Hey guys,



Just a quick question, when you are getting larger prints done like 8x10 or a 12x18, what do you use to transport them safely?

thankyou much,

Chrissch

Up do 8x10 I'll do myself (unless I want a buch)

Bigger than that its up to the vendor to package them properly.

yeah i see what you mean but where i get them done all they give me is a flimsy envelope.. and if there is any wind when i take them outside to the car I get blemish in the photo.. I guess I can just manufacture something out of cardboard

I have a nylon art-carry bag I got at a photo store; they had several sizes, but mine holds prints up to A3+ size. It has a velcro flap and shoulder strap. Check out art supply stores in your area.

I agree with Norm, this is what I've been looking into.
Unfortunately, some of them are *way* more expensive than they should be. Really bugs me.

So watch out for the ones that have immitation leather outsides - but then charge you like its real leather. :(

Another way to do it that is very cheap is what I do some times.
Get two pieces of foam core, put tissue paper between them and spring loaded clips to hold them together. Put the paper bewteen the tissue paper, put the whole thing inside the clipped phone core and you're done. Not very good looking, and kinda clunky. But it works.
