Frame Care


Care Instructions

Frames are made to order in our Melbourne studio with high quality 100% timber frames. Our frames have a 20mm front and a depth of 40mm. All with string attached to the back of the frame ready to hang. 

All framed prints include clear acrylic, which has superior properties to standard glass protecting your print from UV light which causes prints to fade over time. Our acrylic is lightweight and shatter-resistant. Glass is also available but only for pickup from our Cheltenham studio. 

To clean acrylic and plexiglass that has slight blemishes or dirt, start off by clearing away any debris. Then, use a premium micro-fiber cloth with soapy water to clean the entire surface area. After wetting the cloth, be sure to lightly blot the surface, rather than applying pressure as you wipe. Too much pressure can actually result in more scratches. After you have wiped the entire piece of acrylic, use the dry side of the cloth to dry or buff the area. Buffing or polishing the acrylic surface reduces future stains. If there are any remaining streaks, rewet the cloth and dry again.

There are a couple of cleaning items that you'll want to stay away from. In fact, using the wrong cleaning product can completely damage your acrylic displays to the point that they become unusable!

  • Do not use paper towels because they will not remove scratches and may even cause them. Stick with micro-fiber type of cloth.
  • Avoid ammonia based products, like Windex or other home glass cleaners, because they contain harmful chemicals that will actually damage the surface leaving it cloudy looking. Soapy water is the safest and most effective cleaning solution for acrylic.

Damaged Frame?

All frames are carefully examined before leaving the studio, packaged with bubble wrap within a box and covered in fragile tape. In the odd occurrence that the frame gets damaged in transit, please send a photo of the damage to sales@zacdamiani.com and we will arrange for it to get fixed. A photo must be supplied.
