Can I send Sid something to autograph for me?
While Sid is flattered to be the recipient of such requests, he is at an age
where he prefers to spend time with his grandkids and tending his farm. So,
Sid has teamed up with the Valor Studios company to have them handle a line
of products for him, so his autograph will be available to the public but
without complication to his life.
Due to this arrangement, the public is urged not to send packages/letters
to Sid containing items for him to sign, since these will not be returned.

Can I visit Sid sometime?
At age 90 Sid cannot accommodate visitors who show up on his doorstep,
so we ask that his privacy be respected. BACK TO TOP
Can I give Sid a call?
Due to hearing loss from his service as a mortarman during WWII, Sid avoids
use of the phone whenever possible. To help answer any questions that you
would want to ask Sid by phone, he has posted answers to his most frequently
asked questions in "The Gallery" section of this website.
In the future, we
will have an “Ask Sid” section of this site where Sid will answer
10 of your questions per month and will post the results. BACK
How is my print/book/photo shipped?
Prints are shipped carefully rolled in a strong tube. Books are shipped carefully
wrapped in bubble wrap and boxed. Photos are shipped in a hard, flat cardboard
envelope. All items are shipped via the US Postal Service with full insurance
equal to their retail price. BACK
How fast will my order arrive?
Because delivery times vary by destination, for domestic orders please allow
up to three weeks for receipt of your item. International orders will take
longer. For specialized shipping instructions, please contact us by email.
Are the autographs on your items hand-signed?
Each store item, produced by Valor Studios, is hand-signed by Marine Sid Phillips.
Art prints are signed in pencil while books & photos are signed in pen/marker.

What happens if an item is damaged in transit to me?
Shipping damage seldom occurs. However, if an item is damaged in transit,
we will help the buyer file an insurance claim with the USPS. In the unlikely
event that this is necessary, we ask that the buyer notify us of any shipping
damage within five days after he/she receives a shipment. BACK
Do you accept returns and refunds or exchanges?
Since our high-quality products match our straightforward product descriptions,
we do not allow returns, refunds, or exchanges for products unless a wrong
item has been shipped. If there are any questions concerning a product please
contact us before purchasing. BACK TO TOP
