Packaging
We package all our shipments using best in class packaging material suitable for paintings to prevent damage and moisture during transit.

  • A sheet of butter paper is placed over the painting before rolling it.
  • A thin sheet of plastic wrap is used to cover to protect against moisture.
  • Finally, its packed in a tube and labelled.

General for Wall Art

  • Don’t keep the artworks in the packaging tube for long. Cracks might appear if they are kept rolled.
  • Keep them flat and ensure two paint surfaces don’t touching each other if two paintings are placed over each other.
  • Keep your artworks out of direct sunlight and moisture.
  • Use a soft rag, muslin cloth or a soft hair paint brush to dust your artworks to prevent dust buildup. Don’t use any cleaning solvents or water.
  • Wrap your artwork well if you plan to transport it. Hold the painting from the bottom. For mid to big size paintings two people holding is desirable.
Canvas Wall Art
  • Do not frame artworks on canvas under glass because canvas needs to breathe. If framed under glass, moisture may get trapped inside the frame.
  • For mid to large paintings do have extra supporting stretcher bars within the main frame. This gives extra support and avoids the frame to get twisted over time. Twisted stretcher can develop cracks in the artwork.
Artworks on Paper
  • Frame artworks on paper with non-glare glass. This not only protects your artwork from sunlight and dust but makes it easier to see the artwork surface when displayed.
  • The mat and backing of your frame should be made of acid free paper and finished with acid free tape. This is to avoid any moisture reaching your painting and damaging it.

Simple! Just email me the details of what kind of artwork you’d like and we can go into the specifics from their based on your needs/requirements.
If you don’t have anything specific in mind but want to decorate your space, I’d be able to suggest a few styles too.
