Artworks, paintings and ornaments are items that are priceless and often irreplaceable, so you need to ensure that they are protected and packed properly for storage and/or transportation. Although, it may take you additional time and effort to pack them, we guarantee that it’ll be worth it once you display them at your next home or office. This week, we’re sharing our tips in packing arts and ornaments.
Before you start the packing process, make sure you equip yourself with all the packing materials you need, such as:
Packing framed artworks
To prepare your framed artwork for storage or transportation, follow the instructions below:
Glass Step 1
Glass Step 2
This is help prevent the glass from shattering and damaging the art underneath if the glass breaks during transportation.
To pack your ornaments, simply wrap them in bubble wrap and/or packing paper to prevent them from breaking. Where possible, make sure you separate and disassemble the pieces and wrap each piece in bubble wrap or packing paper. Secure your wrapping with packing tape and place it in the carton of your choosing. Remember to fill it any space with extra packing paper or foam to prevent them from moving and for optimal protection.
Finally, seal the carton, label properly and don’t forgot to stick a piece of fragile tape.
