Packaging and protection
The Soul Laundry uses sturdy strong art tubes to ship your art print purchase to you safely and without damage. Prints are rolled loosely, wrapped in layers of acid free tissue and, where appropriate, a grease proof sheet to protect the print work.
Postcards and smaller prints are sent flat between strong card to avoid creasing. These are also protected in acid free tissue.
Where appropriate some art prints, and original pieces are sent flat packed or boxed. These will be notified upon purchase.
Please email email@example.com for a preferred method of packaging and shipment.
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.
Certificate of Authentication / C.O.A.
The Soul Laundry supplies each art piece with a Certificate of Authenticity (C.O.A.), this certifies the artwork’s provenance. The certificate will show the artist and artwork name, the unique edition number (if it is a Limited Edition); and will be signed by the artist. If the artwork you purchase is an original piece, the C.O.A. will show this.
Artists and print studios don’t always supply a COA and rely on invoices and receipts as proof of purchase and authenticity. In these instances Gallery’s and suppliers provide a COA to assure that the art work can be proven to come direct from the artist. If at any time you wish to sell on your art print, the new buyer can trace the provenance of the print and thus verify the authenticity. The Soul Laundry Certificate of Authenticity all come embossed and hand signed by myself.
