The Anatomy of My Art Crates

Shipping is an essential part of doing business as an artist and protecting the artwork for travel is my number one concern. When I ship an original painting to a show, gallery or collector, I always use a custom wood crate to protect the artwork. The photos below show the crates I use to protect the artwork on it's journey. The company that builds and supplies me with the crates, VEVEX, offers me quick turn-around and delivery which makes it easy for me to order my crates on demand as needed.
