Are you one of those artistic souls, that have paintings with a little bit of wall in your house? Yeah, we know what we said. Art is to be appreciated, so don’t feel guilty if you spend a little more on them. But what to do with it if you have to move? Packing is stressful even when it comes to regular stuff? But packing extra sensitive and expensive things like china and arts can be even more demanding. The best option to pack your arts are boxes, but how to choose the right boxes for your wall art? We are here to answer all of your questions.
How to pack your precious art?
Moving paintings and wall art is a very tricky and extremely difficult task, especially if you don’t have the proper experience or training. For starters, the canvas alone has little or no protection on its own. Therefore, to protect and preserve the integrity of the painting or artwork, it should be packed in a manner that will adequately protect it. And, if inadequately packed, a drop can cause damage to the frame. That’s why it’s so important to choose the right box!
Choose the right boxes for your wall art
When it comes to your wall art, no matter what it is, you want it to have extra protection. Sure, you can pack them like any regular item, but they won’t be so safe. Lucky for you, there are a lot of different boxes for that. You should just find the perfect one for your precious items.
Choose the right size
You should refer to your list of paintings and wall art before placing your order for art boxes. Logically, the box should be larger than the art. That we know. But have in mind that you should leave space for padding and wrapping material that will go around your painting. Add an inch or two to the height and width to accommodate cushioning as well.
Find appropriate material
Speaking of leaving the room for packing material, you want to make sure to use the best material to tuck in your art babies. And depending on the box, you’ll want to use different things. Here are some of the most important:
- bubble wrap
- painter’s tape
- packing peanuts
- packing paper
Special shipping boxes
These things are a little more expensive, but provide the ultimate protection for your wall art. There are companies that make boxes with double-wall carton construction and layers of shock-absorbing foam, for both framed and unframed wall art. And they are very simple to use – no tools needed.
Box it up!
Whatever box you choose, make sure to label your art boxes once packed. That way you’ll know to which of them you have to pay special attention to in the moving process. We hope we helped you with our tips on how to choose the right boxes for your wall art, and that you’re ready for some packing – yourself or with help from experts. Wrap it up!
