Also put a folded tab on the end of any piece of tape you use.

Yup, a nice touch.
Especially if it’s folded on the end that guides the tape to be removed easily without ripping up the craft roll...

Excellent advice, makes for opening the kraft paper easier, I like to use the blue painters tape.

Flip the poster over onto a flat surface, picture side up, and roll up the poster as tightly as you possibly can.

Totally agree with the folded tape tab comment. That should be an industry standard.

I’ve used this technique before as well, along w/ some of the other tips above about craft paper size and adjusting that roll to the tube dimensions.

Ironically, I think I read about this same technique u describe in a book called the art of sex about 20 yrs ago. They just swapped out the word poster for partner... :rolling:

Thick craft paper is a must.
Been getting damaged poster edges from people thinking tissue -thin craft paper is going to protect the print.
It doesn’t.
Also cramming objects in the ends is a hack move.
It may work occasionally, but it’s a disaster waiting to happen.
Especially if you are cutting it close with craft that doesn’t extend 3+” past the edges of the print.
Should I be using a 4”x30” tube to ship 18x24s?
