Unpacking and Framing Your Art Prints
When your art print arrives, it's important to handle it with care during the unpackaging process. Take your time to gently remove the art print from its packaging tube, envelope, or box, ensuring that you avoid any scratching or bending of the delicate illustration artwork.
Unwrap the illustration from the antiscratch, water-resistant, and dust-proof wrapping. For art prints in sizes 21x29.7 cm and 30x40 cm, carefully peel off the see-through wrapping to reveal the stunning artwork beneath.
If you have ordered larger art prints, such as 30x40 cm, 50x70 cm, or 61x91 cm, or multiple art prints at once, they will typically arrive in a tube or a larger box. In such cases, if you have paper art prints, unroll them on a flat and protected surface. Weigh them down with some books to keep them flat while you prepare your frame and hanging tools.
It's important to note that paper art prints are more sensitive than canvas art prints. The structure of canvas paper makes it more forgiving when it comes to bending. Its fabric-like texture includes slight protrusions of the canvas fibers, eliminating the need for additional weighing down before framing.
While your paper art prints are resting or your canvases are waiting, take the time to prepare your frames and hanging tools for installation. Before placing the illustration art print into the frame, ensure that the glass surface is free from any dust particles. It's best to clean the entire frame (outer frame and glass) and allow it to dry before carefully laying down the artwork and closing the frame.
Maintaining the Ideal Interior Environment
All our art prints are printed with water-based inks that are fade-resistant. However, it's important to consider the environmental conditions in which you display your art print to ensure its longevity. Extreme temperatures can accelerate the breakdown of paper and ink. Therefore, it's recommended to keep the print in a cool environment, with the temperature not exceeding 24 degrees Celsius.
Avoid placing your illustration print in rooms with high humidity, as it can cause damage such as changes in texture, bending, and waviness. In extreme cases, it can even lead to mold growth. Conversely, if the humidity is too low, paper art prints can dry out and become brittle. Ideally, the humidity level in the space where you keep your art print should remain below 50 percent, but not drop below 30 percent. By maintaining optimal temperature and humidity conditions, you can ensure the long-lasting beauty and preservation of your art prints.
