Delivery Information

UK shipping is FREE of charge on all UK orders for Fine Art Prints and Canvas Prints.

Shipping on overseas orders will be charged at cost separately. It is not practical to calculate postage costs to every country. If shipping charges are similar to the UK postage charge no additional fee will be charged, but in cases where the shipping cost is significantly more you will be charged the difference of UK postage and the cost of shipping to the destination at cost price and send a request for payment via PayPal or by telephone.

Dispatch Times

We aim to ship Fine Art Prints within 24 hours on business days if possible, but please call or email if you're in a hurry so we can advise you of current turnaround.

Canvas Prints are made to order and the normal turnaround is between 5-6 days. Delivery is by next day courier, usually UPS.

Special Requirements

If you require a print or canvas in a shorter timeframe please let me know in the comments box when you place your order, or via the contact page and we will do everything we can to accommodate where possible.

Please note that although we strive to ship as soon as we can, we have no control of the actual delivery time once it is in the hands of the post office or courier.

Print Production

Fine Art Prints

All fine art prints are produced in-house. They are printed on Fotospeed Archival Papers and printed with Wide Gamut Pigment Ink, which provide the best colour quality, control, stability and lightfastness on the market. A selection of lustre and matt papers are kept in stock and images are printed on the media which provide the best result for the individual image. Custom made colour icc profiles are used to ensure the highest level of control of colour reproduction. All papers and inks used are approved by The Fine Art Trade Guild.

We have recently invested in the latest wide format Canon Image Prograf PRO-4000 and print all orders in house, including our canvas prints.

Canvas Prints

Print Production
Images are printed at the highest resolution using a custom profile for both canvas and paper to achieve accurate colour and neutral black & whites. We recalibrate our screens and printers regularly to ensure optimum accuracy.

Canvas Quality and Longevity
Our canvas is certified ‘Archival Quality’ by the ‘Fine Art Trade Guild’. It is superior in its exceptional colour reproduction. It does not contain whitening agents like cheaper canvases, so the image remains consistent over time.Canvases with whitening agents will eventually discolour.

Varnish
We use a Museum Grade Matte Giclee Veneer that further enhances the print quality and offers protection from scuffs and moisture. It also eliminates cracking. Cheaper produced canvases can start cracking on the edges quite quickly

Frames (Stretcher Bars)
The stretcher bars are made of solid pine from sustainable forests. Cheap canvas suppliers usually use very lightweight fir wood bars that are not built to last. My bars are still light enough for canvases to hang easily on standard picture hooks but have a much more solid and robust feel.

Post Production
Images are prepared for printing individually on order. Some images have plenty of room compositionally just to be printed and wrapped, leaving the subject on the front face of the canvas, others require some photoshop work to clone some extra space around the edges. This is normally indistinguishable and in on the sides, top and bottom of the canvas in any case.

Overseas Orders
Due to considerable shipping costs and the fragile nature of canvas prints and to ensure that your order arrives in perfect condition, orders for Canvas Prints outside the UK will be shipped rolled and packed into a large tube. You will need to get a local framer or art supplier to stretch it onto stretcher bars (not included). This is a standard procedure and not expensive. Please contact us in advance of ordering so we can calculate a discount to factor in the reduced cost of production.
