Step 3 Choose an optional acrylic seal
An Acrylic seal is protective acrylic coating to front of a print, and is especially
useful in protecting prints hung in environments that make them more vulnerable to
being marked or damaged.

The options for acrylic seals are matt, satin, or gloss and all seals are scuff
resistant and help to reduce UV damage to the print itself.
