Customer Service: Shipping & Returns
As the COVID-19 virus has disrupted shipping in many countries some Dark Art & Craft orders may be postponed or delayed by US shipping carriers as well as impacting production time. Please contact us before your order if concerned with shipping and production times and we'll be happy to update you with what we know so far. Currently (09/2021) after speaking with our shipping providers most orders have been taking an additional week or more to arrive. Thank you and stay safe!
- Our printing partners are working on a voluntary basis. Everyone who is healthy and willing to work is welcome to but only at their request. Those who can are already working from home remotely during this time.
- We will be working and shipping at a reduced capacity, so production will likely take longer than usual. Extra steps are being taken to ensure the safety of each of our partners, customers and Artists.
- Currently we have had to limit shipping on certain orders and particularly international orders as we can not guarantee swift delivery. Please check with us first if not located in the US during this time.
Dark Art & Craft offers discounted shipping rates calculated at checkout and provided by USPS and DHL. International DHL orders will require additional transit time. Please note prints, framed prints, blankets, pillows and other items can take several days to prepare prior to shipping date. Giclee and art poster prints ship from our Cleveland, Ohio facility unless otherwise noted or a third party product. Prints will arrive lightly rolled in a thick, protective tube. Framed prints come shipping in thick protective boxes. To ensure the protection of your purchase, print may be shipped and arrive separate from other purchases. If you have additional questions or requirements or require expedited shipping please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Free Shipping is currently only available in the USA
