Less than £2.50 each. Can't beat it can you ?

Try Zenap Picture Framers in Fethiye. He is very good and really cheap.
For future reference polystyrene boxes are really good to use for sending goods abroad.  I used nothing else. They are very light and very strong.  If you have a container of goods, get a big roll of bubble wrap from Ebay and some poly boxes for anything breakable.  After 25 years in the antiques business, shipping items all around the world and in particular to Australia.  I found poly boxes the best and never used anything else.

Problem is, Jaqui, when they open/unwrap it all and then don't rewrap it once they've checked the contents..... Can't legislate for that, sadly.  :(

Yes, understand that, but I always found them the best for my business and had very few breakages.  Also, if you send one on it's own, it's much cheaper than a cardboard box as it is a lot lighter.
We are lucky to have a Factory near us that make them for the Fishing Industry.  They are good enough to sell one or twenty, just what you might need.

Yep - all our stuff was removed from its bubble wrap and put back in the box unwrapped  >:(
It's like they do it for fun !
But all pics/paintings are now re-glazed and hung and we are happy (if poorer) bunnies   :)

There will likely be no less than £ 3 each
