All prints are archival quality and are approved by the photographer. We work closely with photographers and estates to ensure that all editions are presented according to their intentions. To be precise, these are digital C-Prints on Fuji Crystal Archive Matte paper. We aim to provide prints of the highest standard that maintain their beauty and value for years to come. Magnum Square Prints are printed on Fuji Crystal archive paper, which minimizes fading. The accompanying text labels as well as all supporting materials are archival, meaning that they are acid-free and will not damage the print or affect its longevity. The usual precautions should be taken to retain a photograph’s depth of tone and contrast, and we recommend that a photograph should not be hung in direct, continuous sunlight.
An estate stamp is used to signify authentication and is issued by the estate of the photographer (photographers who are no longer alive are represented by their estates). All estate stamps are applied individually by hand.
For Magnum Square Prints, the “square” paper size is 6 x 6 in (15.24 x 15.24 cm); image size is 5.5 in (14 cm) on the longest side. Images will not be cropped but will instead have white borders, just like you see them on the Magnum website (

Unfortunately, we are not able to fulfill custom requests.
The color of your print may differ from the color reproduction of any given computer screen as all computers are calibrated differently. Computers are also lit from behind, which can affect the level of brightness of an image.
The Magnum Shop promises to ship your Magnum Square Print(s) as quickly as logistically possible. At the end of the sale, prints will be made and signed by our photographers around the world, or stamped by our estates. Because of this, we cannot offer precise shipping dates. We will begin to fulfill orders after we receive the prints from the photographers or estates. No prints will be shipped later than December 18, 2019.
Once your Square Print(s) ship, we will send a shipping notification to you with a tracking number. We will use the email that was used to place the order. Shipping time will depend on where you live. Please note, customs vary country-to-country, and can delay your shipment. For additional information on customs, please consult customs information.
We use hand-crafted black or white wooden frames (w: 3/4" h: 7/8"). Magnum Square Prints are framed with a white, archival and made-to-measure mat. The prints will then be sealed using archival paper backing. They are wired, ready for hanging with wall-friendly footers. Please note, the photographer’s signature or estate stamp will be hidden by the framing. All frames include UV plexiglass, which comes with ~99% UV protection. All products used in framing are archival quality: Japanese hinging tape, archival text labels and backing papers.
Custom frames are handcrafted by expert framers who give them a contemporary feel. Due to material and hand finishing, all custom frames are unique, and will never look exactly the same.
A photographer’s signature or the estate stamp will be hidden by the framing.
Frames will be made as soon as signed prints are received from respective photographers and stamped prints from respective estates. Everything will be shipped out as soon as possible. All orders will ship no later than December 18, 2019.
