Any suggestions on the best way to protect canvas wraps while transporting for shows? I've seen corners, but I can't seem to find any.

I'm using some pretty clever fabric corners joined by elastic material so they wont fall off. They are called artgarters and were available from a .com address by that name. I just went there though and things dont seem to be kosher there anymore. Perhaps the site has lapsed? I dont know. Some digging may be required.

If you are shipping canvas prints that have been coated, it’s best to wait 24 hours before packing them to allow the coating to cure. If you are packing your prints in a plastic bag or sleeve, be sure to use plastic made from polypropylene. This type of plastic is flexible and strong, so it’s difficult to tear. If it is a gallery wrap you are shipping, using cardboard corner protectors will prevent the corners of the frame from damage. You can find the "Corrugated Corner Protectors" from companies such as Uline.
