Sales Tax

Applicable sales tax will be charged on total merchandise, including shipping and handling fees, where applicable, for orders shipped to California.


Domestic Shipping

Limited Runs ships everywhere within the United States. Our shipping charges of $15.00 per item ordered include shipping, handling and private carrier insurance. Shipping varies according to the item type (e.g. rolled, flat, etc.) quantity, and value (for insurance purposes). Certain packages may cost more to ship and insure and you may be contacted if there are additional costs after receipt of shipment.


Is there an expedited shipment option?

Sorry, we do not currently offer expedited shipping. We are working to make your experience great with Limited Runs and are working to be able to offer expedited shipping in the future.

 

If I order more than one item, will they arrive in the same box?

Since some items may be shipped directly from different art dealers, your purchases may arrive in more than one package.

 

Shipping Fees

If you purchase multiple items you will be accessed a shipping fee for each item. Your purchases may come from various locations, and may arrive to you in more than one package. Similarly, depending on the condition of each item (e.g. rolled versus flat) multiple items coming from the same dealer may also be packed in different contains.

 

Why is the fee I’m charged for shipping higher than the postage paid on my envelope?

The USPS, UPS or FedEx charges are for postage only. Our charges are for shipping, insurance and art handling. Art handling costs include the cost of packing materials and the care and labor that is involved in processing, handling the artwork, packing and shipping each piece of art.

Customs Fees

All of our art that is shipped from the U.S. to a foreign country may be subject to customs duties not included in the art price or our shipping, insurance and handling fee. Customs duties are set and collected by the government of the country where your order is delivered, not by Limited Runs. Unfortunately, we can’t discount or alter customs duties in any way or reimburse you for them. We declare packages as printed posters for the value of the artwork and cannot change the declaration to say anything else.

 

What is Limited Runs’ insurance policy?

Limited Runs’ packages are insured directly by the shippers.

 

Can I decline shipping insurance?

Limited Runs requires that all shipments over $100.00 be insured based on the price of each item. We currently do not offer you the option to decline insurance.

 

Risk of Loss

All items purchased from Limited Runs are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.

 

Packing

We pack our art with extra care to prevent against damages during shipping. All framed art is carefully packed by hand with secure material fitted around the corners and carefully wrapped and shipped in heavy-duty boxes to prevent damage while in transit.

 

Shipping Times

Shipping times for multiple items order will vary, as items may be shipped from different art dealers but generally will attempt to ship an item within 10 to 14 days from confirmation of sale unless indicated otherwise on the product detail page. International orders may require an additional 7 days.  We email a shipping confirmation once your package or packages are in transit. Packages require your signature.  You will be responsible for extra shipping costs if a package has been returned to Limited Runs because you are not available to sign for a package and we need to resend the order to you.  All framed items are framed to order and shipped separately.  Framed items require an addition 10 days (a total of 20-24 days) from confirmation of sale. Actual arrival timing for international shipments varies due to customs requirements within each receiving country. We will use reasonable efforts to ensure that you are kept informed of the estimated delivery date for the art you have purchased. Estimated delivery dates are provided for guidance purposes only and Limited Runs accepts no liability for any loss incurred due to delivery being outside of the estimated times.

 

How can I track my package?

We will send you an email notification when your package have shipped that include tracking information. You can also view the status of your order and obtain tracking information in the Orders section of My Account.

 

Incorrect Addresses & Non-Acceptance of Packages

Other shipping issues can be traced back to incorrect addresses or a buyer’s in ability to sign for a package or collect the package from the shipper.  Please make sure that your shipping address is up-to-date and/or that you are available to receive a package before placing your order.  You will be responsible for extra shipping costs if a package has been returned to Limited Runs marked “insufficient address” or your inability to receive a package and we need to resend the order due to an address input error or if the package is returned to Limited Runs.
