Fed-ex has 2 different size boxes specifically for shipping art that are pretty slick.

Another possibility is to sandwich the work between 2 or more pieces of thick styrofoam insulation available at home improvement stores, cut to fit your box.

I've seen professionals ship large gallery wraps by making a container from 3 layers of 2" thick insulating foam, the middle layer cut to hold the piece, and all 3 held together by taping around the ends.

Ernesto's cautions are worth taking heed - I'm quite sure UPS uses potato guns to move packages around their facilities.

Shipping art can be a real pain - and rolled in a tube is certainly the most stable and economical way to go, although as you say, not the best presentation.
