Framing

FRAMING INSTRUCTIONS - HOW TO DISPLAY YOUR FLORAL PORTRAIT 
  
We recommend using either a PLAIN WHITE FRAME  
with a white matt OR an ORNATE WHITE FRAME 
with a white matt or mounted.


Glass: Framing behind glass provides the ultimate physical protection for your print. When framing gloss and semi-gloss prints, allow time for 'out-gassing' before placing behind glass, particularly  in colder climates, where the evaporation of glycol in the inks can occur quite slowly and leave a slight
oily fog on the glass inside the frame. 
We recommend finishing your print presentation with a minimum 99% UV resistant glass or a 70% UV resistant (AR70) glass with Reflection Control. Optimally a 99% UV Control or 'Museum Control' glass would be used.

Frame and matte: When framing your print, please make sure that your picture framer uses quality parts and be sure to discuss archival options with your framer before doing so, as cheaper quality frames often include non-archival glue/acids that can damage your print over time. Do not frame any work with foam spacers, over time this foam degrades, or the adhesive lifts and the spacer bows. 

Mount: For prints above A2 in size, especially prints that are not matted, we highly recommend mounting your print onto a 5mm Acid Free Rigid Foam Board. This ensures it stays flat and does not ripple. Some framers may state that this is not archival, but in the case of your digital fine art print we believe that it is acceptable, as the board becomes a part of the artwork over time.
