How can we help? Here are some general answers about prints!
ARE THE PRINTS SIGNED?
Yes they are! I hand-sign them on the back of the print, but you can leave me a note at checkout if you want it to be on the front part of it. Polaroids are not signed
HOW ARE ORDERS PACKAGED?
Polaroids, mini prints and medium prints are placed into a protective plastic sleeve with a laminated, compact cardboard to ensure the envelope doesn't bend.
Extra size prints are placed into a protective plastic sleeve and rolled up in a cylindrical shipping tube.
HOW ARE PRINTS MADE?
I print them one by one, and let them dry for 48 hours. Every print is made by order but I usually have a bunch of them already printed and dry so I can ship all my orders faster, since they dry process is really important to mantain the deep colors and glow of the paintings.
When it comes to full-bleed prints and polaroids, besides printing them I also cut them by myself with a lot of care.
WHAT PAPER AND INK DO YOU USE??
Prints are printed on bright white 300 gr fine art photography paper in order to look like an actual photo, minus some clearance produtcs (paper used will be said in their descriptions).
For ink, everything is printed with Lucia archival quality pigment based inks in order to provide the best quality. These inks guarantee a super vivid, luminous color range to preserve the look of the original artwork. They are made to last over 200 years without fading. What’s more, every print will be printed at the highest quality available and at 600 dpi, to provide all the details all my artworks have.
LIMITED EDITION PRINTS
I only offered a few limited edition prints and the rest of prints are not limited, but please consider that sometimes I stop selling some of my artworks and won’t be restocked anymore.
HOW TO TAKE CARE OF PRINTS
Everything is printed using Lucia archival quality pigment based inks, which guarantee a super vivid luminous color range. They are meant to last over 200 years without fading.
But in order to preserve them as good as possible, please make sure to follow at least one of these instructions:
- Frame the artwork - if possible, use anti-UV glass
- Direct sunlight is forbidden - this will make the prints to fade faster
- Avoid Humidity - we recommend putting the art in rooms instead of garages, attics or bathrooms
