About your Order

Packaging

I have taken care to create your beautiful artwork and I want to ensure it arrives with you in pristine condition. For this reason, I have put the same amount of thought and love into my packaging as I have my artworks.

For posting, unmounted giclée prints are placed in a compostable and biodegradable sleeve.The sleeve is plastic like in appearance but is made from potato starch so that you can pop it in your food waste bin or compost heap after you have given your print a permanent home. A recycled cardboard backing is put inside the sleeve to ensure the print is supported on its travels, before it is placed in a cardboard backed envelope and sent off on its journey to you.

Prints with a mount will be wrapped in an extra layer of proetction and will have corner protectors covering each edge of the print to prevent any damage whilst in transit.

For international shipping for prints larger than A4 size, they will be rolled in recycled, acid free tissue paper and sealed in a postal tube, to ensure they arrive in perfect condition.

Orders, A2 or larger in size will also be rolled and posted in a cardboard tube to ensure it arrives in the best possible condition.


Postage

All orders are posted using Royal Mail. 

Once you have placed your order it will be dispatched within 1 - 3 working days (excluding pre-orders, please allow 2-3 weeks)
You'll receive an email notification once your order has been dispatched.

Please note there may be import charges and taxes upon receipt into the destination country, these are not included in the price of the painting or shipping, and are the responsibility of the customer.

If your order has not arrived within the above estimated time frame, please allow a further 3 working days and then drop me a message via hello@amirapaints.com.

During busy seasons of the year, i.e. Christmas and global pandemics, unfortunately any postal delays experienced by Royal Mail are out of my control. I accept no responsibility for any orders not arriving in time for intended occasions, this is dependent on when the customer places the order and the capacity of the postal service.

I want your order to arrive as quickly as possible to you, so I will always endeavour to be as transparent as possible about postage and timings.
