Opinions Wanted shipping canvases


SGF, Supreme Grumble Framer
I will be shipping two crates of stretched canvases from MN to CA, via freight.
should I advise the recipient to have the acclimate to the CA environment before hanging?
If so how long???

(various sizes are between 60x36 and 36x36)

Before??? not after opening the crates???
Yes, before opening the crates. Opening the crates would speed up the process of acclimating, but the purpose of waiting is to allow the contents of the crates to acclimate as slowly as possible, to minimize the effects of the changing ambient conditions.

Once the canvases are removed from the packaging, you might as well hang them.
