Website Orders & Payments
When you place a order on our website, we will e-mail you to acknowledge receipt of your order and payment.
All payments on this website are processed automatically via Stripe. Stripe offers an industry standard secure on-line payments system. You can use any credit or debit card to pay via Stripe and can even make payments if you do not have an account.
UK cheques and bank transfers can also be accepted as a method of payment. Please contact us if you would like to pay using either of these systems.
Your order will be suitably packaged to prevent damage during transit. Photographic print orders will either be wrapped in a solid carboard protective tube, or packaged flat. Upon receipt of your fine art print, please take great care when opening the print, and ideally get the framer to open it - the surface can be easily scratched, or damaged by moisture, for example from sneezing - please tell the framer this.
Prints which are bonded onto alumiunium ready to hand will be bubble wrapped, and packaged within protective cardboard.
If you have any questions relating to the packaging of orders, please contact us.
