In addition to the postage fee charged by Valor Studios your postal service may charge an import/VAT tax depending on how your government handles products imported from the United States. Any customs duties or special taxes levied by individual countries or governments will be the sole responsibility of the purchaser. If there is a charge, it will be based on the package insurance value which we declare at full retail price.
We follow all US customs guidelines as outlined by the United States Postal Service so we will not declare items at less than their purchase price.
The cost to ship internationally has increased almost monthly. If you wish to explore less expensive shipping options please email and we will see what other options are available.

The print you buy from Valor Studios has been in some remarkable hands. During a signing, a typical print is passed from veteran to veteran, often a dozen or more times. The WWII veterans we work with are between 87 and 98 years of age. For their diminishing eyesight and dexterity that comes with age, they do remarkably good work.
Invariably during this handling process, a print will pick up minor “battle damage.” An occasional speckle, a lead dot, a dimple, a slight pencil smudge, sometimes a veteran will go to pass a print and leave a thumb print or an indentation.
Rest assured, we hand-inspect each print to make sure that these unique features (and they are unique!) do not impact the viewing quality of the art when it’s framed, nor will they affect the print’s value since “battle damage” is part of the process in adding so many historic signatures. If anything, this “battle damage” serves to authenticate that the signatures were hand signed and that your print was handled by some of the greatest heroes the United States has ever produced.
During Valor Studios' humble beginnings, we compensated our veteran signers by giving each several thousand dollars worth of prints and an all expenses paid reunion with their comrades.
In the ensuing years, as Valor Studios grew, we were finally able to pay the veterans for their efforts with a cash honorarium IN ADDITION to continuing their payment in art prints. In 2010 alone, Valor Studios put more than $100,000 in the hands of the veterans who sign our products!
For many of our signers, working with Valor Studios provides them with their only source of income outside of social security. Know that when you purchase an item from Valor Studios, you're not only supporting an all-American family business, but also the veterans who sign our products. This is why many of the veterans have been working with us over the course of a decade and still do so today.
|Valor Studios will appraise your collection for your home owner’s insurance policy for a $100 fee. This appraisal can only be conducted in the month of January and will be done on a print by print basis using the end of year values for our sold out prints. Please contact to start an appraisal.|
Valor Studios recommends that all hand signed items be displayed or stored using archival quality, acid free materials. When framing art/photographs/posters, we recommend locating a framer who is familiar with archival framing, has a storefront so you can see examples of their work, is not a big box framer, and has full insurance in the event an accident occurs while framing your item.
UV glass/acrylic and acid free framing materials must be used to protect the image and signatures. Fading can occur even if an item is not displayed in direct sunlight (even a light bulb omits UV rays) so UV protected glass/acrylic is necessary.
In order to retain full value of your item, your art or collectible should be able to be removed from its frame and still be in the same original condition as it was when purchased from Valor Studios.
If you decide to store one of our art prints/collectibles without getting it framed, then we recommend flat storage in either an acid free art sleeve or between pieces of acid free foam core. The item should be stored in a dark and dry location, several inches off the floor. We do not recommend storing prints/posters/photos in tubes for any extended length of time.
