Pricing for Drawings and Photos
The list below is a guide. If the works are already priced please refer to that amount.
If you need something framed, please refer to this general guide. The best plan...contact me for an estimate.
Recommendations for Framing:
Have your professional framer use archival materials.
Do not use corrugated cardboard as a backing for artworks. The cardboard contains chemicals that will seep into the paper of the work causing discolorations which cannot be removed.
Avoid colored mats, the pigments often fade and there may be chemicals that form a fog on the inside of the framing glass.
Use UV Plexiglas® when framing original artworks as the UV treatment deflects the harmful rays of the sunlight or your own home’s lighting and therefore helps prevent the pigments in the artwork from fading as well as helping to keep the fiber content of the paper from deteriorating.
A good rule of thumb is to have at least two inches of mat around each side of the work and even greater if the work is larger than 8 x 10.
Keep framed work in a temperate environment as exposure to high humidity or freezing temperatures will cause the paper to react with fluctuation when returned to a home environment.
