All prints are on matte, archival, acid-free paper, and all framed prints are framed in satin black wooden frames.
We've done a little bit of cleanup to prepare the image for printing, but this is a faithful reproduction of the source material, and bears any scratches, smudges, or tears that were in the original. How charming!
