Write to us and describe what you are looking for and we will do our best to make it happen for you!

What paper do you use for posters?

We are very proud to only work with paper from Hahnemühle, one of the world's leading manufacturers of fine art paper. Our customers experience that the paper from Hahnemühle gives the posters an exclusive look and feel. The paper type is called Hahnemühle Matt Fibre 200g and has a warm tone which gives the motifs a fantastic depth. The paper is matte and has a very soft surface with a nice texture. The paper is free from acid and has a very low OBA content. If you store and assemble our posters correctly, you can count on them lasting up to 60 years!

What fabric do you use for the canvas paintings?

Again, our beloved Hahnemühle. All canvas paintings are made by hand in Sweden and the motifs are printed on one of the world's most exclusive canvas fabrics. Art Canvas Smooth which gives the works an incredible feeling. The fabric is carpeted and made of a blend of polyester and cotton. The creamy white color makes the motifs colors wonderfully vivid. The fabric contains no optical brighteners and has a smooth, uniform fabric structure. The fabric is acid- and lignin-free and meets the most demanding requirements in terms of age resistance. 

What is the resolution and cropping of the images?

Since some pictures are over 100 years old, they are naturally a bit more blurred and blurry than completely new pictures - we think that is part of the charm! All our products are of good quality and have been carefully inspected by us. The motifs are trimmed slightly differently to fit optimally in each size. 

Is a frame included?

Frames are not included when purchasing a poster but we offer several high quality frames in plexiglass at competitive prices.

Where are Historlys posters and canvases produced?

We produce all our posters and canvas paintings in Sweden.

Shipping

Which countries do you deliver to and what does it cost? 

We deliver to the whole world! Shipping is completely free! 

How long is your delivery time?

For posters below:

Delivery time in the Nordic countries is about 1-3 working days. 
In the rest of Europe, the delivery time is 2-5 working days. 
In other parts of the world, delivery time is about 3-8 working days. 

As for canvas prints, we make them by hand in our factory in Sweden. The canvas fabric needs to dry before we fasten them on a wooden frame and send them to you. The delivery time for a canvas is therefore about 7 working days in the Nordic countries, slightly longer to other countries.

    Which delivery point is the order delivered to?
    Your order is sent by DHL to your nearest delivery point. Unfortunately, you can not choose the delivery point yourself, but DHL automatically decides which is your nearest delivery point based on the address you provided when ordering. You can clearly see which agent the package has arrived at in the notification you receive when the package arrives. You can buy for direct delivery - write to us if you want this!

    Can I return an item and what do I do then?
    We offer 30 days open purchase on posters and frames. Unfortunately, it is not possible to return a canvas as these are produced when placing orders specifically for you as a customer and can not be resold. It is also not possible to return frames on which you have ordered a framing service, of course not even the framing service itself that is performed in the factory when ordering one.
    In the event of a return, you as a customer are responsible for the return shipping that costs SEK 59 (exception for 100x140 frames which costs SEK 400 in return cost due to the size) and is deducted from the amount we pay back to you for the returned item. Products must be returned undamaged in the original packaging. The right of exchange and return cannot be exercised if the product is specially adapted for you personally. Frames are delivered with a protective plastic that must not be opened if you want the right to return a frame (frames that have been framed at the request of the customer can not be returned). Posters are delivered sealed with a sticker over the protective paper in which it is wrapped. You must not break / open the seal if you want to be able to exercise your right of withdrawal. 

    If you wish to make a return, please email us at hello@historly.com and enter your name, order number / invoice number and which items you want to return including their product name and quantity. We will send a return code that you take with you with your ID to an optional DHL Service Point within 14 days of you notifying us of the return. When we receive the product, we will check that the seal has not been broken / opened and that the goods have no unreasonable wear and / or damage before we make a refund. We apply a complete reduction in value if the product cannot be resold. 

    Packages that are not picked up
    If the products are returned to us due to them not being picked up at the delivery point in time, we will charge a cost of SEK 180 (approximately XNUMX EUR) to cover the costs for double shipping and handling of the return.
