Denny, thanks for the suggestion. I will look into that.  

I  didn't state the size correctly. These are small prints matted to 11x14.

Dan, you might check with the gallery to see if they can provide framing,
possibly even temporary frames.  It might be cost effective and a lot easier
to ship.

If the prints are 11 x 14, what size are you framing them?  I've never
shipped glass any larger than 11x14, I've used plex for 16x20 and larger.

Subject: [Alt-photo] Framing and shipping prints for show.

I've got a show coming up in September in San Luis Obispo, CA and I live
near Seattle. All the other shows I've had were here in Washington and
driving to the site was not an issue.  This time either I need to make a
long drive to deliver and pick up my work or I need to ship it which I've
never done. There will be Twenty to twenty-four 11x14 prints.

I could use some advice on two issues.

First: I have always used glass with my frames but this time, if I ship
them, I'm considering acrylic to reduce weight and avoid breakage. Maybe
with UV protection but not the glare-free. any thoughts on this?

Second: Any recommendations on shipping?
