Bespoke portraits

Professionally painted

Postage and packaging:

All my packaging materials are designed to send original framed and unframed artwork.   I use Kite Packaging's products to ensure a very high standard of security and protection for your pet portrait.

The order of packaging is as follows:

1.  The pet portrait is wrapped  carefully in acid-free tissue paper and sealed with acid-free pH neutral tape.

2.  Then it is sandwiched between two pieces of foam core board which are then closed with masking tape.

3.  Bubble-wrap is then applied for extra protection.

4.  Extra packaging card is added for even more protection.

5.  It is then put into the purpose made box (telescopic/flat).

6.  The box is then sealed with plenty of strong tape.

7.  "Fragile" tape is then applied to the box to highlight that there is a fragile item inside.

8.  The address label and sender details are then put under a waterproof covering.

I use  either the Parcelforce (Royal Mail) 48 hour delivery service or their special delivery service to deliver all of my artwork.  I have found them to be very trustworthy and have never had any complaints from previous clients.

My postage and packaging charges (United Kingdom) start from £19.99 for a single unframed portrait.  For framed portraits which are heavier, (very bulky and robust packaging) extra postal charges will apply and typically costs £26.99 - however the very large sized portraits can be £65 to send insured and tracked with Royal Mail within the UK (as the cost of the enhanced compensation/insurance rises with the larger sizes). 

You can specify a delivery date once I have informed you that the portrait is ready for despatch.

My Store items delivery charges:

1.  For Prints please select Medium Sized delivery at the checkout in my store

2.  For greetings cards please select Small sized delivery at the checkout in my store

Typically 3 - 5 days delivery (UK).  Overseas deliveries will take longer than this.

Overseas deliveries:

I can quote for overseas postage and packaging if you are outside the United Kingdom. Postal costs are governed by weight - and every attempt is made to minimise the parcel's weight for air mail.  I use air packaging inside the parcel to give stability to the packing.
