Frequently Asked Questions

I have worked in various galleries over the years, helping with exhibition installations, so I have lots of experience with art handling and packaging. All of my work is wrapped with utmost care to keep it safe in transit. Please see the information below with regards to frequently asked questions.

Prints

All prints are packed in a sealed cello bag with a lightweight backing board to ensure it stays straight. The print is then put in an envelope with a cardboard core for added stability.

Prints are, unless stated differently on the product page, on matt 270g/m² paper. This paper is fade resistant, meaning the print will not lose vibrancy with time, ensuring that it looks as crisp as when it was first printed.

Each print has an approximately one inch border to allow for signing, numbering and titling. All prints are signed with an archival, fade proof, acid free ink pen.

Originals

Original paintings are wrapped in acid free tissue paper, sealed polythene to create a watertight seal, and bubble wrap. The packaged painting is then placed in a padded cardboard box to further protect it. 'Fragile' tape is used on the outside of the box so couriers know to handle it with care.

For further information on how I ship my artworks, see my blog post 'How To Package An Artwork'.

Commissions

I accept commissions for resin artworks. Visit my commissions page for pricing details or send me an email at info@katechesters.com

Refunds/Returns/Exchanges

I do not accept refunds, returns or exchanges unless the item has been damaged in transit. Proof of damage would be required e.g. with photographs. I provide plenty of images to give a clear representation of what the work looks like, if you need any more images of a piece which you are interested in then please feel free to ask me and I would be more than happy to help.

 

Delivery

Shipping is FREE within the U.K. I offer international shipping. For international orders, shipping costs will be calculated depending on size and weight.

Resin

I use the best resin available on the market - ArtResin. ArtResin contains a UV and light stabiliser which means that yellowing doesn't occur (with cheaper brands of resin yellowing occurs over time). 

The resin that I use is food safe, making it an excellent medium to use for the artwork on my artisan chopping boards. You can find the food safe link here. 

ArtResin is non-hazardous and non-toxic. Resin is waterproof and extremely hard once dry. 

Do not put your artisan cutting board in the dishwasher or leave it to stand in water. To clean your board wipe it with a damp cloth. This is best practice advice for all wooden chopping boards, whether they are resin decorated or not. 

Can I chop on the resin?

Yes! Check out the video below showing me chopping on the resin part of the board. 

Like with anything that regularly has a knife slicing on it, slight scratches will appear over time, however, the artwork will not be damaged. Resin is an incredibly strong material and I only use the very best resin available
