Shipping objects to the Studio
Packing works of art in preparation for shipment is essential in ensuring its safe transportation. Some guidelines for packing are listed below but if you are unsure, please call or email us your questions.

Flat works on paper
– Wrap your object in a clean and smooth paper like tissue paper, kraft paper, or glassine. Do not place water-resistant materials like bubble wrap or plastic wrap in direct contact with the surface of your artwork.
– Protect your object from physical damage (creases and dents) by sandwiching it between stiff boards that are at least 2 inches larger (on all sides) than the object.
– Tape the boards in place and wrap it with kraft or packing paper. Make sure that the tape is not in direct contact with the object. You can wrap water-resistant materials like bubble wrap, or polyethylene around the covered boards for additional protection.
– Pack the work in a structurally sound and clean box i.e. corrugated cardboard box. You can reduce vibration during shipping by placing a smaller box inside a larger box with padding between the two.

Flat works on paper with sensitive surfaces
– Works on paper with sensitive media like pastels, charcoal drawings, or modern works; and works with unstable media (like flaking or powdering paint) should be packed with special care.
– Ensure that the packing materials do not come into direct contact with the surface of these works.
– The sensitive work should be transported flat. If possible, pack the object where there is a gap between its surface, and the wrapping.

Rolled works on paper
– To avoid crushing rolled objects, roll the work face-out around the outside of a wide tube (at least 4″ in diameter).
– There should be a barrier layer between the tube surface and the object, this can be any clean and smooth material like polyester film, glassine, or paper.
– Wrap another barrier layer of paper or glassine around the object.

*Packing materials do not need to be of archival quality if they are not in direct contact with the object.
