    Softening the blows of a typical package in transit
I'm a firm believer that rigid, hard materials shouldn't be used for packing breakable items.

After almost 30 years in the Art Business, I've had my fill of badly thought out packaging; one too many gilt-framed old paintings arrive at the gallery with bits and pieces of molding rattling around in the bottom of the crate.

You'd be surprised at the number of Art shippers that aren't aware that hard materials like plywood can transfer shock waves to the contents quite easily.

Harder, heavier and larger is not necessarily the best rule of thumb to use when designing packages.

A more resilient, softer material like corrugated cardboard is much less susceptible to an abrupt shock; the material compresses slightly on impact, deadening the blow and dissipating any jarring vibrations before the destructive energy reaches the precious contents.

Softer, lighter, smaller and stronger is the way to go here.

Corrugated cardboard is a really remarkable package engineering material and used with common sense and solid design techniques, articles can be packed faster, smaller, lighter, stronger.

and of course - at lower cost!
