We know that shipping artwork can be a pain, but with proper packaging technique and safety measures, you can ensure that the piece arrives to its buyer in perfect condition. To help, we’ve put together some guidelines for packaging and shipping that will help you ensure your works are protected in transit.
In addition to covering payment processing, authentication, and support, Cohart manages the shipping process for you.
When you make a sale, we will provide you with shipping labels and the documentation that you need to ship your artwork domestically or internationally. We work with the courier to schedule a time to pick up your package from your studio, or, you can drop the artwork off on your own at a local depot.
All artworks shipped with Cohart are fully insured. That said, packaging your artwork appropriately is the best way to prevent against a damaged artwork.
<aside> ⚠️ Before you package up your work, don’t forget to sign and date your piece!
Choosing the right shipping materials is the first step towards sending your artwork safely. It’s important to use high-quality tubes, boxes or crates, cushioning materials, and packing tape. While this may be more costly than using lower-quality materials, the price difference is minimal compared to the cost of a damaged artwork.
Your local post office will have some of these materials on hand, or you can purchase as needed or in bulk from a company like U-Line.
