Some of these tips may be like, “Duh…” but even the best of us forget things at times.
TIP #1 -Double-check drying times
Some types of paint seem dry when they’re not. Always check drying times and make sure that your painting is completely dry before shipping it.
Tip #2 – Rolled or framed?
You may save on shipping costs if you ship rolled artwork to a framer or art handler to be stretched and framed at the destination.
Tip #3 – No fingerprints, please.
If you’re shipping mounted photography or other high-gloss art, wear dustless nitrile or cotton art handling gloves to prevent fingerprints or other smudges.
Tip #4 – Know the size restrictions
Many of the common carriers, including UPS, FedEx, and the US Postal Service have size restrictions. Before you add estimated shipping charges to products in your Shop check the carrier restrictions, especially if it’s a large and/or heavy piece.
EC will not go back to a client requesting more money for shipping.
Tip #5 – Add special care
Including care instructions to your package if your art needs special attention or specific handling when installing is very important so take the time to print out special details for your buyer.
