How do you ship posters?

Kind of a stupid question but I have a few Tyler Stout Posters

And moved in with my gf so need to have less “nerdy” fudge haha.

Like I had some idiot send me an Inglorious Basterds poster a few years back and it did not have both sides of the poster container. So for cheaping out on a new poster container the guy lost $600 I paid on eBay.

Any way my posters are framed. Is it better to just do it local?

To ship them framed? Did you frame them or were they professionally done?

if you want to ship it framed, get a large flattish box like the one furniture (requiring assembly) comes in, and use a LOT of bubble wrap to make sure the glass is well protected. Honestly, you’re probably better off selling the prints unframed so you can just use a tube.

From a buyer perspective, I wouldn't buy anything expensive that is already framed. There's so much inconsistency with different framers and techniques, I would want to inspect the print outside of the frame to verify condition.
