Unpacking the Prints
Treat art prints with great caution. Apart from the fact that an art print with dog-ears, wrinkles or cracks in the paper is looking unsightly on the wall, such damage usually leads to a substantial or total loss of it's value. Ensure that you unpack your print with with clean, dry hands. If art prints are in a tube for a few days, the paper conforms to the shape of the tube. Do not oppress the print flat immediately, since this may might cause it to crease. Instead, allow it to unbend one or two days. Depending on the size of the print you may place 2 or 4 magazines in the middle of the rolled print and move them a little towards the edges from time to time.
