Shipping Tips:

Since large prints and documents come in a wide variety of sizes, the best packing method will depend on what type of original you are sending us. For loose prints or paper documents that can be rolled, sending your order in a tube is the best way to ensure that your order arrives safely. Documents around 11x14" in size can also be packed flat in a sturdy mailer. For books or other objects, pack securely in a box.
