Art Handling Supplies For Those Who Handle Art

Started by art handlers for art handlers and anyone who needs the right supplies to safely handle art, Tradecraft Supply sources only products that we use and believe in.  Tradecraft Supply grew out of our sister company Tradecraft Crating, a full service art handling, crating, and fabrication shop based in Chicago.  In our hunt to stock our art handling crews with the best supplies, we kept thinking wouldn't it be great if there was a site dedicated to our needs.  So Tradecraft Supply was born.  From the original German made Floreat picture hangers to our custom manufactured tube sets, we wanted to make it easier to find the supplies that we use everyday.  

We will be continuing to add new products - let us know if there is something you'd like for us to carry.  And if you know of a better product than what we are offering, we'd love to test it out. Not sure how to use a product or which is best for your situation - send us an email at  We are here to help.

Keep it level,
Pete & Jeff
