CARING FOR YOUR SIGNED EDITION PRINT:

To protect your investment and secure the longevity of your original David Lace print please follow the detailed guidelines below:


Prints should be displayed indoors with the main light source being either artificial(tungsten) or a combination of artificial and indirect sunlight. They should not receive direct sunlight for any extended period as this may damage the print and accelerate the fading process. Care should also be given to keep prints away from moisture or excess humidity.

Many collectors store their print in light-tight archival acid free cases or portfolios. If you plan to DISPLAY your art print please follow the guidelines below to increase the life of your photographic print:

Probably the most important concern for your artwork, even after having it properly framed, is where you decide to hang and display it. By all means - AVOID HANGING ANY PIECE OF ART WHERE IS WILL BE EXPOSED TO DIRECT SUNLIGHT. This is probably the single most important bit of advice that I can stress. Exposure to direct sunlight has most likely damaged more art than any other element of concern.

The primary cause of image fading on most photographic materials is "visible light". For OPTIMAL protection your print should be framed and displayed under glass to protect the image surface from the environment. Glass adds another layer of protection against ultraviolet light.

When cleaning the glass, do not spray the cleaner directly on the glass. The cleaner could inadvertently run under the edge of the frame, contaminating the mounting material or art; spray your cloth first, and then, wipe the glass clean.

DISPLAY, ILLUMINATION, ENVIRONMENT, & ENJOYMENT

The best method for displaying your print is to hang the it in an area that is never hit with direct sunlight. It is recommended that  prints be displayed in tungsten lighting, ideally with 75-watt (75R30/FL) or 150-watt (150R/FL) internal reflector flood lamps. Installing a dimmer switch on the display light lets you adjust the intensity for greatest effect and print longevity. Quartz halogen and fluorescent lamps are NOT recommended unless a UV filter, such as Plexiglas UF-3, is placed over the fixtures.

To extend the life of a print on display, keep the room as dark as possible when not in use. As far as temperature and humidity is concerned, don't hang your print in areas that experience wide temperature variations, high heat (attics), or high humidity (damp basements). Wide temperature variations can cause the framing materials to warp. High temperature and humidity shortens the life of your print. The use of air conditioners, especially humidity-control units, are recommended.

For maximum enjoyment of your fine art print, display your framed piece in an area that allows for people to stand back and take in the entire image.
