Shipping Framed Artworks

We now ship framed artworks (yay!) both to the UK and internationally. To ship your framed artwork, give us a call or drop us an email and we will get a quote together for you. There are certain size limits to what we can send, but they vary depending on destination, so let us know what it is you want to be framed and shipped and we can work it out for you.

Oversize or fragile shipping

A number of our artworks are too large or fragile to be shipped using our regular services. On purchasing an oversize or fragile artwork you will be made aware of the individual packaging and shipping rates for an artwork of that nature. For certain artworks, and certain destinations in the world we provide custom quotes for shipping, if this is the case please contact the gallery. Alternatively if you would like to organise your own shipping please let us know.

Shipping Terms

Nelly Duff is not responsible for international duties or taxes.

All international duties and taxes in relation to your order are the responsibility of the buyer.

Nelly Duff is not responsible for parcels damaged during shipping. Compensation for loss or damage is the responsibility, and at the discretion of the shipping provider, which Nelly Duff will oversee and pursue on behalf of the customer.

The amount and means of compensation is determined according to the shipping provider’s terms and conditions, and the nature of an individual claim.

In the case that we are unable to deliver our packages to your given address (due to a lack of access to the site or an incorrect address), and the parcels are returned to us, additional payment will be required for a second shipping.

Occasionally there might be a delay in shipping your artwork; we are a small team, and some of our artworks are in storage. If this is the case you will be contacted by the gallery.

Nelly Duff observes Royal Mail’s operational hours, therefore we do not ship artworks on UK bank holidays and weekends. Parcels are sent out on the next working day.

Nelly Duff does not currently offer shipping for framed artworks.
