Deliveries & parcel tracking

Delivery within UK

Royal Mail supports next day delivery within the UK.

Royal Mail First Class items arrive the next working day. This method is only available for items with a value of £25 or less due to insurance reasons. The cost of this service is £3.99. As an alternative, we offer Special Delivery or UPS Next Day delivery within UK, insured up to full value of your parcel.

Royal Mail has introduced limitations on acceptable parcel weight and dimensions. For items larger or heavier than accepted we offer further delivery options (i.e. UPS). These methods will be automatically displayed on the screen upon checkout.

Royal Mail Special Delivery delivers within 24 hours in UK and insured up to £2,500. The cost of this service is £7.99. Delivery charges of larger or heavier parcels (i.e. framed prints) may vary between £12.99 and £39.99 for framed artworks over 2 metres long (i.e. large framed panorama drawings). Your options will be clearly displayed on the checkout page.

All registered deliveries come with tracking information. Once your parcel is on its way, we will email you your tracking number and a webaddress where you can follow the journey of your parcel. Track you parcel at my orders.

International delivery

Royal Mail International Signed For usually takes from two (most of Europe) to seven (i.e. Los Angeles, US) working days depending on geographic location. However, deliveries to Zone 2 countries like Australia, Japan, Korea and New Zealand may take longer. Parcels heading to the United States can also be tracked down on website using your tracking number. This international tracking number can now be used on the website of your national postal service as well in most countries. The cost of this service is £12.99.

UPS delivers within 24-96 hours anywhere in the world. Insurance to cover the full value of your parcel is included. Delivery charges start at £12.99 up to £65 for oversized artworks to be delivered to remote areas.

We may upgrade your delivery method without incurring any additional shipping expenses from your side. This is to ensure that your parcel reaches you as safely and fast as possible.

PO Box addresses

We suggest to avoid using PO Box addresses for shipping as some delivery offices refuse to receive parcels on behalf of their clients should they need to sign for them. Please make sure that your PO Box accepts deliveries where a signature is required upon delivery.


Loose prints are sent in protective cardboard postal tubes rolled up. This is the safest way to ship prints without mounts. Mounted and framed prints are shipped flat packed between several strong and protective corrugated boards. Original works are always shipped flatpacked with additional layers of safety to avoid potential creasing or water damage.

Delivery times

Upon checkout we will give you an accurate estimate of the despatch date for your parcel. Canvas prints and framed works may take longer to assemble and despatch, subject to availability.

In case of international shipping through Royal Mail (International Signed For) the postal company passes your parcel over to your local service for delivery, usually within two working days from the despatch date. Royal Mail has no control over your parcel from that moment. If your delivery is urgent it is advised to use UPS instead. However, if you still have not received your parcel within the expected delivery time please contact us and we will endevour to arrange a re-delivery and send you a replacement. Every parcel we send out is always insured to its full value. It may also happen that your local customs office inspects your parcel before releasing it for delivery. That can cause a slight delay.


It is within the discretion of all customs offices to impose additional charges before releasing your parcel for local delivery outside the United Kingdom. In that case the delivery company will attempt to contact you in person, over the phone or by leaving a card at your delivery address to notify you about such charges. Although these cases are rare we would advise you to enter your primary contact number upon registering with us to avoid delays or the inconvenience of missing your delivery.


We take full responsibility for any damage occuring during delivery. All parcels are automatically insured up to £25,000 worldwide with Lloyds Underwriters when they are despatched through UPS. (under terms of Art Dealers Insurance AD94).
