To be as eco friendly as possible while still ensuring your artwork arrives safely to you, I aim for as much of my packaging materials to either be recyclable or made from recycled materials. Larger portraits will require lightweight foamboard for extra strength to further ensure it does not bend during transit.
Included in the cost of purchase, portraits are first protected with a sheet of glassine paper & then wrapped in tissue paper or placed in a plastic sleeve. Next, I will use brown parcel paper to neatly keep it together with backing card / foamboard to keep it from bending. The wrapped package is then typically placed in bubble wrap and safely enclosed in a custom-sized cardboard box. All portrait’s come with an envelope containing hand-written thank you note, along with artwork care guides, a certificate of authenticity, 10% off next order voucher & other promotional pieces.
Gift Wrapped Presentation Option
For an additional cost, you may wish to request your portrait to be sent in a gift-wrapped presentation box. This is a great option if you are formally gifting your portrait and would love to make a lasting first impression to the recipient.
With this option, portraits are neatly placed with ribbons & sit in a thin presentation box. Receiving & opening the portrait this way is perfect for any gift giving occasion!
Presentation gift boxes come in 3 different sizes:
+ £20 Small – For sizes up to 30x40cm
+ £30 Medium – For sizes up to 40x60cm
For sizes up to 70x95cm (Presentation boxes unavailable at this size but you may request tissue paper & ribbon decorations free of charge)
Please note, the prices above do not also include the cost of shipping which remains £10.00 (United Kingdom) or £15.00 – £50.00 (International)
