Original and Textured Paintings... sent safely across the world in a BOX
We make hand-made hardboard cases to safeguard your art.
Every painting has arrived perfectly, so far, since we started in 2009.
It takes time and care but we have the equipment and skills to make a box accurately and easily...
See how we do it:
Finally we wrap the box in energy-absorbing corrugated cardboard, stick on lots of annoying FRAGILE tape and ask the couriers to put no weight on top.
We send you unpacking and hanging instructions. You can view a copy from the list below by clicking on it:

Your Print - Safe in a FLAT PACK
We send limited edition, mounted prints, and even framed prints, exactly as displayed in the gallery. We make a FLAT PACK by putting tight-fitting 1cm foam strip round the edge, sandwiching it between two sheets of strong hardboard or framer's mdf and taping it all round the edges to ensure it is waterproof yet easy to undo. Just don't slice into the sides too deep with your stanley knife when unpacking! See the unpacking instructions above.
We do not use tubes to send prints. Two reasons: (1) damage happened the only time we did so, even using the toughest tube, (2) the print comes out tightly curled which is difficult for a framer and is highly likely to cause you to kink it when you have a look on the kitchen table! Not worth the time saving, so we always send flat pack.
Your Framed Print - 100% record in FLAT PACK
We pack glass framed art as above, but also protected with foamboard fitted over the glass. Since we started using this method in 2015 we have NO BREAKAGE or damage.
Sadly, on the only occasion when we used commercial packing without the mdf protection, the courier managed to drop something sharp on it and cause edge damage: fairly minor, but serious enough for us to resolve to keep strictly to our high standards of protection ever since.
