Do giclée prints require any special handling?

The best advice here is to treat your giclée prints in the same way that you treat your original art.

Avoid touching the print surface, keep the prints away from liquid, don't display prints outdoors, make sure that if you are having the print framed that only archival materials come in to contact with your prints. Make sure that the framer is using conservation or museum quality mount boards. Handles and treated correctly, any giclée print made with authentic papers and inks should last a lifetime. Your giclée print really should be treated with care, but as an artist or photographer you will be used to handing delicate and precious materials.
