Orders & Prices

2.1 Select the item you want, including the framing options, then click on checkout and enter your personal details onto the form. Your order will then be sent to Independent Currencies by email.

All delivery charges will be payable by the buyer, except for orders within the UK. Please allow up to 21 days for delivery.

3.3 Delivery to you will be deemed to have occurred once the packaged, stamped and addressed Artwork is placed with the Royal Mail, or such other carrier as we may use.

Title and Risk.

5.5 If you breach any of your obligations set out under condition 5.3 you agree that the payment of damages alone may not be a sufficient remedy to compensate Independent Currencies or the Artist for any such breach. We and/or the Artist may carry out all or any of the following actions:

5.5.1 Apply to the Court seeking an Order to prevent you from continuing to breach your obligations under these Terms and Conditions;

Rights of Third Parties.
