Hi-

I have a question for collector’s and fellow artists alike:

As a collector would one prefer the giclee sent stretched and shipped flat or would one prefer rolled the giclee in a tube to be stretched and framed by the owner?

Usually most sales for me on giclees (which are relatively new for me) are local and shipped stretched and flat and I have not had any problems.

BTW they will be printed on canvas.

Preferences please?

B

I actually do not mind, but I can stretch canvas ๐Ÿ˜‰

I really do not think it matters too much.
I love to get a pre stretch canvas if done properly.
Other than that, standard way to ship is in a tube so it is not much of an issue.

I think for most overseas shipments, having them rolled up in a sturdy tube would be a safer choice.

I can’t imagine a print being shipped flat arriving in the original condition ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

In fact, I’d like to hear from anyone who’s had a print, framed or unframed, shipped flat via normal postal services (ie. not using a courier company like Fedex) overseas. Did it arrive safely and in perfect condition?
