3 ways to clean your artwork

Written By On 15 November 2016

One of the greatest concerns for our customers is how to keep artwork clean and tidy once its all up in place. Bookmark this blog post to keep these tips handy – here are 3 ways of cleaning some of Printwild’s most popular products:

1. Feather duster: lightly dust your Faceblocks and Big1s – these prints are mounted onto laminated timber so any wet cloths or sponges against them will end badly. An alternative option for cleaning this artwork and other Mounted Prints would be to use a dry micro-fibre cloth (avoid furniture polish or use sparingly if you want a shine but keep in mind that if they become too shiny, your images will reflect more glare)

2. Damp cloth: Printwild canvas products are sprayed with a protective layer which allows you to clean the artwork is to clean the canvas prints a bit more thoroughly. Using a damp cloth over the face and edges of the canvas will help remove any dust and you can apply light pressure without damaging your prints but don’t let your damp cloth touch the wooden frame at the rear.

3. Soapy water: Acrylic and silverback acrylic pieces are specially designed to give your space a modern contemporary look. To keep these products in tip top shape, use warm soapy water and avoid all solvents.

Fast, friendly and professional service. From placing the order online to reciving the order, which only took 5 days, I was updated regularly on my order throughout the process. The canvas prints and faceblocks are excellent quality. I highly recommend PrintWild, if your a professional photographer or just want to print some family pics. They are the best! Keep up the great work!

Thank you Printwild for helping me keep and display my memories. Printwild have such a user friendly website and the ordering process was so easy, simply upload your images.I was kept in the loop throughout the entire ordering process so knew when my photos were edited, being printed and ready. The customer service is amazing and the staff are super helpful. All my photos were sent for met to proof before they were printed and i was able to keep some text on one of my images as well. The courier was quick and i was given tracking details to follow my order. The photos arrived and WOW! The magnatots look like glass tiles and the quality of print on both the magnets and photoblocks is crystal clear. i was able to unpack and hang my photoblocks, which i'm now addicted to, straight away. Such wonderful ways of displaying lots of photos in a small space. i love it! Can't wait to put in my next order

As a pro photographer having shot around 500 weddings, it’s extremely important that our brides are happy with their Canvas photos. Every bride as well as other clients have praised the quality of all the products supplied by Printwild 💕 Besides the great products and excellent services, the staff from the top and across all the spectrums, are an absolute delight to deal with and make one feel special. Having dealt with Printwild for over a decade I highly recommend them.
