CARING FOR YOUR ART WORK

PAINTINGS & PRINTS

Your new art work should be positioned so that it is not in direct sunlight or in a room that has significant temperature changes throughout the day. These conditions create a glasshouse effect and condensation may form on the inside of the surface of the glass. This condensation may harm the artwork.

PRINTS

If your artwork arrives in a tube it is important to flatten it out and weigh it down with a flat, heavy object (preferably as big as the paper) as soon as possible.  Weight this down with the tissue paper provided, still intact to provide maximum protection.  To ensure optimal protection take to the framers as soon as it has flattened out.

PRINT FRAMING-GLASS RECOMMENDATIONS:

To ensure longevity of your chosen print UV or Museum quality glass or perspex is recommended.

CLEANING GLASS

 Spray a small amount of non-ammonia based glass cleaner on a microfibre cloth and wipe in a circular motion. With a dry section of the cloth, wipe the surface dry. Void spraying cleaner directly onto the glass.

CLEANING PERSPEX

Dusty surfaces can be cleaned with warm water, non-abrasive dishwashing liquid and a soft cloth or sponge.  Avoid rubbing the surface dry at all costs.
