    All prints are the same size. To order your print, simply nominate the print subject listed above on the instructions part of your order at checkout.

    Prior to custom framing, your prints should be handled as infrequently as possible, by the edges only, and with clean dry hands. Just like you’d handle a CD. Carefully. They should be stored flat if possible, or in a sturdy tube and kept away from sunlight, water, damp environments, bright lights or any materials that contain acids of any kind. Be very careful not to crease the prints when unrolling or handling them. Always unroll onto a clean, flat surface. If you’re at all in doubt; keep the print in its shipping container and let your custom framer open it.

    Never place a print in direct sunlight at any time. Make sure your framer ONLY uses non-acid materials.
