09/04/06: Tips for Hanging Framed Artwork

Tips for Hanging Framed Artwork

A climate controlled environment is the preferred place to hang your framed photographs. Here are some things to consider when displaying your framed prints:
  • do not hang photos in direct sunlight
  • do not hang photos over fireplaces
  • do not hang in high moisture areas such as bathrooms
  • avoid hanging over heating or cooling ducts

Heat, moisture and light can do the greatest damage to your valuable framed fine-art images. If you have a room that gets a lot of light, be sure to use UV protected glass to reduce the harmful effects of ultra-violet. Clean the surface of your framed images regulary -- and be sure to spray the cleaning material onto a soft cloth not the surface of your artwork!
