When you’ve spent countless hours creating a piece of art that you’re incredibly proud of; preparing the work for shipping can be a daunting time. Nobody wants to receive the devastating news that their artwork has sustained serious transit damage or been completely destroyed on its way to a client, a gallery or exhibition. That’s why it makes sense to upgrade to art grade cardboard postal tubes when sending original or valuable art work out through Royal Mail, a courier or any other national mail service.
Our premium quality Art Grade postal tubes are trusted by thousands of artists, art dealers, museums & art galleries in our home market here in the U.K., but also Europe, the USA, Australia & many parts of Asia.
To qualify as Art Grade our round cardboard postal tubes or poster tubes measuring 50mm / 2" diameter or below must have a wall thickness of 3mm. Tubes with wider diameters must have 4mm walls to provide the levels of protection required for protecting original art.
Many of our customers have found us after using poor quality tubes from other suppliers that are wholly unsuitable for shipping art & some not even sufficiently robust to risk sending a cheap poster. Rest assured that once you’ve started using Art Grade spiral wound tubes, most of your shipping anxieties will quickly disappear.
If you are planning to post out your art and want to discuss how best to protect it in a postage tube during transit, simply give us a call & we will be happy to offer advice.
