To protect your artwork, it is crucial that they are packed securely with sufficient packing materials in order to prevent any damage during transit.

For Unframed Artworks

Artworks shipped rolled
Wrap the artwork in acid free tissue paper before rolling the piece. If you are shipping more than one artwork together, add a layer of acid free tissue paper in between the artworks.
For additional protection against moisture and damages, wrap the artwork with bubble wrap.
Pack the artwork into a well fitted shipping tube and for extra security, tape down the lids of the tube.
Clearly mark the package as fragile and note to handle with care.

Shipped Flat (e.g. artworks on paper)
Wrap the artwork in acid free tissue paper. If you are shipping more than one artwork together, add a layer of acid free tissue paper in between the artworks.
To protect each corner for the work, fold four pieces of acid-free tissue paper into triangles with a side open, then place the triangles on each corner.
For additional protection against moisture and damages, wrap the artwork with plastic or bubble wrap.
Pack the artworks in a well-fitted box and ensure that any openings are taped securely.
Clearly mark the package as fragile and note to handle with care.

For Framed Artworks, Sculptures and other Large-size and Fragile Artworks

Wrap the artwork with acid free tissue paper and/or bubble wrap.
Use a custom wooden crate or double-wall cardboard box to pack the artwork.
Leave at least a 10 cm gap between the artwork and the walls of the crate/box to include additional filling of shredded paper or foam peanuts around the packed artwork.
Ensure that any openings are taped or nailed securely.
