They Say Everything is Bigger In Texas!


Today Lola and I worked together to box up a very large print of Hershey and Snoop to send off to Austin. This repeat client did a Warhol style portrait with us years ago and was ready to change up the colors in her house with a new portrait in classic traditional warm tones. She went with the large 54 x 34 inch size.

I found these great extra large boxes at uline. They are for flat panel TVs. Usually we have to build a box for the larger prints out of two smaller boxes. This new box was rather pricey at $14.99 however it saved us a lot of time, and I think it is super strong. I am more than happy to pay an extra $10 on a box if I know it is going to be extra strong and save me 20 minutes of handling time. Yay!

Travel safe sleepy labs!

Hi Rebecca,
I follow your blog regularly, and I am thankful that you shared the tip about the large box from Uline. I had quite a headache with shipping some paintings over the holidays due to size. I'm curious as to what method of shipping you use? UPS was a headache with size limits. Thanks for your help!

I like fedex on the larger sized prints. Yes USPS has oversize fees and so does fedex at this huge size. It cost around $86 to ship this print ($50 of that was the over-size fee).
