How To Pack Artwork & Mirrors You'll need:

  1. Packing Tape

  2. Blank newsprint and cardboard or bubble wrap

  3. Styrofoam peanuts for sculptures

  4. Boxes (flat and/or sized to fit) for each piece of artwork

How How To Pack Artwork & Mirrors:

Framed prints

  1. Wrap them individually in newsprint and then Packing Tape cardboard around them. Or wrap them in bubble wrap.

  2. Put them in flat fitted boxes. If they still fit loosely in their individual boxes, fill in the spaces with lightly wadded blank newsprint.

  3. Packing Tape the box shut and mark it. You're done!

Mirrors

  1. Put Packing Tape across the front of the mirror like an "X" to keep the pieces in place in case the glass breaks.

  2. Wrap in bubble wrap or blank newsprint with cardboard Packing Taped around them. Fill loose spaces with lightly wadded paper

  3. Put in a flat box, seal, and mark "Fragile - Mirror." That's all!

Original paintings

  1. If your painting is framed with glass, Packing Tape the front like an "X" with masking Packing Tape.

  2. Cover the framed painting or canvas with bubble wrap and Packing Tape it closed.

  3. Build a box to fit that is slightly bigger than the painting, or purchase one. If you're packing a canvas (no frame, no glass), wrap the cardboard box in bubble wrap again, Packing Tape it, then build or buy a second box slightly bigger than the first. Double boxing is a guarantee against other sharp objects puncturing the box and canvas during the move.

  4. Packing Tape the box well and mark "Fragile - Art." All done now!

Sculptures

  1. You'll need a box at least one-third larger than the size of your sculpture and bubble wrap.

  2. Fill one-third of the box with Styrofoam peanuts. Wrap the sculpture with bubble wrap, put it in upright, and then fill in all around and on top with peanuts. Your piece of art should be nestled in the center without touching the sides of the box.

  3. Packing Tape the box and mark "Fragile - Artwork" clearly on the outside. That's it!
