Does anyone have experience of shipping small paintings from the uk? Particularly to USA. I would just like to know how to do it and if its just posted through the post office .
Yep- I go to the post office, ask for the ‘tracked and signed for’ option, which usually costs just under £10. Then I email the buyer with the tracking number on the receipt, so they can keep an eye on it if they want. Hope that helps!
Same as the previous reply. All my sales are from the UK to the USA. I paint on panel as it is more robust, gift wrap it, then wrap lightly in bubble wrap then put into a rip-proof Royal Mail posting bag and fill in the customs slip (you can get these by the roll from the P.O.). Cost is £9.75 or thereabouts for up to 10x8.
call fed ex , I have heard they know how to deal with customs and do the paperwork correctly.
Thankyou! Thats great.
Thanks Karen! Really useful information .
