Packing & Shipping

November 17, 2009 | 1 Comment |


Getting there. It’s important. How you do this is a sign of professionalism.

Imagine. Your work is great. Your prints are great. Your mats are great. Your frames are great.  Your presentation and follow up materials are great. But, you ship it all in a thin cardboard box that looks like it was put together by a serial killer. You use a cheap delivery service, so, after having gone missing for several days, your work arrives late. The damp remains smell like they’ve been chainsmoking and they look like they’ve been stepped on by an elephant. Everything is damaged – including your professional relationships and your reputation. After all the care you put into your work, it looks bad and so do you. You’ll have to absorb additional expenses. You just made more work for yourself and for the person receiving your work. Your exhibit is in now in a state of crisis. Your customer is dissatisfied. You may lose the opportunity or the sale you just made. What can you do to avoid this?

1 Pack your work professionally.
2 Use a professional shipping service.

  • For the past 3 days I have been trying to download the rest of this article on packing and shipping, but to no avail. I have even tried to log into JPC’s website page of downloads and still cannot find or download any article. I have changed my password about 4 times now to gain access and each time the system doesn’t recognize the new password. Help – I would really like to be able to print out the packing and shipping article along with many of his others great downloads. Thanks for your help, Ryn Clarke
