what is your shipping policy?
domestic shipping is currently free. if a client requests expedited shipping, it will be charged as per USPS or as per client instructions.
shipping will be based on country and time client requests for delivery. sorry I cannot offer free shipping for international purchases.
depending on the number of orders in progress, the piece will ship in 1 - 3 days. if you have a special occasion, please ask if a certain date can be achieved and I will strive to make it happen.
how do I care for a Traversetto? (that's the singular of traversetti... ; )
wipe it gently with a cloth slightly dampened with water ONLY; do not use any "cleaners" as you could damage the surface. as with any handmade piece, be gentle. the drawing is coated with a UV matte sealer. the vintage chip that the drawing is on can break if dropped. i've only had it happen with loose (unset) pieces. the wood is stained with a water based wood stain.
I strive to have happy customers.
if there is anything you find amiss with the piece on its arrival, contact me within 48 hours to discuss. Email photos for reference.
as a self employed artist making each piece by hand, i ask that you ONLY purchase a piece if you really love it. these are labors of love. the drawings are not perfect: they are art. the evidence that the pieces are handmade is part of their essence. that being said, if you are unhappy, I will consider a full refund based on our conversation.
do you take commissions?
yes, price is determined based on subject and complexity. Payment in full is due before beginning. I will need a photograph/photographs to base the price on and to work from. I will send progress sketches as I work. Timing on commissions depends on current pieces in progress. 10 days to 3 weeks should be adequate. If you need the piece for a special occasion, let me know and I'll see if I can accommodate you.
can i commission you to design my tattoo/s?
yes, with a 100% deposit of estimated fee. if there is a balance due, it will be required on receipt of a photograph of the finished piece and before delivery. pricing will be determined based on size and detail of desired piece. i'm not able to tattoo anyone (yet!)...
