Terms & Conditions

These terms and conditions (“Terms”) apply to the purchase of all forms of photographic print regardless of payment amount.

All orders must be submitted via the Site in accordance with the instructions set out on each step and page of the checkout process.

You are responsible for ensuring the completeness and accuracy of your order details and we will not be liable for any failure by you to provide complete and accurate information in your order.

Orders may only be deemed to have been accepted by us upon your receipt of our order confirmation in writing (which may be by e-mail), along with relevant order reference number.

We reserve the right to:

Reject any order submitted by you for any reason. Note, in particular, that orders by customers in certain countries may be held for inspection and checks for fraudulent payment methods prior to acceptance by us.

Cancel any order before delivery of the relevant print in the event any payment of the full order value fails.

Without limitation to any provisions relating to Limitation of Liability, we will not be liable or otherwise responsible for any loss or damage caused to the you by cancellation of an order by us.


Delivery will be completed when we deliver the print(s) to the shipping address you gave us when ordering.

The print(s) will be your responsibility from the completion of delivery.

You are responsible for inspecting the external packaging of the prints, on receipt, and marking any noticeable damage on the delivery confirmation receipt as required by the courier.

Any items which are significantly damaged must be rejected by you. You must immediately inform us of any delivery rejection in order that we can contact the courier to resolve the situation.

Should any damage be discovered at the point of delivery, you must provide us with photographs of the specific areas of concern along with the entire package, with shipping label showing, to assist in our ability to raise a suitable claim with the courier.

Failure to inform us of any damage to the print(s) within 24 hours of the courier's delivery receipt will mean you have confirmed your acceptance of your order in good condition. Damage report communications should be sent to support@wardenshortbow.com.


We do not accept returns, except when we have determined in our sole discretion that you received the product in question in a damaged state. We will accept return of a damaged print and replace it within 30 days of initial delivery. We will cover shipping in event that we agree damage was sustained before or in transit.

Customs, Excise Duties & Import Taxes

All prints are produced and shipped from the U.S.

As a responsible international seller, we are legally bound to provide information to the relevant import and export authorities when shipping prints to countries outside of the U.S.

We will ensure, where appropriate, that the value stated for the purposes of import and export to the country of delivery is accurate and correct, reflecting the actual material replacement cost of the order.

The payment of any import customs charges, duties and taxes, whether local or international, are the responsibility of the customer.

Any deliveries which are returned due to non-payment of customs charges, duties or other taxes will be considered complete and non-refundable.

We are able to discuss any potential import duties prior to ordering, should any questions or concerns arise. Please contact us directly for further information at support@wardenshortbow.com.

Our obligations under this contract will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of the event outside of our control. Where the event outside of our control affects our delivery of your print(s) to you, we will arrange a new delivery date with you after the event outside of our control is over.

Price of Prints & Delivery

The prices of the prints will be as quoted on our site from time to time. We take all reasonable care to ensure that these prices are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However if we discover an error in the price of print(s) you ordered, please see below for what happens in this event.

Prices for our prints may change from time to time, including as described according to our pricing model, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with a dispatch confirmation.

It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the prints on our site may be incorrectly priced. If we discover an error in the price of a print you have ordered we will inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the print at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.

Under no circumstances will you have any rights of any kind in or to the Site, other than the right to use the Site in accordance with these Terms and the limited fair use described herein. Fair use of copyrighted material includes the use of protected materials for non-commercial educational purposes, such as teaching, scholarship, research, criticism, commentary, and news reporting. Unless otherwise noted, you may download or print text and image files from this Site solely for such purposes without our written permission, provided that you comply with the following conditions: (a) the content may only be used for personal, educational or noncommercial purposes; (b) you must cite the author and source of the content; (c) none of the content may be altered or modified; and (d) you must comply with all other terms or restrictions which may be applicable to the individual file, image or text.

We make no representations or warranties, and disclaim all representations and warranties, with respect to the Site, the Site Materials, the services, products, information and other materials on and in and made available through the Site, express or implied, written or oral, arising from course of dealing, course of performance, usage of trade, or otherwise, including the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, quality, and title.

13. Our Right to Vary These Terms

We may revise these Terms from time to time.

Every time you order prints from us, the Terms in force at that time will apply to the contract between you and us.

The Terms applicable to your contract will be determined as those published and active on the date your order was placed.

14. Jurisdiction and Disputes

These terms are governed by United States and California law.

We may transfer our rights and obligations under a contract to another organization, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms.

You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to another person if we agree in writing. However, if you have purchased a print as a gift, you may transfer the benefit of our replacement policy and procedures described at clauses 3 and 4 to the recipient of the gift without needing to ask our consent.

This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms. However, the recipient of your gift of a print will have the benefit of our replacement policy and procedures described at clauses 3 and 4, but we and you will not need their consent to cancel or make any changes to these Terms.

Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.

This contract for the purchase of prints through the Site and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by California law. You and we both agree that the state and federal courts of California will have exclusive jurisdiction.
