ORDERING INSTRUCTIONS


You may pay for drawings, prints or coloring books via PayPal, debit card or credit card. Be sure to confirm the shipping address.

You may also pay via a check or money order. This should be denominated in USA dollars and made payable to Daniel Mitsui. E-mail me for the mailing address.

I will pay the sales tax for residents of Indiana out of the listed totals. Use taxes levied by states other than Indiana; and import taxes, customs duties, brokerage fees and value added taxes levied by nations other than the USA are the responsibility of the customer to pay. All sales are final.




NEW COMMISSIONS


If you want to commission new artwork, e-mail me at danielmitsuiartist at gmail dot com. Try to contact me at least six months in advance of when you need the drawing completed. I am unable to accept every project that is proposed to me, so please do not be offended if I decline the commission.

You may read my full list of policies on new commissions here.




NOTES on SHIPPING


I ship original artwork within the USA via Registered First-Class Mail, or Express Mail. I ship it internationally via whichever service of the US Post Office is most appropriate to the specific artwork and its destination. As it is impossible to insure shipments of original artwork for full value through the US Post Office, I am not liable for loss or damage in transit. I do, however, make every effort to pack the artwork carefully.

Giclée prints are shipped directly from the pressmen. Please notify me promptly if there is any flaw in the printing or damage from shipping, so that I may order a replacement.

Allow about 2 weeks for delivery for orders of prints shipped within the USA. Orders of original artwork and orders shipped internationally may take longer to arrive.




NOTES on E-MAIL NEWSLETTER


I subscribe to my e-mail newsletter anyone who places an order through my website or contacts me about a commission. If you do not want to receive this, please just make a note of it on the purchase form or in our correspondence.

The newsletter is sent about four times per year.




NOTES on MATERIALS: ORIGINAL DRAWINGS


Any patron may request a full list of the specific materials used in the creation of an original drawing. To the best of my knowledge, the materials used in the creation of my original drawings are permanent, lightfast and acid-free.

My usual materials include Bristol board, handmade cotton paper, calfskin vellum, goatskin parchment, deerskin parchment, washi made from kozo or gampi, papyrus, pigment-based calligraphy ink, sumi ink, technical pens, pencils, 23k gold leaf, palladium leaf, acrylic gesso, Instacoll gilding size and gum ammoniac.




NOTES on MATERIALS: GICLÉE PRINTS


Giclée prints are made on a spray-jet printer from a high-resolution digital scan or photograph. They are printed with Epson Ultrachrome pigmented inks that have been rated for lightfastness to approximately 80 years under good conditions. The color giclée prints are printed on Moab Entrada Rag Natural, a heavy, archival, 100& cotton paper. The altar cards and the black & white composed prints are printed on LexJet Archival Matte, a thinner archival paper.

Please note that some original drawings were made on goatskin parchment or calfskin vellum, which are not perfectly white, flat or homogenous. Natural variations in the color and thickness of the goatskin or calfskin show up in the color giclée prints, especially in the outer borders. These are not smudges or printing errors, but part of the artwork itself.




NOTES on SIGNATURES & EDITIONS


I only issue giclée prints in open editions. They are not signed or numbered.



NOTES on INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY


I retain the copyright to all of my works of art, including those created on commission, unless otherwise negotiated.
