We divide all revenue from prints sold at events and on our website as follows:
- 50% to the non-profit partner you select at checkout
- 25% to the photographer
- 25% to Nuru Project
All printing costs are borne by Nuru Project. This means a full 50% goes to the non-profit and a full 25% goes to the photographer.
How do I frame my print?
Nuru Project doesn't offer framing (yet). To save money, pair a ready-made frame made of black solid wood with a custom mat cut to your image's particular dimensions, UV protected plexiglass and a white archival mat.
Can I deduct my print purchase from my taxes as a charitable donation?
Our understanding of US tax code is that you can only deduct the portion of the price of goods purchased for charity for which you overpaid. In other words, if you buy a $100 item in support of charity that is really only worth $50, the $50 you overpaid would be eligible for deduction. Since Nuru Project prides itself on offering prints affordably, often times more affordably than our photographers price their own prints, Nuru Project prints do not appear to offer a tax deduction, even though we donate half the purchase price to non-profits. But you should consult a tax professional when filling out your taxes.
What comes in the envelope when I order a print?
You can read all about it here.
Limited editioning is about creating scarcity.
We believe the true spirit of photojournalism is to tell a story far and wide to an audience passionate about social change. As such, Nuru Project does not limit the quantity of prints we sell for a given image.
Just the opposite: we celebrate volume. The more copies a print sells, the more impact it has on a cause. We pair volume with moderate prices, allowing us to reach a wide audience and raise more money for causes.
Volume = Impact
We do, however, number prints. This is called an Open Edition.
Our goal at Nuru Project is to ensure complete satisfaction with your purchase.
If something is wrong with your purchase, please send us an email so that we can assess your situation and correct the problem. All return inquiries should be sent to email@example.com with your transaction number in the subject line.
Inquiries about returns must be made within 14 days of receiving your order, so please inspect your prints carefully upon arrival.
You can read our entire return policy here.
We inspect every print before shipping and take great care to package them safely.Very seldom do our prints arrive with shipping damage or printing flaws.
If a print does arrive damaged or flawed, we will replace your print.
Simply take a digital snapshot of the damaged print email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘Damaged Print - [transaction number]’.
Our checkout system is still young. If there is enough demand for other options, we'll add them.
Let us know what payment method you prefer and why - email@example.com.
Each Nuru Project print comes with a numbered Label of Authenticity with the artist’s printed signature.
We recommend having your framer apply the label to your print.
All prints are shipped in protective sleeves. Prints up to 11"x14" come in sturdy cardboard envelopes. Prints larger than 11"x14" come in tubes.
We won’t ever sell or share your personal information.
We work with professional printers to make archival, exhibition-quality digital C prints.
Digital-C prints are made with real light-sensitive photographic paper. These are not inkjet prints.
If you’re as excited about storytelling as we are, you’ll love our newsletter.
It's the best place to hear our photographers describe the stories behind their prints or hear what excites us about an image.
The newsletter also announces sales and has news about upcoming live Nuru Project events near you.
We’re so sure you’ll like it, we automatically subscribe all print purchasers. If you haven’t bought a print, you can sign up on our homepage.
We work hard to make sure the images you see online match our final prints.
However, this is a difficult task with many variables including the difference between the tonal range of paper and that of your monitor, the fact that many customers do not have calibrated monitors, and the effect that a white border has on customers’ perception of color.
Never touch the surface of your print. Hands are dirty and can scratch the surface or harm the pigment.
We recommended you frame your print. Your work will be protected and it will be on display!
Detailed instructions on how to care for your print are enclosed in your package.
