original artwork postage

Original art pieces are carefully shipped in multiple layers of bubble wrap, extra cardboard support, and wrapped in plastic to prevent any damage from moisture. The totals listed include around $1 to cover the cost of packing materials.

Some original pieces are available but have not been posted yet. Feel free to inquire if there is a specific piece you’re after that isn’t listed in the shop.

U.S. DOMESTIC ORDERS

Inside the U.S., original art is shipped using Priority Mail, which includes tracking. Artwork does not qualify to be sent using Media Mail. For combined orders, if some alternate shipping method is preferred, or if you have any specific questions about the pieces, please contact me before ordering at irrappext (at) gmail.com. I’m not in front of my computer every day, so it will sometimes be a day or two before I’m able to respond.

ALL INTERNATIONAL ORDERS

Outside the U.S. the option of either First Class International or Priority International is available. I decided to include Priority as standard option in spite of its extremely high cost, since it seemed likely that more people would want an option with some kind of tracking given the higher price range and non-replaceable nature of the items.

There is no tracking available with First Class! Lost packages are an extremely rare occurrence, but no refunds will be given if a package is lost in transit, so this method is used entirely at the risk of the buyer. Original art items are one-of-a-kind and so there is no way for me to replace them.

Priority International includes tracking (the website says “to major destinations”, but it’s unclear what this actually means) and automatic insurance that will cover between $70-$280 in value (depending on weight); if you want to add a higher insurance value, please contact me first. Other, more expensive shipping options are available, but in my experience the ‘Priority Express’ service does not end up being much faster, and ‘Priority Express Guaranteed’ is neither faster nor guaranteed, so you just end up paying a lot more for something that is (at best) the same as regular Priority. If you want to use one of these options anyway, contact me.

For combined orders, specific questions about the pieces or the shipping methods, please contact me before ordering at irrappext (at) gmail.com. I’m not in front of my computer every day, so it will sometimes be a day or two before I’m able to respond.

Apologies, as always, for the lousy international shipping rates.
