Yes they should last a long long time. All the posters are giclée prints on acid free paper with archive quality pigment inks. Keep them out of direct sunlight and preferably behind glass to ensure the greatest longevity.
Where are they delivered? ︎
At the moment to Europe and the UK.
When and how are they delivered? ︎
Each poster is quality controlled and signed before being rolled in craft paper and placed in a sturdy cardboard poster tube ready for dispatch. I aim to get them sent off within a week at most. Then please allow time for the postal service to do its thing. Etsy says it offsets carbon emissions from delivery and packaging on this purchase.
What does delivery cost? ︎
There is no extra cost for delivery.
Do you accept returns? ︎︎︎
Yes, but please have a good look to make sure you or the person you are buying for likes the poster. Double check the dimensions before ordering to see that it fits the place you had in mind. If after recieving a poster you realise that it wasn’t what you wanted after all you may return it up to 14 days after receiving it. It must be returned in the same condition you received it in and in the original packaging. You must pay for return postage yourself, but I can refund the cost of the poster when I have received it. Maybe there is another poster you would like instead?
Are there any discounts or special offers? ︎
Yes occasionally from time to time I may offer discounts. Follow my instagram︎︎︎ for the lastest updates.
What about the colour reproduction on screen? ︎
In most cases there are at least two different images of each poster in different environments to compare and get some idea of the colours. The photos where taken in natural daylight. Unfortunatley computer/phone screens display colours differently and not always accurately.
Are there any other sizes? ︎︎︎︎︎︎
I’m affraid not. Each poster was made with a specific size in mind which is specified on each page. The printed area is a standard poster size (40cm x 50cm or 50cm x 70cm) with an extra approximately 55mm wide white border around the edge.
How are they made? ︎
I create the images on an iPad with the Procreate app and an apple pencil. The pictures I make are inspired by a fascination for synths and sci-fi and my interest in strange machines, architecture and unruly nature.
