Shipping is done by UPS, Fedex, or Priority mail. This is depended upon size, weight, and the pbest price for you. Once I receive your payment, into my account, your item ships within 2-3 working days. All orders are shipped USPS or for large items UPS or Fedex. I only ship items out Tuesday's or Friday's. So if your money clears on Friday morning...it goes. All artwork is placed in a waterproof sealer(bag), placed between corrigated sheets, and then placed in a box or mailer depending on purchase. If your buying Original art, items are placed in a clear bag, then wrapped with sturdy craft paper. I package every piece of artwork very carefully to prevent damage. All packing is recyclable except the bag the art it is placed in.
