Shipping Info

Understanding Our Shipping Information

At The Stackhouse, we aim to make the delivery process as transparent and straightforward as possible. We provide four shipping options for you to choose from, each tailored to meet different needs and budgets. These options include Standard, Expedited, 2nd Day Air, and Standard International shipping.

Please note that the shipping fee is calculated based on your total order amount. It’s important to remember that the shipping times we provide do not include the time required for production.

We strive to ensure accurate production and shipping estimates; however, they aren’t guaranteed due to various factors. For instance, orders containing more than 20 items or multiple product types may require additional production time.

Moreover, when ordering ultra-large canvas boards or gallery-wrapped canvas, an extra crating fee will be billed after purchase due to their ultra-large size.

Thank you for understanding, and please get in touch with us if you have any queries about our shipping policies.

International Shipping

Standard International Shipping
$19.99 + 20% Order Total

We currently ship to 34 different countries.

Shipping is calculated using a fixed rate plus an additional 20% of the order subtotal. Orders that contain items 24 inches or more in width or height AND that cannot be shipped in a tube may be more. Paper prints over 15″ in length will be rolled and shipped in a tube. The recipient is responsible for any additional duty fees and taxes imposed by the destination country.

Tracking for USPS shipments may only be available until the package arrives at its final US stop (typically Chicago for USPS shipments) before transferring it to an overseas flight. UPS shipments generally have ongoing tracking even after the package leaves the US.

International transit usually averages 2 – 4 weeks but can take longer in some instances if delayed in customs or the country has incoming bottlenecks due to COVID. The destination country may require the recipient to pay customs fees or VAT (Value Added Tax), which is determined by that country.

The Stackhouse will contact you for approval and payment of any additional charges (excluding customs fees or VAT) or if there are any issues with shipping large prints outside the U.S.

International Shipping Policies and Procedures

At The Stackhouse, we’re proud to offer our services to 34 unique nations around the globe. To ensure a transparent process, our international shipping fees are calculated using a fixed rate plus an additional 20% of the order subtotal. Please note that orders with items exceeding 24 inches in width or height, which cannot be shipped in a tube, may incur additional costs.

For the sake of protection and shipping feasibility, paper prints over 15″ in length will be shipped rolled within a sturdy tube. It’s important to note that any additional duty fees, taxes, or VAT (Value Added Tax) required by the destination country are the responsibility of the recipient.

We aim to keep our customers informed every step of the way. For USPS shipments, tracking may be available until the package reaches its final U.S. stop before heading overseas, typically Chicago. UPS shipments usually provide ongoing tracking, keeping you updated even after the package leaves the U.S.

Transit times for international orders usually average between 2 to 4 weeks. However, delays can occur due to customs hold-ups or current global situations like the COVID-19 pandemic, which may cause bottlenecks in certain countries. Despite these potential delays, we strive to ensure your art pieces reach you in perfect condition and as promptly as possible.

The Stackhouse will contact you for approval and payment of any additional charges (excluding customs fees or VAT) or if there are any issues with shipping large prints outside the U.S.

We are committed to maintaining the accuracy of our estimated delivery time frames, although they are not guaranteed due to potential unforeseen circumstances.

Please note if your order hasn’t been delivered within 15 days after the ship date for domestic orders or within 30 days after the ship date for international orders, we are happy to facilitate a reprint for you. Trust in our commitment to ensure you receive your art in a timely manner.

Shipping Damage

At The Stackhouse, we uphold stringent shipping protocols, strictly adhering to USPS and UPS guidelines, and fully insuring all our packages. Despite these precautions, we understand that unforeseen incidents may occur.

Steps to Take in the Event of Damaged Goods:

If your order arrives damaged, please take the following steps:

  1. Contact us: Notify us of the damage within 72 hours of receiving your order. We will replace your order at no additional cost.
  2. Document the damage: Take photos of all the damaged areas, including the packaging and the product. This visual evidence is crucial for processing the insurance claim.
  3. Retain the damaged goods and packaging: Please keep all damaged products and packaging for at least 10 business days following your claim. This material may be required for further inspection during the insurance claim process.

Your satisfaction is our top priority. By following these steps, we can swiftly address and resolve any shipping mishaps to ensure you receive the quality prints you ordered.

Crating Fee for Large-Scale Prints

At The Stackhouse, we take great care in ensuring that your large-scale foam board prints and gallery-wrapped canvas pieces are handled and shipped with the utmost protection. To that end, we employ a special crating process for certain sizes of prints.

This service incurs a crating fee of $100.00, a worthwhile investment for the safe transit of your art. Importantly, each crate can accommodate two to three prints depending on size,  providing value for multiple print orders.

The Stackhouse will reach out to you directly in situations where this crating fee applies. The standard sizes that necessitate this additional crating process are as follows:

  • 20×60
  • 30×60
  • 34×51
  • 36×48
  • 36×54
  • 36×60
  • 36×52
  • 38×57
  • 40×50
  • 40×60

We greatly appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter, as our primary goal is to deliver your prints in the excellent condition they deserve.
