9 handy sizes.
Add at least 15cm (6 Inches) to the size of your frame to find the correct bag size for your painting. Please note, due to the handmade nature of the bags there may be a 2-3cm (1 inch) size variation either way. Consider this when measuring. The bag measurements are the external size of the bag. The width is the opening end. Your artwork should slide easily in and out of your bag. If in doubt, go bigger and fold the excess over for added cushioning. Read the SIZE GUIDE for more information.
No, our bags are not designed to be carrier bags, they are artwork sleeves / pouches. You simply slide your artwork into the bag. Any excess length folds over at the top to close the bag and to create even more protection for your artwork when stored, packed or transported.
1. The easiest way is to fold the top over.
2. If you choose to use adhesive tape on your bag, only use low tack painters tape, so as not to damage the surface of the bag when the tape is removed. Low tack painters tape is available at any hardware store.
3. Do not use standard packaging tape, the adhesive is too strong and could damage the surface of the bag when removed. However, this won’t change the functionality or strength of the bag in any way, only the appearance.
Not at all. The bags are super lightweight. Made from strong, high tech materials. Very easy to carry, store and move around.
Paccabags will do that for you. They were made to keep your paintings safe. Transport your artwork around with confidence. Great for art fairs, galleries and exhibitions. The eco-friendly alternative to bubble wrap and no plastic waste.
If you need to pack your artwork in a box to freight away, then slide your paccabag into a slim box and send. A quick, easy and safe solution for busy artists, galleries and art handlers.
They are a sustainable alternative to bubble wrap. You can use them over and over again. They won’t tear or create single-use plastic waste. They look professional and will save you a lot of time and money over the long term.
Imagine a reusable, reinforced, fat bubble wrap, that won’t tear. The bubble layer is made from 20% recycled LDPE plastic and sandwiched between multiple layers of strong high tech materials, making the bags shock-absorbent and hardwearing.
The initial cost of bubble wrap may be less, but it tears easily and the application is limited to one or two uses. Time is money, and wrapping with bubble wrap takes time. Paccabags are quick and easy to use, reusable and won’t tear. They are a good long-term, cost effective investment for your art practice or gallery.
They have a strong smooth internal lining that reduces snagging. We suggest you give heavily textured work a bit of extra room to move when ordering your sizes.
