Glass: Please do not ship work with glass. We recommend acrylic or plexi-glass. When glass is broken in shipment, it slices through everything in the package! Work for the Festival Store should be matted or mounted on foam board and inserted in a cellophane sleeve.
Packaging: Art work that does not sell will be returned in the same packaging it was received in. Please pack your work in a box that can be easily opened and re-packed for the return trip.
No packing peanuts or styrofoam please! Use bubble-wrap and packing tape to make a snug fitting envelope to put your work in. If needed, make a larger envelope for additional protection. The wrapped work should fit snugly into the box.
Carrier Guidelines: Check your carrier's packaging guidelines. Even if your package is insured, carriers will not cover damaged shipments that were poorly packaged.
