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.

These charming birds hold a special place as a taonga species cherished by the Māori. Māori maintain a profound cultural, spiritual, and historical bond with them. Known as whio in the North Island or ko whio whio in the South Island, their Māori names reflect the male bird’s call, embodying their vigilant nature where they spot you before you see them and the male issues an alert.

Believed to be an ancient waterfowl species, the whio’s unique anatomical and behavioral traits have evolved due to their long isolation in New Zealand. As an iconic back-country species, the whio is prominently featured on the New Zealand $10 note, symbolizing its significance. Thriving year-round in fast-flowing rivers, the blue duck specializes in river habitats, a rare trait among waterfowl globally.

Serving as a vital indicator of river health, blue ducks thrive in clean, fast-flowing streams with high water quality, stable banks, and diverse invertebrate communities. The presence of breeding pairs signifies a healthier river ecosystem, underscoring their importance in conservation efforts. Endemic to New Zealand, whio/blue ducks are exclusive to this region, making them rarer than some kiwi species.
