Service Terms and Conditions

If you have questions about a topic not covered here, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.


In accordance with Australian copyright law, a person who owns copyright of a work/artwork has the exclusive rights to produce copies of that work. The copyright owner may also allow others to make copies of their work. To legally produce copies of another person’s artwork, you must have the express permission of the creator/copyright holder. It is your responsibility to ensure you have this permission. Hound & Bone will not be held liable for any breach of copyright that you may commit in copying any material that may be owned by another person.

We reserve the right to ask that we see written permission from the copyright holder/artwork creator should we have any doubts about the ownership of the artworks we are asked to produce prints of. If you copy a work that is protected by copyright and do not have permission to make copies, you may be sued by the copyright holder – even if you are only copying a small part of the entire work.

File Management & IP

As a print business we are entrusted with sensitive, valuable materials on a daily basis – and it’s our job to treat those materials carefully with the utmost respect. It’s our job to understand what we can and can’t do with those materials.

When you place a print order with Hound & Bone, you will be asked to acknowledge that any files you send will be filed in Hound & Bone’s archives, unless you expressly opt-out.

Files sent to Hound & Bone are, by default, saved in our archives. You may access these files at any stage and you retain full copyright of your files at all times. If you want your files permanently removed from our archives, please let us know once your order is printed and complete.


At no point do we have the right to use your files/IP  for any purpose other than the work we’ve been contracted to do.

If we want to feature  your work on our social media, we will ask for your consent before sharing anything.

Order turnaround times

Fine art printing ranges between 3 and 10 business days, depending on the number of prints. We can give you a better estimate when we know the particulars of your order. Raw scans are typically completed within 1 business day, and art reproductions range between 5 and 14 business days, depending on the size and volume of work you need digitised. Please note that if you have a large body of work requiring scanning, it may take up to 3-6 weeks. Again, we’ll have a better idea of turnaround time when we have some details from you.

Please note that from time to time, unexpected situations may arise that delay our print/scan schedule. If we encounter technological failures or other unforeseen complications, we cannot guarantee to always meet deadlines. While we do our best to plan for such scenarios, we suggest allowing plenty of time for your order to be completed.


All orders are sent via Australia Post eParcel and require a signature on delivery. We use Momentum Messenger for same-day Melbourne metro deliveries (on request). Extra large parcels will be sent via courier – options and pricing will be discussed with you when you place your order.
Alternatively, orders can be picked up from our studio. When your order is ready, we’ll get in touch to arrange a time for pick-up.

In-store collection

If you choose to collect your prints from our studio, we will send you a link to our collections calendar. Collection times must be arranged with us – please do not turn up unannounced.

If you are picking up prints in person, please bring along something to pack your prints in. Alternatively, packing materials (mailer boxes and tubes) are available to purchase from us.

Packing of orders

Sheet prints are packed individually in archival plastic sleeves. Roll prints will be cut to the size specified by you when ordering, and will be delivered rolled in archival poly film. Prints smaller than A2 are sleeved in archival polypropylene sleeves and mailed inside a custom-sized mailer box. Larger prints are rolled carefully in an archival poly film and shipped in strong mailing tubes.



Handmade fine art materials can be subject to manufacturer imperfections, however, we implement stringent colour management practices and custom ICC profiles to minimise the effects of these imperfections. If you have any questions prior to placing your order, get in touch –  we’re very happy to run through all your options.

Handling of original artworks

While all possible care is taken when handling and storing original artworks, we cannot take responsibility for incidental damage or accidental damage. While it is very unlikely that any damage will occur, and all possible measures are taken to protect artworks, we cannot guarantee that artworks involving very delicate, transferable or unaffixed/unsecured media will always return to you in their original state. By leaving artworks in our care, you are agreeing to these terms and conditions.

Payments and refunds

You’ll receive an invoice when your order is confirmed. All advertised prices include GST.

Orders less than $500 must be paid in full prior to print commencement – once paid, your job progresses to our print queue. 

Orders over $500.00 require a 50% commencement deposit. Once the commencement deposit is paid, your job progresses to our print queue. The balance is due upon completion of your order.

We take payment by direct deposit, Stripe, PayID or EFTPOS. All work must be paid for before it leaves the studio, unless otherwise agreed.

If your payment is more than 14 days late, a late payment/dishonour fee will apply for every week your invoice remains overdue (to the sum of 10% of your total invoice, per week).

Refunds are handled on a case-by-case basis. We endeavour to make all our prints to the highest possible standard and will work with you to resolve any problems, should they arise.
