Displays are subjective: If you have preferences OR reservations I would like to know ahead of time. Neither of us likes disappointments.

Background colors, pointing up or down, landscape or portrait, are all subjective choices I will vary unless we discuss beforehand. I have a field for this on the Publication form. See below.

  • Shipping assumes single-address/single-package return.

  • Drop-shipping to YOUR client in US is fine. (Small extra $5 fee for separate flat print mailer.)

  • When possible, ship in box large enough to return a full-size photo

  • DO NOT WRAP COVERED KNIVES WITH SHIPPING TAPE - Use masking tape, or rubber bands please. I cannot reuse if it destroys your wrapping.

  • (Shipping tape often requires cutting to open, and is a liability)
* We maintain 50% humidity in our studio. We are NOT responsible for handle swelling or shrinking in shipment, upon arrival, or due to a different climate than origination.

* Payment is expected no later than delivery of the prints and knives *
  • I'm pleased to bill you after your delivery to discuss the possibilities

  • Do not send payments, unless we have finalized pricing
