How did you come up with the idea for this bag?
As gallery owners and frequent exhibitors in art fairs around the world, we would dread the packing and unpacking process of our artwork in bubble wrap. It was incredibly time consuming and wasteful to throw away all that bubble wrap after just one use.
We looked to other industries and followed their best practices for inspiration. artstrong bags blend the durability of the building insulation world (polyethylene double bubble) with the functionality of the shipping industry (reusable and resealable envelope design) with the technique of the garment industry (reinforced sewn edges and velcro strips) – all while keeping needs of the art world in mind.
After many prototypes, the artstrong bag was born and we’re sure it’s the most protective, luxurious solution for art enthusiasts!
What sizes do you offer? What if my artwork is larger than your largest standard size?
We offer 15 standard sizes ranging from 18” x 20” to 70” x 75” To allow for depth of frames, we recommend that you add 5” to the height and width of your work to determine which size bag you need. Should your need a larger size or a custom size, please contact us at email@example.com or 212-279-8550. Custom orders take 2 weeks to complete.
Can I order online and pick up from your showroom/retail store?
Yes. Our showroom/retail store is located at 547 West 27th Street, #510, New York, NY 10001.
My paintings are textured and heavy. Can I still use the artstrong bags?
Yes. The innovative fabric that lines the bag will not snag, flatten, or scratch your artwork. Think of it as snuggling up in your favorite blanket! The edges are reinforced with sewn on twill tape binding. Please remember that our bags are intended for use with 1 piece of art at a time.
I’m a gallery owner/museum and am interested in buying in bulk. Do you offer volume discounts?
Yes, please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for a preferred quote.
