Packing case study - Soldiers

Sometimes the best form of packing is a little as possible...

We were asked to pack and ship a piece of delicate artwork made from plastic soldiers and wood. The piece was already secured to a base, so our priority was to ensure that the artwork would not catch on any of the internal packing. For this reason, we used high density foam blocks to secure the base of the artwork inside a double-walled cardboard box. This box was then packed inside a well-marked wooden crate to ensure the item was afforded maximum protection in transit.

A crucial element of any succesful packing job, is to consider the experience from the point of view of the person unpacking the item when it arrives safely at its destination. In this instance, we made sure they could clearly see which elements needed to be removed before the artwork could be removed from the carton. If we'd used a soft packing material such as tissue paper, not only would it would have not held the sculpture securely, but upon removal, the paper might have snagged on the artwork, causing damage.
