Terms and Conditions

Why Should I Buy Art Made By James Godman?
We are very happy you are here, and we know you will be thrilled with each item you purchase (terms are below). James Godman’s limited edition prints are museum-quality, printed with archival pigment inks on 100% rag paper (unless otherwise noted), signed and numbered by James Godman. With a few exceptions like postcards that are mailed as postcards, all unique work is labeled, dated, and signed by James. With the same exceptions, all work also includes a signed certificate of authenticity that lists artwork details.

We do not ship to PO Boxes. We ship to all other United States addresses and to select international addresses. Please allow 3 – 5 business days for us to process, pack and ship your unframed artwork or apparel, and 21 days for framed prints and sculptures. For orders shipped in a crate, you must be able to accept the delivery at street level. Couriers will not carry the crate up stairs or beyond the building entryway. We are not responsible for any lost or stolen shipments. We are not responsible for damage caused by customers. Therefore, to avoid undue handling and possible damage, we highly recommend taking unmounted prints to a professional framing service before opening your delivery. Customers are responsible for paying additional shipping and handling fees to have any order re-shipped. All domestic shipments of artwork are insured and the buyer assumes all responsibilities of claims made with the shipping carrier. In certain cases, we may delay your shipment until your payment has cleared.

Shipment Tracking
All customers receive a shipping confirmation email when their order ships, which includes the tracking number and carrier info.

We offer a 14-day, money-back guarantee if you are not happy with your purchase, or it arrives damaged in any way. RETURNS MUST BE MADE IN ORIGINAL PACKAGING. Please read all terms before making a return.

Image Size vs. Paper Size of Artwork
The sizes listed indicate the size of the image in inches, not the size of the paper. Most of our editions are printed with a minimum margin of half an inch, therefore the paper will be larger than the stated image size. Margins protect the image from damage and allow for proper framing and mounting. There are some exceptions to the margin rule. For example, James’ hand mounted, trimmed, and resin finished prints have no margin and are ready to hang. Painted postcards may not have a margin. Etc.

Restricted Quantities Per Customer
Regarding limited editions, we restrict the quantity of each edition that a customer, household, or organization can buy. Apparel and other products that are not limited editions are unrestricted.

Title, Copyright, and Trademark Terms
Title (ownership) only passes to the purchaser once the artwork has been delivered. We reserve the right to cancel an order at any time, up to the point of delivery. Copyrights to all art, imagery, text, and designs remain the property of James Godman and his heirs, successors and assigns.

All content of our website including text, graphics, logos, buttons icons, images, and software, is property of James Godman and is protected by United States and international copyright/trademark laws.

You may purchase products from this website only for personal use and not for resale. By placing your order, you certify that you are purchasing products for personal use only and not for resale, and you agree to all terms contained herein. We reserve the right to refuse orders for any reason without explanation.

Prices are subject to change. Regarding limited editions, prices will rise as the edition begins to sell out, as is traditional. While we endeavor to show accurate availability of stock, levels are subject to change and in the unusual event of any order being placed for an out of stock item, a full refund will be given. At those times when we are experiencing high demand, prices are subject to rapid change. As such the price for an edition already in your basket may change during the shopping and checkout process. The actual price payable is the price at which your order is accepted and confirmed.

Occasionally, an error may occur and items may be either incorrectly priced or described, in which case we will not be obliged to supply the items at the incorrect price or in accordance with the incorrect description, or at all. We reserve the right to correct any errors from time to time. At our discretion, we will either cancel your order and refund the price you have paid or reasonably endeavor to contact you and ask you whether you wish to continue with the order at the correct price or correct description. If we are unable to contact you or you do not wish to continue with the order at the correct price or correct description, we will cancel your order and refund the price you paid.

With respect to limited editions, we reserve the right, at a future date, to issue further edition sizes not currently available of any given image. However, the dimensions (physical size) of the new edition will be significantly different than any of the editions that have already been published.

Sales Tax
Sales Tax is charged to those orders shipped within the state of New York and is based on the destination county. All individual apparel items under $110, including hats, are tax exempt. For individual apparel and hats over $110, the applicable tax rate is based on the destination county in New York. Bags and accessories are not considered apparel and are taxed. Shipping is also taxed. Sales tax is not charged to orders shipped to states outside of New York.

Coupon Codes
Coupon codes and other offers come with quantity and date restrictions and are bound by all terms contained herein. Please note they do not guarantee availability to any particular art, editions, or products as everything is sold on a first come first served basis.

Special Launch Price
Members (and those that have joined our email list) get access to new editions first and have the opportunity to purchase them at Special Launch Prices. Please note only a limited number of each edition are offered at the Special Launch Price. Once these have been sold the Special Launch Price is no longer available and any related coupon codes are no longer valid. While this gives members the opportunity of advance notice of a new release, it does not guarantee the availability of any particular artwork. Once an edition or unique piece of art is made available, they are sold on a strictly first come first served basis.

Gift Cards
Gift Cards cannot be redeemed for cash and may only be redeemed in US dollars ($). The amount of your purchase will be deducted from the balance on the gift card.
