I'm curious what you guys typically do to transport prints and/or originals home that you pick up at a gallery or show. Do you bring your own portfolio to carry them in, or do they usually wrap them in some transportable way?

For prints go with a foamboard sandwich(2 pieces of 30x40 foamboard and binder clips). It's easy for the gallery and it makes it easy for you to check your prints when you get home.

Get a tube, get some craft paper, have the guys at the gallery show you how to roll properly. Buy a couple cheap prints and practice.

I typically just fold them and stuff them in a backpack for safe keeping.

I typically just light them all on fire and shove the ashes into a fanny pack for easy transport.
