  • This fine art print is crafted on 310gsm Hahnemuhle German Etching alpha-cellulose genuine mould-made paper, renowned for its superior quality and durability. The paper features a slightly textured surface, providing a lushly artistic finish that enhances the vibrancy of the artwork. This white art paper is made from 100% alpha-cellulose, ensuring it is both acid- and lignin-free, which meets the most exacting requirements for age resistance, conforming to ISO 9706 standards for museum-quality longevity. Printed using UltraChrome Pro10 archival pigment inks, this artwork ensures exceptional color accuracy and longevity, making it a true archival piece. Each print is produced in Dr. Lindsay Marshall's studio.
Product Care
  • To ensure the longevity and preservation of your fine art print, follow these care guidelines: Handling: Always handle your print with clean, dry hands to avoid transferring oils and dirt. It’s best to use cotton gloves if possible. Framing: Frame your print using archival-quality materials. UV-protective glass or acrylic will help shield it from harmful light exposure. Acid-free matting and backing will prevent deterioration over time. Display: Hang your print in a location away from direct sunlight, high humidity, and temperature fluctuations. Ideal conditions are moderate light and stable, room-temperature environments. Cleaning: Dust your print and frame regularly with a soft, dry cloth. Avoid using any cleaning agents or sprays directly on the print or the frame’s glass. Storage: If storing your print, keep it in a cool, dry place. Use acid-free tissue paper and flat, sturdy storage to prevent any creasing or bending. Avoid storing in basements, attics, or places prone to moisture and temperature changes. By following these guidelines, you can maintain the beauty and integrity of your fine art print for years to come.
Packaging and Finishing
  • Each fine art print is meticulously packaged to ensure it arrives in pristine condition. The print is placed in a crystal-clear archival bag, designed to protect and preserve its quality. For those not planning to frame their print immediately, an optional archival white backing board is available. These boards provide additional protection and are FSC certified, 100% recyclable, making them an eco-friendly choice. However, if you intend to hang your print straight away, the backing board can be omitted to reduce waste. The print is signed by Dr. Lindsay Marshall, the artist, and embossed with her logo, adding a personal touch of authenticity. To complete the presentation, the print is wrapped in custom tissue paper and securely posted in a rigid mailer, ensuring it remains flat and undamaged during transit.
