  1. Suspend the lamp or shade in a box with soft packing material.
  2. The inner box size should be at least 2" larger than the lamp or shade on all sides.
  3. Then suspend the inner box inside another box with soft packing material.
  4. The outer box should be at least 2" larger than the inner box on all sides.
  5. Pack ONLY THE CORNERS of the outer box. That keeps the inner box centered inside the outer box.
  6. Tiffany & slag glass shades should have the dome cavity filled to overflowing with soft packing materials.
  7. All glass panels should be secured with MASKING TAPE NOT CLEAR TAPE.
  8. Boxes should be packed so that light pressure is required to close the top lids.
  9. Seal all 6 seams of both boxes with clear tape.
