Welcome to Lori in Theory! As a proud owner of our exquisite Giclée fine art prints, you've made an investment in timeless beauty and quality. To ensure that your artwork remains as radiant as the day you acquired it, we've put together this comprehensive care guide just for you.


Display with Care

- Choose a suitable location: Display your Giclee fine art print away from direct sunlight, extreme temperatures, and high humidity to prevent fading, warping, or discoloration.
- Frame it right: Invest in high-quality, acid-free framing materials to protect your print from environmental damage and ensure its longevity. Consider using UV-protective glass or acrylic to further shield it from harmful rays.

Handle with Clean Hands

- Always handle your print with clean, dry hands to prevent oils, dirt, or moisture from transferring onto the surface. Hold the piece around the write border.
- If necessary, wear cotton gloves to minimize direct contact and reduce the risk of smudges or fingerprints.

Clean with Caution

- Dust regularly: Use a soft, dry microfiber cloth or a soft-bristled brush to gently remove any dust or debris from the surface of your print. Avoid using water or cleaning solutions, as they may damage the ink or paper.
- Professional cleaning: If your print requires more thorough cleaning, consult a professional conservator experienced in handling fine art prints to ensure safe and proper care.


Preserve with Precaution

- Avoid adhesives: Refrain from using adhesive tapes, pins, or other mounting methods that could damage the print's surface or leave residue over time.
- Acid-free storage: If you need to store your print for an extended period, use acid-free archival sleeves, folders, or boxes to protect it from environmental pollutants and moisture.


Lastly, Enjoy and appreciate: Take the time to admire and appreciate the beauty of your Giclée fine art prints regularly. Let them inspire and uplift you with their timeless elegance and exquisite detail.
