Let people know your work is valuable – even when you’re not there to tell them about it. Add a label. FRAGILE. Make it look official. Buy it preprinted. Or print it yourself. Or stamp it. Make it big. It’s a mandate not a disclaimer to be hidden in small text. Make it red. Red attracts attention. Put it on both sides of a package. Make sure no one can miss it.
If you want to go the extra distance, add a second label. HANDLE WITH CARE. It’s implied when you use ‘fragile’ but it never hurts to restate your case. People will pay attention. The whole point is to remind them to be considerate. It also sends a message to the people receiving your work. This is valuable.
