Hi

Can anyone recommend cost effective (i.e. cheap!), but decent packaging for posting canvases?

Thanks

Maggy

Hi Maggie
I use boxes from DCMK, http://www.dcmk.co.uk/acatalog/Packaging.html they're great value and offer great protection, I wrap the canvases in bubble wrap first, I've sent paintings all over the world and so far they've all arrived safely (touch wood)

Another option that I haven't actually tried myself are telescopic boxes from http://www.thepackagingstore.co.uk/products.asp?subcatid=303
Hope this helps
Shirley :D

Also on a green theme save all the cardboard when you buy your canvases then you can cut it to face canvases back and front,after Bubble wrapping ready for strong brown paper wrap.

Fabulous! Many thanks! I keep the packaging from canvas deliveries already, but it won't be enough! Thank you. :D

Local electronic stores sometimes let you have the large boxes they have for deliveries...it costs them money to dispose of it so you can but ask....more than enough for any canvas...have at it!
