NO RETURNS OR EXCHANGES: Each item is printed & sewn with the upmost care & precision, & inspected for quality throughout fabrication. Line items are edition based monoprints, meaning multiple objects are made from one-of-a-kind yardage in a specific colorway, when you order an item it might be a slight pattern variation from that particular colorway differing slightly in pattern from the picture. Generally no returns, only on a case-by-case basis.
SHIPPING: Orders are shipped once a week, every Monday morning. So, if your order is placed Monday night, it won’t be shipped until the following Monday. I am a one-woman-operation, and in order to support the intensive time demands of printing & fabricating, I’m streamlining packaging & shipping to one day per week. And of course if able will ship sooner if possible. If there is shipping urgency please leave me a note in your order, & I will do my best to meet your timing needs. Thanks for understanding :)
CUSTOM & WHOLESALE LEAD TIME: 5-6 week lead time to fabricate & ship custom work & wholesale orders.
CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Disclaimer: Marbling is a surface print, and although stable, STURDY!, fixed and washer safe, the print will fade slightly overtime with use. You can prolong the life of the print by coating with Scotchgard before use, and washing with cold water and minimal soap (less than 1/4cup), and re-coating with Scotchguard after each wash. (make sure to zip shut pillow cases when washing in machine, to keep the zipper in good condition).
SOCIAL MEDIA: as a small studio and one-woman-shop any photo sharing and tagging @christinripleystudio and #christinripley are greatly appreciated for survival :)
