Giclée Print Care
As with any valued fine art piece, it is recommended that this print be displayed in indirect lighting conditions and away from any contact with moisture. Using archival materials for mattes, backing, spacers, museum quality framing and UV protected glass/Plexiglas will add to the life of the print. The artwork should never directly touch the glass/Plexiglass.
Giclée Prints on Paper:
The paper of the print itself needs to be handled carefully to prevent absorption of oils and/or marks from fingertips. Be careful to avoid dents and creases, since these can be very difficult or impossible to remove later.
Giclée Prints on Canvas:
You can clean your canvas print with a dry, lint free cloth or soft brush. Our canvas prints are sealed with a water resistant coating, but please never use a wet or moist cloth to clean giclée canvas prints. When stretching the canvas, use rounded stretcher bars and reduce the amount of tension by 10% - 20%, depending on the relative humidity and temperature. This should reduce any sagging of the print in the future. Of course, changes in relative humidity and temperature can cause sagging, even to originals.
Please store your canvas or paper prints in an environment controlled area for both humidity and temperature. Ideal conditions would be 70 degrees and 55% humidity. High humidity can cause yellow blooming. Keep all giclée prints away from solvent-based materials such as oil paints and linseed oil, as the vapors can cause yellowing. Stretched pieces should be stored upright, not stacked, and all prints should be interleaved with paper dividers and never stored with any weight on top of them. Avoid tape coming in contact with the coated print as it can peel. This extra care given initially will allow you to enjoy your purchase for many years to come.
Giclée canvas prints may be enhanced if desired using acrylic or oil paints. If you desire to seal re-seal the print be sure to use a sealant spray that does not contain alcohol.
