Orders may be placed by first selecting your artwork, including the frame color and background color options, (if applicable) then clicking our PayPal enabled "add to cart" button on each of our description detail pages. You would then fill in and submit your order to us. Once we have received your completed order, an email will be sent to you to confirm your purchase. If, for some reason, you do not receive our email confirmation of your order, it is truly necessary for you to contact us in regards to this.
Most of our artwork will take approximately one to three weeks to complete prior to shipping. While we will try our very best to complete your order at a timely fashion, artworks involving rarer items may require a longer lead time. Please contact us before placing your order if it is imperative that it be sent to you within a particular time frame. Rush orders may be available for an additional fee.
One should expect some natural variation within all insect species. Indeed, because our insects are obtained from nature, no two specimens will be precisely identical and photos of insects on our website will not precisely match framed insects you may receive. This is true even when ordering multiple items of the same species at the same time. Our artwork (as well as virtually any other) will often appear differently in different photos due to factors such as varied lighting conditions.
To reduce the chance of color fading, please avoid hanging artwork near direct sunlight. Placing your frames in direct sunlight is not recommended since it is antithetical to the long-term preservation of any artwork. If kept at low light, butterfly and insect taxidermy has been proven to fade at half of the rate compared to being in bright conditions. Low humidity is also important, a cool and dry environment will help the preservation of the art piece.
If necessary, gently wipe surfaces with rubbing alcohol with either suede chamois or microfiber cloth. To avoid fingerprints on frame and plexiglass, it is recommended that gloves be used whenever frame is handled.
Custom orders and privately commissioned pieces are welcome. Please send us an email, let us hear your ideas and we will try our best to collaborate and accommodate your special request.
