We are learning that our customers are often our best sales people :)

“I’ve moved hundreds of paintings through a multitude of environments—museums, galleries, auction houses, art fairs, private homes, and more. Each move or shipment always requires some element of packing customization, which is time-consuming and stressful, and, despite one’s best efforts, often only serviceable for that particular move. SMART-GUARD immediately removes these issues. The SMART-GUARD system makes it simple to quickly and safely pack and store nearly any framed or flat object, in packaging that is durable and, most importantly, reusable. If you move, ship, or store framed or flat objects on a regular basis, SMART-GUARD is a must.” -jn
