Yes, we will do our best to update you with as much relevant information regarding your order as we can. 

For every order, you’ll receive an order confirmation email which outlines the timeline of shipment and delivery. 

With the purchase of every original artwork, you’ll receive an email notification to confirm when the artwork will be shipped from the artist’s studio to you. Once on the way, we’ll provide you with tracking information. If there are any changes or delays, we will be sure to let you know. 

With the purchase of Open Edition and Limited Edition prints, you’ll receive an email notification once your order has shipped. Due to the restrictions at our printing facility we’re not able to provide production estimates per order, so please refer to the list of estimated production times above.


When will I get a response to my phone call or email inquiry?
