Purchasing Information

Shipping, handling, & insurance included...
All original paintings and Limited Editions are fully insured during shipping at the purchase value. Prices are listed in US Dollars. Overseas and other foreign shipments are subject to additional shipping & handling fees depending on destination, size dimension and weight of the framed or unframed painting or print. All destinations within the state of Illinois (USA) are subject to Illinois sales tax (6.25%).

Original art purchases...
Because the image quality on the internet does little to truly represent the color, texture and overall quality of an original work of art, NauvooArtist.com allows the buyer of an original artwork seven (7) days upon receipt to view the artwork and return it for a full refund (less the cost of insurred shipping and handling) in the event the buyer is not satisfied with the original artwork. The seven (7) days shall begin on the day the work is delivered to the buyer and shall end at midnight on the seventh day thereafter. The buyer is responsible to pay all return shipping. The date of return shall be determined by the post office date (or other carrier date) marked on the return parcel. It is in the buyer's best interest that he/she insure the artwork for the full value when returning it. If the artwork is damaged during return shipping, NauvooArtist.com shall hold the buyer liable for the damages. The buyer upon making the initial purchase agrees to this term of liability. If a buyer does not return the original artwork within seven (7) days, NauvooArtist.com will consider the work sold and shall not be under any obligation to refund any payment or to buy-back the artwork.

For Commissioned art work...

Additional terms and information...
All listed prices are subject to change except when locked down by a deposit, reservation, or payment in full from a single buyer. If two or more Mail Orders are received for the same artwork, the buyer with the earliest post office mark will be received. The other buyer(s) will be notified by E-mail or telephone (whichever method of contact preferred) and he/she will have the option to apply part or all of their purchase amount toward other artwork, goods and services available in the Nauvoo Artist, or receive a full refund. In the event that two or more Mail Orders are received for the same artwork with the same post office date, the artwork will then be sold to the highest bidder. Only the buyers whose orders were post marked on the same earliest date will be allowed to participate in the bidding.
