Delivery and Production times can extend during peak periods such as Christmas and Easter. If this occurs, we will endeavour to contact you and keep you informed.
How do I care for my Print.
Your image has been printed on high quality fine art paper. It is delicate and can be easily damaged through mishandling. We recommend that if you do handle the image, you do so by holding it carefully by the white border around the print so as to avoid fingerprints and natural oils from skin coming into contact with the print itself. All prints are carefully inspected by our print partner as part of their high standards in quality control and Russ Johnson Photography will not be responsible for damage that occurs after receipt of your print.
What happens if my print arrives in a damaged condition.
Sometimes accidents do happen and if your print arrives in damaged packaging only but the print itself is undamaged there is no reason or obligation upon Russ Johnson Photography to replace the image. If the packaging and print are both damaged you will need to contact us immediately and supply us with documented evidence of damage such as an original photo of the damage to the print and packaging. We will then work with you to arrange a replacement free of charge.
