How should I handle my fine art prints?

Cassie Updated by Cassie

With love and care! That’s how we make them, on the best materials available. They’re precious, but with the correct care they can last a lifetime. All orders (except those dropshipped) will be accompanied by care instructions.

Key tips:

  • Frame your prints ASAP!
  • Keep prints in the protective archival sleeve or sheet until framed.
  • Keep handling to an absolute minimum.
  • When you have to handle prints, only touch the edges.
  • Never touch the printed area.
  • Use two hands to support your print so that it doesn’t bend. A crease in the print will be permanent.
  • Don’t use your hands to wipe off any dust. This can scratch the printed area.
  • Never blow on the print to remove dust. Even the tiniest amount of moisture can affect the paper.
  • If necessary you (or your framer) can use compressed air for dust removal.
  • Never place the print print-side-down on any surface. This will cause permanent scuffing.
  • Keep your print away from bright light and humidity.
