Image Care

Sunlight: Our inks are archival quality and will give decades of use. However, please keep this and all images away from direct sunlight - if there is a place where direct sun hits the Image every day for hours at a time, fading will occur no matter what the printing process. If you keep the image from repetitive direct sun, it will last decades.

Cleaning: Although our inks are highly scratch resistant, please dust with a light feather brush or compressed air. Do not use water, solvents, or other cleaners.

Humidity: Due to humidity changes, canvas may loosen a bit in Winter due to the dry heat, and re-tighten in Spring, Summer and Fall. This is normal. 

Blessing: Because these prints are of Sacred Images, they are usually blessed with Holy Water. Because of this, we have worked hard to provide you with a totally waterproof Image. (We tested these inks under a garden hose for 2 minutes at full pressure with no damage). Once blessed, however, do not wipe the Image; allow it to dry naturally in an upright position. On the Vilnius Image, it is best to bless the Image in the colored areas rather than in the black background.

Frames: Our frames are real wood with veneers. You can use a damp cloth or a furniture polish like Pledge on the frames. Please spray the cloth, not the frame, to avoid getting the polish on the Image. 

With this care, your Image will look beautiful for many years to come.
