Premium Shipping and Packaging on Every Order

What's special about our shipping? We package every item as if it was on its way to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, or you could say, as if it was coming from there. We believe our customers deserve to receive their item promptly and in perfect condition

SHIPPING TIMING. In 2017 we will now be shipping every Monday. All orders from the previous week, Monday through Sunday, will ship the following Monday. This will help us reduce costs and keep shipping costs to a minimum. Based on feedback from our 150,000 customers worldwide over recent years, inexpensive shipping is more important than fast shipping for these types of items. So, we're modifying our model to accommodate.

To make sure that happens, we use custom archival packaging, multiple package stiffeners, foam separators between items, bubble wrap around the entire item, Do Not Bend labels, Fragile - Handle with Care labels, and labels created right from our customers checkout so we can eliminate errors. Clearance items will have limited additional packaging componenents to help keep shipping costs inexpensive for customers.

We have received over 5,000 positive feedbacks that refer almost exclusively to our packaging. Here are just a few:
