Framed Delivery

Upon purchasing a framed artwork via our website, your artwork will be sent to our framing workshop and once completed will be dispatched directly from our workshop via APC Overnight service to arrive with you the following working day. From placing your order, it will take approximately 5-10 working days to build your frame and once complete you will be notified on dispatch.

Currently we are only offering delivery on custom framed works purchased via the website within the UK, although we will be looking to expand to international delivery in the future! Almost all of our artworks are able to be delivered within the UK, however some of our XXL pieces require specialist delivery, this will be shown at checkout.

If you purchased your frame directly from the gallery in store or over the phone, the team will be able to quote you on a case by case basis for delivery costs to be sent via courier.

Please ensure you unbox and check your frame as soon as you have received it, and if any damage has occurred please ensure it is reported to Nelly Duff within the first 24 hours of receipt.

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.

For our complete list of terms and conditions, please see our terms.
