Why are digital soft copies priced higher than hard copies?
I charge a higher fee for digital soft copies as clients get to keep the file and have it printed on other products, for as many times as they like. Do note that this is only for personal use - more information about this at Copyright and usage of artwork section below.
Hard copy orders will be printed using the following specifications:
Custom portraits - fade resistant ink (archival print) on matte, off-white, textured acid free paper stock (320gsm). Just as art museum print quality! A small white border will be added around for easier framing.
Wedding invites - matte, off-white textured paper (250gsm) or matte, brown paper stock (350gsm).
Payment can be made through bank transfers (ACH transfers for those living outside of Singapore).
Wire transfers and Paypal options are available. However, they charge a higher transaction fee and you will have to bear the additional cost.
Please refer to Redbubble’s FAQ for purchases from my Redbubble store.
Order processing and printing takes between 2 to 3 weeks, excluding shipping duration. Please let me know if you need your print to arrive by a certain date. A fee will be incurred for urgent orders.
Shipping cost is calculated based on weight. I will be able to advise the shipping fee once the order quantity/dimension is confirmed.
I will email you the tracking number once I ship your order. You may track your parcel here, https://www.singpost.com/track-items.
Dollgift is not responsible for parcels lost during transit.
Estimated shipping duration (excluding order processing time):
- Within Singapore: 3 to 5 working days
- International Shipping: 6 to 12 working days
Shipping duration varies from country to country and cannot be guaranteed due to possible unforeseen delays.
Self-collection (Singapore only)
Excluding orders from Redbubble, you may arrange with me to collect your order at Orchard or Choa Chu Kang MRT station.
You will not be charged sales tax (GST) in Singapore. International customers may have to pay custom duty and other relevant taxes according to the destination country's tax law.
Returns & exchanges
Customer satisfaction is very important to me. Unfortunately, I cannot offer returns or exchanges on custom illustrations due to the many hours that go into drawing them. Please remember to check your proof very carefully to ensure proper spelling. In rare cases, if a mistake is made on my part, I will make all necessary corrections and replace the product at no charge to client.
In the event of a cancellation at any point after an order has been confirmed, the 50% deposit will not be refunded. Regardless of whether final delivery has been made, a 100% cancellation fee is due in the event of a cancellation after the project has been completed. Thank you for your understanding!
While every effort will be made to ensure the accuracy of colours/textures in the product(s)/file(s), I cannot guarantee a 100% colour match between the client's monitor and that of the actual product(s)/file(s).
