HANDLING AND DISPLAYING PRINTS

FLATTENING PRINTS

Due to the heavy quality of Archival Print Paper, prints will need to be flattened once removed from their protective sleeves and mailing tubes. It is best to have the print flattened by a professional framer when the print is being framed. However, if you are considering flattening the print yourself, please consult a professional framer.

HANDLING PRINTS

To prevent your prints from being soiled or prematurely degraded, make sure to wash your hands well before handling them. Handle prints only by the edges and never touch the area on which the image is printed.

HANGING PRINTS

• Exposure to intense sunlight can fade prints, so it is recommended that you display prints out of direct sunlight.
• If wanting to hang a print in a sun exposed area, use UV filtering acrylic plexiglass to when framing your piece.
• Do not place your print in a space with high humidity (such as in a bathroom).
