Shipping your Art carefully is a very important to me, whether it be an original piece or a print. Therefore I use the following procedure when packaging and shipping your artwork.
Large pieces and prints each have different shipping methods. To learn more please contact me and I will let you know how I ship those pieces. You can also read my shipping procedures guide here.
For originals works and limited edition prints, shipping rates are based on courier fees determined by the shipping addresses of the collector, as well as the measurements and weight of the artwork.
For open edition prints, the shipping fees are determined based on the print size, print type (canvas, photo paper, fine art paper, etc.), whether it is framed or unframed, and courier fees based on the buyer’s destination.
At this time, the only way to determine shipping rates is to begin the ordering process by adding the artwork(s) to your cart and then entering your shipping address so that the rates can be calculated. Your shipping costs automatically populate on the final payment page, breaking down shipping, customs (if any), and tax fees (see image below). From there, you may choose to purchase the work or cancel the transaction.
How shipping costs are calculated
There are several factors used to assess total shipping costs for a work, including:
- Weight and dimensions of the work*
- The buyer’s location (for originals and prints)
- The artist’s location (for originals shipped directly from the artist to the buyer)
*The type of packaging materials can factor into the weight and dimensions of the parcel. A large work, for example, may require a wooden crate, which costs substantially more than a cardboard box.
Please note that I work on your behalf to provide competitive shipping rates and amazing service.
