Recommended Care: Treat you print with care until it has been mounted and or framed. Metallic prints will look best in good lighting. If you receive your print and aren't seeing the colors and details pop, try taking the print into a different room with better lighting. If you'd like to frame your metallic print, avoid any glazing as this addition may extinguish the metallic pop.
