Someone just brought me a print he put in a frame and it is starting to stik to the glass. It was made at Moto Photo and I think it's an ink jet print. Anyone have any ideas how to unstick something like that from glass and salvage the print?

Most probably an ink jet image.

Tried it myself but unfortunately it separated the image emulsion and left it on the glass.
Picture framer tried the next one and the same result.

If the print is going to be a total loss anyway, try a heat gun or hair dryer. Heating sticky things often causes them to become unsticky temporarily. Very gently get hold of a corner and pull gently while brushing the hair dryer back and forth over the front of the glass. As the glass heats up, the print should let go.

If the print has actually reacted chemically with the glass, you're probably screwed. But heat should loosen it if it's just stuck.

OK, I know this is going to sound dumb... but here is what I did....

I used to collect stamps... when trying to get a stamp of of an envelope (back when I was a lot younger, and a bit stupider... I would hold the envelope with the stamp down..over a kettle of water on the stove. When the steam would come up thru the little hole in the kettle lid, the stamp could be removed by gently pulling it off the envelope. The hot steam would make the glue release it's hold. I would hold it hig enough to not get burnt, nor let the stamp get to moist.

A few years ago I had a photograph that I wanted to have a lab make a copy of, and it was stuck to the glass. I remembered the steam trick.. and decided to try it.. I held it a bit further away from the kettle than I did the stamps.. and it took a bit longer, but it worked, and the photograph came loose.. The print was not ruined, and I took my time.. but it worked.

Trying this worked for me, but If you try it, be careful of your fingers, and keep it just about atthe top of the steam column.. take your time, and don't rush it..
