How long will it take to receive my print?
Unframed prints arrive in approximately 2 - 2 1/2 weeks. Framed prints arrive in approximately 3 weeks. Please note that all prints are made-to-order and we do not stock inventory. Once your print is made by our printer, it must be allowed to dry for 24 hours before being shipped.
Do you ship internationally?
We do ship unframed prints internationally via DHL. Please allow an extra week for delivery. Unfortunately, because of the high shipping cost we do not ship framed prints internationally at this time. However, we are happy to refer you to a local and reputable framer.
How is my order shipped?
All 11x14” prints are shipped inside a fitted plastic sleeve in a rigid mailer. 20x24”, 30x40” and 40x60" prints are shipped in a special fortified tube to guard against bending or damage. Framed prints are shipped via FedEx in a bespoke cardboard box with a fitted interior armature for the frame.
How are your prints made?
All ArtStar prints are printed to the highest industry quality by a fine art printer using fully archival Epson inkjet pigments on Hahnemuhle (cotton rag) paper. This printing method is also known as giclee and differs from digital C-prints or screenprinting. All prints are fully archival and use all-natural materials. All prints are printed with a ½ inch white border to allow for matting and framing and we never crop or otherwise alter our artists’ images.
What is an edition?
An edition is a limited run of a specific piece of artwork. For example, an edition of 15 means that only 15 examples of that work will be printed – ever. If you own edition 2/15 then you own the second editioned piece of that print run. Once an edition is closed, no further prints will be made of it at that size.
How do I know my print is authentic?
All prints are accompanied by a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity to maintain the integrity of your print. The authenticity card contains the artist’s signature, the edition number and the title of the work, as well as the ArtStar certification of authenticity.
How are your frames made?
All mats are acid free and custom cut to perfectly fit your artwork. Mats are approximately 4” wide. All prints are framed by a professional framer and have Plexiglas fronts to prevent against breakage or scratching and a taped backing with the authenticity card mounted on the back. All framed prints are accompanied by a hanger and nail so that they are ready for the wall.
How do I care for my print?
Avoid touching the surface of your print. Oils can be transferred to the print from your hands and rough treatment can scratch the surface and harm the pigment. We recommend that you frame your print as soon as possible as this will help to protect the work once it is on display.
