Ordering These Prints (FAQ)

You may view the prices and sizes for any print by looking beneath the full size image. Or see table in this post.

What Will It Cost to Ship Within the United States?

UPS GROUND IS $5

DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONAL?

For international shipping, please email me the following information: Your shipping address, including postal code, and the size and number of prints you plan to purchase. But international shipping is expensive. A typical cost for up to six pounds is $150. Unless you are planning to purchase several prints, it is usually too expensive to ship one print.

It is much less expensive to use the download button beneath the image to license it for personal use and have it printed locally in your own country.

DO YOU OFFER MATS OR FRAMING?

I don’t. The simple reason is that the amount of labor involved (and I did used to offer mats) would force me to increase prices substantially. On top of that, my skills are in printing and photographing, and that’s really what you should be paying for. Framing is a craft and a personal choice and should be discussed between you and the framer.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE PRINT(S)?

Since I print and package each print delivery time depends on how busy I am. I do my best to have prints ready to ship within two weeks. Shipping time is UPS ground and depending on where in the states you live can take from one to four business days. In other words, I’m shipping from New York. If you live in NJ actual ship time would probably be a day + up to two weeks to print and package.

However, if you have a deadline (this often frequently with art buyers, and with items for gifts) let me via email before placing your order. Generally I can meet your deadline. But keep in mind that prints should “cure” - dry properly before being packaged and that really should take at least a few days.

I am available to have prints picked up directly from me if you want to save the one or two days that UPS shipping takes for most parts of the U.S. You should try and arrange this before placing your order.

UPS will not deliver to a P.O. Box.

An adult signature is normally required unless you tell me otherwise.

WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE THE PRINT?

Send it back. You have 60 days to do that. Let me know by e-mail what the problem was. This is an unlikely event in that I am considered an expert printer and if I am doing your print - you can be assured that I will do a good job and that the print will be well-packaged.

WHAT’S INCLUDED WITH THE PRINT?

All prints include a signed and dated Certificate of Authenticity. I don’t offer framing or matting. You’ll also get a sheet with framing and print care instructions.

ABOUT THE PRINT MEDIA

Prints are produced with archival Ultrachrome K3 inks and Epson Gallerie Exhibition F Gloss paper. This is a bright double weight paper with a wide dynamic range, perfect for black and white images. The printer is the Epson Ultrachrome 7800. The print finish (the hand as it is sometimes called) is very similar to an air-dried darkroom double weight graded Ilford Gallerie darkroom paper. Although the paper has “Gloss” in it’s name, it isn’t a glossy paper, and it also isn’t a mat finish, but as I say similar to a darkroom Gallerie fiber print. The actual dynamic range, i.e. from black to white, is probably wider than a similar darkroom print.

  1. Hi,

    I am going to order two photographs now that are 8×10 and 8×12. I am also in need of two photos that are 4×6. Can you offer any of the New York Photography at that size?

    Thank you,
    Amanda
