Are digital versions available?
No. And there are no exceptions.
What are your shipping rates and times?
United States (USPS)
|International *||$15.00||2-4 weeks|
* Price is per shipment. Depending on the country and the size of your order, you may be charged additional fees for customs/duty by your local delivery company. The customer is responsible for these fees.
What is your return policy?
I will send a free replacement or issue a refund if:
- you received the wrong item(s)
- your item(s) arrived damaged
- your item(s) have not arrived after 30 days (US/Canada) or 60 days (international)
There is no need to return the wrong or damaged item. Please send a request to email@example.com along with photos of the damage (if applicable).
Do you offer discounts?
Yes. If you buy any 3 or more charts (separate titles or multiples), you will automatically receive 30% off your entire order. That works out to be less than $14 per chart. If the code does not automatically appear after clicking checkout, you can also enter it manually as "SAVE30".
A higher discount ($10 per chart) will automatically be applied to schools, resellers, homeschool groups, or anyone else placing an order of 12 or more charts. If you'd prefer to use a purchase order, email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you accept PayPal or Bitcoin?
My store is set up to accept credit cards only but if you do not have one and/or would just really, really like to use PayPal instead, email me at email@example.com and I will send you a Paypal invoice.
I now also accept Bitcoin. Email me and I'll send you a payment address. The amount will be based on the daily exchange rate.

Can I buy through Amazon, Etsy, etc.?
Yes. My charts are also available on Amazon and are eligible for Prime. However, be careful of fake sellers who sometimes list my products at astronomical prices. Always click "See All Buying Options" and look for "UsefulCharts" under Seller Information.
I also have an Etsy shop.
My products sometimes appear on Ebay and non-US Amazon sites through third-party sellers. Search by product name to check prices and availability.
Who designs the charts?
See the About page.
What new charts might we see soon?

LibreOffice Draw on Linux.
Where are the wallcharts printed?
All of my wallcharts are printed by MET Fine Printers in Vancouver, BC, Canada. MET is a leading eco-friendly printer that operates a carbon-neutral facility and uses only UV inks.
Any comments about legal stuff?
Yes. First of all, you should know that each wallchart that is sold on this website is copyrighted by UsefulCharts Publishing and should therefore not be duplicated and/or redistributed via any means, physical or electronic, without direct permission from the owner, Matt Baker.
Second, when it comes to the individual images used within my wallcharts, I would like to state that I have made every effort to only use images that are either in the public domain or that are available via a Creative Commons license. In the latter case, I provide attributions when required. If I have unknowingly used your image without permission or proper attribution, please let me know asap at email@example.com.
Third, please note that the charts that I make for the blog section of this website do sometimes contain individual images that are copyrighted by others (e.g. - pictures of actors from TV shows). These individual images are used under the doctrine of the fair use and because of the copyright associated with them, I am unable to sell printed versions of those charts. No exceptions.
