Modern tracking number technology and delivery signature requirements leave little room for trouble. Still, packages should be packed using several layers of thick padding and professional-grade protection. Sender assumes all risk. While in our care, we take every precaution to treat your object professionally. Commissioning a photograph means you understand this and will not hold The Heirloomist liable for damage in shipping or while in our care. Our photo studio has a mailroom waiting for your delivery seven days a week.
NO. The art you commission is exclusive to you and we will never sell it. If we want to share your photograph on our websites or a press outlet is interested in sharing your story, we will contact you for permission 100% of the time. And generally it is a lot of fun! From time to time, we may use a photo you send us for promotional purposes.
Yep! Shipping prices apply but we welcome clients from all corners of the world!
