Shipping of an artwork meaning techniques and care Advantages of Framed Paintings for Art Lovers

Shipping and handling charges is a common term which we see on art sites. Whenever you buy a painting do consider  the shipping costs which will be added with the total cost of paintings. Shipping costs are the costs incurred by the artist for packing and sending paintings to the art buyers destination. Usually the charges come for using packing materials and sending services, courier or postal delivery charges.
Every art site mentions additional shipping charges added to the total value  of the painting. This depends upon the destination the artwork is going to be shipped which is usually less within the country and more when sending to other countries to art collectors and art lovers. 
Packing of a painting is very important  as the buyer receives the artwork in good condition is very important. The paintings made of canvas or paper are packed differently. Framed paper work have galss which is very fragile and need great care while packing. As also canvas paintings need the care as they may get scratched or torn while transporting.
Tips for packing paper paintings-
Make sure  the paintings  are well dried before shipping. Otherwise the covering packing material will stick to the artwork and when removing the packing the painting may get damaged. Cover the  painting with clean paper on both sides. Use  thick  water proof paper  for  protecting the painting done on paper. In case of thick paint or  mixed media works consider the layer added to protect the artwork from getting abrased  or damaged.

Packing of  canvas paintings-
Boxes made of wood are required to pack wooden framed paintings. Consider finding a good carpenter to get customized boxes for packing as this has to be sturdy , big sized paintings farmed in wood do weigh a lot ! 
Many new  art buyers and  art lovers do like  to buy paintings ready to hang as  some art buyers do not have the resources to contact frame maker  and also the time  required for this. and it is also a fact  as  we artist know that making a single   frame costs much more and you get concession of you frame many paintings at a time. It is also important that you choose the right frame to bring out the best in the artwork.  The color of mountings chosen and the size of the mounting  all affect the appearance of your artwork.
When ordering or  buying paintings from any artist do inquire the price with or without frames. As  usually  the mentioned prices are without frames.

There are also other options for packing canvas paintings that are not framed. Tubular packing are available  for packing rolled canvasses. While rolling a canvas painting cover the painting with a layer of soft cloth , if required cover with bubble wrap to protect the layer of paint on the painting. 
When the painting has to be shipped in your own country the same care will be needed. While sending paintings over seas to different countries to art lovers it is important to protect and care for the artworks so that they reach the art lover collector  in good condition.  The artist has to make sure  about the right correct address of the art lover and always have contact number and destination address clear.
