It’s the bag you never knew you always needed and the uses reach far beyond the art industry.
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 23, 2011
Frustrated by the arduous, repetitive task of wrapping and unwrapping each work of art in bubble wrap, ArtStrong Inc. has created the efficient, eco-conscious ArtStrong bag. This revolutionary bag satisfies the art industry’s needs for the ultimate packaging and storage solution while saving time and money, benefitting the environment and looking chic.
A classic example of where necessity is the mother of all inventions, ArtStrong bags blend the best practices of the art, building insulation and shipping industries. Providing 5x the protection of other bags, ArtStrong bags are made with 2 layers of polyethylene bubbles, shock-absorbing foam, brushed neo-technological fabric and all surrounded by a metallized film. The edges are bound in their signature orange twill tape creating the most durable bags in the marketplace.
Using the bags is as easy as 1-2-3. Open – Insert – Close.
“As gallery owners and frequent exhibitors of numerous art fairs around the world, we would dread the process of packing and unpacking for a show. Countless hours and rolls upon rolls of bubble wrap and tape would be used only to be thrown away as soon as the artwork was delivered. The amount of waste was abominable,” Mary Nguyen, Co-Owner of ArtStrong Inc., explained. “After a very long R&D process, we are confident that our bags will not only live up to the expectations and needs of the gallery owners, artists, and collectors alike, but will save you tremendous time and money. Protect what’s precious!”
“It’s the bag you never knew you always needed and the uses reach far beyond the art industry,” Nguyen said.
The main features are:
- Over 1 ½” of layered cushioned padding providing 5x the protection of other bags.
- Reinforced with sewn on binding.
- Reusable and resealable with industrial strength velcro.
- Resistant to extreme temperature, mold, and mildew.
- Reflective, eye-catching aesthetic.
Available in 15 standard sizes from 18” x 20” to 65” x 70”, the prices range from $30 to $150 retail. Customized sizes are also available for larger pieces of art.
