No. The shipping cost will be passed on to the buyer. But it will be your responsibility to ship the artwork thru a reputable and reliable courier. You can consider adding an extra on top of the price for packaging your artwork as most couriers require the artwork to be packed properly.
An artwork should be covered in plastic to protect against moisture and encased in a bubble wrap or foamboard. Cardboard corner protector must also be placed in all corners. Before putting inside a wooden crate or corrugated box, sandwich the artwork with styrofoam or crampled newspapers to keep the artwork from moving and fit securely in the box.
Should an artwork gets damaged upon delivery, Pahiyas Art will coordinate with you, the buyer and the courier to discuss the damage and come up with possible solutions.
