Secret Postcard Sale

This is one secret that you shouldn’t keep to yourself!

We’ve created a unique postcard which will feature as part of the Made in Essex Secret Postcard Sale alongside 99 other fabulous creations.

The sale will raise money for an incredible local project run by the charity, Metal, providing art classes for people living with dementia. Follow @metalsouthend and their #netparkwellbeingproject for more info.

You’ll find all 100 postcards (including the Art of Adventure one obviously) on display at 70 The Broadway, Leigh on Sea from Sat 26th Jan – Fri 1st Feb. Pop along and check them out. They’ll also be online afterwards from Saturday 2nd Feb.

If you want to get your hands on a Golden Ticket and the chance to own one of the mini masterpieces, you’ll need to get in early. Tickets go on sale on Saturday 26th January on and you’ll also find full details of the fundraising initiative there too.

Don’t miss out this Christmas

It’s November already. That means we can officially use the C word. Christmas is only a few weeks away.

Our prints make great presents. Choose a print of a special place, a favourite animal or even a dream car. Check out our collections to find ideal gifts.

Rumour has it that this Christmas may be tricky for traders and consumers alike. We will do our absolute best to get your orders to you quickly. But deliveries outside of our local area (SS postcodes) are out of our hands. We rely on the services of the Royal Mail and Hermes UK for deliveries. Plus, large prints going to international destinations are sent via DHL Express.

Our main advice is to get your orders in sooner rather than later. That is your best chance of ensuring that your prints arrive in time. We will continue posting out orders until Christmas Eve, but we cannot guarantee arrival times.

Christmas Is Coming

There is no escaping the fact that Christmas is approaching in a matter of weeks. This year, it’s not any old Christmas. It’s a Covid Christmas. None of us know exactly what that will look like and what will happen before we get there. Our recommendation is to get organised early.

Personalised Prints
If you are looking for an extra special present this year, why not surprise a loved one with a personalised print? We take commissions for unique artwork featuring people, places, pets, pubs or cars to your specifications. These prints do take time, so please chat to us in November in order to allow time for creation by December.

Delivery Dates
When it comes to ordering prints for Christmas, please allow plenty of time for delivery as services may be reduced. To make sure your pictures arrive before Christmas Day, you’ll need to get your orders in before the dates listed below. Please be aware that pictures over A3 in size and all framed pictures are printed and made to order, so please allow at least 3-5 days extra:

UK: Tuesday 15th Dec, 4pm

Europe: Tuesday 8th Dec, 4pm

USA & Canada: Friday 4th Dec, 4pm

Australia & NZ: Wednesday 2nd Dec, 4pm

Rest of the World: Friday 4th Dec, 4pm

These dates are only a guide based on information provided by Royal Mail. Occasionally, international orders can get held up in customs, which is unfortunately beyond our control.

The overall message is to start prepping for Christmas like a boss, and we will do our utmost to get your prints to you before Father Christmas is squeezing himself down your chimney.

Thank you.

We are open for business!


COVID -19 Update

Due to the current, extenuating circumstances caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, we must offer a reduced delivery service, which may mean orders taking a little longer to get to you than normal.

Whilst delivery services within the UK are currently operating with only minor interruptions at the moment, we are putting the safety of our team and the postal service workers first and restricting our demands on them. We intend to make postal drop offs only twice a week, rather than every day.

Overseas deliveries may be affected by delays depending on the particular country being shipped to and their current coronavirus restrictions.

For dispatching our A4 and A3 size prints we use Royal Mail regular postage service. Currently, Royal Mail Post Offices and postal service have NO plans to close or too reduce their regular service. We will keep you updated if this changes.

Our larger sizes prints are professionally printed to order and sent by courier. Our operator, Hermes is delivering in the UK as normal, but overseas deliveries may be affected by delays.

We will continue to send out your orders as quickly as possible, whilst ensuring safety is paramount. Please message us if you require further information.

Thank you for your patience and for supporting our small business at this difficult time.

Stay safe.
