How Will My Portrait Be Packaged?

Below you will find out how I wrap up portrait’s for shipping & the gift presentation packaging option.

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 5mm foamboard for extra strength to keep it from bending & for it’s light weight to keep shipping costs down.

All portrait size options come with a shipping fee of £10.00 (United Kingdom) or £15.00 – £50.00 (International). Portraits are placed in a plastic sleeve with a sheet of glassine paper to protect it. This is then wrapped in brown parcel paper with backing card to keep it from bending. The wrapped package is then placed in either a hard-backed envelope with extra cardboard to further ensure no bending during transit or for larger portraits, your artwork will be placed between cardboard / foam board & bubble wrap, then placed 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. A thoughtful touch for special occasions & present giving!

With this option, portraits are carefully placed in a plastic sleeve with a sheet of glassine paper to protect it. This is then attached to black card and wrapped in white tissue paper which sits beautifully in a thin presentation box. Paired with unwrapping neatly placed ribbon’s and stickers, receiving & opening the portrait this way is great for any special 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 70x100cm (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)
