Crating artwork for international shipping

To properly crate artwork is of utmost importance, especially for international shipping when there is a possibility of multiple persons, agencies, and airlines handling the package and even, at some point, opening it up for inspection. The artwork should be packed in such a way that, if opened by the Customs officer, it is visible and easy to check while remaining undisturbed and protected from any kind of damage. In the photo below you can see how to properly crate artwork for its safe international transportation.
