Printing Pricing and My Guarantee

Print  quality & my guarantees 


Machine prints done by high volume labs offering low prices and quick turnaround cannot be considered fine art. For this reason, I use giclee printr incredibly rich and detailed fine art print with exceptional quality that retains minute detail, subtle tints and blends otherwise lost in standard prints.


Giclee print is done  using specialist printers, archival quality, fade-resistant inks and acid free art  papers. so you can be sure your picture will not fade or deteriorate over time. (well, at least for a hundred , two hundred years we will not need to worry about that. ..)  

 My print quality is  under a lifetime guarantee.  If you see any deterioration in colour or fading over time I offer an exchange on receipt of the damaged item.  This is regardless of how long ago you have purchased your picture. I would however not recommend hanging your print in the direct sunlight without protective glass/ plexiglass surface. 


   My prints are released in numbered limited editions,  signed . At the back you will find a price tag and a certificate of authenticity with your  edition number.  


   They will be shipped  in a protective tube. The price tag , the certificate of authenticity and edition number will be included . 


   Some of my customers may remember my prints being shipped flat and matted.  I decided it would be more convenient to ship them in the tube ; it also substantially cuts the postage costs added to your purchase. 


   Similarly,  I decided I will leave the matting to you as it is better to choose the right colour/shade when you actually have the print in your hands. You may  also choose not to leave any margin around your print (that how I display my framed pictures in the gallery "How It May Look In Your Home")

   If you live locally (Bristol area) you are welcome to pick up your print in person which will  obviously save you the shipping costs. 


   I appreciate that acquiring a fine art is a substantial investment and therefore I would like to give you  a reassurance of my guarantees. 


   If for some reason, your print becomes damaged during shipping , I offer you a full refund or an exchange following the  receipt of the damaged item.


   The framed artwork displayed on your wall will be your everyday companionI  and its is essential that you feel  emotional connection with it. It should enrich your direct environment  making you feel inspired  and uplifted. But what if this somehow does not happen,  what if you feel that you made a wrong decision on a whim or an impulse?  


  I can appreciate it might sometimes happen and therefore in case you change your mind after purchase, you are welcome send it back for a full refund within 1 months period or exchange it, if you wish to chose a different artwork from my gallery.  


Pricing

   Currently, I offer prints in one size which is their natural  pixel count size to ensure the best resolution and quality (on some occasions the size range might be  extended, please click on the picture in the gallery for  the details) 


   As you might have noticed , my artwork varies in sizes  therefore the below is  an approximate guide  serving  as a point of departure to allow for slight variations ( this is especially the case with large panoramic prints due to their different dimensions).


   The exact price is quoted below the descriptive text accompanying the artwork . 


Approximate price linked to the print  size example:

25 inches (65 cm) x 25 inches (65 cm) : £650


   The above does not include  shipping costs which will be specified shortly on a separate sheet to offer you guidance on your total investment. 

   If you are interested in a series, triptych,  or several pictures, I a  offer 10% discount on multiple orders. 


Additionally, the price is  increasing through the life cycle of  an edition reflecting the number of available prints.


So, what to do if you are considering purchasing my artwork? 

   

You may be slightly  confused as there is no" Buy" button, no cart.  

 This is for several reasons.    


Firstly, the host fulfilled prints are  just standard lab prints, there is no giclee   option. There is also no way I can proof them myself. Secondly,  this  significantly adds to the cost and I am trying to keep my prices as  affordable as possible.


 So with with all this in mind, the process is as follows:


~Please send me a message  (top right corner envelope on my home page) with the title of the picture. Please include your full name, postal address;  a telephone number would also be helpful. 


~I will respond with the link to this artwork and a thumbnail of the picture to confirm and avoid mistakes. I will include postage cost information taking into account the size of the print and your location. 


~If at this stage you are decided to order, you can either proceed with PayPal payment or a bank transfer. 


~Upon receiving the payment I will respond with an email confirmation and receipt and,  send the picture file to my trusted printer. It is important the payment is cleared at this stage as the giclee printing costs are significant especially with large prints. 


~ the printing takes usually up to 7-10 days, most often  quicker than that. 


~ I will notify you once your artwork is sent. In UK it I will arrive by Royal Mail signed for delivery.  


~Final, the most exciting part of the process: you are receiving  your print!
