How do I know your image description is accurate?
We strive to make our photo descriptions as accurate as possible. Descriptions are taken directly from the U.S. Library of Congress, National Archives, or other sources as noted. In many cases, these institutions hold the original negatives and state the ascribed notes directly from the original photographer. Therefore, we use these institutions as our standard of authority on description accuracy. We are not responsible for errors and we will not participate in disputes. Should you have a dispute, please contact the sighted source directly.
This listing provides buyers with the opportunity to review the image and agree with the item description before finalizing a purchase. As such, no refunds will be issued on the basis of an allegedly inaccurate description. We encourage you to feel comfortable with the stated description before ordering.
When can I expect my package?
Items are delivered via USPS First Class mail (2-5 business days) with no longer than one (1) day handling time. Your item should not be considered untimely unless it has not been received after one full week from your payment date (within the United States). Please consider weekends and holidays when anticipating your package arrival date as well.
Standard international delivery times vary depending on location. While First Class International usually delivers within 7-14 business days, it offers no guarantee on delivery times and may take up to a month (usually due to customs issues). Please take this into consideration if you are outside the United States and are placing a time-sensitive order. Tracking is not available on standard international shipments. Expedited international shipping is available and includes tracking service. International expedited shipping delivers in approximately 7 business days.
Is your transit packaging secure?
Great care will be taken to ensure that your item arrives in excellent condition. Prints are shipped flat on cardboard and sealed in a water-resistant envelope or, for posters and maps, rolled in a crush-resistant tube. We've successfully shipped thousands of prints in this manner, which demonstrates a reliability in our packaging methods. Items will arrive in good order when handled properly by postal carriers.
Please note that we pay extra charges to have parcels delivered as PACKAGES, not regular mail. This means your carrier should deliver your package to your doorstep (not bend or cram it into your mailbox). Should you find your package damaged due to this type of handling, please contact your local post office.

Yes!* And with no minumum order. Free shipping will be applied on all orders within the United States and their territories (including the U.S Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and Guam).
