Trophies coming from outside of the U.S.

Trophies coming from outside of the U.S. will be imported through Coppersmith, who will contact you directly once they receive them. You will pay them for their services and then they will expedite the trophies to us. Coppersmith will also assist you with CITES and other import/export paperwork.

Once Animal Artistry, Inc. receives your trophies

Stewart Brown will receive in your trophies and do an inventory. He will then contact you that your trophies are at Animal Artistry and discuss your trophies and pose instructions and finalize your order. Use the pose book on this website to help with mounting ideas.

Deposit and payment

From there, we will send via email, mail or fax a deposit invoice, for 50% of the charges accompanied by a hold/harmless agreement. The deposit is non-refundable. The Hold Harmless is a standard agreement that we keep on file for every client. This needs be signed and returned with your 50% deposit and from the time that we receive those 2 things (along with your pose instructions), your 90 day turn around to completion will begin (Crocodiles and Alligators are the exception)! Once your trophies are nearing completion, we will send you a final invoice for the remaining balance on your order. The invoice gives you contact information for arranging shipment. Final payment is due within 10 days and must be received before shipping is scheduled.

Delivering your trophies

From there, you can select the shipping method that you prefer (or get Stewart Brown’s recommendation) and arrange for delivery with Stewart Brown.
