All works framed by us are mounted/framed to high standards using 100% acid free conservation board and mounts. They are framed so as not to restrict the natural movement of the paper and are hinged only to the board with acid free hinges and not directly to the mount itself. Framing and mounts should be reviewed after ten years or so. Under no circumstances should prints be framed irreversibly i.e.: by dry mounting them or fixing them in any way that restricts their natural movement.
They should be hung away from direct light or heat and conserved away from a damp environment to prevent any future damage to them. Light , heat and damp are major factors in the deterioration of prints. Although direct sunlight will damage a print more than artificial light, it is advisable not to fix a light immediately over or too close to a print.
Original prints should never be handled. If you
must handle prints then try to wear cotton gloves, and only handle at
the edges as the acid found naturally on skin will cause them to deteriorate
