Studio visits are available by appointment, but please know our studio is not a retail location. Due to our art fair schedule, we can only accommodate studio visits on a limited basis and only to view original artwork(s). If you’d like to view a work in person prior to purchase, please contact us to schedule an appointment and include the title(s) of the work(s) of interest. In between our art fairs, all artwork is stored in bubble and/or carton, but we’d be happy to unwrap and hang a few selections in preparation for a studio visit with notice.

TERMS OF PURCHASE
All purchases from Dolan Geiman Inc. (“Artist” “we” or “our”) are subject to the following terms. Remitting payment to Artist to purchase Artwork (defined below) constitutes your (“Purchaser”) unconditional acknowledgment and acceptance of these terms and conditions.
Definition of Artworks: Artworks means works of art designed, developed, crafted, and/or manufactured by or for Artist and made available for sale.
Orders: Purchasers may place orders for Artwork in the ways listed in the How To Purchase Artwork section above. Generally, orders may be placed online, via email, or by telephone.
International Orders: Orders for Artwork greater than $550.00 requiring shipping to addresses outside of the U.S. must be placed via email. Please send a message to email@example.com with the following: a link to the Artwork(s) of interest, as well as the Purchaser’s shipping address, contact telephone number, and email address to permit Artist to send Purchaser a PayPal invoice.
Time Sensitive Orders: All rush orders must be submitted to Artist via telephone or email. Although not guaranteed, we will do our best to prepare and ship the Artwork to meet your deadline. Rush fees and/or expedited shipping charges may apply.
Invoices for Orders: Upon placing an order to purchase Artwork and depending on the type of order, Purchaser will receive an online order confirmation, invoice, or commission overview itemizing the Artwork ordered.
Payment for Artwork
Payment: Payment in full by Purchaser to Artist is required prior to shipment of the Artwork from Artist to Purchaser. Orders for Artwork placed online are paid in full upon checkout. For orders of Artwork placed via telephone or email, Artist will deliver an invoice to Purchaser setting forth Purchaser’s payment obligations. If the invoice is unpaid within seven (7) days of Artist’s delivery to Purchaser, Artist reserves the right to cancel the order. Title to the Artworks, excluding the copyright, and the right to full ownership and possession will pass from Artist to Purchaser only upon Artist’s receipt of full payment for the Artwork.
For reorders of Artwork placed by trade partners or orders of Artwork agreed in writing by Artist to ship prior to receipt of payment, payment is due within thirty (30) days of the invoice date. In the event Purchaser’s invoice is not paid by Purchaser within thirty (30) calendar days from the date Artist furnishes the invoice to Purchaser, Purchaser shall pay a late payment fee on the unpaid amount at the rate of 1-1/2% per month on any outstanding sums from the due date thereof until date of payment. Purchaser shall also pay all collection costs on any delinquent amounts including, but not limited to, any and all court costs and attorneys' fees. Though the Artwork may be in the possession of the Purchaser, title to the Artwork, excluding the copyright, and the right to full ownership does not pass from Artist to Purchaser until Artist receives full payment for the Artwork.
Sales Tax: Dolan Geiman collects sales tax on purchases made by Purchasers located in Colorado, which are subject to a 4.0% state + special district sales tax and Purchasers located in Texas, which are subject to an 6.25% state sales tax. Purchasers residing in Englewood, Colorado or those purchasing artwork directly from our studio are subject to 7.75% sales tax.
Shipping Address: All shipments require a physical address (non-Post Office Box).
Shipping Time: Shipping times vary depending on the type of Artwork as well as our travel schedule. For an estimated ship date prior to purchase, please contact us.

2-3 weeks: framed prints;
3-4 weeks: smaller made-to-order originals under $5000;

Inside delivery and installation are not included as part of Artist’s standard shipping procedure and are the sole responsibility of the Purchaser.
Delivery: Unless expressly requested by Purchaser, all packages ship without signature requirement via FedEx. It is at the FedEx driver’s sole discretion whether to leave a package at the location designated by Purchaser. In the event a FedEx employee elects not to leave the Artwork at the location designated by Purchaser, Purchaser is responsible for contacting FedEx to further discuss re-delivery and/or Purchaser’s pick-up options. Purchaser is responsible for any and all charges resulting from a package being returned due to non-delivery or re-routed to a different shipping address.
Returns: Due to the unique nature of our business, all sales are final and Artwork may not be returned or exchanged under any circumstances. The one exception is if a Purchaser receives Artwork as a gift. In this case, the Artwork may be exchanged for another Artwork of equal value or of greater value with payment of the difference in value. Under no circumstances, though, may the Artwork be exchanged for another Artwork of lesser value to receive a cash refund on the difference. Please contact us to discuss an exchange of a gift prior to return shipment. We will need the original purchaser’s name and purchase details to verify the Artwork purchase as a gift against our records. Purchasers are responsible for return shipping charges.
Damage: Artist assumes responsibility for all risk of damage or loss during transit by delivery carrier, it being understood that Artist's sole liability for loss of the Artworks shall be an amount equal to amounts paid by Purchaser to the Artist at the time of loss. Upon receipt of an order, Purchaser should carefully inspect the Artwork. Purchaser shall furnish Artist with written notice and reasonable evidence of any claimed defect in the Artworks, whether arising from damage during transit or otherwise, promptly upon delivery and in any event no later than two (2) calendar days after delivery. In the event that such notice is not received, Artist shall have no liability for such claimed deficiencies and all risk of loss or damage to Artworks shall transfer to Purchaser. In the event of a return for defect or damage, the return must be pre-authorized by Artist and Artist will send further instructions to Purchaser with the authorization. Please keep all original packing materials for return shipment of the Artwork.
