How to send a picture to another city

Many artists, when selling their paintings, are faced with the issue of transferring the painting to the buyer. This applies to transmission over the Internet, well if the buyer lives nearby and there is a possibility of meeting him, but in most cases, when selling over the Internet, Your pictures will be ordered from different cities, and even if the buyer wants to buy a painting from delivery, many artists a little scary delivery itself, particularly if the picture size is large.

So how do I forward my work ?

The first thing You should pay attention to is the size of the work itself. A small-sized picture, for example, 30, 40 cm, can be framed and sent by mail. But what if the size of the canvas for example 140 by 90 cm

At the post office, the girl who will take such a parcel from You will probably tell You that Your parcel is a little larger than you need, although the picture may not weigh so much.

To be honest, I personally did not encounter this, or rather did not bring such large canvases, although you can send such a canvas through the Russian post.
And the secret of this focus of shipping, just in the packaging of the picture itself.

Usually paintings of large size are removed from the stretcher, carefully wrapped and put in a tube of the desired size, it is clear that they are wrapped on the smaller side of the picture.

Necessarily.

Before sending the work, all the details are discussed with the buyer. Whether you send the work with the baguette or not, what part of the money as an advance will be sent To you by the buyer. And what it will list To you when you receive it. If you send a cash on delivery, do not forget to specify that it is a cash on delivery, just Your work can be handed to the buyer as a parcel, he just takes it without any payment. It is better to ask the cashier once again how to fill out the form correctly, explain how you want to send it.

Tip: it is Better to use the services of companies that have courier delivery directly to the buyer’s door, there are many such companies, if you take all the same Russian post, it is EMS.
After sending the parcel, contact the buyer by telling him the number of the parcel, for example, if you use mail services, you can do this on the website-tracking mailings.

It is also worth noting that when sending a parcel when filling out the form there is a column “insurance”, be sure to enter an amount there, at least one and a half times the cost of the picture itself.
