Pricing, postage and Stuff

The print sizes and options available are detailed below the 'Buy Now' button. Pressing the 'Buy Now' button or selecting any of the options doesn't commit you to buying and you can remove items from your basket at any time prior to paying by paypal. Postage and packaging costs specific to your order are also detailed at that point.

However if you are like me you like to know pricing details before getting that far. If that's the case here's an outline.


The basics

Most if not all images are available in three print sizes and two options as follows


A5 print mounted on A4 white mount board. Your print is mounted on a 1.5mm thick mount board. The outside edges are cut to fit a standard A4 frame. Price is £12.50.

A4 print only. Your high quality image, priced at £19, will be printed on A4 glossy photographic paper, rolled and packaged inside a postal tube.

A4 mounted on white mount board. Your print is mounted on a 1.5mm thick white mount board. The outside edges are cut to fit a standard 16" x 12" frame. Price is £24.

A3 print only. Your high quality image, priced at £34, will be printed on A3 glossy photographic paper, rolled up and packaged inside a postal tube.

A3 mounted on white mount board. Your print is mounted on a 1.5mm thick white mount board. The edges surrounding the print itself are cut as a 45 degree bevel and is custom sized to your image size. The outside edges are cut to fit a standard 20" x 16" frame. Price is £39.


A4 or A3?

I'd suggest that wildlife images are generally better purchased in A4 and landscape and seascape images in A3. Somehow landscapes and seascapes have a much greater impact in large sizes and whilst this 'rule' does applies to wildlife images to a certain extent, the impact maybe doesn't justify the extra expense.

Also consider where you are hanging the image - in a small room or a large room? A small print can get lost in a large room and a large print can dominate a small room.


Postal charges

A5 prints on an A4 mount are posted in an A4 envelope with strengtheners either side of the mounted print to protect it during the postal process. Postage and packaging is £2.50.

A4 and A3 glossy prints are posted rolled up inside postal tubes. A4 and A3 prints mounted on mount board are sent in a large cardboard envelope. Both tubes and flat envelope are viewed by the post office as a 'medium parcel' and attract a first class (signed for) cost of £6.80. I have no control over this at all and forms the basis for your postage costs.

Up to five mount boards can fit inside one flat envelope - consequently the same delivery charge applies to up to five items ordered.

Ironically the international postal charge for exactly the same items is not much more expensive - this allows me to ship internationally at the same cost.


You are local and want to avoid postal charges?

Alternatively if you are local to Lee on the Solent (20-30 miles) and wish to pop by to pick up, do send me a note before ordering and we will sort something out to avoid postal charges. And it is entirely possible I can deliver myself if you live locally and don't mind waiting a day or two.


If there is anything I am missing here, do drop me a note!
