Prints and costings

Most of the pictures in the Gallery are available for purchase. Please contact me on 0777 647 5992 or via the Contact tab at the top of the page with any requests for prints.

Prints (free posting in the UK)
All images are printed on professional lustre-style photographic paper (typically Ilford, Permajet or Fotospeed), using an Epson R3000 printer with Epson Ultra Chrome K3 inks. The image is printed with a faint black border with image title centred underneath, and signed in ink at the bottom right.

Costs are as follows:
Print sizes are approximate, and depend on the crop of the image. In some instances, I may re-crop an image to fit more naturally within the boundaries of the photographic paper.

- A4 print (approx 26x17cm): £55
- A3 print (approx 38x25cm): £75
- A3+ print (approx 44x29cm): £95
- Panoramic print (approx 50 to 110cm long, 26cm high): between £125 and £275

For larger print sizes up to 2 metres in length, or for a different medium (eg, canvas), call me for a quote.

Bespoke framing (not for posting)
I use the services of Woodstocks on Duke Street in Macclesfield. As a standard, I request a stained black wood frame and a high-quality white textured mount with a black core (typically 8cm width around the image). If you require a different frame colour and mount, then please let me know, but if you require a specific colour of mount and/or frame to go with your print to match internal decor, it is probably easier for you to buy only the print and take it to a professional framers yourself so that your colour needs can be precisely matched.

Please allow between 2 and 3 weeks after placing your order. Note that in the run up to Christmas, the last date on which to place an order for guaranteed framing before Christmas is usually towards the end of November.

Costs for bespoke framing are as follows:
- Frame for A4 print: £50 - making the total cost of the framed print £105
- Frame for A3 print: £60 - making the total cost of the framed print £135
- Frame for A3+ print: £70 - making the total cost of the framed print £165
- Frame for panoramic print: Ranges from about £80 (50cm print) to £140 (110cm print), plus cost of the print

Postage and packaging
Prints will be posted free of charge in the UK, using Royal Mail. Please allow up to 5 working days after your payment has cleared.

For postage outside the UK, please contact me for a quote.

Please note that we are not able to post framed prints. These would need to be collected in person in Macclesfield (Cheshire), or I could deliver within a 20-mile radius of Macclesfield (free of charge).
