Prices are in US dollars.
Are payments secure on TouchPhotography?
We take security very seriously. All of your payments are processed

never receives your credit card information. You don't need to register
with Paypal to process your payment.
Do you offer refunds?
For stock photos, once your purchase is made we cannot offer a refund. The reason for this policy is because we offer full access to our entire digital collection of photos and, as such, there is no way for our products to be returned. On a rare occasion we will make exceptions on a case by case basis. For posters, refunds are possible with proof of damaged prints.
Why does it take longer to ship to Canada?
Our professional printing lab is in the US and since 9/11 customs are more diligent. Once your order is processed, please allow up to 3 weeks to receive your posters (the average is usually 2 weeks).

There's a big TOUCHPHOTOGRAPHY in the center of each image on the Website. Will this show on my purchased product?
No. This is simply a watermark to protect the images from being illegally copied.
