When will my art be shipped once I buy the artwork?
If the artist is from the US, you can expect the art to arrive in 6 to 7 business days. In case you want to return it, please let us know within 3 business days and if you return the artwork undamaged, you’ll receive the refund Mishkalo credit that you can use to buy anything else. At your request we can also add an estimated shipping price to the price of art when listed in your registry.
If your artist is from outside the US, depending on where they from, it may take 12 to 15 business days.
We also give the option for wedding couples to select a timeframe for delivery in order to accommodate their honeymoon travels after their wedding.
Who pays for shipping?

We give you the option of listing (a) only the price of the artwork you chose for your registry or the option of listing ths price plus the cost of shipping.
You can also pay for shipping from any left over cash in your registry.
Sometimes, we may run promotions that may offer free shipping.
What if I really want to buy an artwork and don’t want to lose it to another buyer while my guests pay for it?
Couples have the option of buying any art by paying for it (either with their own money, or paying the difference between the price of the artwork and what is currently in their registry). If you are ready to make a purchase just call us at 312-521-0589 or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will facilitate the purchase and the shipping from the artist.
Mishkalo will continue to keep your registry alive until the date of your wedding and refund you any cash that is subsequently contributed by your guests until the date of your wedding.
How to use the registry
This FAQ provides information about how the registry works and how to use it.
What happens to any left over cash in my registry?
Mishkalo will issue a gift card for the remaining amount left in your registry for future purchases. The reason we cannot offer you a refund in cash is that the money has been paid for by your guests on a certain pretext. Therefore, we want to honor our original commitment to your guests and not turn Mishkalo into a cash collection registry.
What happens if I win a prize or registry giveaway?
Congratulations! if you won a registry giveaway, the prize is valid only if you create a proper registry with Mishkalo, upload a photo of yours and select at least one piece of artwork in your registry. The prize money is valid for up to 60 days after your wedding date. If you do not use the money to purchase art then the prize money will be forfeited.
