Paper & Frame

Fine Art paper details

Unless specific mention, we use Hahnemühle German Etching Fine Art paper.

This is a heavy-weight paper (310 g/m²) with a slightly warm base tone and a strongly marbled texture. It offers a museum quality with vivid colors and deep, rich, contrasting blacks.
This is due to the paper’s texture, which enables it to hold more ink and capture light.

Thanks to its weight and felted texture, this paper lends the artwork an artisanal cachet.

Handled with care and displayed according to certain recommendations, it can be preserved for up to 80 years.

Framing option details

Unless specific mention, the brand used for framing option is Nielsen Quadrum.

Their frames are made in Germany from FSC®-certified wood (license code: FSC® C021405). The wood comes from sustainably managed forests that meet the criteria of the Forest Stewardship Council. The Oak frames are solid wood from FSC®-certified sources with an Oak veneer.

The frame windows are made of edge-ground float glass with a UV filter of approx 45%. The frames are also equipped with an acid-free insert and a sturdy rear panel.

The hanging type fixture on the reverse panel is called ‘Nail hanging’ and frames are equipped with hangers in portrait and landscape format.


Exhibition and conservation advices


◉ Avoid touching the artwork as much as possible, especially with bare fingers
◉ Consider framing the artwork to protect it from various external threats (dust, splashes, scratches, etc.)
◉ Prefer framing with protective glass included UV filter
◉ Maintain control over the artwork’s environment (light, humidity, temperature)
◉ Avoid exposing your artwork to bright light sources or direct sunlight
◉ Check from time to time that your artwork and its frame are in good condition

Respect all of these advices and your artwork will be preserved for up to 80 years.

*Preserved doesn’t mean that after 80 years your artwork will decompose itself. This means that it may loose a bit of its original condition (colors, shadows, texture, ..)


How can we take conservation even further?


If you want to preserve your artwork even longer, consider storing it in containers designed for archiving, such as museum-quality acetate sleeves, and placing it in acid-free archival cardboard boxes. Check your container from time to time to ensure that it remains in good condition and always free from insects, moisture or dust.

*Once it belongs to you, the artwork becomes your responsibility. These advices are general and does not supersede the opinion of a professional conservator.

Carbon Neutral

ThePrintSpace is my partner in this artistic journey.
Thanks to them, all prints and framed artworks are certified carbon neutral (delivery included).

Here are the 3 main points:

◉ Paper and Frame | All paper and wood-based materials come from sustainable sources certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council.

Packaging materials | These have been carefully selected to reduce environmental impact, while ensuring that your artwork is delivered in the best possible condition. Plastics are kept to a minimum, and all packaging materials come from sustainable, recycled, recyclable or biodegradable sources.

Delivery | The delivery of your artwork is always handled by DHL Express, to ensure a safe and careful premium delivery.
That’s why we charge for delivery, to help cover some of the costs involved.
DHL is a transport company that is increasingly turning towards ecology, notably with their GOGREEN solutions. Of course, transport itself cannot be 0 carbon, and neither can certain parts of ThePrintSpace’s business processes. Carbon neutrality is then achieved by ThePrintSpace (as of 2019) through investment in various renewable energy projects.
