How To Care for Your Limited Edition Art Print: Essential Tips
1. Unroll it carefully: Use two hands to unroll the print slowly and gently. Avoid bending which will cause creases or wrinkles.
2. Flatten the print: Place the print on a flat surface with weights (books or cans) on the edges to flatten it. Leave it like that for a day or two to allow it to straighten out before framing.
3. Storage: If you need to store the print before framing, wrap it in acid-free tissue paper (or glassine) to prevent it from sticking or rubbing against other surfaces. Keep it in the tube provided, away from direct sunlight, heat, or moisture.
4. Avoid touching the print: Handle the print with clean hands or wear gloves while touching it. This will prevent dirt, scratches, or fingerprints from damaging the print.
5. Keep it dry: Please ensure that the print does not come in contact with water or any damp surface. Avoid hanging it in a bathroom or a humid room.
Once you have taken care of the above points, your print should be ready to frame!

How To Care for Your Original Painting: Essential Tips
1. Placement and Display:
- Choose an appropriate location for displaying your artwork, away from direct sunlight, extreme temperatures, and humidity.
- Avoid placing paintings near sources of heat, such as radiators or fireplaces, as it can cause damage over time.
- Hang paintings away from areas prone to moisture, such as bathrooms or kitchens, to prevent warping or mold growth.
- When handling a painting, make sure your hands are clean and dry to avoid transferring oils or dirt onto the surface.
- Support the painting from the bottom and sides while moving it to prevent stress on the canvas or frame.
- Avoid touching the painted surface directly, especially if it has a delicate or textured surface.
- Dust your painting regularly using a soft, clean brush or a dry, lint-free cloth. Gently brush or wipe the surface in one direction to remove dust particles.
- If there are stubborn stains or grime, consult a professional art conservator to avoid causing further damage. Never attempt to clean it yourself with water or cleaning agents.
4. Framing and Mounting:
- Consider framing your artwork to protect it from dust, UV rays, and physical damage.
- Use acid-free mats, backings, and UV-protective glazing materials while framing to prevent discoloration or deterioration over time.
- Ensure that the framing materials are not directly touching the painted surface to prevent any potential damage.
5. Environmental Conditions:
- Maintain a stable indoor environment with moderate temperature and humidity levels. Extreme fluctuations in temperature or humidity can cause damage to the artwork.
- Use a dehumidifier or humidifier if necessary to maintain a consistent environment, especially in regions with extreme weather conditions.
- Protect your artwork from direct sunlight or bright artificial light, as it can cause fading or discoloration over time.
Remember, every artwork is unique, and some may require specific care instructions based on the medium, style, or artist's recommendations. If in doubt, it's always best to consult a professional art conservator for personalized advice and assistance in caring for your valuable original art paintings.
