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!)
I package my items as beautifully and safely as I possibly can and use as much recycled packaging as I can – I am not perfect, and am totally open to suggestions! I have an awesome record of items arriving perfectly and 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!!
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.
Rococo Sea Shells
The Rococo first emerged in France during the 1720s and 30s as a style developed by craftspeople and designers rather than architects, which explains why it is found primarily in furniture, silver and ceramics.
Rococo takes its name from the French word ‘rocaille’, which means rock or broken shell – natural motifs that often formed part of the designs, along with fish and other marine decorations. The acanthus leaf (Acanthus mollis), or rather a heavily stylised version of it, was also a signature motif. Another key feature of the design is its curved asymmetric ornamentation, where its forms often resemble the letters ‘S’ and ‘C’, and where one half of the design does not match the other.
Rococo, less commonly Roccoco or Late Baroque, is an exceptionally ornamental and theatrical style of architecture, art and decoration which combines asymmetry, scrolling curves, gilding, white and pastel colours, sculpted moulding, and trompe-l’œil frescoes to create surprise and the illusion of motion and drama.
