Facts & Questions

Do you purchase negatives from the public for your collection?

Yes. We are interested in acquiring any size collection of vintage, original negatives. We prefer to purchase only negatives for which exclusive copyright can be secured by our organization. If you have any collection (no matter the size) you are interested selling, please contact us as we are always looking for expansion opportunities.

What is a Gicleé print?

An article in Digital Fine Art Magazine stated that a Gicleé print is “the closest thing a collector can have to an original.” The process involves squirting microscopic dots of ink onto fine quality art paper and is considered one of the most significant breakthroughs in digital imaging today.

How should I handle my print?

Each print is susceptible to moisture and oils. Each print should be handled as little as possible with bare hands and should remain in a protective sleeve or archival framing unless it becomes necessary to handle the print. Special gloves can be purchased which will keep oils from compromising the image if handling becomes necessary.

How should my print be stored?

Prints should always be stored in sleeves or albums that are acid-free. If you choose to store the piece in a sleeve, you should choose clear polyester, polypropylene, or polyethylene. The sleeve in which we ship our prints is archivally sound.

When the print is framed, a wooden frame’s inside rabbit should be sealed with two coats of Urethane, each coat curing for 24 hours. Metal frames need no preparation. The mat should also be acid-free and not allow the print to touch the glass, which doesn’t have any specifications that need to be followed. Each print should be stored in a cool, dry, dark (no direct sunlight), and always in acid-free conditions.
