Although we have successfully shipped our artwork to many countries outside the U.S., there are special requirements for doing so. Any shipment containing ‘wildlife’ (shells, insects, birds, etc.) must be inspected by US Fish and Wildlife prior to export. CITES Species are not available for export. The document filing, inspection, warehouse hold at the port of export, and additional time to do this adds a fee to each shipment (not to each piece). The only exceptions are shipments that contain only minerals and fossils. We are responsible for all of the necessary paperwork and documentation filing for export, however, the receiver must be responsible for all tax/duties/requirements for import. Each country has its own laws that pertain to the importation of goods, which are often specific to the type of product, and it is not feasible for our office to stay current with every country’s requirements.
Some specimens cannot be shipped internationally. Pieces containing non-export specimens are clearly marked “USA sale only”. International customers that purchase pieces that cannot be shipped outside the US must provide a US shipping address or their order may be canceled and they will be charged a restocking fee.
In addition, our Warranty and Return Policy does not extend outside the U.S. (due to these additional fees and procedures for import/export of “wildlife”).
Once the order is placed our office will contact you with a shipping quote for the address provided and export fees. Please contact our office at 503-990-8132 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
