Photographs ordered as prints will be packaged in the following ways:

Prints are made on archival, professional quality paper which I consider best reflects the quality of my images. You should still avoid placing your print near any heat source or in direct sunlight but under 'normal' conditions you can be assured that your print will stand the test of time.
Processing and Delivery
Print orders should be with you within 10 working days of placing an order and generally a lot sooner because they come straight to you from the professional print maker I use via their courier. If for any reason there is a delay I will contact you by email to advise and if you don't receive your print within this timescale please inform me.
Delivery within the UK is via Royal Mail standard first class delivery and is included for all print orders. Recorded or signed for delivery is available at your request and expense.
If you need a print to be sent abroad a surcharge will apply to cover the cost to your destination. If you are an international customer please contact me when you are ready to submit your order to confirm delivery costs as they vary from country to country.
Ever effort has been made to ensure that print you receive is of the highest quality.
