Packaging & Shipping

Packaging

In order to minimise impact on the environment, the principles of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle are used for all packaging. That means your order may arrive to you in a post-consumer reused or recycled cardboard box. Paper-based cushioning products are used where possible and frames are packaged in re-used or biodegradable bubble wrap.


Gift wrapping

All orders come wrapped in tissue paper but if you’d like something a bit dressier, please select the gift wrapping option on the product page. Leave a note with your order if you’d like to include one with your order too – I’ll do my best to forge your handwriting.


Postage

Postage is FREE for ALL orders over $55 – that’s within the ENTIRE WORLD.  For orders less than $55 the postage price will be shown at the checkout!

Fine art prints are sealed in a protective sleeve with backing board and wrapped in tissue paper. Then a cardboard layer is added for protection and anonymity. Perfect for gifting to someone nice, or even better, yourself. Both within NZ and internationall, A4 and A3 sized prints are sent flat, while A2 and A1 are carefully rolled inside poster tubes for extra protection.

To flatten rolled prints for framing or display, simply roll firmly but carefully in the opposite direction to relax the paper.

I aim to ship within 24 hours on business days, though please allow 4-5 business days for framed prints and extra large prints (A1).


Shipping to New Zealand

All orders are dispatched within 1-2 business days. Expected delivery times are estimates. Delivery to rural areas and remote countries, or where your item is dutiable or held by customs may take longer.

Most items are sent by tracked courier. Some smaller items may be sent by standard post. Cards ship within New Zealand for FREE! For all other orders totalling less than $55, shipping is $5.


Shipping Internationally

For the rest of the world, standard international airmail is used, which is insured, however untracked and can take up to 3 weeks to arrive during busy times. Your parcel will be carefully packaged to arrive safely. Cards ship overseas for $3. Everything else is $10. Remember though, if your order totals $55 or more, the shipping is free!

Unfortunately framed orders cannot be shipped overseas due to shear size and likelihood of breakage.

Please note, a customs declaration of the contents and value of the parcel is necessary on all international packages. I am required to fill this in correctly and accurately. This shouldn’t be a problem for most, but be aware that the customer is responsible for any customs charges incurred in the country of arrival and I am not able to refund for packages returned due to unpaid customs fees. Customs declarations are a bit of a party pooper so if the item being sent is for a gift, you will have to run and rip off the customs declaration or pre-inform the recipient to open the parcel with their eyes closed.
