Announcement    Update 3/25/21: We will finally have normal 285 Aurora Fine Art matte paper back in stock our large map reprints in early April. We will use the slightly thinner 250 Aurora Fine Art until then.

Unfortunately, we cannot ship to a AFO/FPO/DPO address. Please use a CONUS shipping address if you decide to order from us. Using USPS for AFO/FPO/DPO orders has taken up to 2.5 months for delivery with extremely poor tracking updates.

UPDATE 2/15/21 - Due to a shortage of our normal 285 GSM Aurora Fine Art paper used for our large reprints, we will be temporarily using the slightly thinner 250 GSM Aurora Fine Art paper for some of our vintage reprints, which still a finer paper than many other storefronts use for their large-sized reprints.
This message is long, but please read.

Other notes:
1. We are currently shipping orders Monday through Friday, but this could change if pandemic stay-at-home orders are enacted here in Ohio. We do ship all our USPS Priority Mail and we provide the Tracking number when we mark an order shipped. In order to keep our prices competitive and to reduce the number of trips out, we currently do not ship via express mail.

2. To avoid any shipping delays or mis-delivery, please, please, please check the shipping address showing for your order prior to finalizing your order. If you need to change the shipping address and were not able to change it prior to paying, please send us a convo/message here on Etsy as soon as you can.

3. All of our prints are *made to order*. We try to print in sequence of when we receive our orders from our two stores. We work as quickly as possible since we take pride in keeping our customers as happy as we humanly can. However, to be fair to all of our customers, we cannot honor any requests to "bump up" an order or to expedite printing and shipping. As mentioned above, we will not ship items via express shipping unless you contact us prior to placing your order. If we are able to ship via express mail, we will need to set up a custom order to include the Express mail charge.

4. None of our prints are sold framed. We work out of our small house; so we aren't able to offer framed/matted prints, but we do recommend checking your local art/craft supply store and/or the following websites: www.craigframes.com, arttoframe.com, or framebridge.com. Craig Frames also has an Etsy storefront! Check them out.

5. If your order came in a shipping tube, please remove your order from the shipping tube soon as possible. This helps aid in the print flattening itself before placing into the frame(s). The longer your order stays in the tube, the longer it takes for your print to be flattened. If needed, place clean paper above and below your print (covering all of it) and carefully place books on the corners and edges.

6. Additionally, please double check the size (and color version, if applicable) of the print you are buying. Please make sure you absolutely love the size and color/design of the print that you purchase prior to completing your order. Returns and exchanges are not accepted except for UPS/USPS delivery damage or lost/stolen items (see our shop policies for more details). Please contact us immediately, if your item arrived damaged.
Due to the nature of map reprints and all of our other printed items, we do not restock prints that have already been shipped to another customer. As a courtesy to all of our buyers and to ensure quality assurance, you will always receive a brand new print and never a previously-returned item.

7. CANCELLATIONS:
Cancellations (for a full refund) are accepted, as long as they requested within 4 hours of placing your order.

8. LATE ARRIVING ORDERS: Unfortunately, we are not able to give or promise you a delivery date since we can't control how quickly an order is delivered once it leaves our hands. We do not give refunds for an order arriving late because we cannot control UPS/USPS delivery delays, especially during the pandemic.

9. If you have not received your order with 7 days of us shipping your order, we strongly encourage you to call USPS. For items being delivered via USPS, please call your local post office's number rather than the 1-800 number since it is no longer staffed by humans. (Please let us know as well in case you need our contact info, especially opening a missing mail case..see below.) To find the phone number for your local post office, conduct a search the closet post office for your zip code on USPS.com:

https://retail-pi.usps.com/retailpi/actions/index.action.

The search result kind of hides the phone number below the street address and the 1-800 when you expand the details. If you are not able to speak to a human on the local number, dropping by your local post office is *very* effective. Quite often, we have found when customers have gone into their local post office to complain, the order shows up shortly after that. But with the pandemic, delays are to be expected.

We also recommend your opening a missing mail case with the Post Office at: https://www.usps.com/help/missing-mail.htm

10. We reserve the right to contact you before printing to verify the size and color (if applicable) of the print(s) you have ordered as well as your shipping address. This is meant to help you receive exactly what you intended to order and to avoid mis-deliveries.

Please see our shop policies page for more info. If you still have further questions, don't hesitate to send us a convo.

Thanks, Xiaojing & Justin

Old maps and other vintage reprints

We're Xiaojing and Justin and we've been living in the Cleveland suburbs over 9 years. Since 2013, we've been selling our graphic design prints on our other store, 8RedFishCreative. But we like maps and other old vintage prints and we've amassed a fairly good-sized collection of them. In fact we own two editions of Johnson's Family Atlases - 1862 and 1870 to exact. Now we would like to share our passion with others in the form of map reprints and reprints of other old prints.

