Additionally, please visit UPS' website for suggested guidelines on packing and shipping of your artwork: http://www.ups.com/content/us/en/resources/ship/packaging/index.html.
MCA's objective is to assure the safe arrival of your artwork and its safe return to you. You can help MCA achieve this goal by observing a few basic principles in packaging your artwork. Please note that if MCA finds it necessary to use a new container or added packing material to protect your piece during reshipment (due to failure of following the UPS packing suggestions), the cost will be passed on to you.
