Care in handling
Protection you can see through
Your print is protected in its own CrystalView archival cellophane sleeve which keeps it dust-free and smudge free and ensures that you’ll get the product as near to perfect as humanly possible. You may opt to keep your print within its sleeve, and why not? It will continue to keep your print safe and is glare-free to boot. If you can’t decide, don’t worry. The cellophane sleeve is resealable.
For archival storage, the print is mounted with archival-quality, removable microdots on an acid-free backing. Gently lifting the print to separate the two will allow the print to be mounted and framed. If you do frame the piece, we recommend using UV glass to protect the image from sunlight, which can discolor the print.
Safe in shipping
The non-descript brown envelope is certainly misleading. Aside from the Curio & Co. stamp on the front, it barely hints at the fantastic artwork contained inside. Still, it has to be plain because it’s got to be sturdy. The only way we can sleep at night is by knowing that your print won’t get knocked around or snagged on anything. And that brown envelope – in comforting, durable cardboard – puts our minds at rest. Plus, it’s acid-free and fully recyclable. So you can put your environmental worries aside and get a good night’s sleep too.
Tagged from us to you
That tag you find is another sign that you’ve got a genuine Curio & Co. item in your hands. You can snip off the tag if you like – which will feel great, knowing that the print is all yours now! – or you can slip the tag through the knot to get to the envelope’s pull tab. The envelope flap’s seal will keep the tag on the envelope so you can keep a record of what’s inside.
Giving the item as a gift? What a terrific friend you are! In that case, you can write the name of your sure-to-be grateful friend on the reverse of the tag, and your wrapping is done! We won’t ever slip the bill or any other pesky sign of your item’s purchase history in the envelope, so feel free to keep your secret of what a great deal you got.

Join Curio & Co, for a look at Horror Stories of Creating Comics.
We are thrilled to be organizing a discussion panel at Comic-Con this year, and we hope you can join us.
The panel, called ‘Horror Stories of Creating Comics: How to produce tricky books’, will be chock-full of behind-the-scenes stories of making some of the most interesting books around. We’ll be discussing the red flags to watch out for on the long journey to get the details right… with our friends Calista Brill (Senior Editor, First Second Books), Peter Maresca (Editor, Sunday Press Books) and Dave Marshall (Editor, Dark Horse Comics) and sharing hilarious stories of where things went wrong.
Producing complicated and unusual books takes more than just ink and paper – sometimes it takes blood, sweat and tears. For anyone who’s ever been interested in making their own books, join us for this funny but informative discussion!
Thursday July 24th from 8-9PM in Room 30 CDE at the San Diego Convention Center.
