BRIEF HISTORY

Remember when you were young and you didn’t have a cell phone that took photos? Obviously, I’m speaking to those of a certain age, most likely born in the 1980s or earlier. It was a time when you had to wait to get film processed. It could take a week or longer and when you got it back you had no idea if they were all going to be even worth the wait. Sometimes they were blurry or the flash was too bright or someone sneezed; the list goes on and on of all the “throw-away” photos you used to waste money on and necessary means of the process.

However, there was the exception of the Polaroid. Polaroids were an instant fix for your photograph processing needs. You snapped the photo, out popped your photo, then you set it face side down (or if you were a rebel you shook it, though I don’t recommend that method), waited 5 minutes for it to develop and PRESTO!

The great thing about Polaroids were their portability, instant gratification, fun for parties, various formats, fun filters, and “artsy” quality. Though, again, I don’t like that term much, but I’ll go with it. In 2001, Polaroid declared bankruptcy and then again in 2008 filled Chapter 11 bankruptcy, shutting down its three factories. In the following years, a Dutch company revived the beloved film under The Impossible Project later to acquire Polaroid’s brand and intellectual property and become Polaroid Originals.

ARTWORK SHIPPING DETAILS

All paintings on stretched canvas are shipped “Ready To Hang.” They are hooked and wired on the back with the appropriate hardware.

Prints and works on paper typically need to be framed. They do not come framed unless otherwise noted.

Additionally, you will receive an official Certificate of Authenticity to prove the work is genuine and is to be kept with the work for the entirety of its lifespan.

USPS, UPS, FedEx courier services.

Carrier subject to change depending on rates, timeframes, etc. to make sure you receive the art safely in the shortest time.

Rates based on total weight (artwork + packaging), timeframe, and time of year (i.e. increased holiday rates).

Shipping insurance provided, additional arrangements upon request.

Free local pick-up is available. Must have your own transportation and load/unloading assistance. Contact to make arrangements.

Each piece of art ships individually directly from the studio, occasionly smaller artworks purchased on the same transaction may be packaged together.

Art ships flat in a sturdy, well-protected cardboard box to ensure their safe transport. Expect your artwork to arrive with plenty of package support. Eco-conscious use of materials is always taken into consideration, recycled and reused materials are used when appropriate.

Art is wrapped in acid-free archival tissue paper. Then covered with plastic sheeting for protection against moisture and dust. Bubble/foam wrapped with cardboard corner protectors. Finally supported by foam board or two-ply layers of cardboard.

Prints and other works on paper are shipped flat in chipboard mailers. Inside they are protected by cellophane wrapping and layers of foam or cardboard.

Crated
Ship the art stretched as-is, in a constructed wooden container. Usually more costly.

Rolled
The art is carefully removed from stretcher bars, then delicately rolled with layers of acid-free paper and plastic sheeting to avoid sticking. Finally, packaged in large tube or triangle with additional filler to prevent jostling. Cost-effective, a common safe method. Acrylic is very pliable, unless reaches extreme temperatures (below approximately 40F / 5C). Northbound winter deliveries might be forewarned to postpone.
