View Full Version : Contact information labels

10-09-2004, 11:51 AM
A friend of mine suggested that I make up contact information labels and stick them on the back of the paintings so that it would be readily available if a customer wanted to contact me.

Does anyone do this or would it risk harm to the painting? I don't know how to determine if labels are acid free or not.

Thanks for your input on this suggestion.

I put a descriptive label on the back together with an adress sticker.

I have a label that has my photo, a very short biography, my website address and telephone number. If I sell a painting in a frame, I glue the label to the back of the frame. If I sell a painting unframed, I just send a label along with the painting, and suggest to the buyer that they glue it to the back of the frame when they have it framed... that way they can always tell where it came from. Since my label doesn't get glued to the actual painting, I don't worry about acid-free issues.
