Our Story

In 2021 we set out to make it as easy as possible to send art using our amazing wooden crates. We quickly recognised that art lovers everywhere do not need or want more wooden crates.

You need something  lighter , something  smaller , and something that does not give your art collectors a crash course in European waste disposal laws.

So that is why have created the Artproof BOX – a cardboard box to keep your art safe and secure. The BOX weighs 75% less than a wooden crate, is easy to stock, easy to send, and most importantly –  easy to recycle .

  • Keep in mind!

    If the art piece is not protected with glass or another protective material, we recommend placing a soft layer (for example rice paper) on the surface of the image for protection, so that the cushions in the box do not scratch the surface of the image.

  • Easy to recycle.

    Each Artproof BOX is made from recyclable honeycomb cardboard and can be easily recycled. Just take it apart, cut to smaller pieces and throw it the nearest recycling bin.

Life of a BOX

  • The BOX arrives

  • Ship your art

  • Recycle the BOX

    Art receiver can easily take the BOX apart and recycle it.

  • Is the BOX as safe as a wooden box?

    In the event of a shock, an Artproof BOX offers even better protection than a wooden crate thanks to its shock-absorbing honeycomb panel structure. Artproof BOX resists short-term moisture in the same way as a wooden package, but this light package is not suitable for exposure to rain for a long time. If the package needs to stay in many warehouses before arriving at its destination, the wooden crate provides better resistance.

    In summary, we can recommend Artproof BOX packaging for transport where the transporter is aware of the movement of delicate items and where there is as little relocation as possible.

    We have tested Artproof BOX by sending glazed images between European countries using TNT and DHL service, and in 99% of cases, the image has arrived undamaged. However, in the case of transport chains with many repositories (trans-shipment), wooden crate is a better solution.

  • How much does the BOX cost?

    You can calculate the price of an Artproof BOX from our price calculator.

  • What are the maximum dimensions that can be sent using the BOX?

    At the moment you can pack artwork with a maximum size of 900 x 1400 mm.

  • Can I put several pictures in one BOX?

    At the moment we offer a solution where you can put a single piece of art in an Artproof BOX. But we are always evolving our design and you never know when a solution shows itself.

Have something special in mind? Feel free to contact us. It is perfectly fine to think outside the BOX.
