Credit Card Policy: When purchasing online using credit cards, the transaction will be processed through PayPal, the easiest and most secure method of online shopping. When using PayPal, no financial information of the buyer is available to the merchant. Please note that you do not need a PayPal account to purchase using a credit card, nor is the buyer charged any PayPal fees! Credit cards accepted are Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. When choosing credit card as method of payment during your check out, you will be linked to the PayPal site. 

Note:  All prices are subject to change and items are subject to prior sale. We make every effort to keep our prices and selection current, however, we reserve the right to change our posted prices on the site at any time and items may have been sold prior to the site being updated. All descriptions and prices are entered manually, therefore we reserve the right to correct any typographical errors at any time. Like you, we are human and the occasional mistake occurs.                    

Return Policy:  All items are guaranteed to be as described. If you are dissatisfied with your purchase, it may be returned for the original purchase price, less shipping costs and PayPal fees, within seven working days. The refund shall be issued once the item is returned in the same condition that it was sent. The purchaser is responsible for packaging and return shipping costs, including the appropriate insurance. We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee on returns.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT RETURNS AND REFUNDS: PayPal, in their exceedingly greedy corporate wisdom, has decided that they will no longer refund the fees paid by the merchant when a customer makes a return. Thus, sadly, we will henceforth be deducting any fees we have paid to PayPal from any returns/refunds to the customer. We apologize for this insane policy on PayPal's part.


Due to an overwhelming number of such requests, we are sadly forced to state the following:

We do not perform appraisals nor do we purchase prints from unsolicited sources. Please do not contact us if you are looking for a value or information for your prints or maps, nor if you wish to sell yours. The staggering number of requests we receive each day has consumed much of our time and we can no longer respond to such requests. We beg your understanding the limits of our time and resources.

Thank you.

A note about shipping:

Due to the difficulty in automated calculation of shipping rates for items that are so varied in size, value and destination, we may occasionally need to send you an invoice for any additional shipping charges. Conversely, if you have been charged substantially more, we will issue a refund. We use the United States Postal Service (USPS) for our shipping, both domestic and international.

We ship within 3-5 business days. Most prints are shipped flat, between multiple layers of double-strength cardboard. Large prints may need to be sent rolled in a strong tube for adequate protection.

International purchases (Outside of the U.S.):

The 'International Economy' shipping option is less expensive but please be advised that the this method also takes considerably longer for delivery, In many cases up to 6 weeks. It may not be available for higher dollar amounts that require increased insurance coverage. You may contact us prior to purchase if you are in doubt. Not all countries are available during checkout. If your country is not listed, please contact us or we will send you an invoice for shipping after you have checked out. Please look for an email from us if your country is not available during checkout. We reserve the right to refuse delivery to certain countries due to unsafe mailing conditions.

Our normal method of shipping outside of the U.S. is via the United States Postal Service's Priority International Mail if the buyer has purchased this service rather than the default international economy option. Please note that each individual country defines the limits of insurance coverage for packages sent through the United States Postal Service (USPS). Thus, certain large purchases to certain countries may not have full coverage in case of loss or damage. Such shipments are at the buyer's risk.

V.A.T. and other charges: Darvill's Rare Prints is not responsible for any customs taxes or additional charges imposed by foreign governments or mail services. Europeans may expect to have to pay customs duties or V.A.T. on shipments over certain amounts. We have recently learned that the Royal Mail in the U.K. has started charging an "International Handling" fee. Please check with your local postal service for details pertinent to your country. In no cases are we expected to know and/or charge for the multiple scenarios of taxes or fees throughout the world. Familiarize yourself with your country's fees and regulations. Thank you.
