Need to send art or artwork? Pak Mail Indianapolis has been offering our services to artists, galleries, museums and auction houses since 1997. We provide personal service to our clients including custom packaging, crating and shipping these items with special care. We know that family heirlooms and works of art are precious and deserve the most attention for the safest delivery. We spare no packing material or technique because we understand what packages endure during the shipping process.
Our packaging technique for framed or unframed art and artwork involves several steps. Any item containing glass, such as framed art and pictures, receives a layer of glass mask to protect the print, photograph or artwork that lay underneath and layer of scratch preventative called furniture wrap is applied. Furniture wrap is a combination of thick tissue paper and wrap designed to prevent abrasion and scratching. It is used primarily for fine wood and critical finish surfaces. Next is a layer of styro-board that is sized and applied using stretch-wrap around the piece to withstand any mishandling event that might occur. The piece is surrounded with a double-walled corrugated container or a crate. We have in-stock picture boxes for the most common artwork sizes but we are prepared to build any size double-walled corrugated container or crate necessary. Lastly, the space left between the carefully wrapped artwork and container is filled using packing peanuts. Nothing should be loose when finally packed for shipment.

- Delicate china and glassware from an estate,

Hi Drew, I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful wrap job. The taxidermy item arrived. I love it when someone takes their job seriously and actually cares about their customers (don't always see that these days).
Hi, Drew! I received all four items from Ripley's in perfect condition and so well-wrapped I've saved the materials! (I"m moving within CT in the next month.) I just want to take a moment to thank you for your thoughtful and careful packaging. Over the years, I've bought a lot of items at auction, and while one expects a fair amount of the total cost will be in shipping, one also hopes and prays for a great job. You did it, and that cements our working relationship! I will not hesitate to buy more at auction from Ripley's because I know they have a great shipper--you.
Thanks so very much.
I received the fossil shipment today intact with no problems; just in time for Christmas! Thanks again for ensuring it was secured for the journey and for the fast dispatch! Han Drew….I don’t think I ever let you know we had received the hutch. Thank you so much for taking the time to pack it so carefully. It arrived beautifully!
Thank you very much for your excellent packing. I received my sewing cabinet in excellent condition! It made the truck journey across the country and the boat ride up the InsIde Passage without harm. I am very pleased with your service.
