Information about selecting and buying prints

Selecting a print type

If you would like to obtain a print of one of the images showcased on this site, just click the Buy Print or License button which is located just above each image in our galleries. From there select the Prints tab for regular prints or the Products tab for ready-to-hang prints.

Regular prints

Regular prints are prints that are not yet matted and framed. The Prints tab offers the following paper types:

Glossy

A paper with a smooth high-gloss reflective finish, that enhances the apparent contrast, sharpness and vibrance.

Paper: Kodak Professional Supra Endura VC Glossy.

Lustre

Lustre paper has a semi-gloss finish with a subtle pearl-like texture and vibrant colors.

Paper: Kodak Professional Supra Endura VC Lustre.

True B&W

A special cotton-based paper, with excellent black density, contrast and image sharpness as well as a matte finish, which gives B&W images a superb continuous tone.

Paper: Canson Infinity Baryta

Fine Art Velvet

A special soft, delicate and 100% cotton paper with a matte surface. It has a similar look and feel as a watercolour paper.

Paper: Breathing Color Pura Velvet

Giclée
Bamboo

A natural white matte paper, made from bamboo fibres, with a smooth surface. This paper is very suitable for warm-toned color and monochrome prints.

Giclée
FineArt Pearl

A bright white paper with a pearl-like semi-gloss finish, enabling impressive contrasts and pictorial depth in both black & white and color photography.

Paper: Hahnemühle Fine Art Pearl

Giclée
Torchon

A bright white matte paper with a rough textured surface. Perfect for images that rely on mood rather than fine details (think foggy morning shots, forest scenes, etc).

Paper: Hahnemühle Torchon

Giclée
Watercolor

A natural white, 100% cotton rag based matte paper. The mould-made watercolor paper features a distinct textured surface.

Paper: Hahnemühle William Turner

If you intend to frame your print under plexiglass or glass, we recommend selecting one of the matte or semi-gloss finishes. This reduces reflection and the glass also adds a certain amount of gloss look to the print.

Ready-to-hang prints

The Products tab gives you a choice of the following ready-to-hang products:

Standout

The selected photo is printed on lustre paper with a semi-gloss finish and then mounted on lightweight foam with a 3/4” deep black edge. Holes are added to the backside making it ready to hang as soon as it arrives.

Premium gallery wrap

The selected photo is printed on canvas with a matte finish and then wrapped around a 1.5” wooden frame by hand. Black or white borders are optional. A gallery wrap is ready to hang as soon as it arrives.

Standouts and gallery wraps are available in various sizes. Please, feel free to contact us in case you cannot find an appropriate size. Custom print sizes are available upon request.

Proceeding to checkout

Once you have selected a print, you can add it to your cart and then choose to either continue shopping or to proceed to checkout. If you choose to continue shopping, you can proceed to checkout later by accessing the cart via the My Cart link in the main menu for this site.

Click the Checkout button, once you are ready to proceed with your purchase. You can choose to either log in or to proceed as a guest. Subsequently, you will be asked to enter a shipping address, choose a shipping method and to provide an email address (if not logged in).

Selecting your shipping method

Prints are shipped either from the US or the UK. In general, prints will be created on demand and shipped within 72 hours of you placing your order. The speed of the actual delivery will largely depend on the shipping method you choose upon checkout. Shipping rates are automatically calculated based on the shipping method as well as the destination of the shipment.

Making a payment

When you select Checkout, you will be taken to our PayPal website over a secure connection to complete the payment for the purchase. Payments are made in US dollar, either by credit card or by using a PayPal account.

Please do not hesitate to contact us, in case you prefer to pay via direct bank transfer in USD, EUR or CHF. We’d be happy to provide you with an invoice and payment instructions for such a transfer.

All set!

Once the payment has been remitted, you will see an on-screen invoice that summarizes your purchase and you will also receive an email confirmation that contains the details. You will receive a second email once the print has shipped.

Handle your print with care!

To keep the prints looking great, they must be handled with care and preferably framed right away. Avoid overly rubbing the surface! The delicate surface of especially the velvet, true B&W and giclée papers is less resistant to scratches than other kinds of prints.

Return policy

Prints are carefully packed. Should your print however be damaged in transit, please let us know directly after your print arrives. We will need you to attach a photograph of the damaged print and packaging. Once we have confirmed the damage, you will be sent a replacement free of charge.

Please note that we cannot be held responsible for damage occurred during framing or mounting the print.
