Secrets to Shippping Art WebCast

Web Broadcast | Secrets of Shipping your Art | Part 2 - Sculpture and other 3D Art
Join us for a Webinar on Tuesday December 7
Space is limited.
Reserve your Webinar seat now at:
This is a continuation of our series on shipping artwork. If you missed last week's broadcast on shipping paintings you can watch a video of the broadcast.

Shipping art is work, but it doesn't have to be torture. You may not know it, but I started out in the art business almost twenty years ago shipping for a gallery in Scottsdale. Over the years I have shipped, or been involved in shipping, thousands of works of art. During that time I've learned a thing or two.  Tuesday evening, December 7th,  I am giving a free broadcast where I will share everything I know about shipping sculpture, glass and other perilous artworks.

This broadcast will include information on

The supplies you need and where to get them
Critical tools and how to use them
Safely packing 3D artwork
Which carrier you should use
A dirty secret I learned about shipping large sculpture

I will also leave time for a question and answer period so I can answer your burning questions about shipping your sculpture.

The broadcast is free, but attendance is limited, so sign up today.

What have you learned through your experience shipping sculpture, glass, pottery, etc? Do you have tips or tricks you've learned, perhaps through painful experience? Email me ( and I just might share your tips during the broadcast. Your subject line should read "Shipping 3D Tips".

See you Tuesday December 7!
