The Giclee Factory offers some of the lowest shipping rates in the US and Canada, with no cross border fees to any destinations. All orders under $150 are shipped UPS ground for $14.75 anywhere in the US (excluding Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and everywhere we can't ship ground) or Canada. Drop shipping is also available at no extra cost. The complete price list for shipping is as follows:
Stretched canvas: *
Up to $150: $14.75
Non stretched canvas and watercolor: *
Up to $200: $14.75
*Only the total cost of the giclees (including hangers if needed) is calculated for the shipping costs. Rush printing, color corrections, etc, don't count toward total shipping costs. Also if you have a mixed order that includes stretched canvas, the stretched canvas shipping cost will apply. Note that orders including stretched canvas over 36"x48" and orders too big for UPS may cost more to ship.
Rush printing vs. rush shipping
We offer rush shipping for orders that have to be at their destination early. But we would like to stress that in many instances a rush-printing option is more economical and will most likely meet your deadline. Rush printing will entail a 50% increase in printing costs; it will nevertheless, in most cases, be more economical and faster than rush shipping. For rush shipping or printing, please contact our customer service department at 877-686-1114.
Packaging is an art in itself, and we have very talented and experienced artists in this field. We have over 50 different sizes and shapes of boxes on hand at all times, and over-sized prints are shipped in custom-made wooden boxes. Prints are carefully snuggled into boxes so that they are protected against movement, rubbing inside the box, and blows from the outside. As a result, giclees are practically never damaged in transit.
