How to Take Care of Photography Aluminum Metal Prints

I am starting a new photo blog series where I provide some guidance on taking care of your
Photography Art Investments. In this first installment I will be talking about the do's and don't's of taking care of your photography aluminum metal prints so you can enjoy it for many years to come. In the coming weeks and following blog posts I will further discuss canvas prints, photo prints and acrylic prints.

A photography aluminum print brings artworks to life, it's stylish and adds depth. The high gloss of photo metal prints complement the rich colors of any photography image to produce the most stunning results. So how do you get the most out of those art prints?

- Do not put an aluminum print face down on a hard surface as you may scratch its surface.

- Do not drop it as the metal print may get dented.

- Clean an aluminum print by gently wiping it using only a soft dry cloth.

- Do not use Windex or other cleaning solvents. A cloth dampened with water may be used on occasion, but only when necessary.

- Display prints with care. When resting on a surface, edges of a print may get worn over time and cause damage.

- An aluminum print shows best when it is viewed at eye level using indirect or ambient light.

- Aluminum prints look well in dim lit areas and are a perfect solution when decorating dark corners in any room where nothing else works.

- Do not use a spotlight to enhance the viewing of a print, it bounces off the metal and usually washes out the image.

Good light and happy photo making!

My metal prints had a hazy film over it... tried wiping it out, having to buff them with a soft cloth, but still is taking forever, do you know what that is and how to clean it better? It is a bit frustrating getting prints I have to spend hour on... thank you
