Return Address

National Gallery of Art
Gallery Shops Fulfillment Center

If your order arrives damaged or missing items, please contact us immediately, as we must file a report with FedEx within 10 calendar days from the date you received your order. In the case of damage, it is important that all packaging be saved so FedEx can determine how the damage occurred. Credits for shipping charges are only given when an item is received in damaged condition or if the item received is incorrect.

Refunds for items received as gifts will be issued in the form of an electronic gift certificate for the price paid by the purchaser, provided the original order can be identified. Without a packing slip, a refund will be issued at the lowest selling price.

About NGA Custom Prints

The National Gallery of Art Custom Prints program is designed to provide a much wider range of images than we are able to carry at the Gallery Shops to be available to the public as top quality print reproductions. Our collaboration with technology and print specialists allows us a number of customer conveniences, such as being able to pick from a menu of options including print size, a choice of paper or canvas, and a range of framing styles. All the printing and optional framing is done in the USA with orders custom-produced and shipped for delivery within two weeks. Because everything is made to order, sales are final and non-returnable. Visit NGA Custom Prints to learn more about this program and purchase your custom prints today.

Please note the NGA Custom Prints program is separate from the Gallery Shops website, and you cannot combine custom prints with items purchased at the Gallery Shops in the same order. Coupons and promotions for the Gallery Shops may not be valid on custom prints.
