Back Orders


Our online inventory is generally up-to-date.  However, if your order exceeds our available inventory, we will contact you immediately and give you the option to cancel your order, or keep your order active until new inventory arrives.



International Orders


International orders must be paid in full prior to being shipped.  All payments must be made in US Dollars.


For international orders our preferred payment method is a bank wire transfer, or a Western Union payment.  For orders under USD 150, shipping to Canada, western Europe, Australia or New Zealand, payment can be made online, when using a verified shipping address.


We are not responsible for customs clearance in your country, or for any duties or import fees.  Please check with your local customs office in advance of placing any order to check fees or import restrictions that may apply.  Your local customs authority may ask for the Harmonized Code for gold leaf, which is 7108.13.10.  We will not falsify customs documents to avoid paying fees or duties in the destination country.


Shipments containing flammable materials, such as primers, topcoats, and oil-base size, MUST be shipped by ground services, and can therefore only be shipped to the US and Canada.


Orders returned to us due to import restrictions, or for non-payment of duties or fees, will be subject to a restocking fee.  Costs for returning your payment will deducted from the refund.  Shipping costs are not refundable.



To place an international order, please add the items you would like to the online shopping cart.  Using the Ship to drop-down, Select Outside U.S., then click Send Order Information.  Fill in the required information on the form, and then Send Order Information.  Once we have the order information, we will calculate shipping costs, and email you with an order invoice, and shipping and payment options.


If you are interested in a special order item, please contact us.


Customer Satisfaction


If for any reason you are not satisfied with any of our gold leaf products, please contact us.



Return Policy


If you wish to return any of our products, please contact us in advance.


Returns received more than 30 days after purchase are subject to a 20% restocking fee.  Unless previously authorized, returns are not accepted more than 60 days after purchase.


Returned items must be in their original packaging and condition.  Books with broken seals will not be accepted for return.


Shipping fees are not refundable.  If the actual cost of shipping was more than what was paid for shipping, the difference will be deducted from the refund.


Special or custom orders are not returnable.


If American Express was used for payment, fees charged by American Express to accept the payment will be deducted from any refund amount.


Leaf products are fragile and easily damaged, therefore they should be shipped in packaging that will protect them from damage.  A book returned inside a standard letter envelope, or a pack shipped without padding WILL be damaged by postal equipment, and will not be eligible for a refund.  Please use the original padded envelope, or box with packing peanuts, when shipping items back.


We are not responsible for packages that we do not receive, nor are we responsible for damage caused by the shipping company used for the return.  Consider adding shipping insurance if the return is valuable.


IMPORTANT: Shipments containing flammable materials, such as primers, topcoats, and oil-base size,MUST be shipped by ground services.  FAA fines for shipping flammable materials by air are hefty.



Sales Tax (California Only)

We collect sales tax on orders shipped to California addresses.


If you are purchasing for resale, and have a Resale Certificate issued by the California Board of Equalization, please fax or email a copy of the certificate to us PRIOR to your order being shipped.  Other forms or documentation cannot be accepted.  The exemption is ONLY valid for orders shipped to the address on the certificate.


Religious and non-profit organizations arenot automatically exempt from paying California sales tax.  To avoid having sales tax collected, you will need an exemption certificate issued by the California State Board of Equalization.  Other forms or documentation cannot be accepted.
