Your pressed wedding bouquet is a treasured keepsake. Whether you choose a pressed flower frame, custom resin preservation, or both, properly caring for your pieces is of utmost importance.
With the right care, your pieces will stand out for years to come as a memorable keepsake. However, always remember that flowers are natural, and fading or color change may occur over time even when care instructions are followed. Fading largely depends on what types of flowers are in your bouquet, and where your piece is displayed.

How to Care for Pressed Flower Frame Designs
1) Keep your Frame Away from Sunlight
All of our frames are protected by 99% UV coated glass, however natural pigmentation in your pressed florals can be affected by sunlight. Hang your frame in a spot where it can be showcased without facing the sun. Great spots include a cozy corner, above your bed, or in your hallway.
2) Avoid Excessive Heat or Humidity
Moisture in your pressed flowers is a huge no-no. Avoid displaying your pressed bouquet frame in your bathroom, sunroom, or above a radiator to keep your pressed flowers in tip-top shape.
3) Handle with Care
We’ve made hanging your frame quick and easy by pre-installing your hanging hardware. Once you’ve found the perfect spot to display your pressed memories, use caution when adhering it to your wall.
When cleaning your frame, use glass cleaner and paper towels to delicately clean the glass. Apply light pressure to your frame to prevent damaging the delicate petals and greenery on the other side.
How to Care for Pressed Floral Resin Designs
1) Display your Resin Keepsakes Away from Sunlight
To prevent your pressed flower resin artwork from yellowing, position it away from sunlight for long-term display. It’s okay to bring out your coasters and resin tray to the patio every once in a while, just make sure to bring them back inside when the party's over!
2) Avoid Heat Exposure
Prolonged heat exposure can warp, soften, and discolor your resin keepsake. Don’t display your resin artwork near an oven, windowsill, radiator, or open flame. That means iced coffee only for your coasters! Piping hot mugs of coffee and tea aren’t ideal for resting on your resin items.
3) Clean with Care
To clean your floral resin pieces, lightly dust the surface using paper towel and water. If necessary, use mild dish soap to gently hand wash any surface stains on your pieces. Never dishwash your resin pieces as this will damage them significantly!
