ORDERING Fine Art Prints on YOUR CHOICE of Art Print Media
I am now offering my artworks for sale as FINE ART PRINTS on the art print media of YOUR CHOICE !!
The amount of different printing and framing options available are stagering (check out this page), and to include them on one website that integrates an online e-commerce shop is not a viable option for me.
Many people looking for art have already a good idea of what printing and framing option they like and the style that will best fit their home or office. For me to just include a few printing options and variations will always mean that such a selection will not suite some potential buyers.
Therefore, if you already have a printing media you most prefer (and are interested in buying prints of my artworks), let me know your preferances in as much detail as possible, and I will send you a quote according to your specifications. If you already have used or know of a PROFESSIONAL online printer in your country, send me a link to the specific page on their website that describe the printing (and framing if applicable) they offer that you are interested in.
If you are unsure which image from my selection will best fit your space, I offer a free service where I will help you decide. Please have a look at this page for more information.
As an example, below is a list of PROFESSIONAL online printing companies that I am prepared to use and that offer a great variety of printing and framing options to give you an idea of what is available on the market. Please take note that I may choose not to use a specific company (that you may prefer), or may choose not to use a specific printing/framing option from any company that I may perceive as inferior in quality or problematic in production.
These are just a few examples of renowed professional printers. Feel free to indicate your own preferences when communication with me. Check out this page that shows the options available from WhiteWall as an example of the many variations available to buyers.
One of the biggest drawbacks of buying fine art prints online and sending them by international courier to foreign destinations is the huge variation in postage fees, which are depended on size, weight, format and country. To try and incorporate such varied information inside an e-commerce shopping cart of an artist's website is unrealistic, especially as I am offering now (in theory at least) any printing type, media & framing of your choice for my artworks.
Just let me know what you prefer, and I will provide you with a quote that includes printing, framing (if applicable) and postage, according to your specifications.
To send large framed prints (larger than 90cm on the longest side) by international courier becomes VERY EXPENSIVE. I will try, AS FAR AS POSSIBLE, to find a printer in your country that can produce prints & framing according to the best professional standards, and they will send the fiished artwork directly to you. You will therefore save hugely on postage cost.
How much does my artworks cost:
In general, I charge between 2 times to 5 times the price of the printing and framing. Postage is excluded from this calculation. For very large expensive artworks I will charge proportionally less (in comparison to the printing & framing cost) than for small cheap-to-print artworks.
For example, a small unframed photo print may cost €15 to print, and I may charge €75, excluding postage, while a very large UltraHD Photo Print under Acryl Glass may be €850 to print & produce, and I may charge €1700 excluding postage.
How much will courier fees be:
Courier fees to destinations in Germany is free of charge for normal courier. Express courier fees are extra to all destinations, including within Germany.
Courier fees to all other destination outside of Germany are extra and can only be provided after I have all the details about your choice of artwork, size, printing and framing, your full courier address and cellphone number, etc.
Which payment options are available to you:
You can pay me for my artworks via PayPal (you do not need a PayPal account to pay with your credit card using their platform). You can also pay me via a bank transfer to my German bank account if you are living in Europe or the United States, or to my Namibian bank account if you are living in Southern Africa.
Communication by email takes time:
Communication by email for orders is required, and as I do not offer a shopping cart, it should be clear to you that this is not a quick ordering process. However, if you have clear ideas of what you prefer in terms of which artwork, the size, and the printing & framing, I should be able to provide you with a quote within two days.
I am offering exclusive artworks according to the unique preferences of clients, and this takes time. I will do everything necessary to try and fulfill your requirements & provide you with a quote asap. I want you to be 100% satisfied with your choice of artwork purchased from me.

Please take note that the signature name (watermark) on the artworks on this website are proportionally much larger and bolder than the digital signature on the real prints.
