This contains:

  • HOW TO: label a package
  • HOW TO: Create a package for artwork
  • HOW TO: Protect and cushion artworks
  • Protective Packaging - what I use
  • Types of packaging - inside the external packaging
  • External packaging
  • HOW TO: Ship your work to art exhibitions
  • HOW TO: Ship artwork internationally (coming soon)
  • HOW TO: Package and ship pastel paintings
  • PACKAGING: materials on Amazon
  • Parcel services - UK Based websites
  • UPS
  • FedEx
  • DHL
I'm going to be updating this in the very near future with a piece about what to do when shipping artwork to international exhibitions.

I'm very happy to update this site with any useful suggestions or links to useful blog posts (your own or ones you've read) and I invite you to add these either to the site using the feedback module Comments and Suggestion (anybody can comment) or by commenting below.

If you'd like to rate the site also, that's entirely up to you!

There are lots of very silly people who don't understand that Google is not stupid and that links posted to a Blogger comment are:

They continue to post spam comments - despite this blog using both word verification and moderation that states very clearly that no spam will be published.

So I've SUSPENDED COMMENTING BY EVERYBODY but me. This allows past comments to still be seen.
