Taking into account human nature, the most realistic thing that will happen is that you will open the tube and unroll your print yourself – no judgment here, everyone loves opening presents! If you do, please be mindful when manipulating the print and wear soft cotton gloves. You might feel silly doing so but gloves are a must to avoid leaving marks, scratches or fingerprints.
Bring it to a framer as soon as you can. Don’t keep your print rolled up in its tube for too long as it can damage it over time. Besides, art should be seen and enjoyed!
Museum glass (or museum plexiglass) offers the ultimate protection against UV while having no reflection or glare (I don’t know how they do that, it’s magic!). It’s more expensive than regular glass/plexiglass but infinitely better (at least, for people who share my pet peeve).
PRO TIP #2: Finally, dust it when needed. Simply use a soft cloth and computer screen cleaner to wipe the front of the frame and glass and enjoy your art for years to come.
