How to Reuse the Packaging from our Custom Frames

What should I do with all this packaging? Simply put: reuse or recycle. The materials that we use to package our products for safe shipment can be easily reused around the home or studio, or they can be recycled.

Here are some suggestions:

1. Reuse the box.  If your art is traveling to another destination for a show or exhibit, our packaging will protect it from damage.  You can also give the box to a customer who needs a safe way to get their new purchase home. 

2. Cover surfaces while working.  The corrugated boards are perfect for protecting your table and picture frame from scratches or dings while framing.  The boards and box (if broken down) are also great for shielding floors from messes (while painting or doing other work around the home).

3. Use for school projects and holiday activities.  Craft projects often call for sturdy, flat surfaces, so slide the sheets of cardboard behind a bookcase or dresser or even under the bed, and pull them out when the next diorama comes along.  Or how about a base for a gingerbread house?

4. Make signs and display boards.  The large, sturdy sheets make great garage sale signs, birthday banners or tack boards for temporary exhibits, such as art shows.  Covered in decorative paper (e.g. wrapping paper, craft paper) they can be transformed into almost anything.

5. If nothing else, our packaging is easy to break down and put into your recycling. If you can’t reuse it, recycle it!

Valerie,

Haha! I guess that is one other use for the bubble wrap.

Can I use the bubble wrap for recreational popping?
