I'm moving to a new city and was wondering how to best pack several frames to safekeeping on the move.

buy two rolls of bubble wrap. one that is the small bubbles and 24" wide and a roll that is the large bubbles, 12" wide. use the large roll to do an initial wrap around the frame. use the large bubbled roll to protect the corners and edges.

im in prep of a move and doing the same thing.

for my much larger frames, i have boxes for, but will also wrap them prior.

these are some semi smaller frames. 12x24 prints. frames are maybe 15x27. being small, im also throwing them inside a spliced box. all depends how big they are and how paranoid you are about keeping them save. if you can, definitely put them in a box. otherwise, definitely make sure you protect the edges and glass.