In additional to our wide-format Epson 3880 and Epson SureColor P8000 printers, we use archival inks and fine art paper from Red River Paper to give you a high-quality print that you can hand down to the next generation. (Of course, don't expose your print to harsh, direct sunlight. )

We have an occasionally updated blog at www.oldparlorprints.com

Returns and exchange details
Please make sure you absolutely love the size and color/design of the digital print or map reprint that you purchase. Returns and exchanges are not accepted except for post office damage/lost/stolen items (see below for more details). Due to the nature of map reprints and our other reprints, we prefer not to restock prints that have already been shipped to another customer. As a courtesy to all of our buyers and to ensure quality assurance, you will always receive a brand new print and never a returned item).

Note: Effective 12/26/2017, we reserve the right to contact you before printing to verify the size and color (if applicable) of the print(s) you have ordered. This is meant you receive exactly what you intended to order.

CANCELLATIONS:
Cancellations (for a full refund) are accepted, long as they requested and are made within 4 hours of placing your order.

Refunds for Returns/Exchanges:

UPDATED 10.21.2016: Please measure your wall before ordering. Due to the amount and cost of archival ink, cost of paper, and the special handling in trimming and packaging of the prints, we can no longer offer exchanges for the wrong size or wrong color chosen.

All large-sized reprints include a .25" white trim on all sides. For example, if you are ordering a 18" x 24" size of a map reprint, the map dimensions will be 17.5 x 23.5". This white space is covered by your frame's "overhang"/"lip" that holds the glass in place. This is especially help on the map reprints that are printed in multiple sections (e.g., 4 pieces of 18x24 each).

Items that have arrived damaged due to the Post Office (very, very rare, but it can happen): Please let us know as soon as possible. Please also attach a photo of the damaged print. We will make arraignments to replace your print.

No refunds are given for digital downloads (e.g., calendars) or for personalized/custom orders.

Update 1/10/2016: We will no longer give refunds for items that arrived late due to the Post Office taking longer than expected. We have noticed orders going to the Houston area and the southern areas of California have been taking longer than what the Post Office has listed as the expected date of delivery. This includes orders going via priority mail shipping. These delays are beyond our control. If you are ordering this as a gift for someone else and looking for it to be delivered by a certain date, please factor that into your time frame, especially if you live in one of the areas noted above.

Items that have arrived damaged due to the Post Office (very, very rare, but it can happen): Please let us know as soon as possible. Please also attach a photo of the damaged print. We will make arraignments to replace your print.

Lost/stolen orders:
If you think your order is lost in the mail, please first check the tracking details. If the package is listed as "in transit", the tracking information should indicate an expected delivery date. If the tracking information indicates the package has delivered but you have not received it, contact us as soon as possible. Please, let us know if the package is lost. We will do our best with USPS by filing a "lost mail report" and get your order to your hands one way or another. However, we also recommend going to your local post office to inquire. We've found when we've had customers do this, orders almost always appear the very next day! Plus, check around other parts of your residence - some postal carriers can and have been known to put a package within the screen door of a side entrance or in the bushes. If need be, you should also open an official case with USPS. The postal service does take mail theft seriously. While they do that, let us know what is happening so we can send a replacement order if need be.

Additionally, we have noticed with recent orders (Summer and Fall 2015) going to the Houston, TX; Colorado Springs, CO, or San Diego/Chula Vista, CA areas, that the orders have been delivered later than that the expected delivery date given to us by the post office when we mailed the orders. Sometimes, it can be a week or even 8 days late, especially in the Houston area, and the local sorting facilities and local post offices are not updating their tracking system. (Why, we don't know.)
Payment
Ohio purchases are subject to a 8% sales tax since we are based in Cuyahoga county. Trades are not accepted.
Shipping
Important update: Due to the ongoing pandemic and Christmas shopping rush, severe delivery delays are occurring with UPS/USPS/FedEx and we have no control on how quickly they will deliver your order. We do ship out our orders within our processing times, which is in business days (not counting weekends and legal holidays). We cannot promise a delivery date since we cannot control how quickly the shipping carriers are fulfilling deliveries.

Most orders are shipped within 3-5 business days.

DOMESTIC customers: For 11x14 and smaller sized orders are shipped in a sturdy, custom-sized photo mailer with a thick piece of backing board for added protection, and usually take 2-4 business days. For everything else, we carefully roll and ship your order in a heavy-duty shipping tube via USPS priority mail so you don't need to wait long.

INTERNATIONAL: At this time, we are not shipping international.

TRACKING INFO will be sent to you once your items are packed and includes a link to check the status of the shipment.
Additional policies and FAQs
For gift receipts/gift messages: Let us know in the notes when checking out and we will leave the price off the gift receipt for your gift order. Any gift messages are printed on the gift receipt.

Please keep on eye on your's tracking (either here on Etsy or via the Post Office tracking page/Informed Delivery) and retrieve your order as quickly as possible. Besides reducing the chance of porch thieves taking your order, the less time your print and its packaging is exposed to humidity/moisture/elements, the better.

If your order came in a shipping tube, please remove your order from the shipping tube as possible. This help aid in the print flattening itself before placing into the frame(s). The longer your order stays in the tube, the longer print needs to be flattened. If needed, place clean paper above and below your print (covering all of it) and carefully place books on the corners and edges.

Colors: All monitors display colors a little differently. The actual color of your item may vary a bit from what you see on your screen. We do strive to make sure the print matches what our Apple's monitor shows.
