---- HOW DOES IT WORK? ----

STEP 1 EMAIL: When you place your order email me at art [!at] alanamccarthy.com Attach a couple clear photo references of your pet and write down what you would like me to paint them as. Maybe describe their personality and any special traits and features.

STEP 2 SKETCH: I email you back with a sketch or two of my ideas. You are free to make up to 3 changes, or if you like it, tell me to go ahead.

STEP 3 FINAL PAINTING: When the painting is complete I will scan and email you a low res file. If you're happy with it I'll pack it up and ship it away to its new home.

TIMING: Please allow at least 3-4 weeks for this whole process to unfold. I work on a first come, first served list system and sometimes get backlogged - especially around the Holidays. I will let you know my schedule when you order.
Please let me know if you need it for a special occasion. I'll do my best to let you know my schedule and speed up the process.

THE FINE PRINT: The original painting is yours, but I always reserve the copyright as well as the right to make prints from the image. (Your pet will be famous! I will always ask you for permission to sell prints.)

You're not allowed to use it for commercial use, but are more than welcome to post it to blogs and social media as long as you link back to my Etsy shop, facebook.com/geekypet or instagram.com/geekypet Share the love!

--------- SHIPPING ---------

SHIPPING: It will be lovingly packed flat in a hard cardboard mailer to ensure it gets to your door undamaged. It will ship as a small package and have tracking as well as insurance. I charge $20 for shipping within Canada and the US, $30 for international. Any overages larger than $5 after shipping and supplies will be refunded.

TAXES: 13% HST will be collected for residents of Canada.

Any questions? Please feel free to contact me!

All prints are sold unframed. They are digital prints on 60 pound cover stock.

SHIPPING: All prints are shipped flat in sturdy cardboard mailers through Canada Post as REGULAR LETTER MAIL. They do not have tracking numbers.

Once your order has been shipped, it is in the care of the courier and / or postal service. I am not liable for any errors made by these services, but am always happy to try do everything in my power to work with you and the postal system to correct orders.

US - it should arrive in 4-10 business days.
Canada - it should arrive in 2-10 business days.
International - it should arrive in 6-10 business days.

EXPEDITED SHIPPING: If you need the prints faster or would prefer a method with a tracking number please let me know. I will quote you and am willing to make a new PayPal invoice for the additional cost.

CUSTOMS forms will be filled out with "art print - Cost $5.00." Hopefully they clear customs easily, but I can't guarantee that there won't be any delays or additional payments due.

COMMISSIONS: Original paintings will be safely packaged and shipped with tracking and insurance. I price shipping on these at $20 and will refund any major overpayments.

Deposits on custom commissions are NON-REFUNDABLE once the sketch has begun.

Manufactured items:

PENCIL CASES - 7-10 days to produce
PILLOW CASES - 7-10 days to produce
UNDERWEAR - 7-10 days to produce
(No returns on these items, sorry)

These are made upon order and ship directly from Montreal. They vary in manufacture time from 1-2 weeks.

Here is my manufacturer's shipping policy:

My manufacturer is located in Canada, but we ship from both Canada and the USA. This means that for most drop ship orders shipping to Canada and the USA will never encounter duties or customs fees. This is due to the fact that we handle all importing ourselves.

Currently, US and international orders are shipped on Tuesdays and Fridays from within the USA. Orders to US customers generally take 2-6 business days once shipped within the USA. International orders generally take 6-10 business days but may be delayed by the customs of your country. All orders shipped domestically within the US will have a tracking number that can be tracked with USPS. International orders will not have a tracking number due to the fact that they are untraceable once they leave the USA.

Orders for Canadian customers normally ship within 2-8 business days of the order is placed. Shipping to Eastern Provinces takes about 3-4 business days and shipping to Western provinces can take 4-7 business days.

International or wholesale orders may be subject to customs fees or duties of your country. Unfortunately, the manufacturer does not cover these fees so please contact us if you have concerns regarding your order.

We work Monday to Friday and are closed on weekends and all Canadian holidays. All production and shipping times are in business days and do not include days that we closed.

Once your order has been shipped, it is in the care of the courier and / or postal service. We are not liable for any errors made by these services, but we are always happy to do everything in our power to work with you and the postal system to correct orders.

Once you have received your parcel, please open it with care. We cannot be liable for any items damaged during the opening of your parcel.
