Placing an Order

How do I place an order?

Placing an order is simple! Just follow the instructions on our Ordering Online page.

When is my credit card charged?

Your credit card is charged at the time your order is placed. All of the artists who sell through Artful Home are working from independent studios and in most cases are making items specifically to fill your order.

Can I place an order from an international address?

We're sorry, but we cannot currently ship to locations outside the United States and Canada.

Payment Information

Why are orders shipping to Wisconsin addresses taxed?

The Guild, the company that presents Artful Home, is based in Madison, Wisconsin. According to state and federal tax rules, we are required to charge sales tax on any item shipped to a Wisconsin address.

Shipping Information

When will my artwork ship?

On each art item page, you will see "Ships Within:" which indicates the timeframe in which the artist will ship your artwork. These times will vary depending on artist availability and the time needed to produce the item you've selected.

After placing your order, you will receive an email telling you when to expect your artwork. Once the artist ships your order, you will receive another email that includes the shipper's tracking information.
