PRE-ORDER POLICY


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

This block will be printed in 4-block COLOR.


Pre-ordering "BRANCHING" reserves an authentic, limited edition woodcut print in COLOR

from the upcoming edition of woodcuts soon to be completed.


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.

Updates to progress are provided on this page; I will be in touch directly as prints finish.

"BRANCHING" pre-orders will be shipped when production is complete and prints are dry.


All pre-order sales are final. No returns. No exchanges.

An image of generation & growth, "BRANCHING" leaves & limbs zig-zag in all directions.



The tree sheds & redistributes as it climbs ever upwards.

When carved, the key block image will be transferred on press to 3 additional color blocks.

The color from those blocks will add subtle tone & shape beneath the key detail.
