Welcome to Black & Type!
I bring to you home decorating made easy, with my eclectic collection of humorous, sometimes ironical, chic, whimsical, modern and stylish art prints inspired by everyday life, family and the little things that make each day unique.

Choose from the range of quirky typography to modern and rustic designs; you are sure to find the perfect art print for your space - be it in the home, your office, the nursery... even the man cave! I've tried to cover the whole home / office resulting in an ever-growing emporium of art print designs.

So, cheer up your space! See some inspiring words daily as a reminder! Give a special gift! Let someone know that you care! Put a smile on a gorgeous face!
Bring some more happiness within the world... any reason is always a good reason! :-)

Returns and exchange details
Your happiness and satisfaction with your Black & Type print is very important to me. It's something that I take very seriously!
However, I do understand that sometimes things can be overlooked. If there is something that you are not happy with, please send me a message so we can see how I can help to put that smile back on your face.

In the unlikely event that you feel the Black & Type print/s you received are not what you expected (and remember, I want you to love it!), you are able to return the print/s in their original condition within 10 days for a refund or exchange - minus any shipping charges or costs. Please contact Black & Type (owner: Frida) before returning an item so I am aware that it will be arriving and we can work on a resolution. I want you to love your Black & Type print and nothing less than that is satisfactory for me.
Please note: you will be responsible for the costs incurred for return shipping charges.

Your Black & Type print/s are double checked for quality and condition before they leave my shop; each order is carefully wrapped in a protective sleeve, beautifully wrapped in tissue paper and placed in a rigid cardboard mailer or mailing tube (for prints A3 and larger in size) to minimise any damage.
If your Black & Type print arrives damaged, please contact me straight away so that I can make arrangements to replace the art print and follow up with the relevant postal service.
I require proof of damage (being photos of the damaged art work) to claim compensation from the postal services.

If you do not receive your purchased Black & Type print within up-to 20 business days from your print sent email from Etsy, it is your responsibility to contact Black & Type and notify me, so I can try to locate your art print and/or arrange a replacement or refund.

PLEASE NOTE: All approved purchases will be sent to you via your Etsy shipping address, unless you advise otherwise in the Seller Notes. Please check these are correct - if I am in doubt, I will contact you for verification but it's easier for both us if these are up-to-date.
If an item returns to me due to incorrect address error (not made on my part), it is buyers responsibility to pay shipping costs for resending.

PROCESSING - All standard orders are shipped via Australia Post within 7 business days of purchase/payment clearing, unless otherwise notified.

You will be sent a shipping confirmation to your Etsy EMAIL once your order is SHIPPED OUT (you can also view this information on your order receipt).

TIMEFRAMES - Within Australia, you should receive your art print up-to 7 business days after you receive your shipping notice.

For International Orders, Australia Post currently advises that post to most International destinations is estimated to arrive up-to 20 business days from the print being sent (you will receive an advisement email from Etsy when this occurs)..
That said, the quoted time frame is an APPROXIMATE indication of time only. With international shipping, be aware that transit times can and do vary due to holidays, postage delays, delays with customs, etc... and are totally out of my control. Having said that, long delays are very rare.

Please just note: International shipping has NO tracking provided (unless you've purchased it additionally) so therefore I am unable to provide tracking to you or track your item unfortunately. If you wish to purchase tracking, please send me a convo, prior purchase, and we can organise this for you.

DELAYS - If your order seems to be delayed, please check with your local post office initially, if they have your package. If they don't, please send me a convo on here or via email [] and we will see what we can do to resolve the situation.

TRACKING - International tracking from Australia can be excessively expensive and not very detailed. In order to keep your shipping costs down there is NO TRACKING provided on standard shipping / air mail shipping. If you wish to have tracking on your shipping, please let me know in advance as there will be an additional costs incurred.

IT'S A GIFT - If your Black & Type print is a gift to someone fabulous, leave a message in the ** Notes to Seller ** with any message that you would like added and I will add a special gift cards with your words to make sure that your special words will be sent with your gift.
