In the Continental United States, all items are shipped via FedEx Ground or the United States Postal Service. Our warehouse is located in the Chicago area, so time in transit to the 48 contiguous United States is rarely more than 4 to 5 working days after the order has shipped out of our warehouse.
We ship 80% of orders within 3-4 business days. If an item is out of stock and will not be available within 4 days, we will take the liberty of shipping what we can and sending the remaining item(s) separately at no additional shipping charge when they become available. Most delayed items will ship within one week.
When placing your order you may select an expedited service. All expedited services (2nd Day Air, Overnight, etc. are via FedEx). Orders must be placed before 11am Central Standard Time for expedited shipment to occur the same day. Custom Frame sectionals are an exception to this as the are made especially for you. These will take at least 24 hours to ship via expedited shipping service.
Shipments to Alaska, Hawaii and US Territories
Items shipping to Alaska, Hawaii and US territories will cost more and customers will be notified of additional shipping charges via email before the order is processed. You may go ahead and place your order online. However, the shipping that is automatically assigned is for the continental US only. You will be notified of additional shipping charges via email before the order is processed. Upon your approval of the revised shipping charges, the order will be processed. Free Shipping offers do not apply to customers outside of the 48 contiguous United States.
Our shopping cart is not optimized to assign foreign shipping charges. However, customers in Canada can actually order and pay on-line by using a two step process. First, email us, expressing your intention to place an order and include your name, address and telephone number. Then go the website and place the order. When you get to the page where you put in your name and address, key in the zip code 60067. Then you can continue on and make payment and process the order. A different amount will be shown on the confirmation for shipping and handling since the system defaults to US shipping rates. Your actual shipping costs will be higher. Also Note, you will be responsible for all duties and taxes. These charges may exceed the quoted amount. We have no control over what the Canadian government will charge for duties and taxes and these must be the responsibility of the Canadian customer. We will notify you by email of the shipping and handling charges as they are relayed to us by FedEx, and upon your approval, process and ship the order. Free Shipping offers do not apply to customers outside of the 48 contiguous United States.
Framing4Yourself no longer ships outside of North America.
Occasionally we will experience a delay in shipping a particular item. When this happens, and when there are other items on the order, we will take the liberty of shipping those items that we can as soon as possible, and back ordering the delayed item(s). This will never result in an increase in your shipping and handling charges and you will be given notification of when you can expect the back ordered items to arrive.

Framing4Yourself.com guarantees that the products it sells are of the finest quality and free from defects. (Note: An exception exists with regard to minor, normal and foreseeable damage due to shipment on matboard and foamboard products – see the details below.) If a product is defective, it can be returned within 30 days and a new item will be sent to you. Merchandise should not be returned without a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA). No refunds, credits or returns will be accepted or processed with out an RMA number. To notify us of a return, email us or call us at 1-800-246-4726.

Custom Cut Items: Frames, Acrylic, Mat Board, Foam Board
Custom items, including custom cut sectional frames, may not be returned for credit or refund. Each custom cut item is made especially for you at the size you request. You are solely responsible for making the correct measurements. We will replace any custom item if we have not cut the frame to the size that was requested.
Assumption of risk on mat board and foam board shipments
Dings, dents and dog-ears are minor, normal and foreseeable circumstances in the shipment of mat board or foam board. You should anticipate this. Most customers trim full size sheets down to smaller sizes before use, and in doing so, trim away damaged edges. Framing4Yourself.com will not accept returns for minor damage to mat board or foam board. If you feel that the damage is severe enough to warrant recompense you must make the claim directly with the carrier. Framing4Yourself.com takes every precaution to insure safe shipment of its mat board and foam board products and enjoys a good track record in this regard.
9 Sheet Minimum on Mat Board
We have a 9 sheet minimum for two reasons. One: Shipping a fuller carton makes your shipment less prone to damage. Two: The more you order the lower your cost per sheet as the shipping charge is spread over a greater number of sheets. You may mix any style and color of 32″x40″ mat boards to reach the minimum. If you order less than the 9 sheet minimum, your order will be cancelled and any charges made to your card for the mat board or foam board portion of your order will be refunded.
Wholesale moulding 96-100 feet
Our 100 foot packages are shipped based on the stock lengths available in our warehouse. In our warehouse moulding may be stocked in 9, 10, 11 or 12 foot sticks; however, we cannot ship you lengths longer than 5 feet via FedEx without incurring oversize charges that will increase the cost of your shipping. Therefore, we will cut the moulding before shipping it to you. We will do our best to fill the majority of your 100 feet in 5 foot sections, but we are at the mercy of the stock lengths in our warehouse. Rest assured that there is color consistency between sticks. Please note that orders for 100 foot packages are not returnable.
