UPS policies to take note of:
*** Please note that any orders over $200 are subject to a brokerage fee as designated by UPS. The tiles are duty free under NAFTA,
unless they are installed in a frame in which they become "art work" . Most of the time, customs does not charge any fee for this, it
goes through without much notice.

Any customs brokerage charges designated by the US customs are not covered in the shipping costs.
UPS does not offer any insurance for loss or damage on shipped items that are porcelain or ceramic/glass in nature.  Therefore the
orders are packaged very well, with as much protection as is necessary to ship across North America and to Europe.

If you would like to purchase tiles, please check first with our Galleries & Showrooms. If you are not in the locale of these galleries
(25 miles-), then please feel free to order from us directly.

We ship throughout North America, as well as to France and England, Italy to Australia.
Colour variation and the hand pressed "look" of the tile (in its edges and thickness) is an inherent part of the tile design and is desired.
The tiles are all hand crafted, and therefore, have variation in edge, size, shape and colour.

All tiles will craze (crackle) over time.  Each tile is unique. For any questions regarding this, please ask before ordering.

If you are ordering tiles to match pre-existing ones, please order samples first.

Samples & Colour:
Our samples are business card sized tiles with Verdant Tile impressed in it.
If you are ordering and unsure of the colour of the tiles or sizes, before placing a large order please ask for a sample tile. The sample
tile is the cost of the postage/delivery.
