Over the past few weeks, I have been busy acquiring samples of some the items I am selling on the website (UK goods) so that I can quality check the products and post photographs of some of them. I am pleased to now be able to add photographs of placemats, coasters and canvas prints. The quality of all of the goods I have tested so far has been superb and the images have been reproduced faithfully in terms of colour and crop.
I am particularly pleased with the coasters and placemats, as the high sheen, heat resistant finish shows off the images at their best. At present, the website is only set up to enable customers to buy coasters as a set of four, all of the same image and placemats as a set of two of the same image. The good news is that I am currently building up my stock and soon I will be able to offer placemats and coasters in sets of two or four, either with matching images or as sets of images of similar subject matters. At present, I am working on sets of wading birds, seabirds, images of Derbyshire and flowers, with more to follow in due course. Please get in touch if you would like to suggest a subject for a set or commission a set (any of the images can be combined into a set).

The quality of the canvas prints is also top notch. I chose to purchase images with a photo wrap, mounted on a 3.8cm thick frame. The canvases are tightly stretched and look very professional and they come with mirror plates for hanging. One of my colleagues liked the Ladybower image so much that she bought it on the spot. I just managed to take a quick snap of it before it was whisked away to adorn a wall in Sheffield.

I have also added a few new card and postcard templates to the website. At present, they are only available as multi-packs but I will be rectifying this and adding an option to buy individual cards soon. I am also working on a new template for the back of the cards that will allow me to include details of where the images were taken or what species is being depicted. Watch this space for an update when the new items are available.
As always, if you have any questions, please get in touch.
