How to Purchase Prints

Most of the photographs on this web site are available as high resolution 13 x 18" colour prints. The process of ordering prints is simple, uncomplicated, and good value. International orders are welcome! Please see below for full details.

Signed Prints Available - send a dedicated print to someone special!

A unique message of your choice is written digitally onto the image before printing. The message can be anything you wish - a dedication to someone special, for example.

To order a dedicated print, please contact me with the special message you require, plus any special instructions regarding font, colour, position, etc. An example can be seen on the right.

Dedicated prints take a little longer to prepare - please allow up to 2 weeks from order.

Pricing is shown below.

Pledge: I guarantee that in exchange for your payment, you will receive beautiful prints to match your order. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied I will either replace the prints or refund your payment, depending on the nature of the problem.

Print Quality
Print quality is paramount. Prints are hand-produced and hand-inspected - each print takes almost one hour to print, inspect, package, label, and post. You may see that the degree of labour is on a very different scale than commercially mass-produced halftone prints. Therefore the prices are not comparable. However the difference really shows in the deep lustre and detail of these Fine Art prints. Prints are made using a fourth generation photographic printer which is widely acclaimed to surpass the quality of traditional wet process photographic printing. Prints are vivid and dynamic with exceptional depth and tonality.

Note: Prints do not have the Astrocruise logo that is on the web-based images.

Print Size
The default print size is 13x18" which I recommend since it fits standard 16x20" frames and makes a wonderful wall display.

Special Requirements
In fact I can supply anything from 8x10" to 30x40" board mounted gloss laminated LightJet prints (please see the picture to the right as an example). Please contact me if you have any special requirements and I will be pleased to help.

Prints are hand-produced with each print taking nearly an hour, but for the quality offered we believe these prices represent excellent value:
