ARTWORK PACKAGING GUIDELINES
Importance of Proper Packaging
Note that your artwork may have to pass through a number of different centers, hands that handle your parcel / package roughly and poorly, as well as climate conditions (especially for international shipments). It is important that you follow the information in this guideline to ascertain that your artwork is packaged professionally and reaches the buyer / collector’s hands in perfect condition..
We cannot stress enough that inadequate packaging will damage your artworks i.e. abrasion of the artwork surface due to inadequate wrapping and padding. Loose artwork inside the packaging will get damaged (especially the corners your artwork) due to the friction and improper handling during the pick up, transport, shipping and delivery. Pressure from the weights of other articles on top of your artwork (while being in transit), can potentially break your artwork.
It is necessary to prepare and do the correct type of packaging to protect your artwork. Make your outer packaging sturdy, your inner packaging with sufficient buffering materials, include waterproof layering when necessary, more protection for the corners, enough wrappings / padding
