How long does it take you to dispatch an original painting?
Original paintings are shipped within 24 hours if they are in stock. Please note that some original paintings are on exhibit in galleries, but are still available for sale. In this event, Sue will contact you with a more exact time frame for dispatch. It is advisable to contact Sue before purchasing an original painting, to check availability.
How long does it take you to dispatch Limited Edition Prints?
If the prints are in stock, they will ship within 24 hours. However, if the prints are not in stock – which is often the case – they are ordered from Sue’s printer within 24 hours. After that, it normally takes about 4 additional working days for Sue’s printer to print the order and ship it back to Sue for signing, numbering and dispatch. Please bear this in mind when ordering. With shipping dispatch time included, you can expect your print from within 14 working days (in stock), and up to 25 working days (special order).
How long does shipping take?
We use trusted courier services as the South African Post Office has become slow and very unreliable. Shipping takes between 4 to 5 working days, depending upon your location. Please contact Stuart Dickinson at email@example.com if you would like specific shipping times.
What does shipping cost?
Courier costs from South Africa are expensive. Please allow for this when ordering. The average cost of shipping from South Africa to the USA is about ZAR2,000 (approximately $125.00); to Europe, about ZAR1,700 (approximately £85.00 ). The good news is that this shipping rate applies to orders of up to 6 prints. See details below. This is because packages are shipped on their volumetric size, not their weight.
What is the cost of shipping for more than one item?
If you order any limited edition print or standard size painting, you can add further prints/paintings with no additional shipping cost. FREE! You pay for shipping only one print/painting, up to a maximum of 6 items. For orders exceeding 6 items, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a shipping quotation.
How do you package paintings and/or prints?
Paintings and prints are packaged in the same way. They are packed flat (not rolled), between 2 thick pieces of polystyrene. In this way they are protected against damage.
How do you ship paintings larger than standard size?
Paintings larger than 72 x 54cm (standard size) are shipped in a special way, depending upon their exact size. Please contact us for a specific quote for your location.
Is there a handling fee?
Handling and packaging are factored into the price of shipping.
Will I have to pay taxes or duties?
This varies from country to country and also depends upon the value of your order. Please contact your country’s Customs and Excise Department for further information.
Which countries can you ship to?
All countries worldwide. Unless there’s a civil war going on.
