Protecting your investment Your investment in an original piece of art makes choosing protection important for several reasons. While your artist or design consultant will take care to work with products such as paint with a long life and drawing materials such as paper of archival quality, the environment often produces hazards to the vibrancy of colors and the durability of certain types of art is dependent upon its care over time. Art can offer lifetime enjoyment and unique inheritance for your heirs if you choose some simple ways to safeguard your art at the time of purchase. The protection of murals is different from that required for framed work or sculpture. Each type of work is susceptible to individual hazards for which there are specifically designed solutions. Your design consultant will assess the visible hazards at the time of your consultation and ask questions to determine whether other problems are likely to arise over the life of the work.

Once you have a general idea of what kind of custom art work you would like it is time to schedule your consultation.

Your consultant will make a protective need assessment based on these factors. So, now that you have scheduled a design consultation what can you expect? The design consultant will have conducted a phone or email screening to get an idea of the project, including size of the art, whether the final work will be a mural directly on the wall, a framed pi
