How to pack fragile works and more.

All artwork, mirrors, and glass should be packed in mirror/picture boxes and you will need the following to pack them:

  • Packing tape
  • Blank newsprint paper or bubble wrap, picture boxes

Framed Artwork or Pieces

  1. Prepare a picture box for the artwork by putting newsprint on the bottom of the box. Do not close the top end of the box.
  2. Wrap each individual artwork or print with newsprint or wrap them in bubble wrap.
  3. Put the item in the box and if they fit loosely in the box, fill in the spaces with paper.
  4. Tape the box shut and mark it “Fragile-Art Work.”

Glass Tops

  1. Prepare a picture moving box for the glass top by putting newsprint paper on the bottom of the box or each box. Do not close the top end of the box.
  2. Wrap each individual glass top with newsprint or wrap them in bubble wrap.
  3. Put the glass top in the box and if they fit loosely in the box, fill in the spaces with paper. If two boxes are needed for the glass top then put the second box on top of the other by scoping them together and fill spaces with paper.
  4. Tape the box or boxes shut and mark it “Fragile-Glass Top.”

Mirrors

  1. Put tape across the front of the mirror like an X to keep the pieces in place in case the glass cracks or breaks.
  2. Prepare a picture box for the mirror by putting newsprint paper on the bottom of the box or each box. Do not close the top end of the box.
  3. Wrap each individual mirror with newsprint or wrap them in bubble wrap.
  4. Put the mirror in the box and if they fit loosely in the box, fill in the spaces with paper. If two boxes are needed for the mirror then put the second box on top of the other by scoping them together and fill spaces with paper.
  5. Tape the box or boxes shut and mark it “Fragile- Mirror.”
