.. Will the MichiganScienceArt watermark appear on my print, as it does on the web image?
No, the ©michiganscienceart mark will not be on your print. We use it on our website to discourage unauthorized use of our images.

What type of prints are they?
Our prints are signed, are open-edition, and are printed from digital files (of scanned originals) with archival ink, on bright white Epson Archival Matte paper. If your print is properly cared for, it will last at least 75 years. The latin name(s) of the animal(s) will be printed below the images. Each print is inspected for quality before it is mailed.

What type of originals are they?
Our originals are gouache, a type of paint that is similar to watercolor, but is opaque. These, of course, are signed as well. The surfaces are variable; the artists used watercolor paper, bristol board, illustration board, colored matboard, and others. If you wish to know on what surface a particular painting is, please contact us.
The original paintings also vary greatly in size. You can see the approximate size of each painted image listed by each individual animal. The paintings may come with small “birthmarks,” stray marks of paint that can typically be hidden by a mat.


How is my order shipped, and when can I expect it?
Our unmatted prints and originals are shipped within 10 days of receiving your order, and will take at least three business days to arrive (within the U.S.). Matted or framed items will take up to three weeks longer. Originals are properly packaged and shipped with insurance. Contact us about special delivery needs. We will do our best to accomodate.

If I don't find the animal that I want, can I commission a painting?
