We offer free shipping on orders of $100 or more and a flat-rate shipping charge of $9.95 on orders less than $100.
Shipping artwork requires special packaging and attention. If you are ordering framed prints, canvas prints, or originals, we will add a surcharge to cover this extra packaging, delivery cost, and insurance, even if your order totals $100 or more.
As you can imagine, it is much more expensive to deliver a large, framed print than it is to deliver an unframed print on paper. We want your items to arrive in perfect condition, no matter their size. If your item requires a surcharge it will be noted on the product page as you make your selection, and in your shopping cart when you check out. Our surcharges are based on product weight and size, and reflect our actual costs to safely deliver your artwork.
If you’d like to pick up your order in Duluth or Grand Marais to save on shipping or surcharge fees, call 218-387-2491 and place your order by phone. We welcome all phone orders!

Betsy Bowen makes woodblock prints from her studio in a former Grand Marais, Minnesota, Lutheran church. Her art shows us a glimpse of life in the north woods, and her prints illustrate many books for children and adults. Originally from Chicago, Betsy discovered woodcuts as a young art student in Sarasota, Florida. The vigor of wood carving was appealing: “Cutting an image into wood is a commitment…it’s a bold act to cut for hours with sharp tools, making a backwards picture onto a slab of wood—and believe it will be pleasing, or meaningful, when finally printed.” Bowen still lives on the Grand Marais family homestead where she raised her three boys.
