Note on Shipping:

Did you know that I only charge a flat rate for shipping for greeting cards, art prints and calendars regardless of how many you purchase?

You just pay for the biggest item in your cart and then you can add alllll the other cards, prints and calendars for no extra shipping!! I also don’t charge extra for Rural delivery (I got you country folk, I was raised in the wop wops 😊)

So, say you buy an A4 art print – within NZ shipping is $7.50 (this is what I get charged, no markup from me). Then you add a calendar, wait 2 calendars for both your sisters-in-law. Then 8 greeting cards and 3 more A4 art prints… you will still only pay $7.50 shipping.

I also have a free pickup option for my local peeps. Just select ‘Free Local Pickup’ from the shipping options in checkout and you won’t pay a thing for shipping. And let’s be honest, I usually hand deliver them if I am going past!

International folks

The shipping from NZ is really expensive for us (the downside of living on a beautiful island in the middle of nowhere). But same deal, you only pay one flat rate for the largest item. So, same price for 1 art print as it is for 10… or more! (I mean if you want to order 1500 art prints, I will be so frikken grateful for the order I am happy to shout you the extra shipping, even if you live in Antarctica!).

Packaging my items as beautifully and safely as I possibly can is one of my favorite things. I try to use as much recycled packaging as I can. However, I am not perfect, and am totally open to suggestions! I have an awesome record of items arriving perfectly. People always comment how beautiful their package was to open.

I even had an A3 print that went all the way to Italy and back (delivery address issue at the Italian end) and while the packaging was a little tatty, the art print inside was still perfect!!

Shipping Charges Discrepancy

Occasionally I have had an issue on third party sites overcharging the shipping. But I have worked out how to refund part of the shipping, so I just put that back through to the customer – even if it is only $2.80, I got you.

The other items on my website are not items I keep in stock in my office studio in Stoke, Nelson, NZ. They are printed on demand and shipped by my awesome collaboration partners from all over the world. I love print on demand, it means I can offer a huge range of high quality items with no wastage. Nothing is created until you order it, and then it is printed just for you. So the shipping rates are set by them and not something I have any control over.

Channy the Chamois Greeting Card

Chamois are found throughout the high country of the South Island and in some lowland forests. From the Marlborough Sounds in the north to Fiordland in the south. They are renowned for their ability to occupy a range of mountain habitats. And will spread into lower altitude forest areas especially on the West Coast. Chamois are agile and graceful animals, originally from Europe.

Alpine chamois arrived in New Zealand in 1907 as a gift from the Austrian Emperor, Franz Joseph I. In exchange for specimens of living ferns, rare birds and lizards. Mr Albert E.L. Bertling, formerly head keeper of the Zoological Society’s Gardens, Regents Park, London. Accepted an invitation from the New Zealand Government to deliver a consignment of chamois (two bucks and six does) to the colony.

They arrived in Wellington, New Zealand, on 23 January 1907, on board the SS Turakina. From Wellington the chamois were transhipped to the Manaroa and conveyed to Lyttelton. Then by rail to Fairlie in South Canterbury and a four-day horse trek to Mount Cook. The first surviving releases were made in the Aoraki / Mount Cook region. These animals gradually spread over much of the South Island.
