storage, display and framing

All works on this website are limited edition, fine art original prints, hand printed by the artist from the original block.

Storage: If your unframed print is not going to be on display, keep the artwork flat, stored horizontally (in a plan chest or a specially designed acid-free case, such as a Solander box). If you need to store framed artwork, make sure it is stacked vertically and the right way up

Display: If your print is to be on display, protect it from sources of damp, heat and direct light – natural and artificial – as any exposure to light harms media and paper. Particularly avoid south facing light, direct sunlight or displaying in a window. However, the harmful effects of light can be reduced by using glass with 99% ultra violet (UV) protection for framing, Museum or Conservation grade

Mounting & framing: Good quality framing will help preserve the longevity of your original print. When selecting a mount board, choose an acid-free mount and mat – either solid core 100% cotton board (known as ‘museum board’) which is the best quality mount board, or purified wood pulp board (known as ‘conservation board’). Use Museum or Conservation grade glass (or acrylic) with 99% UV protection, such as Artglass AR99 Museum anti-reflective glass, or Artglass 99 Conservation grade glass
