DISPLAY AND PRESERVATION

OF YOUR FINE ART PRINT

The pigment and paper combination used in the production of this print are the best combination possible to reduce color change of the print and or paper. According to data supplied by

Wilhelm Research (see last paragraph to access this data from the web)

the combination of this pigment set. and pa per will at a minimum not fade noticably in excess of 40 years if you follow the simple rules of display in item #1 below.

  1.  AT A MJNIMllM DO NOT DISPLAY YOUR PRINT IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT. ENSURE THAT IT IS KEPT IN A STABLE AIR CONDITIONED SPACE. AND KEEP AIRBOR NE CONTAMINANTS TO A MINIMUM.

    Though the combination of pigments and paper we use are very stable. wildly fluctuating temperatures. humidity and airborne contaminants can and will play havoc with your fine art print. They can significantly reduce it's longevity!

    The above conditions are barebulb light at 450 LUX for t 2 hours a day. at a relative humidity of 60%. and at a constant 24 degrees C.  If you observe these simple conditions there

    should be no noticable color shifting or pa per degradation for 40 years.
     
  2. If you display your print with (archival) matting & under regular glass and follow the above conditions as well. you will increase your prints longevity to in excess of 60 years.
     
  3. If you display your print as above. and with UV filtering glass you can expect to increase its longevity to in excess of 100 years.
     
  4. If you elect to additionally have Premiere Art Spray aplied to your print you will increase it's longevity to in excess of 140 years. (paradoxically the addition of this art spray negates the need for the addition of UV glass versus standard glass).

     
  5.  If you choose to use archival dark storage for your print. the data from the Wilhelm report (referenced in the last paragraph) suggests that it's longevity will be in excess of 200 years (testing is still ongoing).

 

We are constantly improving the quality of the prints we produce. Within the next year we hope to be producing fine art prints that will exceed 300 years of display in your living room.

We produce all of our prints at our studio to ensure the highest quality to you. We have found that while some printers are very.very good we could not assure ourselves that you were receiving the absolute best of current printing technology without doing it ourselves.

 

We applaud the great work of Wilhelm Research for it's 40+ years of research background in photographic and print media longevity. A complete PDF report is available at:
