Caring for Your New Artwork or Print

So, you've just purchased a beautiful piece of artwork or a high-quality print that you can't wait to display in your home or office. But now what? How do you ensure that it stays looking its best for years to come? Proper care and maintenance are crucial to preserving the longevity and beauty of your new art investment.

Here are some helpful tips on caring for your new artwork or print:

  1. Handle with care: When handling your new artwork, make sure to do so with clean hands or wear gloves to avoid transferring oils or dirt onto the surface. Avoid touching the artwork or print with your fingers or any sharp objects.

  2. Display in a suitable environment: Proper display of your new artwork is crucial to its preservation. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight or near sources of heat or moisture, such as radiators or humidifiers. This can cause fading, warping, or discoloration over time. Also, be mindful of the humidity levels in the room and try to maintain a stable environment.

  3. Use the right materials: When framing or mounting your artwork, make sure to use acid-free materials such as mat boards, tapes, and adhesives to prevent discoloration or degradation of the artwork. UV-protective glass can also be used to block harmful UV rays.

  4. Clean with care: If your artwork or print becomes dusty or dirty, use a soft brush or microfiber cloth to gently remove any debris. Avoid using water or cleaning solutions, as this can cause damage to the surface. If you must use a cleaning solution, consult a professional for guidance.

  5. Store properly: If you need to store your artwork or print, make sure to do so in a dry and cool place, away from direct sunlight, heat, or moisture. Use acid-free paper or storage materials to protect the artwork from potential damage.

By following these simple tips, you can ensure that your new artwork or print stays in pristine condition for years to come. Remember, proper care and maintenance are essential to preserving the beauty and value of your investment.
