Transit boxes for picture frames

Post by Thyrsis » Tue 07 Jan, 2020 11:56 am

Hello, my usual supplier of excellent transit boxes has suddenly ceased trading.
I urgently need boxes (probably custom made) in a couple of sizes.
Any suggestions please?

Thanks Steve,

I've looked at them but the sizes are not that good for me. I've contacted them but not heard back yet....

Thanks but no, they are not long enough for our panoramic frames. This is why we have been using custom made boxes until now.
