Handling and Framing
When you receive your print you should immediately frame it, or store it in an archivally safe sleeve or container.
Handling your Print
When handling prints, hold the paper by the edges only - never touch the printed surface. Oils on your hands could transfer to the print, potentially degrading the quality. The print is reasonably resistant to scratches, but it is always best to handle it with care.
Storing your Print
If you plan to store your print, make sure to store it in an archival protective sleeve or an archival box (for storing more than one print). Prints that we ship flat will already come in an archival sleeve. You should keep this sleeve for storage. For prints that we ship in tubes you will need to purchase an archival sleeve or box. Prints should be stored flat, and may be stacked as long as there is an interleaving layer such as glassine, acid-free tissue, or protective sleeves. Store the print in a dark place away from sources of light.
Framing your Print
When framing your print, make sure to use all acid-free materials, and always choose glass or Plexiglass with UV filtering. Never hang your print where it will receive any direct sunlight.
