Unframed art prints take between 10 working days
Framed art prints take 21 working days
Photo prints take between 5 and 7 working days
PLEASE NOTE: premium delivery is not available on any of these products
Out-of-stock items. Please allow up to 28 days for delivery of out-of-stock items.
Deliveries to the UK are usually delivered by Parcelforce: They will not deliver the package if there is no one present to accept it – instead they will take it to the Parcelforce depot for collection or delivery on an alternative day. We strongly recommend that you supply an address where there will always be someone present to receive the delivery.
Deliveries abroad are delivered by Parcelforce International: Again, we strongly recommend that you supply an address where there will always be someone present to sign for the delivery.
Delivery packaging: Unframed paper prints are delivered in a hard cardboard tube. Framed prints are packed into a double-walled mailing box with corner protectors and bubble wrap to prevent damage during delivery. They are further protected in their box by loose chippings/air bags.
