Please find details about shipping below, but if you have any questions please contact: office@fairarttrade.net

We recommend that you read our shipping terms below for a full understanding of how we work.


All our artworks are sent via a tracked and signed for service. Once payment has been received, we will despatch the artwork as soon as possible. Once despatched, you will receive a tracking number so you can follow its progress.
Please get in touch if you'd like to receive your piece by a certain date and we will do our best to get it to you in time.

You must be home to receive your delivery as a signature is required. If you'd like to change your delivery address after you've placed the order (e.g. to an office address where someone is there to sign), then please email us.

Shipping costs for overseas buyers will be automatically calculated at check-out once you enter your shipping country. We will also be in touch after your purchase to let you know of an expected delivery date, but we are unable to be day-specific with international shipments, however the shipper should be in touch with you to notify you of the progress. Please note that additional import taxes and duties may also apply to overseas buyers. Artworks purchased by overseas buyers can take up to 4 weeks to arrive, depending on their final destination, however, it usually takes no longer than a week. 


Where possible, we will try to flat pack your artwork to prevent curling. If your artwork is large, or if it is deemed safe to roll it, we will do so to protect it during transit.  To reduce ecological footprint we will pack artworks with undamaged used boxes and discarded packaging materials whenever posssible.

If your artwork is received in a tube, we recommend removing it from the tube as soon as possible (ideally by a framer), to prevent curling.

If you have purchased a pastel or charcoal work of art, please take the artwork straight to a framer before removing from its cellophane sleeve, to prevent smudging (as although the works have been fixed, some residue dust may still come off of the artwork.)

All artworks are accompanied by F certificates of authenticity.
