Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I do offer custom orders of artwork and personalized prints. Simply message me with what you're looking for and I'll gladly send you an estimate of costs and timeframe.

A completely custom piece of art will cost significantly more than a print, and unfortunately I will not be able to only sell a print of a custom order while keeping the original. Please contact me if you have any questions regarding this policy.

I require a non-refundable 50% down payment on all custom orders.

Wholesale availability

Anything you see for sale here is available wholesale. Minimum opening order is $100. Please contact me with questions, and a little bit about yourself and your store location and I will gladly send along a line sheet with prices and availability.

Returns/Exchanges Policy

All sales are final. I do not offer refunds or returns, but will exchange an item due to damages or other extenuating circumstances (please contact me ASAP).

Customer must contact me within 14 days of delivery. Any damaged merchandise must be photographed with packaging, for proof of damage, as a claim may be made with USPS for damages. No money back on damaged merchandise, customer MUST return damages to receive a new item.

Exchanges can only be made within 30 days of original claim - customer must return item in a timely manner to receive an exchanged item.

Lost or Stolen Packages

Retro Sorrento is not responsible for any lost or stolen packages that are marked as delivered through the USPS tracking system. If a package is lost or stolen, it is the buyers responsibility to make a claim with the USPS and the local authorities. I will not replace lost or stolen orders.

If a package is lost WHILE in transit - the customer and I will work together to file a claim with the USPS, and I will ensure that product is delivered accordingly.
