F A Q

 

IMPORTANT COVID-19 POSTAL NOTICE:

Original paintings are sent via couriers and operating as normal. I am currently sending Art Prints via Express Australia Post - at no extra cost to you. Whilst most orders will still arrive within expected time frames, there are some unpredictable delays that are out of my control. Please be understanding of this.

1.  Do you take commissions?

Yes, I'm currently taking on commissions, if you're wanting a commission piece painted please email me at ambergittinsart@gmail.com to discuss further. You can also download a Commission Information Sheet in the contact section above.

2.  How can I be the first to know when new paintings are available?

Follow me on Instagram, I'm here everyday showing you what I'm up to. Or sign up to my mailing list (above) to get all my art worthy news delivered to your inbox. Plus you will be instantly emailed a 15% off code to use on your next order.

3.  What medium do you use?

I love to use Acrylic paint, I love the fast drying nature of the paint as I tend to work quite quickly with my brushstrokes.

4.  What are your finishing techniques?

The sides of your painting are painted so that the picture continues around the edge of the canvas. This gives it a completed look and you do not need to add a frame as it looks nice as is. Your painting is finished with coats of gloss varnish to protect and enhance the beautiful colours of the work. The stretched canvases come with a wire across the back which is attached to D-Rings so your painting is ready to hang as soon as it is delivered to your home.

5.  Do you ship internationally?

YES I do! Free international shipping on my original paintings. 

6.  Important original painting shipping information. 
Free shipping on your original painting. Your artwork will be fully insured for shipping.
Large original stretched paintings are packed very carefully in custom made sturdy cardboard boxes with layers of bubble wrap, they will come ready to hang on your wall. The canvas paper paintings are carefully rolled, wrapped in tissue paper and bubble wrap and mailed in a sturdy mailing tube.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: If you are outside of Australia your painting will be taken off its stretcher bars, carefully rolled, bubble wrapped and placed in a sturdy mailing tube for transit - this service is free. I do this for two reasons, firstly it is safer for a original painting to travel this way, heavy objects have been known to unfortunately damage a stretched canvas in long distance transit.  Secondly, shipping large boxes overseas can be an eye boggling enormous cost, so the money that you save with free shipping will more than cover the cost of getting it re-stretched by your framer.

Please note that for international orders, any taxes and duties due upon delivery are the sole responsibility of the purchaser. Also please understand that I will insure each artwork for the full price and cannot reduce the insurance price to suit your countries import tax laws.

All original artworks are shipped within 1-3 business days of purchase. You will receive a tracking number via email once your order has been shipped. Orders sent within Australia usually arrive within 10 days from the date of shipping. For international orders, please allow approximately 1-3 weeks for your original artwork to arrive.

Please email me if you have any other questions in regards to shipping.

7.  Important print shipping information. 

My studio is located in Mount Gambier, South Australia.  You're very welcome to collect your purchases if you're a local. Once you’ve chosen your items, just select ‘Local Pickup’ at Checkout and you will not be charged any postage.  Send me an email at ambergittinsart@gmail.com to arrange a day and time for collection.

Shipping is calculated at checkout and will depend on the weight.  All prints are currently being send via Express Australia Post, at no extra cost to you. Tracking is included.

The A3 prints will come flat and are packed very carefully in a rigid mailer to protect them. All other larger prints are carefully rolled, wrapped and mailed in a sturdy mailing tube. Depending on what you order they may come as two separate parcels.

IMPORTANT: for international orders, any taxes and duties due upon delivery are the sole responsibility of the purchaser. Please check with your local customs authority for further information prior to placing an order.

Time frame: All prints are professionally made to order, they generally take up to 4 working days to produce (most A3’s I will have in stock so will be a quicker turnaround) and then will be shipped. I will inform you once they are leaving my studio. Orders sent within Australia usually arrive within 10 days from the date of shipping. For international orders, please allow approximately 1-3 weeks from the date of shipping for your prints to arrive. Please note: with the current Covid 19 crisis around the world, please be understanding of any postal delays you may have within your own country.

Please email me if you have any other questions in regards to shipping.

8.  How can I purchase a painting?

If you are local you can contact me to pop by my studio to view all my available paintings and say hello.

Otherwise all paintings are for sale through this website. If a painting has sold, it will be marked ‘SOLD’ on the top left of each image. Once you have decided on a painting you add it to your cart and follow the prompts to the checkout. I accept credit or debit card, pay pal and afterpay.

If you are in Australia I can also accept payment via direct deposit into my nominated bank account. Please email me first if you would like to do direct deposit before purchasing so I can email you the details for payment. Once funds are in my account the artwork will be shipped/couriered.

9.  What’s your return/exchange policy?

All painting sales are final, no returns or exchanges due to the fragile nature of the artworks. So I cant stipulate this enough that you please double check size etc is definitely what your after before purchasing. If you want to see what it is going to look like in your room before you purchase, you can email me a front on photo of the entire wall and I will email you back an image with the painting on your wall. Try and get the entire wall in with good lighting in your photo so you get a true representation and keep the photo front on, I can't do walls on an angle. Also send me the wall dimensions so I can position the painting to size.

The only exception on returns is for original paintings only, that would be if in the unlikely event that your original artwork is damaged during shipping, then you must please contact me as soon as you receive this artwork with photographs of the damaged goods so we can discuss further.

Please note the colours you see on your screen may be different to the final painting. I try to replicate them as closely as possible but there still may be slight discrepancies as I have no control over your own screen settings. Please email me directly ambergittinsart@gmail.com prior to purchase with any questions or concerns.

All artwork is subject to copyright, and remains the intellectual and creative property of Amber Gittins. It may not be distributed, printed or copied (for business, reselling or corporate use) without permission.
