How long will my prints last?

How long will my fine art prints last?

There are many variables that enter into image stability and print longevity. This can vary according to the image, display conditions, light intensity, atmospheric conditions and any post printing treatments. Whilst fine art paper manufacturers do not guarantee stability and longevity of fine art prints, we stand behind every print we sell. For maximum print life, your print should be stored in a cool, dry and dark place. The temperature and humidity should be controlled, however, this would mean that no one would actually be able to see your fine art print! Therefore, ideally and realistically, the print should be displayed out of direct sunlight and away from any heat sources (radiators or other heaters). This way, your print will be able to give many decades of pleasure and enjoyment!
