SHIPPING & DELIVERY
The prints will be shipped in a secure protection cardboard enveloppe. Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout.
We will need some time to process your order. Therefore, the delivery times given by Creative Shelter are indicative. If the estimated delivery time is exceeded, the customer is not entitled to compensation. The customer does not have the right to cancel the order or annul the agreement, unless the excess in delivery time is such that the customer can reasonably be expected not to maintain the agreement. In that case the customer is entitled to cancel the order or annul the agreement as far as it is necessary.
Only the customer will be liable for incorrect delivery addresses. When supplying a wrong delivery address, the costs for a second delivery will be at the expense of the customer. If you need to change your shipping address before your order is shipped please promptly email us. We are not able to redirect orders once they are in transit, in this event please contact the carrier with your tracking number for any special delivery requests. All orders will be shipped via bpost.
A free pickup in Gent is possible. If you choose this option, we will contact you when and where your order is ready for pick up.
For international deliveries: In case local taxes and/or import duties are requested, we will calculate these costs and let you know before we continue shipping the order.

Our shipping partner requires any damage to be reported within 7 days of receiving the print, so please make sure to open your package in time. Please keep all original packaging and the print as we may require photos and the original print to process your claim.
Creative Shelter cannot be held liable for possible delays in the execution or the non-execution of an order as a result of circumstances beyond the control of Creative Shelter. In the event of problems caused by supply or shortage of raw materials, interruption or permanent shutdown of production, strikes, lock-outs, any other forms of work interruption or collective labour disputes, energy shortages, delays in transport and any other forms of work interruption that affect Creative Shelter and/or its suppliers, Creative Shelter has the right to assert force majeure.
The fact that Creative Shelter does not immediately respond to a Customer’s shortcomings must not be considered evidence that Creative Shelter renounces its right to take action against the Customer.
