The basic idea is to suspend the lamp/shade in the inner box.
Then suspend the inner box in the outer box.

  • Using two (2) strong boxes: 1 inner box and 1 outer box.
  • The inner box size should be at least 2" larger than the lamp/shade.
  • The outer box should be at least 2" larger than the inner box on all sides.
  • Use a minimum of 4" of soft packing material in bottom of inner box.
  • Center the lamp/shade in the inner box and pack around it with soft packing material.
  • Tiffany & slag glass shades should have the dome cavity filled to overflowing with soft packing materials.
  • Glass panels should be secured with masking tape NOT CLEAR TAPE.
  • No part of the lamp/shade should come within 2" of the inner box walls.
  • With 2" of soft materials in the bottom of the outer box, place the inner box in the outer.
  • Center the inner box in the outer box by packing the corners of the outer box.
  • PACK CORNERS ONLY BETWEEN THE INNER/OUTER BOXES.
  • Leave empty space on the sides between the inner/outer boxes.
  • No part of the inner box should come within 2" of the outer box wall.

Boxes should be packed so that light pressure is required to close the top lids.
Seal all 6 seams of both boxes with clear tape.
