Below are our tips tips on how to care for your Scott Leggo artworks to ensure you can enjoy them for years to come.
Display. For optimal display life, your artworks should not be displayed in direct sunlight. Direct sun light can cause the prints to fade over time. Do not display any Scott Leggo artworks outdoors, as the prints have not been weather sealed.
Handling. We recommend taking your unframed print straight to a framer. Do not take it out of the protective tube. Unframed prints should be handled as little as possible. Avoid touching the print surface with bare hands as the moisture and oils from your skin can affect print quality. To avoid damage hold prints by the edge, do not touch the printed image, only the white edges. We suggest wearing cotton gloves which are lint-free and designed for handling art.
Framing. When having your print framed, mount it under glass or acrylic to minimise exposure to humidity and atmospheric contaminants. We recommend UV glass or acrylic as the premium option to maximise protection from UV light. When framing leave a gap between the glass and the print. We suggest discussing archival options with your framer, as cheaper quality frames often include non archival glue/acids that can damage your print over time.

Hanging. If your print is fitted with D rings only (no wire fitted), please see our hanging guide for how to hang your print with D rings. Do not affix wire between the D rings - this will damage the frame over time.
Cleaning. Your print is finished with museum quality conservation acrylic which transports well and more safely than glass. It also provides 99% UV protection for your print. As acrylic is softer than glass it is more susceptible to scratching. Take special care when cleaning the surface. We strongly recommend a high quality micro fibre cleaning cloth, used dry. Other types of cloth and glass cleaning products could scratch or damage the acrylic.
