Shipping and Handling Charges

We are able to ship orders only to locations inside the United States, due to the complexities and expenses of international shipping.

We recycle boxes on most orders!  All of the "peanuts" and most of the packing materials we use are recycled as well!

Rates for UPS Ground:  All UPS and Truck Shipping methods require a physical address. They are unable to deliver to a PO Box.  If we are unable to ship your order using standard shipment, you will be notified prior to shipment.


Shipping charges are based on order's subtotal before tax.

Shipping Methods:  Artisan ships all orders via UPS Ground throughout the continental United States when possible except packages to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.  These will be shipped via USPS Parcel Post unless otherwise requested.  UPS Express and Next Day are also available in these areas.
Truck Delivery:  Any shipment which is oversize for UPS will be shipped motor freight, freight collect.  Charges for truck freight exceed our normal shipping  charges. Call for an estimate.  Additional charges will be incurred due to oversize packages and hazardous materials.

Drop Shipping:  Items will be shipped directly from the manufacturer and will not qualify for free freight.  Call for additional shipping charges.

Hazardous Materials:  Some of the paints, mediums, thinners, and pressurized products we sell are considered hazardous materials or "ORM" by the U.S. Department of Transportation and UPS.  There may be additional shipping charges for hazardous materials, please inquire.

Back Orders:  Occasionally we must back-order an item that is out of stock.  Since shipping charges are based on the initial order's total, any shipping charges for the back ordered items will have already been paid.  No additional shipping charges will be added to that back order.  If more than one item is back ordered, we will wait until all items have arrived and ship a complete back-order at that time.

Special Orders:  We do special orders.  Call us at (800) 331-6375 or E-mail us at for special orders.  These include non-stock items or unusual quantities of stock items; they will be shipped according to standard shipping services.
