Do you have a printed catalog of your prints?

The Nordic Folklore database contains listings for hundreds of art prints, and this database is growing and being updated frequently. Our inventory is many times larger than what one might find in a physical print store, or even a typical publishing house. A printed version of our catalog would be not only impossibly large, but it would be out of date almost immediately after its ink had dried. For this reason, we do not offer a printed version of our catalog.

With the increasing ease and ubiquity of connecting to and ordering items over the Internet, we at Nordic Folklore feel that we can serve our customers best by expanding and improving on our online catalog. Please bookmark our site and tell your friends about us. We are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and we ship worldwide.

Can you give me some information concerning a certain painting?

When viewing the details of a certain artwork, we often include information about the original work. This information is accumulated over an extended period of time, and we welcome any remarks or suggestions regarding the background, history, facts, interpretation or context of any artwork which is featured in the Nordic Folklore database. Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to answer all of the art history questions which you may have. If you would like to know more about certain artwork, you may email us and we will attempt to answer your query.

What is the size, resolution and quality of your prints?

All of the images which you see on the Nordic Folklore web site are intended merely as elements within a catalog. The images have been down-sampled to a relatively small size and low resolution and are given both visible and invisible digital watermarks, in order to comply with copyright and licensing agreements. These watermarks do not appear anywhere on the final product.

Note that prints sold are not exactly as shown — we cannot guarantee that the colors shown on your monitor will properly represent the print, as each computer monitor is calibrated differently. Also, the digital scans and photographs used to display the items on our site may suffer from distortion or color alteration — we do our best to use high quality images, but if in doubt we encourage you to contact us for clarification.

Size information provided is an approximation only, exact dimensions may vary. Prints may include borders that are not shown in the online image. If you are framing your prints yourself, we strongly recommend that you wait until you have received your prints before measuring or purchasing any framing materials. If you receive an item that varies drastically from the preview shown online, please let us know and we will do our best to assist you.

Can I license any of these images from you, and feature them in my own works or publications?

Nordic Folklore cannot grant any kind of licensing arrangement for the use of the images featured on its site. All artworks are protected by international copyright laws.

Can I get prints in different sizes from those I see online?

If you have a particular size in mind or frame you are trying to utilize, contact us here with the name of the print and the dimensions you are looking for and we will try and find something to suit your needs.
