Shipping from United States

Processing time is one to two days.

---Large original paintings are packed and shipped separately, so we cannot combine the shipping on those.
---History Posters can be shipped together. We are now using the new Etsy Calculated Shipping for the history posters. These posters ship in a sturdy Priority Mail tube mailer. Remember that, let's say you wanted several history posters, for gifts or for yourself, if you buy 7 that would be $35 and you would get free shipping on the posters.

History Posters and Unframed Art - In shipping multiple posters and/or Unframed art in the same shipment, we will refund excess shipping. Paintings will be shipped separately due to the packaging required to protect your paintings.

International buyers are responsible for any custom duties, taxes, levies and/or fees.
