Frequently Asked Questions
Artists and Artwork
How are items selected for inclusion on your site?
All of the artwork on Hawaii’s Woodshow Marketplace website are pieces that have been entered into Hawaii’s Woodshow live exhibition. Each entry has gone through an extensive selection process to ensure our collection is of the highest quality.
Do you offer special orders or custom work?
Yes. Some artists are happy to alter the dimensions or colors of the artwork we offer. Depending upon the modification, this may change the price of the item. Please contact HFIA at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with special orders.
Placing an Order
How do I place an order?
Placing an order is simple! Just follow the instructions below, Ordering Online.
When is my payment charged?
Your payment is charged at the time your order is placed. All of the artists who sell through Hawaii’s Woodshow Marketplace are working from independent studios.
Can I place an order from an international address?
We are able to accept orders from international locations, as long as payment is made via PayPal. We’re sorry, but we cannot currently ship to locations outside Hawaii and the mainland contiguous United States.
Why are orders shipping to Hawaii addresses taxed?
The Hawaii Forest Industry Association (HFIA), the company that presents Hawaii’s Woodshow Marketplace, is based in Hawaii. According to state and federal tax rules, we are required to charge sales tax on any item shipped to a Hawaii address.
Is shipping different for residents of the mainland USA and Canada?
Yes. Since purchases shipping to the mainland USA and Canada must ship via air service, additional charges apply. If you would like an item shipped outside of Hawaii and the contiguous mainland USA, contact HFIA at email@example.com.
When will my artwork ship?
After placing your order, you will receive an email telling you when to expect your artwork. Once the artist ships your order, you will receive another email that includes the shipper’s tracking information.
If you have questions about delivery times or tracking packages, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Returning an Item
What is your return policy?
Items purchased through Hawaii’s Woodshow Marketplace may be returned within 14 days of receipt. See Buyer’s Protection Policy for information on returning an item.
How do I return an item?
Here is the simple process for returning an item:
- Contact HFIA by emailing us at email@example.com to obtain return instructions.
- Art items are returned to the artist who created them. You are responsible for shipping costs. We will send you a return label via email or regular mail.
- Repack the product in its original packaging materials, unless the package’s condition is not suitable for a safe return back to the artist. You are responsible for artwork damaged in return transit. If you are returning an item because it was defective or we shipped you an item that you did not order, Hawaii’s Woodshow Marketplace will pay the return-shipping costs.
When will I receive my credit?
You can expect a refund in the same form of payment originally used for purchase within four weeks of the artist receiving your return, providing it arrives safely. You will be credited for the price of the artwork minus shipping costs. Hawaii’s Woodshow Marketplace does not give credit for shipping and handling costs. We cannot accept items that have been damaged, altered, or worn. We will notify you of the status of your return by email if you provided an email address at the time you placed your order.
