Framed print - The Kaka is Calling by Sofia MinsonSofia Minson's limited edition prints are of the highest standard Fine-Art digital reproductions available in the world.

They are created by first capturing the original painting as a high resolution digital image. They are then printed using light-fast pigments on museum quality, acid-free paper with advanced ink-jet technology.

These prints are superior in beauty, quality and durability, lasting up to 120 years before any colour change is apparent to the human eye.

Below the image the artwork is titled, numbered with its unique edition number, dated with the year of printing and signed. The value of a published artwork like this will increase over the years with the profile of the artist.

How do I handle my new print with care?

  • Your print will arrive rolled in a protective tube. It is recommended that any handling and especially back-rolling to remove curl is only undertaken by an expert framer or someone with experience in working with paper.
  • Extra care should be taken to not get any dust or moisture on the print. Removal of dust from the surface should be managed with an air source or very soft brush, not by using a cloth or hand.
  • Glass should cover the print as the ink is vulnerable to water damage. Don't hang your print on a wall that receives direct sun.
  • If displaying your print behind standard framing glass in standard lighting conditions (not in direct sunlight) your artwork is estimated to show no noticeable fading for at least 80 years.
  • If UV museum glass is used this time is suggested to exceed 200 years.

 

 

 

How do I frame my print?

Framed Print Measurements Example

When you receive the print it will be unframed so you can frame it how you wish.

This diagram shows suggested measurements for framing only.

The artist's personal recommendation is that you ask your framer to surround the image with a generous 7 - 13cm cardboard matting of any colour that highlights the image, white is usually a good bet.

Glass should cover the print as the ink is vulnerable to water damage. Normal glass or non-reflective glass are both fine. Ideally don't hang your print on a wall that receives direct sun.
