HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR CUSTOM FRAMING
- Transporting your pictures - don’t carry your pictures by the wire or cord as the bounce effect creates added tension to not only the hanging hardware, but the frame itself. Don’t leave your picture out in the sun or in a hot car any longer than necessary, as a quick temperature change can create condensation that is detrimental to the 'artwork'.
- Hanging your picture - all frames should be hung with picture hooks. In most instances frames should be hung using two hooks.
- Where to hang - ideally picture frames should be displayed at eye level, but thought must be given to individual needs. Pictures that are planned to be hung very high or low may require special consideration in design of the matting to prevent optical illusion. Any 'artwork' on paper is not recommended to be hung in high humidity areas such as bathrooms. It is also not a good idea to hang it in areas such as kitchens, where there is a likelihood of grease and cooking pollutants from time to time. Never hang 'artwork' on exterior walls.
- Cleaning your picture glass - when the need arises to clean the glass on your picture, spray the cleaner onto a soft cloth and then clean the glass. If you spray the cleaner directly onto the glass it may run under the frames lip, under the glass, and onto the mat board or worse still onto the 'artwork'.
