Handle & Care
Handle your giclee print with extreme care to avoid damage.
Always handle by the border, rather than touching the printed surface.
Ideally, wear gloves to keep skin oil and dirt off the print. The papers used for printing are coated with a special emulsion to encapsulate the inks. This emulsion will scratch if handled roughly.
Fine art paper prints should always be framed behind glass or placed in mattes in a protective box or album. When framing a quality paper print, be sure to use a reputable framer who uses archival products that will assist in keeping your print looking good for generations to come.
Museum glass costs more but will increase the longevity of your print.
Hang your artwork away from direct sunlight or lights that emit a lot of UV.
