Terms-The Purple Plum Studio

ORDER TIMELINE

Our company handcrafts all products within 2 to 3 weeks.
Oftentimes, orders process faster than that, but we can’t guarantee a faster processing time.

MADE TO ORDER vs. PRE-MADE

Check a listing carefully to understand if a product is pre-made and ready to ship or if the product is ordered before it’s handmade.
Both are handmade but the pre-made is shipment ready while the made-to-order products take 2 to 3 weeks to be created for you.
Look for the following image if a product is ready for shipment immediately:

HANDMADE DISCLAIMER

The colors of the paintings might vary slightly in real life compared to the digital image.  This is  due to the nature of your product(s) being 100% handmade to order.

CARING FOR YOUR PAINTING:

* Watercolors are normally framed with a matte, glass for protection, and a frame to hold everything together.
*Make sure everything that touches the painting is acid free.  This will help the painting last over time.

YOUR PRODUCT CAN BE DAMAGED IF:

*Placed in direct sunlight (overtime the colors will fade).
*Not framed behind glass (glass helps protect the paper from natural elements and dust).
* Not framed with acid free materials
 
Please use our size chart to prevent errors in ordering.
