What is your return policy?
It is really important to us for you to LOVE your
print or your design product; we have gone to great detail in our product
descriptions and visual examples so our customers will know exactly what to
expect when receiving one of our products, and will be happy when it arrives.
Our Fine Art Prints and Canvases and any Custom Framing are all made-to-order, as
are all our Apparel, Homeware and Jigsaws, therefore we do not accept returns. No
refunds are given if you change your mind!
What happens if my print/frame is damaged?
If a Print or Frame is damaged during the delivery
process, please take photographs of the damaged packaging and any damage to the
product and email us at email@example.com with details of the damage. If
you notice the packaging is damaged on arrival, take photographs BEFORE you
open the package, hopefully the product is well protected and any internal
damage will not have occurred. If your product IS damaged we will arrange for
the product to be collected and returned to our supplier and the damage
assessed. Once the product damage has been checked, a new product will be
manufactured and shipped out to you. Of course we do our utmost to package our
product with the most solid and protective packaging we can, so that damage is
a very limited occurrence.
What happens if I, or my framer damage the print?
We will help you out, nothing ever gets damaged on
purpose, we understand this! All we ask is that you are honest with us and we
will work with you to sort out a resolution. We won’t be able to replace the
print free of charge, but we will do our best to replace the print at the
lowest cost possible to you and/or your framer.
FINE ART PRINTS ARE VERY DELICATE! Rachael
cannot express strongly enough that you take your print directly to your framer
and let them unpackage it! If you do wish to open your print yourself, please
use gloves to handle your print and do so with extreme care. We cannot
replace prints free of charge due to mishandling. Oils from your fingertips
will mark your prints and it is very easy to kink your print when trying to re
roll it and place it back in the tube it was sent in. Rachael’s images of Black
animals on Black backgrounds are even more delicate, these prints will mark
even more easily…..Rachael actually recommends purchasing these images framed and
ready to hang whenever possible
to limit the amount of handling, or get the prints sent straight to your framer
to reduce any chance of damage due to mis handling.

Store has been captured by Rachael McKenna (nee Hale) The images are either
from her personal collection, or from the collection of images created for the
numerous books she has published over the years.
Are Rachael McKenna and Rachael Hale the same
Yes! Rachael Hale and Rachael McKenna ARE indeed
the same person! In 2007 Rachael made a difficult decision to discontinue
creating images for the RACHAEL HALE brand, she was keen to pursue her passion
for creating images of animals in their natural environments. In 2009 after marrying
her husband Andrew Mckenna, Rachael decided to publish her next books using her
married name Rachael McKenna and following on, use her married name for her
ongoing photographic commissions. A couple of years ago, the RACHAEL HALE brand
was purchased by an American company and Rachael has now started creating
images once again for the RACHAEL HALE brand. To check out Rachael’s current

Photographic Papers. They feature a smooth surface texture with unparalleled
depth, subtlety of tonal variation and shadow detail. The paper is light
sensitive and has a very long life.

smooth material is pliable and ideally suited for stretcher frame systems.

12x16 inches = 30x40 cm

24x30 inches = 61x76 cm
30x40 inches = 76x101 cm
Do the Colours/Tones of the Actual Print match the
images we see online?
Rachael has supplied all her distributors with
quality checked printed samples of all the images available for purchase on the
Rachael McKenna Print Store. Each supplier guarantees that the product they
send out matches the product they have on file. However, as everyone’s computer
monitors have different settings, we cannot guarantee the colours and tones you
see on your screen are 100% accurate. Rest assured that the finished product
you receive is the correct colour tones that Rachael purposely captured when
creating her images, and we believe the finished product always looks far
better in person and up on your wall than on your computer screen.
Do you offer Framing?
Yes we offer Framing on all product we have for
sale. Framing is a custom item and available
on request. All Framing details are listed under the Framing section in the ‘Product Info’ section on the
website Menu. Some framing options are not available in certain countries so
there are varying product options available for different countries, so please

each individual product on the respective product pages, they are also listed
in the sizing guidein the Product Info drop down of the Main Menu. If
you are really struggling, feel free to get in touchand we will endeavour to assist.
How do I wash my Apparel garments?
We suggest you turn your garment inside out to wash
and always wash on a cold cycle. Wash with similar colours. There will be a
minor amount of shrinkage after your first wash, this is standard with any 100%
cotton item. You can tumble dry your items but we highly recommend to air dry
them to reduce the risk of any shrinkage. ALWAYS iron your garment on the wrong
side, never iron directly onto the design…..or be like us, let your garment dry
naturally on a hanger and you won’t need to use the iron!
Why do you print on demand?
Each print we create, or product we produce are all
custom made, printed on demand. We live in a world that is rapidly
deteriorating so we are trying to do what we can to help make this world a
better place. By producing custom orders we are considerably reducing the risk
of waste and minimising the chance of producing product that potentially gets
returned. Help us make a difference to the world we live in.
What packaging do you use?
All of our Apparel and Homeware products are
shipped in eco-friendly plastic free packaging, and our Prints and Canvases
plus our Jigsaws are all shipped using cardboard tubes or boxes. Everything is
well packaged, we take the utmost care to get your product to you in a fast
well protected manner, so it arrives in one piece safely to your door.
How is your Apparel produced?
All of our Henry & George Apparel items are
produced on demand using DTG, this eliminates waste that is commonly caused by
over production in the fashion and apparel industry. The materials used are
either 100% Organic or a mix of 85% Organic Cotton with 15% recycled polyester.
There are no pesticides, insecticides or GMOs in
the production of any of the materials used to create our products, everything
is environmentally friendly and organic. The Henry & George images are
printed on our textiles using water-based inks that are 100% eco-certified by OEKO-TEX® ECO PASSPORTand
