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.

Kakabeak Art Print.

Kākābeak earns its name from its stunning red flowers. Clustered in groups of 15-20 blooms, resembling the beak of the kaka bird.

Ngutukākā holds special significance in New Zealand, with two species—Clianthus puniceus and Clianthus maximus. Facing severe threats of extinction in the wild. Classified as Nationally Critical, it exists solely in New Zealand, with its closest relative found in Australia.

The name Ngutukākā derives from its striking red flowers, grouped in clusters of 15-20 blooms. Resembling the beak of the native parrot, the kaka.

Ngutukākā boasts long-lived seeds capable of germinating even after 30 years, forming a seed bank poised to sprout when conditions permit. This adaptive feature enables it to thrive in intermittently disturbed shrubland, seizing opportunities following natural events like tree falls or landslides.

Reaching heights of 2-3 meters, Ngutukākā produces lengthy trailing stems that propagate new plants upon contact with the soil, enabling extensive coverage from a single parent plant.

As a member of the pea family, Ngutukākā possesses nitrogen-fixing abilities, thriving in nutrient-poor environments.

Found in the wild in limited numbers—approximately 150 known plants—Ngutukākā enjoys cultivation elsewhere, though details regarding genetic diversity and origins remain sparse. Historically used for gifting and trading by Maori, its original distribution remains uncertain, with reported sightings in various regions including Northland, Auckland, Great Barrier Island, Coromandel, Lake Waikaremoana, East Cape, and Hawke’s Bay.

Ngutukākā prefers open, sunny, steep locations, often on rocky outcrops, cliffsides, or lake and stream edges. While relatively short-lived, it can persist for 15-20 years in suitable conditions.
