Oversized and Overweight Items
These items will be shipped by UPS or Common Carrier Truck Shipping.  The cost will be determined by the carrier and calculated with the size of the package, weight of the package, and distance. The actual cost cannot be calculated or estimated until the order has been picked and packed.  Product descriptions should be marked as oversized and overweight.  Here are examples of overweight and  oversized items:

Are subject to shipping restrictions. Due to the required ground shipping of Class 3 items, shipping times may exceed our standard 2-6 day delivery estimate. Expedited shipping is not available for orders containing these items.  Examples of products include, solvents and  aerosol spray cans.

Shipments to California Customers, under Prop 65
Requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. These chemicals can be in the products that Californians purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. By requiring that this information be provided, Proposition 65 enables Californians to make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals. Some common art materials that contain these chemicals are solvents and solvent based products including paints, mediums and adhesives & heavy metal pigments.

All customers are notified if any variances from these policies are necessary due to the nature of their order.  In these cases the customer must approve any changes before the order is processed.
