I have wholesale options for all of these if you are a retailer, so please get in touch via my contact page. I would love to work with you!

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. 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!)

I package my items as beautifully and safely as I possibly can and use as much recycled packaging as I can. However, I am not perfect, and am totally open to suggestions! I do 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 Overcharging 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.

I don’t keep the other items on my website in stock at my office studio in Stoke, Nelson, NZ. Instead, they are printed on demand and shipped by my collaboration partners worldwide. I’m a big fan of print on demand. It allows me to offer a wide variety of high-quality items without any waste. Nothing is made until you order it, and then it’s printed specifically for you. As a result, the shipping rates are determined by my partners, and I have no control over them.

Discovering the Majestic Mt Cook Buttercup

This iconic New Zealand native, Ranunculus lyallii, commonly known as the Mount Cook Buttercup. It flourishes in sub-alpine to alpine environments stretching from Marlborough to Stewart Island at elevations ranging from 700 meters to 1500 meters. Known for its massive stature — up to 1.6 meters tall — and oversized leaves reaching 40 centimeters across. This botanical marvel captivates visitors with its striking beauty. Its unique adaptation includes cup-shaped leaves that retain water after rainfall, providing refreshment for hikers who pause to sip from them. As the buttercup often grows near rocky terrain, it features stomata on both sides of its leaves. This allows efficient gas exchange regardless of whether the rocks are heated by the sun. To thrive, the Mount Cook Buttercup demands specific environmental conditions such as abundant sunlight, excellent drainage, and moderate shade in hot regions. Contrary to popular belief, it is intolerant of high nutrient levels in soil.

Exploring the Evolutionary Mechanisms Behind Survival

The Mount Cook Buttercup shares a common trait with other members of the Ranunculaceae family: its ability to regulate stomatal opening according to changing temperatures. During the day, when rocks absorb solar radiation, the stomates located beneath the leaves remain closed, preventing excessive water loss. However, as night falls and the rocks cool, the stomates reopen, ensuring optimal gas exchange throughout the plant’s life cycle. These evolutionary mechanisms enable the Mount Cook Buttercup to survive in challenging alpine environments. Where resources may be scarce yet demand careful management. By understanding these processes, we gain valuable insights into nature’s strategies for success under extreme circumstances.
