Local Pickup for Prints

When ordering prints from Old Town Print Gallery, you have the option to have the prints shipped to you or to pick them up from our studio. Our studio is located in Alexandria, Virginia, so if you are local to the area local pickup could be a great option for you. 

How to Pick up Directly From Our Studio 

Picking up your prints from our studio is simple! Just follow the steps below to pick up your prints.

Select Option at Checkout 

Once you’ve made your selections for what images and sizes you’d like prints of, head to checkout to start the process. You’ll need to select the local pickup option in the checkout process, rather than shipping.

Wait for Notice of Your Order Being Ready 

Our prints are made to order and are typically ready within 2-4 business days. Once they are ready you’ll receive an e-mail notification from Old Town Print Gallery letting you know that your order is ready to be picked up.

Stop by Our Studio

You don’t need an appointment to pick up your print order; you can simply stop by anytime during our regular business hours. Mondays we are open from 9am-5pm, Tuesday-Friday we are open from 9am-6pm, and on Saturdays we are open from 10am-5pm. Come on in and let us know that you are picking up a print order from Old Town Print Gallery. If you ordered paper prints we’ll give you a sturdy cardboard portfolio to get the prints home in to make sure they don’t get damaged on the way.


Advantages of Choosing Pickup 

If you live close enough to our studio to be able to come in and pick up your prints, there are a number of great reasons to do so! Of course, if it’s ever inconvenient, we can always ship your prints to you instead. Our prints are packed safely by professionals and will arrive to you safely. 

Get Your Prints Faster 

One major advantage of choosing local pickup is that you’ll get your prints faster! Without having to wait for shipping you can have your prints in your hands on the same day they are ready. If you’re shopping for last-minute gifts or simply can’t wait to get a print on your wall, local pickup ensures that you get your prints as quickly as possible.

Shipping Times Vary

While shipping estimates are generally  reliable, there can always be unforeseen snags that slow down shipping and cause delays. If you live nearby and are on a deadline to receive your prints, local pickup is the safest option. 

Save Money

Local pickup will of course save you money as well! Depending on the size of your prints, and whether they are on paper or canvas, shipping prices can vary greatly and can become quite pricey. Local pickup, on the other hand, is completely free! Regardless of the size of your prints, there is no cost to you when choosing local pickup.
