To place an order, please review the terms on this page, then contact me via telephone, email, or my contact form with any questions. Please be specific. When inquiring about prints, It is essential to indicate edition as well as the plate number and title (usually the bird or animal name). If you have questions relating to shipping or insurance costs, be sure to let me know your address and shipping preferences so I can respond quickly and accurately with the information you need. Although the website is mostly up-to-date, most items are unique and are therefore subject to prior sale.
We guarantee the authenticity of our goods and the accuracy of our descriptions. We are happy to provide you with a detailed condition report (including photographs if appropriate) for any item. We will prepare a Certificate of Authenticity for any print upon your request. Unfortunately, photos (or pictures in books) rarely convey the beauty of the things we sell. Most items will meet or exceed your expectations; if not, we are happy to accept returns provided you contact us within 7 days of the shipment's arrival. After we receive the item in original condition, your money will be promptly refunded (excluding any shipping and insurance costs). Returns items must be shipped to us by an agreed-upon method at your full risk and expense within 7 days of notification of your intent to return. We allow exceptions to the 7-day policy on a case-by-case basis, but only with prior agreement.
I collect sales tax of 5 percent for all items delivered to or sold in Virginia. Shipment of your order will be delayed if I do not receive payment for any sales tax that is due.
If your order is time-sensitive, alert me as soon as possible. Service delays occur due to holidays, high volume or bad weather. I do the best I can to ship your goods quickly, and to ensure you will receive them in a timely fashion, but I am not responsible for carrier delays. If you want guaranteed delivery, you must request and pay for a guaranteed service. In these cases, the carrier has sole responsibility for any delays. Express options include one-, two-, and three-day service from the time I give the package to the carrier. With some services, I can arrange for very early delivery and mid-morning or noon delivery. These are good options if you would like to narrow the window for delivery. If you do not specify this, I will assume you want the least expensive overnight service (delivery by the end of the following day).
Small packages are usually shipped using Priority or Media Mail or Ground (UPS or FedEx). Shipping with FedEx or UPS requires a street address. FedEx requires a telephone number. I value the items we sell highly and do not ship without appropriate insurance. I do not usually require a signature, but the carrier may require it. If you are often away from home, and are receiving a higher-value package, choose the service with care. I rely on you to ASK for the information you need when choosing a carrier and service that is best for your situation. Consider having packages delivered to non-residential locations if possible. I am not responsible for shipping delays or any inconvenience you experience because of signature requirements. If you want to guarantee that your package will be delivered without a signature, ask for information on the signature release option.
Please ask about the cost and availability of international shipping. You may or may not incur brokerage, duty, taxes, or other government-imposed fees on merchandise you purchase and import from abroad. Such charges are your responsibility.
Shipping costs below are for the continental US. Shipping to other locations is quoted on a case-by-case basis.
PRINTS: Insured shipping will usually be charged at $15 for small prints, $25 for medium-sized prints, and $60-150 for large prints. Prices are for flat shipping for unframed prints. Tube shipping for large prints begins at $20. There may be surcharges for higher value packages due to the need to use express services or for insurance. Costs may be higher for western states, for packages requiring a signature, for residential delivery, and other factors. Multiple prints can usually be shipped for the cost of the largest print. Costs for framed prints and international shipping (if available) are calculated on a case-by-case basis.
CHINA: Determined based on quantity and value.
BOOKS: Most books ship insured media mail, $8 for the first book, $2 for each additional book. These are guidelines only. I may charge more for large or heavy books, books over $100 (where insurance costs are higher), or books shipped using a different service.
Forms of Payment
I accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover or UnionPay for telephone orders. I do NOT accept credit card information via email or through the website contact form. I accept credit card information by telephone only and I process your payment using a standard "dial-up" terminal. As is required of any merchant handling sensitive credit and debit card data, I am certified annually as being compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). I do not retain or store your credit card information after I process your payment. Please do your part to safeguard your own information by NEVER sending sensitive information (including credit card information) to me or anyone else via email or other insecure methods of communication.
For those who prefer an online payment method, I accept payments through Paypal or Google Checkout, secure payment services that allow you to pay with a major credit card or by other means. If you wish to pay me with either of these services, I will send you an invoice for the amount and specific item. I will personally send you confirmation by email after your payment has been received.
I accept wire transfers, personal or business checks, bank checks, cashier's checks, or money orders made out to MINNIESLAND.COM, LLC. If you wish to buy something, I can hold the merchandise for you for up to seven days pending receipt of payment. I do not operate a gallery. The address of my mail box is
