Shipping & Handling

All of our orders are shipped within 1-5 business days. More than half of our orders are shipped within 3 business days or less. Then you should add shipping times on top of that.

How long do I have to submit a claim for a return/exchange?

Any claims for misprinted/damaged/defective items must be submitted within 4 weeks after the product is received. For packages lost in transit, all claims must be submitted no more than 4 weeks after the estimated delivery date.

What if the order is lost in the mail?

For packages lost in transit, all claims must be submitted no later than 4 weeks after the estimated delivery date. But no worries! We’ll cover the costs of reprinting and shipping a replacement order for you.

We may ask for your help before doing that, like confirming that the shipping address was correct. It would also be good to double check that you got in touch with your local post office to try locating the lost order.

Keep in mind that if tracking information states an order was delivered but you think you haven’t received it, we won’t take responsibility and reship that order.

My order shows it is being returned to sender, what now?

There are a few reasons an order can be returned to sender but most often it is due to an undeliverable address. Other instances include the package being unclaimed at customs or refused/returned by customer. We would advise our customer to determine how they would like to proceed and contact us with an updated address if you wish to have the product reshipped. New shipping charges will be applied for orders that have been unclaimed at customs, returned by your customer, or had an incorrect address originally provided.

What if I entered the wrong address?

If you entered the wrong address, then you are held responsible. Usually, the package is sent back to us. If we receive the package we’ll contact you for an updated address. If the package is not returned to us, we are not responsible for the loss.

What happens if a package isn’t delivered, but the tracking states that it did?

We will cover a variety of courier errors such as lost or damaged in transit, postage due errors or generally misrouted packages when tracking provides no clear details or cause.

In the rare cases that a package is marked as delivered by the courier, but the recipient reports they have yet to receive it, we would not cover the cost of reshipping the order. Again, this only applies if the tracking details state that a delivery was made to the recipient’s address. 

In most instances, it is found that the delivery was made, but the package was left in an unexpected location at your address. You should reach out to the courier and inquire if any additional details were left by the delivery person – e.g. “left under table on back porch.”

If you are unable to locate the package, you will need to place a new order.

What if the product is damaged in the mail?

If something arrives damaged, send a photo of the damaged goods to patentartposters@gmx.com, then we’ll gladly send a replacement at no cost to you.

How are returns handled differently when comparing quality concerns or customers changing their minds?

Any returns or problems that occur because of an error on our part will be handled at our expense.

If you would like to exchange or return a product without any defect or due to a wrong size being ordered would be handled at your expense by placing a new order.

If the item is returned to our facility, someone from our team will contact you regarding the return. We will ship the return back to you; however, you will be responsible for the shipping cost a second time. Unclaimed returns get donated to charity after 3 weeks.
