How to pack your artwork for transport.

Packing your artwork for transport can be a very daunting task. Your precious artwork must be wrapped in a professional way, so it arrives at it’s destination, without being damaged in anyway.

Very early in my art career, I sent some small paintings overseas for an exhibition. I thought I had done really well in packaging them for the journey. I started with a layer of acid free tissue paper, bubble-wrap, then into a box.

On return to Australia, I unwrapped the paintings and couldn’t believe it. Two of the paintings were embedded with bubble-wrap dots from the high temperatures in travel.
Today, I use many, many layers of acid free tissue, rigid card back and front, cardboard corners then, I wrap the whole artwork with bubble- wrap and put the parcel into my sturdy custom – made art boxes .
