Order Information: Shipping, Delivery & Returns

Additional information about ordering can be found on the Order Information page.


I would love to send every deck by magic carpet. However, this may prove tricky, as my skills at operating the carpet are what the pros would refer to as: “a complete novice, unlikely to improve in the near future”.

If your order needs any form of transportation to reach your destination, we need to deal with the non-magic-carpet transport authorities & shipping services provided by Australia Post. Great care is taken to ensure your order arrives safely; along with secure wrapping and packaging before lodging over the counter with Australia Post.

When you place an order on the Site, you are responsible for providing correct address details for shipping purposes. Nine Lives Art cannot be held responsible for shipping delays arising from incomplete or incorrect address information being provided.

Delivery Times

Naturally, you will want your order to arrive as soon as possible – that is understandable. Luckily, shipping times today are quite fast when compared to the days of sailing ships, however, current restrictions and delays brought on by COVID may result in extended delivery times. Please check any restrictions for your area before placing an order.
Estimated delivery times vary depending on where you live and the shipping method you select. Extended delivery times may occur during holiday season, so please be patient. If your order hasn’t arrived after 4 weeks, please contact me and I will do what I can to help you locate it.

Delivery Responsibilities & Conditions

Nine Lives Art is unable to accept responsibility for the delivery of orders shipped without tracking International Letter (no tracking), Domestic Letter (no tracking), or Economy Air (currently suspended). By choosing either of these delivery methods you are accepting all responsibility should your parcel get lost. However, in the unlikely event that your order doesn’t arrive, please contact me and I will do what I can to help you locate it.

International buyers

Please note that import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer’s responsibility. While unlikely that your order would incur additional charges, I unfortunately not guarantee this as countries have different regulations. If you are unsure, please check with your local customs office.

Warranty & Returns policy

Damaged on Arrival

Naturally, your order should arrive in perfect condition. If your parcel for some reason takes a detour across the globe and arrives at your destination in a damaged state, please contact me straight away and I will provide you with instructions for replacement.

Cancelling an Order

Your cat completed the order for you while you were sleeping … Despite your cat being very clever, you unfortunately need to cancel the order, or you won’t have enough money left to buy (cat)food: Oh, what to do …? Don’t worry, I completely understand: Simply contact me straight away, and I will cancel the order and arrange a full refund.
If your order has already been shipped, you may choose to return the package in its original condition (unopened) and I will provide you with instructions for return and refund, please note that you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item.

Change of Mind

Unfortunately, Nine Lives Art cannot accept returns for a deck which has been opened and handled, as it can no longer be considered new. To avoid any disappointment, please make sure you read the description and view product images available on the Site, before making your purchase.


If you wish to return an unopened deck in original condition, please contact me within 14 days of receiving your order and I will provide you with instructions for return and refund, please note that you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item.
