Shipping rates are based on the total weight of items currently in your cart. For wallpaper, fan decks, wallpaper samples, and sample jars fixed shipping costs will be applied.

How is my order going to be delivered?

Small orders like fan decks or sample jars will be delivered via USPS.  Larger orders are delivered via UPS Ground.  

How long will my order take to arrive? Are there lead times for some products?

It varies.  Most orders will be dispatched within 2 business days. This would include time for the order to be processed, tinted if necessary, packed and shipped.

Allow 2-4 weeks for delivery of wallpaper.  

What if no one is home to receive my order?

If there is no one home when the goods are delivered, your order may be left on your doorstep. No liability will be accepted by Porter's Original Paints/Sydney Harbour Paint Company or our carrier if the goods are removed or stolen.

What if I don't like the color I chose?

Always choose colors from the hand painted samples in our fan decks or order a sample jar to check the color prior to placing a large order for paint. Computer screens do not accurately represent colors and should be used as a guide only.

We do not refund or exchange tinted paint. Customer is responsible to check that color is correct before application.
