Handling and Care of Prints

Consider this when handling unframed prints.

  1. If you must handle  your print, lift it by diagonally opposite corners to avoid creasing. 
  2. Finger smudges, dirt, or dents and tears caused by carelessness will affect the look and value of your print.
  3. Strong light has serious effects on prints with ultraviolet light causing colours to fade and change.
  4. Water can have a serious negative effect on prints and will affect the look and value of your print.
  5. Have your print properly framed.

By following these suggestions you can ensure your prints will remain in top condition for many years.

Note:  Studio To You  uses  InkPress (Pro Silky) Paper for an outstanding surface that allows handling without fingerprints or artifacts. For more information please go to
