    Het werd zo snel mogelijk verzonden door de verkoper en ik ben er ongelofelijk blij mee. Het was netjes ingepakt zodat het goed beschermd was. Bij mij was helaas de envelop (en daardoor de prent) lichtjes gekreukt, maar dat lag aan de post en niet aan de verkoper :)

FAQs

I normally use standard shipping. Track and trace methods are very expensive to sent items abroad. So far, I never lost items I send.
In most cases the answer would be no due to the standard shipping option is the most cost friendly option and is not tracked or insured. However you should still contact us with details about the item and we might still offer a partly refund, new item, whole refund or other -depending on the circumstances.
