THE FINE ART OF PACKING
Art Packing & Crating
There is much more to a Meyer’s Fine Arts crate than meets the eye. The size of a piece, its condition, the number of works and transportation modes will determine the design and the selection of the packing crate. Each packing crate is custom hand-crafted to accommodate the artwork and assure safe and secure transportation.
Meyer’s Fine Arts cases are custom designed, engineered and constructed. Inherent artwork characteristics, exhibition complexity, travel duration, modes of travel and number of destinations are decisive factors in the type of packing crate selected.
For example, the interior of our unique packing crates are efficiently planned and solidly constructed to create a secure and controlled environment for your artworks in transit. The interior of the packing crate is constructed with polyethylene, glassine, ethafoam, foam rubber, jeweler’s cloth, felt and carpeting all adding a dimension of safety to the transportation process.
Your artworks arrive in perfect condition because Meyer’s craft persons take the time to analyze and implement a packing process that assures your works of art are treated with respect.
