How do I chose a color?

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. The customer is responsible to check the color is correct before application. 

What if the color is not listed? 

If you would like to order a color from one of our archived fan decks chose "Archived Color" from the drop down menu.  At checkout enter the color name in the Order Comments section.

Do you create custom colors?

Yes! If you don't see a color that fits just right for your project we can always create a custom color of your very own! Please contact our showroom at 310-444-2882 to discuss and place your order. 

Do you have pricing for the trade?

We offer trade pricing to interior designers, architects, painters, contractors, etc.  Please email directly to setup your account. 

If you have a large commercial job please contact our architectural rep Mahana directly, 

How much does shipping cost?

Shipping rates are based on the total weight of items currently in your cart. For most sample items a fixed shipping cost will be applied.

How is my order going to be delivered?

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

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

It varies.  Most orders will be dispatched next day. 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 my order is received damaged? 

We make every effort to ensure all orders are carefully packaged.  We, however, cannot ensure the handling once it leaves our warehouse.  There is, at times, damages that may occur.  We must be notified within 24 hours of delivery in order for replacement goods to be re-sent free of charge. No such claims will be accepted after the 24 hours.
