When do you have new work available and can you let me know?

The best way to find out when new work will be available is to add yourself to our email list.  By becoming one of our VIPs, you will always be the first to know about new original artworks available for purchase, new items added to the Gallery Shop, and receive exclusive offer.  If you are on our email list, you will also receive our quarterly newsletter which will highlight upcoming events and sales. 

Do you take commissions?

YES! Linda, Ron, and Mona Rae all take commissions. Email Linda Chido at linda@lindachido.com to discuss your project. After we have agreed on the specifics of your project, we will send a Contract/Agreement for you to sign.  This Contract will outline everything we agreed upon and make clear all of our policies. This makes sure we are both in agreement and everything is transparent. We want you to feel really good about your project with us and we don't want there to be any surprises! Once you return your signed contract to us, we will send you an invoice for a deposit of 50% of the project cost. When the payment has cleared, we will add your project to our calendar. Shipping cost will be added to your final invoice. Please be advised that large work over 48 inches in any direction may require special crating and shipping.

Yes. The Gallery (LINDA CHIDO ART) splits the sale of artwork 50/50 with all of the family artists.

YES! Please email Linda linda@lindachido.com

Who does your shipping?

Currently, we use Austin Mail Express in Austin, Texas, for shipping all of our Original Artwork purchased from the LINDA CHIDO ART Gallery Shop.

For larger artworks requiring crating, we are researching speciality art shippers.  That information will be posted here when we have it.

Our print on demand items (posters, clothing and stickers) are shipped directly from Printful, our print on demand service provider.

What are your shipping rates?

All items in the Gallery Shop will have shipping costs listed.

For original artworks coming from our studio, we base our shipping cost on the size and weight of the artwork. Because each artwork is unique, shipping rates may vary. 

For original paintings and sculpture that require speciality crating and shipping, Linda will contact you with shipping costs before finalizing your order.

For our print on demand items (posters, clothing and stickers) we use Printful's shipping rates.  Printful sets these rates.

You can read more about shipping in our article, Let's Talk About Shipping.

How do you make your prints?

Our prints are made in two different ways:

1) Posters are produced through our print on demand service (Printful).  Prints are both digital reproductions of original paintings and original digital artwork printed onto Epson Professional paper.  All of our poster are fulfilled and shipped through Printful.

2) Fine art reproductions are high-quality printings on fine art paper or canvas. The papers and inks are archival and use the most accurate print technology. Original artwork is professionally photographed or digitally scanned, and then color corrected to produce highest quality digital image. Then, the digital image is printed onto fine art paper or canvas. Fine art reproductions are typically numbered and signed. Currently we are using Miss Pixel Perfect in Austin, Texas for our fine art reproductions, digital scanning and photography.  

How long will it take to get my art?

Original artworks are shipped from our studio in Buda, TX.  Please see our Terms of Service for shipping and delivery information.

If you ordered a poster, clothing or stickers, our print on demand servicer takes 2-5 business days to fulfill orders and 5-14 days for shipping. Though they do not guarantee these times. If it's been 14 days and you have not received your item, please contact Linda and she will help you resolve the issue.

A note on color.

Everyone sees color slightly differently. We will be happy to take the time to show you more images of a print or painting. Computers are also calibrated differently as well, so if necessary view the image on another monitor or email Linda with any questions you may have. 

I still have questions.

Linda will be happy to answer all of your questions. We want your art purchasing experience to be enjoyable. We understand that purchasing art is a highly personal experience and an investment. Please send your questions to Linda in an email.

If you would like to discuss your questions or concerns further, Linda would be happy to schedule a phone conversation.
