Hi All
I am starting to do more fine art prints on the Hahnemuhle art paper. I looking at the finish off the prints and wonder if and what you do when come to mounting you artwork and numbering your work please?

Do Hahnemuhle protective sprays for them do any off you use it?

What sort off fixing do you use on your print to fix them to backing board in the corns please?

Do you print onto the boarders of your prints your limited addition print numbers and date please?

When you sign your prints what do you use for this pen pencil please?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks
Brian

I do framing next to my studio.

The prints are fixed onto the mount not the backing board with a white mounting tape. They are known as hinges.
The prints are usually signed either on the back with the print number over the print run number. IE, 1/300 This is normally a sticky label attached to the outside of the backing board or outside of the print area on the bottom, these can then be hidden or displayed within the mount.
They are then either wrapped in clear cellophane the same as florists use for flowers or put into cellophane envelopes.

Hope this helps.
