Bringing prints to an art show in Glasgow

Jump to last reply

I have an odd question. I am a part-time artist (full time accountant) that sends matted prints (usually fantasy digital art) to different scifi/fantasy cons around the country. Usually I mail it to the con, they hang it, and send back either unsold art or a check for sold art (or a combo).

In August 2005, Glasgow is hosting Worldcon. I would like to bring or send my art. I'm trying to find out which will be more economical. I am already planning on attending, as we're attaching it to our London honeymoon. So the only cost differences will be if we mail in ahead of time or bring it with us.

Major concerns are customs, postage, and delivery times. Since these are works of art, I'm sure there are special rules. The sales would be conducted by the con itself, which takes care of any tax en masse.

Does anyone have any info that could help me? I realize this may not be the BEST venue for the question, but this board has surprised me in the past with the wealth and depth of knowledge the posters have. I've checked the customs site for the UK, and came back more confused than I went in! :(

Thanks for any insight!
