PRINT CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Your print is more an art object, less like a poster, allowing the viewer’s eye a bit of relief while also giving a sense of depth and attention to the design.
Inkjet-based pigment prints on archival rag papers can be quite vulnerable to damage, even from relatively subtle contact, so they need to be handled carefully.
The following are simple instructions for making sure that your investment in a quality print isn’t wasted!
Don’t touch the printed area. Wherever possible do not touch any area on the page where pigment ink has been laid down. This is true across all paper and print types, but especially pertinent to matte papers printed with areas of high ink density (i.e. dark areas) and areas with smooth tonality (flat colour in a digital illustration). This is because matte papers achieve their matte finish by dispersing light with fine velvet-like fibres. And just like velvet, if you touch/rub/scuff it, traces of the contact will be left visible. Unlike velvet though, you cannot reverse this by running your hand back the other way – the damage is permanent and very obvious in dark and/or smooth areas of your prints. In lighter and more scattered/patterned prints you may never notice any scuffing or finger marks from contact, but always best to play it safe.
Keep it cool, dry & shady. Despite the surface fragility, with correct handling the longevity of pigment ink prints on archival papers is truly outstanding. Indeed that’s exactly what they’re designed for: potential centuries of stability, ensuring that many generations can enjoy a given artwork – maintained visually just as the artist prepared it.
Your best chance at achieving a long life for your print is keeping it dry, cool and out of direct sunlight. Big swings in temperature and humidity aren’t good so avoid them if you can.
Ensure Archival framing behind glass (or perspex) is the ideal destination for your print and provides the ultimate physical protection for it.
PAINTING CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Your painting is an original one of a kind and extream care should be taken to preserve its original condition. Palette knife thick imapsto paintings are unvarnished. To dust a Miranda Summers art work use a clean soft bristled paint brush, do not use cleaning products or solvents. Be sure to never scrub with abrasive materials.
