Help! I can’t decide which artwork to buy!

When choosing an artwork, take a moment to tune into your feelings and let this help you decide which piece/s to go for. If buying art is a new thing for you, give it a try, the chances are you will LOVE it. If you really can’t decide, then toss a coin - your reaction to the outcome will often will give you the answer.

 

Is the art I ordered an original piece?

Original artworks: All original artworks are one of a kind, created by Sig Waller and described as such. Original artworks (such as drawings, paintings and embroidered pieces), will generally have a higher price point than prints or editions, and are more collectable.

Embroidery: All works in this category are unique, hand-embroidered artworks by Sig Waller, and take many long hours to make. Embroidered pieces are highly collectable, and quite rare.

Editions: If a work is specified as an edition, it means that it is handmade by Sig Waller and has been released as part of a small, signed & numbered edition. The listed, depicted edition number of these artworks will correspond to the one you will receive in the post. The price of editioned artworks will go up, as the number of available artworks goes down - in other words, editions will get more expensive as they sell out - so get your orders in early! Editions are generally more affordable than original works, and are ideal if you are looking for something more unique than a print.

Customised Prints: If a work is described as a customised print it means that it is a reproduction which has been modified by hand and released as part of an edition. The listed edition number of these artworks will correspond to the one you will receive in the post. Customised prints are more valuable than standard prints.

Prints: If a work is identified as a print it means it is a reproduction and not an original. Print edition numbers are usually higher, for example prints may come in editions of 100-250. However, rest assured that you will receive a signed and numbered print within the parameters of the edition.


How are your prints made?

Our prints are made using acid-free archival quality fine art papers by Hahnemühle, and printed with Epson archival inks. All prints are signed & numbered by the artist and released as part of an edition.


Do you sell Artist Proofs?

Yes, Sig Waller also sells APs, and each individual edition comes with a set number of artist proofs (usually 2-3). However, these are currently not available online, and if you are interested in one of these, then please contact us direct at sig@sigwaller.com


Will I receive a certificate of authenticity?

Yes, all artworks by Sig Waller (including the editioned prints) now come with a signed certificate of authenticity. Please keep this certificate in a safe place, you may need it one day, especially if you decide to re-sell.


How do you pack the art?

Smaller works on paper are wrapped in acid-free glassine paper, sealed in plastic and attached to cardboard to keep their shape. They are then wrapped in paper, and put in a fortified cardboard envelope or letter-packing box.

Larger works on paper are wrapped in acid-free glassine paper, sealed in plastic and shipped in a tube.

Paintings and canvas works are wrapped in acid-free tissue paper and several layers of bubble-wrap and shipped in custom-made boxes.

Textile pieces are wrapped in acid-free tissue paper, sealed in a waterproof plastic mailer and then shipped in either a padded mailer reinforced with card or in a cardboard box.

Yes, you will find our Return Policy under Info in the navigation bar above.


Can I pay for an artwork in instalments?

No, it is currently not possible to pay in instalments. However, Sig Waller will be joining Patreon in 2018, and some patrons will be able to use their monthly contributions towards buying art in this shop. So if you want to pay in instalments, this could be an option for you. Sig will also be making a Patreon-only collection, so watch this space!

Is the work sold framed or unframed?

All art sold through this shop is unframed. This way we are able to offer free shipping and you have the freedom to choose a frame in your own time, to suit your taste and requirements.

Can you suggest some frames?

We recommend that you get the work framed professionally by a good local framer. If this isn’t an option, then most interior & design stores sell a variety of frames. We particularly love the RIBBA series by Ikea, which is available in black or white, and comes in a good selection of sizes.


Why are some of your original drawings cheaper than the editions?

Because there is no middleman, we are able to make some of Sig’s smaller drawings available at very affordable prices. Sig wants more people to own and enjoy her art, and hopes this goes some way towards making this possible.


Why aren’t more of your paintings for sale online?

Larger paintings by Sig Waller are currently not available for sale via this shop. Please contact Sig direct via sig@sigwaller.com if you are interested in collecting her larger artworks, or in commissioning a piece. Paintings represent a fantastic long-term investment, and owning one will be of consequence one day.
