Mailing Art to Visioncon

If you are unable to attend but wish to participate from the comfort of your own home, you may mail art to the address listed below. It will be stored until the convention and any unsold art will be returned to you post-con. Please ship by way of your favorite carrier. Please allow two weeks for UPS and three weeks for USPS. This does not include weekends or holidays. Use sturdy, reusable cartons to ship. Remember that we cannot send back your unsold art if the box is in pieces. Be sure to send enough funds to cover return postage and insurance (if applicable). You are responsible for providing insurance while your package is in transit. The Con Committee will provide security during the con and will bear any costs incurred due to theft or loss while the artwork is in their possession.

Be sure to include a pre-paid label in your package to be used for return shipping. Try to pre-pay for UPS or FED-EX if possible. Otherwise, we will have to use USPS and your check sent in needs to be enough to cover the return shipping. The label should include your FULL STREET ADDRESS AND ZIP CODE. If you have any special packing instructions, we recommend you tape them to the inside lid of your box or staple them to control sheets. That way, the instructions do not become separated from the package.

All packages should reach Visioncon by February 28th, 2019. Any artists who have reserved space whose packages have not arrived by then are likely to throw us in a panic. We can be flexible on the date, but remember that shipping companies are notorious for dragging their feet, especially if they think it may be an important package they are carrying.
