Paper & Ink
Orebyte Media has put together a collection of stunning images that can be truly appreciated as works of Fine Art. Our Pieces are created with the highest quality Archival Fine Art Papers and Pigment Archival Inks. Many of our Traditional Black and White Pieces are printed on Exhibition Fiber Semi-Gloss Paper or Fine Art 100% Cotton Rag Museum Paper which removes any reflections from the paper surface, allowing for easier viewing. Many of our Color Pieces are printed on Exhibition Fiber, Soft-Gloss surface papers that produce a vibrant palette and accent the smallest of details in Black and White. We also print on Archival Silver Metallic Paper that produces a stunning piece that looks like silver reflective metal and has a bluish tint when viewed at different angles. All of our Pieces and Framed Works are visually inspected at every step of the process for the most discerning Art Collectors.
Original Pieces Printed on Archival Paper in Black and White or Color are rated to be Stable for Greater than 200 Years. With no visible color shifts or fading. Longevity is increased further when framed under UV Glass or Stored in an Album or Dark Storage. Black and Gray Ink's are the most resistant to fading.
Mat & Liner
The Mat & Liner is Archival Conservation Quality. Mats are Acid-Free & Lignin-Free. The White Gallery style mat is a double thick 8-ply mat that holds the art pieces away from the glass surface. Artwork is secured to a Conservation back board using archival corners or strips that will allow for removal of art without damage. We have a few standard 8-ply double-mats to choose from and have custom colors available. Vivid White is our Standard Color.
Frames & Glass
Art Pieces are framed using Conservation Archival Gallery and Museum standards. Framing your art will ensure it will last for many years. We Use a Custom Metal Matt Black Frame with a Silver Edge. We use Museum UV Glass standard on all Framed Pieces. Museum UV Acrylic is additional, contact us for pricing. Museum Glass and Museum Acrylic has very little reflection and offers an unobstructed view of your art. At times it can look almost invisible.
Fine Art Rag Museum Paper & Silver Metallic Paper Artwork is delicate, do not touch the printed surface area with your fingers & hands or use a brush or cloth to free dust. Do not blow air from your mouth onto the surface as spit may get transferred. To remove dust use Canned Air at 6 -12 inches in short low pressure bursts, always hold the can upright and vertical. Tell your Framer not to touch the surface and give them a can of air if you decide to have it framed at a later time, ask them not to use tape for mounting and only use archival corners are recommended or archival strips for large pieces to mount artwork. Always use Acid Free Archival Materials when framing artwork.
Exhibition Fiber Semi-Gloss Prints can be wiped lightly in one direction using a Micro-Fiber or Cotton cloth to free dust, or lightly with canned air. Exhibition Fiber Prints are Sealed to prevent scratches and dust, they can be gently wiped by framers if needed. Silver Metallic Prints can be wiped gently with a cotton cloth to free dust "only on the area with dust, and then blown with canned air. Be Very Careful not to spray the canned air upside down or at an angle, always spray "the first time" of a new can away from the artwork, as it will discharge some liquid. Fine Art RAG Prints must not be wiped by anything at all, Only use canned air in short bursts vertically. Do not touch any part of the printed surface. Wear Cotton Gloves and hold on the corners.
Only Touch the edges or corners of the paper when handling, using cotton gloves if available. The less people that handle your art the longer it will last. If you decide not to frame your Artwork immediately, please store it in the protective Art Bag in which you received it. Place Artwork flat in a portfolio, in a dark and dry area, with a constant temperature if possible.
To ensure long lasting color and contrast Hang Artwork out of constant direct sunlight. We recommend hanging art in a space that has little or no direct sunlight on the artwork surface. The UV glass protects from sun and fluorescent light damage. Be aware that Heat from the Sun can cause degradation over time. UV Glass is one of the best ways to protect your art from damage.
Pieces are Signed "Verso" On the Back of the artwork, by the artist, including all artwork details and dates. Signed Pieces are Originals and come with a Certificate of Authenticity showing that each print was hand printed and signed by the artist and also includes a description of the artwork. We recommend buyers purchase directly from Orebyte Media & Orebyte to ensure you receive an authentic pristine condition piece. We recommend you Store the Certificate of Authenticity separate from the Artwork in a safe place and not attached to the back of frame, to prevent damage.
