This article outlines the packaging methods used for different product categories to ensure damage-free shipping and customer satisfaction. We are committed to using the most efficient and damage-resistant packaging for all our products. Our packaging methods comply with local shipping requirements and are designed to minimize damage during transit.

Packaging for Different Products

We use a variety of packaging methods depending on the product type and destination country. Here's a breakdown of our packaging methods for different product categories:


  • Standard Packaging:

    • Posters up to A4 size are shipped flat (up to 100 posters per package).

    • Posters larger than A4 are shipped in tubes (up to 5 posters per tube).

  • Exceptions:

    • Tube with shipping roll: Used in DK, DE, NO, CH, FR, UK, AU, SG, NL, BE, AT.

    • Triangular/rectangular boxes: Typically used in the US, Canada, and Brazil.

Frames and Framed Posters

  • The frames come pre-packed with corners and film and then packed in a box with strong edges to protect the frames.

  • I-beams are used in addition, to give the package additional sturdiness and for multi-item orders (max 2 frames in one package).

  • Posters are packaged separately in an inner paperboard folder (up to 10 posters per folder).

  • Plexiglass used in frames may have a protective film on both sides, often with a blue hue. This film can be mistaken for scratches, bubbles, or a colored cast.


Canvas, Acrylic/Metal Prints

  • These items are packaged in boxes with strong edges for protection.

  • Bubble wrap or craft paper is used for additional protection.

  • Acrylic prints have a protective film on the front, which can vary in color (milky, green, or blue). This film might be mistaken for damage, but it's meant to protect the print.




  • Packaging may vary by country.

  • Single mug orders are typically packaged as shown below.

  • For multiple mug orders, each mug is packaged individually and placed in a larger cardboard box (up to 6 mugs per box).


Apparel/Tote Bags

  • Smaller orders: Items are shipped in a satchel (material may vary) without tissue paper to minimize waste.

  • Larger orders (8+ T-shirts): Items are shipped in cardboard boxes and may be wrapped in tissue paper or bags for protection.
