How to buy art from us
At The Biscuit Factory we make art accessible to everyone. As a member of the Own Art Scheme (backed by Arts Council England), there is a 0% finance option for all our UK customers, for many of the artworks we sell. Spread the cost of the art you love over 10 months. This can be done in the gallery by speaking to a member of our team or you can now purchase art directly from our website using Pay by Finance option*.

Delivery & Installation
The Biscuit Factory offers a range of options for the safe delivery of your artwork, both nationally and internationally. Quotes are available upon request for standard and insured fine art courier options. Please contact the gallery on 0191 261 1103 or on firstname.lastname@example.org for specific delivery costs.
Many of our artists work to commission to create something truly bespoke. Provide us with your specific requests and we'll co-ordinate with your chosen artist and support you through every step of the commissioning process.
Clients are required to pay a non-refundable 25% deposit before work commences with the remaining 75% payable on completion of the artwork. Due to the bespoke nature of commissioning work, should a client decide they do not wish to purchase the completed artwork; the gallery will retain the artwork and the 25% deposit.
Want to reserve a piece or secure work which is in high demand? We want you to be completely happy with your purchase, which is why we offer you 7 days to consider your choice.
By paying a deposit you are demonstrating your intention to purchase work but of course are under no obligation to proceed with the purchase should you change your mind. For this flexibility we require a 10% non refundable deposit to hold a piece for a maximum of 7 days from the date the deposit is made.
Within the 7 days, we ask that you notify us of how you would like to proceed. If we do not hear from you within that time, we will assume that you no longer wish to proceed with the purchase (although we will make reasonable efforts to contact you) and at the end of the 7 days the piece(s) will be taken off hold and will be made available again to purchase.
Can't make it in to our gallery or want piece of mind first? A member of our team can hand deliver your chosen pieces of artwork any day of the week up until 8pm and offer expert curatorial advice to maximise its true worth to you, all with no cost or obligation. Plus, with our 7 day refund policy still applicable - live with the artwork for a week before coming to a final decision. T&Cs apply.
We offer a 7 days cooling off period, so if for whatever reason that piece of work is not for you, then return the piece to the gallery in its original state within 7 days of purchase, a full refund will be given. Please note that this is not available for commissioned works or pierced jewellery.
Exchanges & Credit Notes
We offer an exchange or credit note up to 30 days from the date of purchase. Please note that this is not available for commissioned works, pieces that are specially ordered into the gallery prior to purchase or pierced jewellery.
