How to care for your print
Here are some tips to ensure your prints last for many years to come.
• Handle your print carefully by the edges and use two hands to support.
• Do not touch the print surface with your fingers or hands, this could scratch the surface, acidic oils from your skin can damage the print as slowly stains the paper over many years.
• Never allow liquids of any kind to come in contact with a print.
• Only acid-free, archival materials should come in contact with the front/back of the print.
• Framing under glass or acrylic provides the greatest protection against fading from UV light and ozone. We recommend you use Non reflective UV glass such as UV70 (TruVue UltraVue 70% UV protection).
• Avoid hanging or storing your print in direct or extremely bright indirect sunlight.
• Keep your unprotected prints (before framing) away from sources of ozone, such as monitors and TVs, air purifiers and avoid stacking anything on top of the print.
• Avoid excessive temperature and humidity extremes
• Avoid pinning/hanging/attaching unprotected (not framed) prints on the wall. Chemicals in wall paint, especially solvents, might damage the print (yellowing).
• If your print will be framed without a mount, ensure that spacers are used so that the print does not touch the glass.
