If your print is hung in an area that is dry and well venerated and does not receive any direct sunlight, it should last for many decades.
In our experience and according to many experts, the best place to hang any artwork is out of direct sunlight in a dry and well ventilated location.
Your print represents a investment in art and is well worth taking good care of. If you have purchased an un-framed print, either store it in a sealed environment that is clean and dry or get it framed as soon as possible. Sealing the back of the frame will prevent most bugs from making a home in the gaps.
