- I want to order several artworks - can I combine postage?
We are very sorry but it is generally not possible to combine postage. The reason is that each artist stores his/her artwork in their own studios, which are at different locations. The artworks ship directly from the artist’s studios. One exception is if you are to purchase several artwork by the same artist. In that case please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or +420 608 46 22 11 and we will send you the price of the combined postage.

If you are paying by PayPal (credit/debit card), the amount is deducted immediately. When paying by a bank transfer, the amount is deducted by your bank, usually the same day. Please remember that you are responsible for making the payment within 48 hours of your purchase, if using the bank transfer.
- What are a Card Security Code (CSC) and an issue number?
The CSC (or CVV2 number) on you credit or debit card is a security measure banks require for all transactions where the cardholder is not present. The number is not stored anywhere and only appears on the card itself. It is usually a three-digit code on the back of your card, after the card number in the signature strip.
An issue number is only required if you are using a Switch card. If your Switch card has no issue number please leave this field blank.

6/ Framing and Artwork Care
- Will my painting arrive framed?
We offer a wide variety of paintings and it depends on the media if they need framing or not. You can find information about framing, below. Some artworks have already been framed by the artist, which is specified in the item’s description.
Artwork on canvas (e. g. oil on canvas, acrylic on canvas, dry pastel on canvas, mixed media on canvas, etc.) do not require framing. The artwork will arrive stretched on a wooden frame, ready for you to hang it on the wall.
Artwork on paper (e. g. watercolour on paper, pencil on paper, print on paper such as silkscreen, litography, linocut, mezzotint, etc.) do require framing. The artwork will arrive in a postal tube for you to send it to an online framing shop or to have it framed at your local Art Shop. Some artworks in our gallery have already been framed by the artist, and therefore will arrive framed. This would be written in the item's description.
Photographs do require framing unless they are mounted on a wooden board, or have been framed by the artist, which is specified in the item’s description. Unframed photographs will arrive in a postal tube for you to send them to an online framing service or to take to your local Art Shop.
- How shall I care about my artwork?
Oil / acrylic paintings are very durable and they do not require any special care. You can dust them with a feather duster or a dust cloth, whenever needed.
Watercolours, drawings, and prints look best when framed under glass. Then it is also simple to maintain them: you can dust the frame with a dust cloth or a feather duster, whenever needed.
Photographs will generally need to be framed apart from those mounted on wooden board. You can dust them with a feather duster or a dust cloth whenever needed. If you choose a photograph mounted on a wooden board, which is not under glass, you can dust it with a feather duster, too. Our artists use high quality, long lasting, fade resistant photographic papers.
Sculptures do not need any special care unless stated in the description. You can dust them with a dust cloth or a feather duster. Outdoor sculptures can be cleaned with a wet cloth.
