Care & Handling of your Original Artwork:

All TwosTools™ images are limited edition prints signed and individually numbered by Scott Friedlander using permanent archival ink. The edition number of each photograph refers to the total quantity of prints made (in addition to the artist’s proofs). The signature and numbering are at the bottom edge of the print. (All #1 editions are signed within the printed photographic image; all subsequently numbered editions are signed in the white border below the image.)

Please note that your particular edition’s numbering and signature may not be visible when the image is framed. For example, if your window mat does not reveal any white space around the image, the mat will cover the signature and numbering on a later-edition photograph.

All photographs are Digital Type C-prints printed on Fujicolor Crystal Archive Paper.

We recommend finishing your original artwork using acid-free, archival quality mats, mounting materials and backing. If your frame shop uses photocorners, we suggest the use of polypropylene materials and not PVC. PVC materials, while acid-free, have been found to interact with photographic paper and may in fact damage the image over time. We also advise the use of conservation glassing, which is coated to protect the images from harmful ultraviolet rays.

Effects of ultraviolet light exposure are cumulative and irreversible. Exposure to ultraviolet light may cause fading of the image colors and yellowing or breakdown of the materials that bear the artwork. Conservation coated glass or plexiglass blocks 97% of the ultraviolet light without affecting the visible light spectrum, preserving the colors of your image.

While the use of conservation glassing helps to minimize the potential for damage from exposure to ultraviolet light, we recommend the following additional precautions to further protect your artwork:

  1. Display your artwork in an area where it will not be exposed to direct sunlight, extreme temperatures, or excessive humidity.
  2. Avoid exposure to fluorescent lighting. Use non-fluorescent spot lighting if possible.
  3. Clean the conservation glassing as directed by the manufacturer. Please note that cleaning fluids containing ammonia may damage the conservation coating, and some cleaners will scratch or discolor plexiglass.

We thank you for your order and hope that you experience many years of enjoyment from your original artwork.
