Print Care

Thank you so much for your purchase and support.

I have taken a lot of care and thought in making sure that the materials and processes used throughout are long lasting and of archival quality, as well as sustainably sourced and consciously made. If you take into consideration these simple steps, then it will make sure that your prints stays in the best condition for as long as possible.

Caring for your Artwork

When handing any artwork, make sure you have clean hands. This is to avoid oil and dirt transfer.

The recyclable glassine paper wrapping your artwork is acid free to ensure archival protection. I recommend you keep the artwork between these sheets to keep it protected and dust free until it can be framed.

If your print has arrived rolled up, you can carefully flatten it (leaving it between the glassine sheets) under some heavy books. Alternatively you can ask your framer to unpackage it for you too.

Framing your Artwork

Framing your artwork is an excellent way of displaying and looking after your print. Ideally your artwork should be framed and displayed at room temperature and out of direct sunlight and high humidity. Acid free materials should be used for mounting and backing your artwork, and the artwork should not touch the glass. If you are in doubt, then it is best to seek help from a professional local framers.

A note about Linocuts

The paper I use for the linocuts are very thin and delicate. Due to the nature of how thin the paper is, it is natural to have small dents in the paper, although I try to avoid these areas when trimming the paper. Please avoid excessive handling to prevent further creasing of the paper.

I hope you enjoy your new artwork. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Make sure you tag me @bertandroxy on social media - I would love to see the where the artwork has ended up!
