FAQ & Policies
Thank you for considering purchasing art from Beach Inspired Art by Karen Boyer.
All art depicted on the site is copyrighted material and should not be copied, printed or altered in any way. If you would for any reason like to use one of the images, I'm flattered, but please email me first- and wait for my response.
While I attempt to accurately photograph all art on the site, you should expect slight variations in the color once it is received. This is true of both original art and prints.
Original art is created on either 90lb or 140lb watercolor paper with charcoal and gouache. It is shipped unframed, unless the description specifically includes a frame. Most often, your original artwork will arrive in rolled in a large USPS mailing tube. Original artwork must be framed and put under either glass or plexiglass. My personal recommendation is an ecru mat with a 1" black satin wood frame and glare-free plexiglass. I strongly discourage not using a mat. (Your framer will agree!)
Prints may be sent in either USPS tube, envelope or box, depending on the size you have purchased. Paper prints are on archival matte paper, or the highest quality paper available for the size you have purchased to achieve the best outcome. Should you purchase a "limited edition print", it will be numbered in the bottom corner. When framing prints, follow the same guidelines as above. While the guidelines are a less strict, it will produce the best final product.
Canvas prints have been created with a deep, 1.5" gallery wrap. Framing is completely option. They actually look great unframed, which shows the interesting print along the edges.
Other items you may purchase, canvas blocks, clothing items, etc. will all be shipped USPS Priority Mail. If international shipping is required, I will contact you by email regarding any additional costs or packing requirements.
I do not accept returns. I am happy to work with you prior to purchase to answer any questions you may have to ensure you are happy with your product. I do insure shipments to cover any damages that may occur before the item arrives at your door.
If there is an item, size, etc that you do not see that you would like, please contact me by email. I'm happy to attempt to make reasonable accommodations.
