Try to contact me at least six months in advance of when you need the drawing completed. I am unable to accept every project that is proposed to me, so please do not be offended if I decline the commission. <br><br> You may read my full list of policies on new commissions <a href="http://danielmitsui.tripod.com/00_pages/mitsui_policies.pdf">here</a>. </span> <br> <br> <hr> <br> <center> <span class="style2"> <a name="SHIPPING">NOTES on SHIPPING</a></span></center> <br> <br> <span class="style3"> Hand-colored prints are here considered original artwork. <br><br> Original artwork is shipped within the USA via Registered Mail, insured for its full value. Original artwork is shipped internationally via whichever means are most appropriate to the specific work of art and its destination. <br> <br> Prints are shipped within the USA and internationally via Priority or First Class Mail. Coloring books are shipped within the USA via Media Mail. I do not insure shipments of prints or coloring books. <br> <br> Allow 3-6 weeks for delivery for orders of prints shipped within the USA. Orders of original artwork and orders shipped internationally may take longer to arrive.</span> <br> <br> <hr> <br> <center> <span class="style2"> <a name="EMAIL">NOTES on E-MAIL NEWSLETTER</a></span></center> <br> <br> <span class="style3"> I subscribe to my e-mail newsletter anyone who places an order through my website or contacts me about a commission. If you do not want to receive this, please just make a note of it on the purchase form or in our correspondence. <br><br>The newsletter is sent about four times per year. </span> <br> <br> <hr> <br> <center> <span class="style2"> <a name="MATERIALS ORIGINAL">NOTES on MATERIALS: ORIGINAL DRAWINGS</a></span></center> <br> <br> <span class="style3">Any patron may request a full list of the specific materials used in the creation of an original drawing. To the best of my knowledge, the materials used in the creation of my original drawings are permanent, lightfast and acid-free. <br> <br> My usual materials include Bristol board, handmade cotton paper, calfskin vellum, goatskin parchment, <i>washi</i> made from kozo or gampi, pigment-based calligraphy ink, sumi ink, technical pens, pencils, 23k gold leaf, palladium leaf, acrylic gesso, Instacoll gilding size and gum ammoniac.</span> <br> <br> <hr> <br> <center> <span class="style2"> <a name="MATERIALS LETTERPRESS">NOTES on MATERIALS: MILLEFLEUR PRESS ITEMS</a></span></center> <br> <br> <span class="style3">The broadsides and fine press books issued by Millefleur Press are printed with vegetable oil (linseed, corn or soy) based inks on acid-free papers. The specific inks and papers used are noted on the <a href="http://danielmitsui.tripod.com/00_pages/millefleur.html" target="_blank">Millefleur Press</a> web page.</span> <br> <br> <hr> <br><center> <span class="style2"> <a name="MATERIALS BOOKPLATES">NOTES on MATERIALS: BOOKPLATES</a></span></center> <br> <br> <span class="style3">The universal bookplates issued by Millefleur Press and the custom letterpress bookplates that I sell are printed with vegetable oil (linseed, corn or soy) based inks on acid-free papers. They do not have adhesive backing. To paste them into books, I recommend using an acid-free glue that dries flexible (such as bookbinders&rsquo; PVA). <br><br> To the best of my knowledge, none of the materials used are likely to damage books into which the bookplates are pasted. However, I am not liable for any damage to books that results from putting bookplates in them. </span> <br> <br> <hr> <br> <center> <span class="style2"> <a name="MATERIALS GICLEE">NOTES on MATERIALS: GICL&Eacute;E PRINTS</a></span></center> <br> <br> <span class="style3">Gicl&eacute;e prints are made on a spray-jet printer from a high-resolution digital scan or photograph. They are printed on acid-free paper (usually Hahnemhle Photorag 308, Hahnemhle German Etching 310 or Lexjet Archival Matte) with Epson Ultrachrome pigmented inks that have been rated for lightfastness to approximately 80 years under good conditions. <br> <br> Please note that some original drawings were made on goatskin parchment or calfskin vellum, which are not perfectly white, flat or homogenous. Natural variations in the color and thickness of the goatskin or calfskin show up in the gicl&eacute;e prints, especially in the outer borders. These are not smudges or printing errors, but part of the artwork itself. </span> <br> <br> <hr> <br> <center> <span class="style2"> <a name="SIGNATURES">NOTES on SIGNATURES & EDITIONS</a></span></center> <br> <br> <span class="style3">I no longer issue numbered, limited-edition prints. Each open-edition letterpress broadside bears either a printed DM monogram on the front or a DM monogram written in pencil on the back. Each open-edition gicl&eacute;e print bears a DM monogram written in pencil on the back. A monogram or signature serves to identify the print as my work; it does not add to its value. </span> <br> <br> <hr> <br> <center> <span class="style2"> <a name="COPYRIGHT">NOTES on INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY</a></span></center> <br> <br> <span class="style3">I retain the copyright to all of my works of art, including those created on commission, unless otherwise negotiated. <br> <br> If you want to license an image, e-mail me at danielmitsuiartist at gmail dot com.</span> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br></span> <center> <img border="0" alt="all works copyright Daniel Mitsui / danielmitsuiartist at gmail dot com" src="http://danielmitsui.tripod.com/00_misc/footer1.jpg"> </span></center> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br></body></html>
