Limited Edition Box Canvas Print Care

 Caring For Your Giclee Prints Giclee prints are very special: they can be found in the world's finest museums, art galleries and private art collections and should be treasured and cared for in the same way as an original piece of art. Giclee prints carefully reproduce the rich colours and beautiful detail of each brush stroke of the original painting and any imperfections that you may see on the print are a feature of the original painting and exact reflection of the nature of the painted surfaces of paintings.   

 Your Giclee print has been professionally printed on artist’s quality, heavy duty canvas with fully archival Epson UltraChromeK3® pigment inks. All canvas prints have a coat of UV inhibiting varnish which is designed to add an extra level of protection to the ink on the canvas. This coating also increases the longevity of the colours in your image.  Please read the care instructions below to ensure your giclee print will continue to enhance your surroundings and bring you pleasure for years to come.  

Care and handling of your canvas giclee print on arrival  

  •  The very nature of a natural product such as cotton canvas means that there will be imperfections (lumps and bumps) on the surface of the canvas caused by the variations in the cotton threads that make up the canvas. This is normal and a feature of cotton canvas.

  •  Likewise, any imperfections that you may see on the print are a feature of the original painting and as such a reflection of the nature of the painted surfaces of original paintings.

  •  After unrolling the print from the packaging, please use two hands to support the print so it will not bend. A crease in the print is permanent. Even better, take you print directly to the framer still in its packaging rather than handle it yourself.

  •  The cardboard tube your art print is packaged in is not suitable for long-time storage as it is not acid free and archival. However, your print is safe while wrapped in the special tissue paper I have provided.

  •  Please keep your new print covered until it is stretched and framed to avoid damage. Be careful of water, hard objects & adhesives as these can damage or scratch the surface of the print. Try not to use your hands to wipe off any dust as this can also scratch the surface.

  •  Try not to display your canvas prints in areas of high concentrations of UV light or heat. Use correct coloured art lighting (if possible) for best results.

  •  Canvas prints can be cleaned with a light feather duster. Solvents etc. should never be used. If anything marks your canvas or stains it, seek expert advice such as a fine art print framer
