Print Care

Although all of my prints are printed using highest quality archival materials and equipment, due to of its dense nature, ink is prone to show fingerprints and potentially scuff. In order to keep the print in pristine condition, try not to remove the print from its sleeve or package until you are ready to frame it. Please wear gloves and be very careful to only handle the edges and avoid touching the ink on the surface. To best re-flatten the print after being shipped in the tube, first find a clean, flat surface. Gently unroll your print, and be sure to keep it completely covered by its sleeve or packaging paper. Carefully place a board or a large book over the entire surface and be mindful not to catch the edges or corners. Let it sit for 24 hours. If after that time the print is still slightly curled, leave it for an additional day. At this point it should be flat enough to frame with ease.

As always, the sunlight has powerful UV forces that can fade an image no matter it’s archival quality. It’s best to avoid hanging your framed image in direct sunlight. If you’d like extra protection, consider framing it with UV protected glass or plexi.

Voila! Now enjoy your print for years to come!
