Is it a signed print? Is it valuable or just a poster?

Did it come in this way? If so, it is NOT your problem. Don't do anything to it. If you do, it will become your problem.

I once had to frame an official portrait of our State Governor. It was a beautiful black and white photo printed on heavy paper with the mattest (?) finish I have ever seen and, of course, his uniform was predominantly black:rolleyes: It had been rolled for posting and the edge of the paper has slightly scuffed the surface at one point.

I pointed it out to the client straight away and with his go-ahead used a cotton bud dipped in rottenstone powder to lightly abrade the scuff and it disappeared like magic.

Disclaimer: The photo could easily have been replaced otherwise I would not have touched it.
