PRE-ORDER / IN-PRODUCTION POLICY


"BRANCHING" is a new woodcut print by Valerie Lueth, currently in progress at Tugboat Printshop.

Tugboat has firm pre-order rules that by placing a pre-order you acknowledge.


Pre-orders place faith in the artist's color choices, paper choices, and scale.

Pre-orders are not customizable.


T.B.P.S. prints are handmade and take time to make. If timeline is a concern, please wait to order.

I cannot rush shipment of pre-orders or specify an exact date when the print will be completed.
