This brief guide is meant to highlight those features we offer at FinerWorks for artists and photographers who use us as their order fulfillment service. At FinerWorks, we believe providing reliable order fulfillment must be simple. In addition, we want artists and photographers to be confident their customers will receive the prints exactly as intended. There is no application process and it and does not take any special knowledge or technical expertise. If you know how to access photos or image files off your computer and use the Internet, your basic requirements have been met. If you have used FinerWorks before for online ordering, this guide will help you make sure you have not overlooked some of the tools we offer.

What is Drop Shipping?

One of the first things we did when we built our initial ordering system over a decade ago was provide an automatic drop shipping option. Drop shipping simply means you do not need to carry any inventory or worry about packaging and shipping. You commission the drop shipper (which would be FinerWorks) to send the order to your customers but branded under your name so it looks like you or your company shipped it.

Many big online companies rely on this method either solely or to let them ship products which they normally would not be able to inventory. Amazon.com uses this method for some of the items sold and at the individual level Ebay and Esty sellers use this method all the time.

How it Works

At checkout in the area where you select your “Shipping Method” will be a check box you can click to indicate you want it drop shipped. If you provide a valid address in your account’s business profile, we will automatically check this for you. The order is then shipped and made to look like you are the sender. No information about us will be included. Prices will also be removed from the packing slip.

We do. In fact, because our frames are “made to order”, we do not price our custom sizes any differently than those considered to be “standard”.

No. Glazing is in the form of acrylic glass and can be ordered with your frame or ala carte.

FinerWorks currently does not offer actual glass as the glazing since glass has a high rate of breaking during shipping.

Yes. You can order from a wide range of frame styles however in order to do this, you will need to order the “panel only” style to open the frame options. This will allow you to choose the frame you want.

For framed prints, Tyvek backing (black or white) is placed on the back of the frame to seal the artwork from dust and moisture. Appropriate hanging hardware is installed on the back.

For frames ordered without the print, hanging hardware is provided but not installed.

Shell-packs (3-packs) do not include any hanging hardware.

We have built in volume discounts that are applied when you order multiple copies of a frame. Add more than one to your shopping cart and the per item price will update to the discounted price.

All framing is done in-house at our headquarters in San Antonio, Texas. This is done by a team of trained FinerWorks production members in our framing department.
