Terms & Conditions
Unfortunately, we too can’t do without some small print. After all, we are dealing with sophisticated and sensitive works of art.
We would start by pointing out that photographs are always dependent on environmental influences; their appearance and colour can change and fade. To ensure you keep enjoying our works of art, you should not expose photographs, laminations or frames, either in part or in full, to direct sunlight, hang them directly above heating appliances or expose them to a higher level of humidity than expected in a normal living room. Photographs, laminations and frames are therefore not suitable for external areas, cellars, bathrooms or kitchens. Laminations with UV protective film or acrylic glass and wooden frames are very sensitive to scratches and dirt and should therefore only be handled with gloves or equivalent protection.
