13/03/2017 – Lately I had good nose in my shopping. As Cyrano: says  « It’s a cover … it’s useful… it’s a bag! What do I say, it’s a sleeve? … it’s a good case! »

But Curious? How to use it? « 

Do not you see where I want to go with my outburst? I will explain it in the following text.

.

  • 1/ An Artist’s idea

Do you know that every year 150,000 rolls of bubble wrap (if not more) are used in the art world. It is huge, massive, and dramatic!

In 2009, the Dutch artist Yolanda Philippens found a new concept with BIYOMAP Protective Sleeves. She was looking for a solution to reduce these massive piles of bubbles wrap at each art fair and she had the idea to create BIYOMAP!

In search of environmentally friendly solutions, I took a close interest in BIYOMAP. Reusable and space-saving packaging for paintings and all framed artworks, BIYOMAP replaces bubble wrap and protects the paintings during storage or transport.

.

2- BIYOMAP | Key features

  • Dutch brand.
  • Lightweight, sturdy polyester fabric , not waterproof.
  • Acid free fabric, dust and lightproof, scratch resistant.
  • Micro-perforated fabric that prevents mold
  • Sleeves available in 10 sizes according to colour
  • 2 openings (top + side) for very large sizes
  • Velcro fastening, seam finish.

 

3- IN MY STUDIO

3 of my paintings have been selected for a photo shoot not far from where I live. It is up to me to bring them and get them to the photographer’s studio.

Because I shop at GreatArt, I have the option to try BIYOMAP, I chose foam corners and 3 sleeves (2 red 35’’x43” and 1 yellow 35”x27”).

.

If we compare the materials necessary for 3 paintings, we can very quickly see differences.

.

4- DEMONSTRATION

For each sleeve, I make my own label with an A4 sheet (logo, picture of the painting, title and size) and I slip it into transparent window for important information.

So I’ll pack my first painting. (I thank the « Lovely Monroe » for accompanying me with this demonstration.)

 

After using foam corners on the four corners of the painting, I slip it into the sleeve (Photos above). I close with the flap with velcro strips.

And voilà, it’s packed! The painting is now ready!

.

5- USE & REVIEW

  • Easy and ready to pack and unpack.
  • Easy storage, protection of artworks in 2D (studio) and travel (galleries, exhibitions, photoshoots).
  • Do not stick to varnished surfaces like bubble wrap can.
  • Possibility of placing 2 painting in 1 sleeve back to back.
  • Clever transparent window to include a label, flyers or business cards
  • Space-saving when the sleeve is empty because it folds, rolls and stows easily.
  • 100% recyclable and made with 50% recycled material
  • Contributes to the reduction of waste on the planet (eco-friendly)
  • Much more presentable and elegant than bubble wrap.

To conclude, I love it!

The 3 paintings are packed in the same way in their protective sleeve … Go, it’s photo shoot time!

6- GOOD TO KNOW

BIYOMAP protective sleeves can be used for mailing or shipping but be careful, it is not enough to protect effectively.

This kind of envelope replaces bubble wrap only, so always add foam corners, a thick cardboard box or a wooden box to face risks during shipping. Think about it!

    Bonjour Amylee,

    Merci pour cet introduction d’un produit qui semble pratique, efficace et présentable.

    Petite question: j’ai regardé sur leur site web pour les dimensions et je me demandais si ma toile format 120 x 160 cm avec les protections biyosafe sur les coins, irai dans leur biyomap 130×160 cm ? Est-ce qu’il y a une petite marge ou est-ce réellement 160 cm max. ?

    Vous les avez déjà utilisés?

    Salutations artistiques

    @Isapops: pour le côté qui fait 160cm, je crains que cela soit trop juste avec les coins mousse. Les dimensions indiquées sur la housse sont vraiment celles de la housse.
    Après on peut toujours prendre 2 housses pour n’en faire qu’une grande. Le velcro permet de lier 2 housses entre elles.
