Preparing your order

When preparing your order, please take care to specify the size print you want, the artist’s name and title of the work, and the quantity of each image being ordered.

Placing your order

To place an order, please call 203-979-2592 or email mlawlor@artofmuseums.com. When placing your order, please advise your complete billing and shipping addresses.  We will also need your telephone number, email address and for first time trade orders, we will require you email us your W9 form, so we have your federal tax identification number on file, as required by law.

Turnaround time

Orders for previously printed images typically ship within 5 – 7 business days of our receipt of your order.  Orders for new publications have a lead time of not less than 45 days (and maybe longer), allowing us time to request reproduction permission, format the image, color correct the image file, and obtain design and color approvals.

Shipping mode

Shipments are made via UPS Ground, unless instructed otherwise.  F.O.B. Montreal, Quebec.

Pricing

Prices listed on our website are the manufacturer’s suggested retail price.  Discounts are applicable to trade orders.

Packaging of Wholesale Orders

We package our prints with museum store display in mind.  All giclees are housed in a clear resealable cellophane envelope with our 50 point white backing board.  While many of our competitors use thick foamcore to back their giclees, our backing option provides sturdy support to the packaged prints without taking up excessive room in your inventory display.  That means you can feature more inventory on the sales floor, where it will move, rather than taking up space sitting in your stock room!

An option is to order the prints matted.  The packaged and backed print ships in a cellophane envelope with the mat placed in front of the image. Our bright white 2 ply mat has a smooth finish, is acid free, and has a white bevel.  Matting your prints make a handsome and luxurious presentation.  Mats are custom cut to surround the image without border and the outside trim sizes of the mats are the same standard trim sizes as our overall paper sizes, making the matted prints ready to frame!

Finally, the backs of all clear resealable envelopes are labeled with the same copyright line (credit line) which appears at the bottom of each print.

ArtBlocks

Our ArtBlocks are a fresh alternative framing technique, ideal for finishing modern, contemporary or photographic images.  The border of the giclee is cropped and the image is mounted to Masonite.  The mounted print is then framed in a 2 inch deep hand-stained wood frame.  The frame moulding is sourced from renewable sustainable North American forests.  ArtBlocks are available in a variety of finished sizes.  Finished size is determined by the size and format of the original artwork, prior to reproduction.  

All ArtBlocks ship with an easy to use hanging device.  Hang your ArtBlocks on the wall, or display them on a shelf, countertop or mantel!  There are minimum order requirements, so please inquire.

Notecards and Postcards

Most of our published giclee images are also available to the trade as postcards and notecards.  Postcards are sold loose, while scored and folded notecards are available either loose, or packaged with a plain white mailing envelope in a clear resealable sleeve.  Postcards are designed with the border-surrounded image on recto and a standard postcard design (with copyright information and address space) on verso.   Notecard images are also surrounded by border, and copyright information appears on the back of the blank notecard.  

We take great care to assure the same quality found in our giclee prints is found on our notecards and postcards.  We print our notecards and postcards using the same color approved image files and the same inks as used on our prints.  Notecards and postcards are printed on quality-rich 300 gsm weight bright white paper.  Minimums apply.
