Careful preparation and packaging of art is very important to ensure it is well protected during transit. The packaging must be able to withstand shocks, which are very common during transport.
When packing works of paper, we layer them onto a rigid double corrugated boxing with acid-free tissue paper in between each work to protect the surface. The work is secured to the surface with paper corners to prevent any shifting during transport. The packing is marked with a top side and fragile sticker.
When a framed artwork needs to be packed for shipping, a masking tape grid is placed on the glass to prevent glass from damaging the art should the glass break during transport. Foam pads are used for reinforcement on the corners of the frame.
For bigger and more delicate work, we outsource a crating service that builds a stable and hard wood cover around the work.
