Handling and display instructions

As with any oversize image, such as posters or photographs, care should be taken in handling the image to prevent dents and dings that sometimes occur from handling.

In order to preserve the quality and condition of your print, we recommend the following handling and display methods:

  • Handling:
    • Carefully slide the paper from the mailing tube.  If it does not slide out easily, find the inner edge of the paper and gently wind the edge in a circular motion while carefully pulling the paper out of the tube;
    • Lay the print out with flat support under it.  Do not handle the print without support to prevent it from bending;
    • Use white cotton gloves when handling the print especially if it is made on canvas;
  • Display:
    • Avoid direct sunlight exposure unless using a protective UV protective coating;
    • Avoid displaying prints near heating or cooling systems as these may cause condensation which can damage the print.
