Order Timeline

Artwork processing times will vary according to the product in question.

Available, ready-made art is processed in 7-10 days, special commission work can take up to 8 weeks (or more, depending on the work itself) to be created and shipped.

Oftentimes, orders process faster than stated but we can’t guarantee a faster processing time.


Custom Orders

Emanuel de Sousa is available to do commission/custom artwork. Price and timeline will depend on how much work the artist is currently undertaking and the project being asked to create. The artist reserves the right to refuse a commission.

Please use the Contact Form to reach us about custom artwork.


We use Royal Mail Tracked; Royal Mail Tracked & Signed; or a courier service to ship your order, depending on the address it is to be sent to. Postage is calculated according to the total dimensions and weight of the item(s) purchased.

Large paintings are usually sent in a PVC, shock and leak-proof tube for safety and shipment pricing reasons - we will inform you when this is the case, whereby it will be the customer's responsibility to acquire a frame for the canvas. Small canvases are sent stretched.

We do our best to apply fair shipping costs to each order. 


Please make sure your shipping address is correct at the time of purchase. Emanuel de Sousa cannot be help responsible for items lost in the mail due to incorrect data provided.


Emanuel de Sousa is not responsible for duty or brokerage fees for international shipping. These charges come from your country during importation of your package.

We will include a truthful and accurate Customs slip when exporting goods. It is a criminal act to falsify customs documents in order to avoid charges, so in no circumstances will this be done.


Selecting expedited shipping during checkout does not necessarily ensure a faster processing time. Circumstances such as courier delivery delays are out of our hands and we cannot be held responsible for them.
