My Actual Shipping Checklist

So you sold your first product. Now what?

This process will always vary from business to business, but below is the actual step by step process I go through for all of my original art orders.

My Shipping Checklist:

  1. Varnish painting and allow proper dry time.
  2. Wire painting for hanging.
  3. Write personal Thank You note and envelope.
  4. Burn edges of note.
  5. Put note, 3 business cards, and any other extras in envelope.
  6. Wrap painting in craft paper.
  7. Tape note to front of painting.
  8. Wrap painting in bubble wrap.
  9. Box painting.
  10. Fill box with packing bubbles or peanuts.
  11. Close box.
  12. Weigh box. 
  13. Fill out shipping information on website.
  14. Print and attach packing slip.

This is the exact process I go through for each and every original painting I sell. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, feel free to comment below, hit me up on any of my social media accounts or email me at
