    You need to send it by Registered Mail.

    Costs you about 7.50 but everyone that handles that package has to log in and sign for it all the way from A to B. At each transfer point it is locked in a postal safe, signed in and signed out.

    I have experience shipping art and selling on Ebay...

    I take a picture like that and I wrap in in bubble wrap in both directions. I secure that bubble wrap to itself with packing tape. This creates a cocoon around the frame. Of course do not let the tape make contact with the frame, glass or picture. If the frame is of special value I will wrap the frame and picture in brown packing paper first like a christmas gift and then wrap that in the bubblewrap cocoon. Then I get a box at least 6" larger than the picture on ALL side and I put the really large bubble, bubble wrap in the bottom, lay in the picture roll some up on each side and the lay some on the top. This creates and almost inpenetrable barrier from droppage and minor crushing of the box. I have successfully shipped lots of art this way and have only had ONE item get broken and that was because of catastrophic damage by the shipper. Hope this helps
