FAQs

By purchasing a print on this site you are directly supporting artists during this strange and financially challenging time.
Most of us are self-employed and rely on contracts and random gigs to make ends meet. Right now, a lot of those jobs have been canceled.
Thank you for interest in this initiative.
A minimum of 5% of all proceeds will be donated to the Ottawa Food Bank.

 

Pick-Up

Please note that, as soon as regular life has resumed, all prints will be available for pick-up at House of Common Studio in Ottawa.
Customers will be contacted by email when prints are ready for pick-up.
We kindly ask that customers please not show up unannounced as we are mostly working from home right now.

Our address is:
House of Common Studio
11B Fairmont Avenue
Ottawa, Ontario
K1Y 1X4

 

Shipping

At this time, shipping is only available in Canada & the US.
Please note that we will only start printing and shipping orders once regular life and business have resumed.

Smaller prints will ship via regular post and, once they have been shipped, may take up to 2 weeks to receive.
Larger Prints will ship via Expedited Post.

 

Returns

Because of the nature of this project, we cannot accept returns or offer refunds. That said, if you are not completely satisfied with your print, we invite you to contact the artist directly and discuss the matter with them.

 

Submissions

We invite interested artists to submit their work by contacting us and sending examples of or a link to their work at info@houseofcommon.studio . While we wish we could accept everyone, we can realistically only accept as many artists as our small team can manage at this time. Please also note that (we don't mean to be rude but) we will only be replying to accepted artists.
