It’s not unusual for a client to want a piece of art shipped, many of our customers are here on vacation. Most people take thier purchase with them after it has been wrapped in bubble wrap, clingfilm, fitted with cardboard corners and a cover for the face of the painting.
To ship a painting a custom box is made from plastic cellular board, it’s tougher than cardboard and water / spill resistant. I usually form a handle to make handling the art easier, and this gets a lot of compliments from the post office.
We send the packaged painting out by Canada Post, fully insured, and email you a tracking number. In North America rates are quite reasonable and delivery is never more than 10-11 days, 3 if it’s expedited. If the painting is remaining on Vancouver island we frequently use Tofino Bus / Island Coach Lines to deliver it same-day.
Terry Jackson porcelain ships exceptionally well. Terry has taken the time to have individualized boxes for each piece. They make great gifts and we get a lot of call for these as drop shipped gift items.
