The MLENs for an individual Artwork in a specified media will be established before the first print of the individual Artwork is sold in the specified media. The MLEN print or proof number will be indicated on each print with the individual print or proof number next to the Artist’s signature. Once the designated MLENs for an individual Artwork in the specified media are printed, no further prints or proofs of the individual Artwork, on the specified media type, will be produced, offered or allowed until the statutory copyrights of the original Artwork expire and fall into the Public Domain (70) seventy years after the Artist’s death.

- Limited Edition Archival Print Materials  -

Ink: Archival pigmented inks
Canvas: Artist-Grade Cotton Canvas
UV Protective Coating: Semi-Gloss Liquid Laminate
Stretcher Bars: 1.75” Expansion Bolt Stretcher Bars. Precision mechanical hardware at the joints allows control of fabric tautness. This eliminates the need for re-stretching as the fabric relaxes over time. The joints are located at all four corners and where braces meet the outside bars. This means the bars are adjustable to a maximum expansion of 3/8" per joint or 3/4" per dimension. Two internal steel dowels keep each joint aligned and provide rigidity. Strong, integral bracing prevents twisting, sagging and warping.
Hanging Hardware: All prints are sold with hanging hardware installed.

- Stretching Style -
Prints are stretched in the Gallery Wrap format where the art is extended to cover the stretcher bars on the top, bottom and sides. Framing is not available from Primordial Arts.

- Longevity, Handling & Care -

Prints are protected with a UV coating. Print color longevity is further enhanced when prints are displayed in indirect lighting conditions, away from any contact with moisture. Best results over time are achieved in an environment controlled for light, humidity and temperature. Clean with a dry, lint free cloth. Never use a wet or moist cloth.
