When you purchase one of my paintings, the shipping, packing and insurance costs can be roughly estimated at 10% to 15% of the cost of the painting. The costs depend on the mode of shipping – Canada Post is cheaper in Canada but costs more (usually) to the US, and UPS is cheaper for larger paintings (over 22″ x 30″ size). Extra charges are incurred if painting/artwork weighs more, and if speed of the delivery is an issue. Here are some examples of shipping costs:
- packing and insurance and shipping for a small-medium sized painting (16″ x 20″) would be approximately $60. If it is an artwork that weighs more or is irregularly shaped, there would be additional costs
- a large paintings (30″ x 40″) sent via UPS costs approximately $150, plus packing and insurance charges
- insurance with Canada Post has a standard liability coverage of $100 with additional liability coverage up to $5,000
