Shipping

Dear valued clients,

Ensuring the safe delivery of your cherished artworks is a top priority. Here’s a glimpse into how I meticulously package your paintings before they embark on their journey to your doorstep:

Packaging Process

1. Protective Layers:

  • Your artwork is delicately wrapped in glassine paper, a smooth and acid-free material that shields it from dust and smudges.

2. Extra Barrier:

  • We add an extra layer of protection using archival-quality plastic wrap. This clear film guards against moisture and provides an additional shield against accidental scratches.

3. Corner Support:

  • Cardboard corner protectors are carefully applied to each corner of your painting, ensuring the corners are protected during transit.

4. Bubble Wrap Embrace:

  • A generous layer of bubble wrap hugs your artwork, providing secure padding. Special attention is given to the corners and edges, where the artwork is most susceptible to impact.

5. Wooden Box Encasement:

  • After wrapping, your artwork is placed within a custom wooden box designed for secure transportation. This wooden encasement adds an extra layer of protection, ensuring your artwork is safeguarded during the entire journey.

6. Securing and Labeling:

  • The wooden box is securely sealed and labeled with your shipping address, contact details, and any special handling instructions. A “fragile” label is added to prompt careful handling.

7. Outer Box Protection:

  • The wooden-encased artwork is then placed into a robust outer box. Adequate padding, such as packing peanuts or additional bubble wrap, ensures stability within the box.

8. Final Seal:

  • The outer box is sealed with robust packaging tape, and we double-check that all seams are secure. It is then labeled with shipping information, and a “fragile” designation is emphasized.

9. Peace of Mind:

  • To provide added peace of mind, we offer the option to purchase insurance for the shipment. Additionally, you’ll receive a tracking number to follow your artwork’s journey until it reaches your doorstep.

Shipping Process

1. Shipping Coordination:

  • Once your artwork is securely encased in its protective packaging, we coordinate with reputable courier services to ensure a reliable and timely delivery.
 

2. Documentation and Tracking:

  • We meticulously prepare all necessary shipping documentation. You will receive a shipping confirmation email containing a tracking number, allowing you to monitor the journey of your artwork from our studio to your doorstep.
 

3. Wooden Box Security:

  • For paintings encased in a wooden box, special attention is given to the sturdiness of the box. This ensures that your artwork remains securely protected throughout its journey.
 

4. Handling and Care:

  • We emphasize to our shipping partners the fragile nature of the package. Special handling instructions are provided to ensure that your artwork receives the care it deserves during transit.
 

5. Customs and Fees:

  • While the price of shipping is included in your purchase, please be aware that any customs duties, taxes, or additional fees incurred outside of shipping are the responsibility of the client. We provide assistance and information to help facilitate a smooth customs clearance process.
 

6. Regular Updates:

  • Throughout the shipping process, we provide regular updates on the status of your artwork. Our aim is to keep you informed and reassured as your piece makes its way to you.
 

7. Arrival Notification:

  • Once your artwork arrives at its destination, you will receive a notification. We encourage you to inspect the package upon arrival to ensure that your artwork has reached you in impeccable condition.

Rest assured, your artwork is handled with the utmost care at every step of the packaging process.

If you have any questions or specific requests, feel free to reach out.

Your satisfaction is our priority.
