Archiving, Framing & Display

Private commissions are
undertaken within the
photographers field of work.

In order to protect your investment in collectable art photography it is vital that the print is framed corectly. Prints should never be glued directly onto the backing board.
Correctly framed, the prints are
either taped to the reverse side of the mounting board or suspended on archival clips. These clips are hinged onto the backing board of the frame using a minimal amount of archival glue which allows the artwork to be floated between the glass and the backing board, guaranteeing the protection of the print.

Mounting board must be 100% acid free and 2mm clear, non-reflective UV inhibiting glass should be used. It is vital that the frame is sealed in order to keep out moisture, dust or insects. To achieve a clean uncomplicated look it is recommended that white mount board is used within a white or silver frame.
The overall effect being in keeping with the clean, concise, abstract quality of the photographic style.

The weight of the outer frame is adjusted according to the size of the print. Framed work should always be transported upright and displayed out of direct sunlight.

To ensure exceptional archival value, photographs are printed on Epson Enhanced Matte paper with 76 – 100 years longevity (dependant on the environment), using UltraChrome K3 inks on an Epson Stylus Pro 9800 ink jet printer, or similar quality.

Recommended image size of A2 (approx. 420mm x 600mm) is matted to a finished size of 680 mm x 840 mm. All matting and backing boards are acid free archival stock.

Larger sizes are available on request and may require resprocessing,retouching etc, as well as printing and matting, necessarily increasing lead times.

Images are normally printed on order to ensure longevity.
