Good Morning Team,

I searched and found a couple of talking points but no real substance on what people are doing with wood and metal prints to get them onto the wall. I recently came across two wood prints(oak and maple) unexpectedly and now have an aluminum print on my purchase list for the future.

The artist himself said he didn't put any of his wood prints behind glass. But the fact that the ink is printed on wood or aluminum doesn't somehow render it UV proof does it?

And if it doesn't, how are people putting these behind glass? Would love some ideas.

Thanks in advance.
