Gallery Wrapped Canvas
If your artwork is reproduced on canvas, we apply 2 light coats of a flexible acrylic coating that provides enhanced UV protection and adds durability and scratch resistance to the surface of your art. All canvas prints are stretched on a 1.5-inch custom sized stretcher bar frame.
What is Hand Embellished?
Picked out by Dianna Lynn Walker, she will only choose certain images that will be hand embellished because of this beautiful art form. Using the same type of canvas, she will enhance your art for a one-of-a-kind piece that is parallel to none. Using an acrylic clear medium, her artist will paint only the most important part of the image to highlight the subject to give it a dimensional look. Since each piece is different, it then becomes a piece of art that is only unique to you, the buyer.
The artwork will then be placed in a unique step-down black profile floating frame with a professional fabric dust cover and wire hanger ready to hang. You will not find this frame on your standard framed art. This is truly a high-end custom product. Please allow an extra seven (7) business days for this process.
What is Dyemond Metal?
The Dyemond print is an improved substitution for the Dye-Sublimation print with a solid aluminum back plate.
- .04 aluminum panel
- Micro thin optically clear adhesive film
- Glossy photographic print, white or metallic paper
- Micro thin optically clear adhesive film
- Durable, protective, crystal clear hard coat face layer with a gloss finish.
What is Matted Paper? The art that you choose to purchase will have a pearlescent look to enhance the color and depth of each image. Using the finest paper, the image will be archival matted with a 3-inch white-toned matte. You, the buyer, will be able to choose your own frame from your professional framer of choice.
Lighting your image properly involves using a mixture of spotlights and spreads. The proper degree of spread will depend on the distance of the light fixture from the photograph. While several light bulbs can sufficiently light your image, we use MR16 halogen bulbs in all of our displays. It is best to seek the advice of an electrician or lighting professional to ensure the proper balance of light and presentation of your art.
DLW Fine Art uses the finest materials. While measures have been taken to provide UV protection, it is recommended to avoid displaying your photograph in direct sunlight, high humidity, or high temperatures. Temperatures in excess of 75°F, direct sunlight, or humidity above approximately 60% could cause damage to your image over time, including but not limited to fading in the photograph or the formation of bubbles on the mounted image.
Extreme caution should be used whenever it is necessary to clean the surface of your Fine Art photograph. Per instructions, dust the image with a soft, extreme damp cloth that contain NO FIBERS. Apply only light pressure and dry by blotting the cloth. Dry or gritty cloths may cause surface scratches and create a static electric charge on the surface.
Do not use window cleaning sprays, kitchen scouring compounds, or solvents such as acetone, gasoline, or lacquer thinner to clean your image, as this may cause permanent damage to your image.
Our wood should not require care other than periodic dusting. A high quality microfiber dry cloth may be used to remove spots or debris. Avoid the use of liquid and chemical cleaning products, as these will cause the protective finish to deteriorate over time.
We recommend using compressed or canned air to remove any surface dust that accumulates on the liner over time, making sure that no moisture is expelled from the can during the cleaning process.
Your DLW Fine Art has been shipped with the appropriate hanging equipment already attached to the back of the frame. Picture hangers and/or wall anchors are recommended but are not included with your purchase since we are not aware of how and where you wish to mount your photograph.
Quick checklist before hanging…
The type of hanging hardware to display your DLW Fine Art photograph depends on the type of wall the photograph will be displayed (ie. a brick wall will require different hangers from a drywall finish). Please consult with a professional when choosing the types of hanging equipment.
- Artwork is best viewed at eye level.
- Use a level when positioning your wall hanger onto the wall.
- It’s best for two people to hang your artwork to the wall.
- Always use caution when hanging heavy frames.

Please know that any piece of art that is damaged from handling or during the hanging process, DLW Fine Art is not liable for the damage or replacement costs.
