges or if there are any issues with shipping large prints outside the U.S.

Shipping

Shipping Prints Flat

Mounted prints are packaged in oversized corrugated boxes for added protection. Small to mid size paper prints on fine art papers are usually shipped flat if they can safely fit within a 24x30 inch or smaller area touching the sides of the package. Some exceptions may occur with International orders or if the order also contains prints which normally would be rolled.

Shipping Prints Rolled

Unmounted canvas, regular photo stock prints and and posters will be shipped rolled. Fine art paper prints that are too large to ship flat to be shipped flat (see above) will be shipped in a sturdy corrugated shipping tube.

Shipping non-prints

Other products such as coffee gifts and keepsakes, stationary, etc, will be shipped in various types of packaging.
