Frequently Asked Questions
- 1. Ordering, Payment, Postage & Delivery?
Ordering online is simpler than ever. Fill out all of the required fields to make your customised artwork, add to cart and pay. Easy peasy!
If you prefer to order over the phone please call Chelsie 0438375938 during AEST business hours. It's appreciated if you have a clear idea of your design ready to articulate. Perhaps make some notes of specific products and their image references - it really helps.
Gift Wrapping and Note Cards:
Sending your gift direct to the lucky recipient - have it beautifully wrapped and a note card attached. Gift wrapping can be purchased separately for $8.00 within the store.
A PDF of any detailed or complex printing may be emailed for checking prior to actually printing. We save on paper that way! A photograph of a flat lay mockup will also be emailed for each artwork you order for checking and approval prior to shipping to make sure you are totally happy with the font, layout and colours used. If something needs to be clarified from the order process we will be in touch too. Please check your emails regularly to ensure there are no delays.
All artworks are securely packaged in bubble wrap, with cardboard over the glass and then placed in a sturdy box. We ship thousands of artworks every year. In the unlikely event that your artwork arrives damaged all you need to do is take a photo of the damage, keep the packaging for a bit and we will be in touch to advise the next step. We will replace any damaged artworks at our cost. (Excluded items shipped internationally where shipping insurance has not been purchased as checkout).

However we need your help to stay on top of the orders - so please check your emails regularly for you 'mockup'. Once that is approved things move swiftly.
The majority of orders are completed and framed on a Tuesday or Wednesday and shipped to arrive by Friday throughout Australia. (In time for all of those birthday parties, baby hospital visits and christenings:)

- 4. Got any tips on frame hanging??
All frames come with either a hook or hanging wire attached ready to hang.
The mini, small and middy frames also have a stand on the back.
The smaller sizes better suit a side table or being grouped together on a wall.
We recommend the middy and medium sized frame or larger for a wall display.
Please check the hanging wire and stand of your art work frame is secure before hanging/displaying your art.
It is not advisable to hang art work above a cot or bed as it may cause injury or damage if it falls.
All frames have glass that is NOT safety glass, so please take care.
