COVID-19 info for November 2021: We're still open online! We continue to make occasional adjustments to order fulfillment to accommodate local health regulations and supply chain issues. We now accept PayPal, major credit cards and Venmo (via PayPal) for all online and telephone orders, but we had to permanently discontinue in-store pickups, replacing them with free expedited domestic shipping on art prints. Orders are fulfilled on schedule by us or directly through our manufacturing partners, but some minor delays may occur throughout the holiday season.
