Guide to Ensuring The Longevity of Your Prints

Your print from The Stackhouse Printery is a valuable piece of art that will last for more than a century with proper care.

This is our guide to handling, displaying, and caring for your prints so they last for generations.

Handling Your Prints

  • Use Clean Hands or Gloves: Always use clean and dry hands or cotton gloves to prevent damage from fingerprints, scratches, oil, dirt, and moisture when handling your prints. 

  • Hold Prints Correctly: When holding unframed prints, avoid touching the printed surface by holding them by the edges and supporting them from beneath.

Displaying Your Prints

  • Avoid Direct Sunlight on Prints: Direct sunlight can cause fading over time, so it's best to choose a location to store or display your print that is out of direct sunlight.

  • Use UV Protective Glass For Frames: If you are framing your print, consider using UV-protective glass to safeguard your art against light damage.

  • Climate Controlled the Environment: Extreme temperatures and humidity can adversely affect your print, so storing and displaying your artwork in a stable, moderate climate-controlled environment is the best idea. You may also want to consider using a dehumidifier in humid climates.

Caring for Your Prints

  • Dusting Your Prints: Dust your prints regularly using a soft, dry, lint-free cloth. Never use cleaning products or water on your prints.

  • Clean Frames: If your print is framed, clean the glass with a glass cleaner, but be careful not to let the cleaner seep under the edge of the frame onto the print.

  • Check Your Prints Regularly: Regularly check your prints for any signs of mold, discoloration, or other damage, especially if they are in a humid environment.

Your prints are meant to be enjoyed for a lifetime and beyond. With these tips, you'll ensure that your artwork remains vibrant and intact for years.
