With warm regards, your friends,
Shipment Outside the USA and Canada: We will be happy to ship Japanese
woodblock prints and other items to international countries, however,
shipments to some international countries are restricted. Please check
with our "Excludes" list found in "Shipping and payments>Shipping and
handling>Excludes" or inquire directly to us with your country name
and your postal code. Please keep in mind that exchange rates vary each
day and the actual shipping cost will be based on Canada Post
calculations after you have won your item.
Combined Shipping: We
are happy to combine items for shipping, however, all items must be
purchased on the same day. We will combine up to 9 woodblock prints*
in one package for you for the same price as 1. More than 9 in a
package will cause an increase in price, but we will be happy to do that
for you upon request.
*A Special Note with Regard to the shipping of Japanese woodblock prints: Canada
Post is, unfortunately, for us and for you, not at all as cheap as the
United States Postal Service. Cardboard stiffeners placed inside our
oversized shipping envelopes will add more weight to the package and
Canada Post will absolutely charge plenty for it. We can also send your
prints in tubes if you like, but again, Canada Post charges a lot more
for "round" packages.
have collected and sold antique Japanese woodblock prints for more than
30 years and have never had any problem with shipping our woodblock
prints in large, oversized envelopes without the cardboard inserts, but
if you want it, we can add it for you at Canada Post's additional cost,
but you must let us know in advance of your payment if you want this
additional packaging. Having said this, we do understand that some
prints can be very valuable now and priced in the many hundreds and even
thousands of dollars EACH, so under those circumstances, we certainly
can understand your concern and will be very happy to package your
prints any way you like.
Payments: We accept PayPal. Payments are due within 2 days for Auction-Style Listings. Payments are due immediately with a Buy It Now.
Shipment, Tracking and Signature: We
have a very good track record of ALWAYS shipping our items in a very
TIMELY MANNER ... within 3 business days... and many times our shipping
is done on the VERY NEXT next business day. Please keep in mind that our
woodblock prints are being shipped from CANADA and may take longer to
arrive to you in the States or Europe because of border crossing and
items are shipped with a Tracking Number and if the package is valued
at more than $250 a signature is required. If you would like a signature
required for something valued at a lesser value, please ask and we will
add the Canada Post service charge to your invoice.
shipping insurance is always included by the post office for a
shipment, the covered value of which ranges anywhere from $60 to $100
Canadian dollars, depending on the country of destination. Additional
insurance for higher amounts during shipping will cost an additional
amount as per the post office and is available upon your request. If the
value of your purchased item is valued more than $60-$100 Canadian
dollars, we strongly suggest that you purchase additional insurance for
your purchased item(s), especially for things like glass, porcelains and
anything else you might consider precious.
like to follow up with you after you have received your item to make
sure that everything has arrived okay and all in good order. If you have
any problems, please let us know right away and we will try to help. We
want to make sure you have a good experience and enjoy the items you
have purchased from us. Why? Because we LOVE our repeat visitors! ...and
also because we want to make sure that you are enjoying these lovely
items as much as we have over all these past number of years.

must now STAY in China. If you are in China and you have received an
antique item and then try to send the item back to the seller, then your
