Can I display my print outside? How well do they hold up to heat or moisture?
Fracture prints are intended for indoor home decor use only, and don't play well with outdoor conditions.
Our prints are not weather-proof or waterproof, so exposure to varying amounts of humidity or heat may cause damage to Fracture prints and mounting. The mounting on the back of our prints is made of foamcore, which can be damaged by water/moisture and extreme heat.
We print images directly onto glass using UV-cured ink, so our prints won't fade over time or with exposure to sunlight. Fracture prints are not considered archival—though they will last a very long time if kept indoors and not exposed to extreme humidity or poor handling. Any manufacturing defects in the glass or foamcore backing are covered under our Lifetime Warranty!
Even indoors, we recommend prints be kept away from heating elements or places where moisture can build up—which may include bathrooms, depending on your bathroom's ventilation. Some of our customers have reported success in hanging our prints in half-bathrooms or larger bathrooms, but smaller spaces may expose your print to too much moisture, which can be damaging.
