What are artwork bags used for?

When placing your artworks, prints and photos into an art gallery on consignment it is advisable that they are placed into artwork bags to protect them from handling, fingerprints, dust and moisture. If an artwork is damaged by scuffing or dirt nobody will be keen to buy it. Transpack is one of the leading suppliers of high clarity, top quality artwork bags that have a PH neutral film that will not react with inks, prints or paper and discolour art. Available in many sizes, view our website to find the right size for your requirements. If you need to store and protect your artworks then a bag is also advisable as it will keep the dust and damp off your artworks when properly sealed with the self-seal strip.

Why is it important for an artwork bag or photo bag to be PH Neutral?

Protecting and showcasing your artworks, prints and photos in artwork bags is vital to keep them from getting damaged during storage, handling and transporting. The bags need to be made from a PH neutral film which contains no harmful chemicals that may react with inks, paint or papers. Look for a bag that says "food safe" and usually these bags are PH neutral. Transpack sells a quality range of recyclable artwork bags, photo bags and greeting card bags.

How do I store artworks and prints?

We advise that unframed, mounted or unmounted arworks, prints and photos are stored in one of Transpack's artwork bags. Artwork Bags and Photo Bags protect your items from dust, damp, scuffing during handling and fingerprints. The re-usable self seal strip will prevent the art from sliding out of the bag and can be opened and closed several times.
