Can anyone tell me how to properly package and ship flat artwork? Thanks, Erika

Well, that depends on whether it's an oil, a watercolor, a drawing, a sculpt, or what.

For prints, drawings, pastels, chalk/charcoal, watercolor, I use a wax like paper you can get at your framers. I then roll them and put them in a tube. Reverse roll them, though. They also have these nice wax-like paper tubes you can slide over the whole thing, but I let my framer do the shipping for me, so I'm not sure what he does.

For oils, I never send them unframed, so I don't know. The framed paintings are shipped in wooden crates by special carrier.

I mean if you don't roll them up, just leave them flat...
