Every painting that ships from the art studio is insured, even though I’m really anal about how it’s packaged! If your painting is created on paper or yupo paper, it will be slipped in between 2 acid free sheets of papers and then inserted into a cello/poly bag then placed into a rigid mailer and sent via insured USPS. I like to wrap every canvas painting in glassine and then place it either ‘box in box’ or between securely fastened sheets of cardboard or foam-core. Finally, then it will be bubble wrapped and placed into its sturdy shipping box and then sent either FEDEX or USPS insured. You’ll get an email confirmation with the tracking number once your painting is on its way to you.
Now, if you have a corporate account, or if you wish to use your own carrier account, no problem, contact me and we’ll arrange it! I only charge a nominal fee to cover the packaging materials and that’s it!
We’ve been shipping successfully over the past 10+ years and have a good track record, but, if a package were to arrive with obvious damage, just refuse it and then contact me.
Generally I like to box and ship for the next business day, however things do come up, so please allow 48 hours for your artwork to be shipped. We will send you the tracking number and a shipment confirmation once your carefully wrapped painting is on its way to you!
International Duties and Customs
Canadian collectors can now buy my original paintings here on the website! Yay! And while there is no duty tax on original paintings, you are responsible for the GST that may be incurred. For all other international sales, please contact me for a shipping quote. Again you are responsible for all duties and taxes on international sales. Please visit www.dutycalculator.com.
And finally, this studio respects the privacy of its collectors, we do not share, or sell any personal information. The only exception is when we share your mailing information with our shipping carrier so they can deliver your art.
Did I Miss Something?
Hope I’ve covered all the bases here and that any questions you had, have been answered. But if not, please contact me because maybe it’s a question someone else has too and I can add it here. Thank you so much.
