Fine Art Photography FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions about limited edition prints bought from the Lincoln Schatz Studio web store.
What is face mounted acrylic?
Often seen in fine-art galleries and museums, this finish will bring your image to life.
- Image colors appear more brilliant and sharper than in a traditional picture frame
- Print is face-mounted to 1/8" acrylic
- Back of print is adhered to 1/8" dibond (aluminum composite)
- The total product is accented by smooth, polished edges
- 3/4" deep, recessed back frame is adhered to the back to give "floating" effect
Why do we use it?
The acrylic face-mounted image's floated back gives the piece an appearance of depth and weight on your wall that showcases the image beautifully.
The acrylic used is non-glare, museum-quality material, for longevity and best appearance.
How do I install my print?
The print comes with a cleat which you mount on the wall simply by leveling and screwing into two studs, or using drywall anchors. On the back of the print is a mount that you can easily set on the cleat to hang.
Mount the print on a straight, flat wall - the cleat must be completely true and cannot be bent to suit an uneven wall.

How do I clean my print?
You can dust your picture with a non-fuzzy, soft, dry cloth (microfiber, for example). To allow you to enjoy your work for a long time, do not use glass cleaning products to clean the print. Please also avoid putting pressure on the surface when wiping.

Sure! Contact us to arrange a studio visit to see the work in person, talk to Lincoln about the photos, & see what else he's working on.
