Xmas Shipping - Key Dates 2023
Update 7 December: For deliveries to New Zealand addresses please order by Monday 18th December if you would like to ensure delivery by Xmas Day. NZ Post deadlines for guaranteed delivery by Xmas outside of NZ has passed, although there is still a small chance gifts will arrive by 25th December to Australia & the Pacific.
What does shipping cost?
We deliver loose (unframed) prints, posters and canvas art prints anywhere in NZ for just $NZ 6 per order (for any number of items) and around the world by Airmail for just $NZ 20 (for any number of prints). These shipping amounts are added at the checkout after you tell us where you would like the prints delivered. Framed prints are delivered nationwide for $20 per order. Please note that due to post-Covid shipping disruption we have paused shipping framed prints (unframed prints are no problem) outside of NZ until freight rates get back to normal.
How long does delivery take?
After you place your order your prints will normally be hand delivered to your door in 3-5 working days within New Zealand. In pre-Covid times Airmail got your prints delivered in a couple of weeks anywhere in the world - but deliveries are taking longer than this to many destinations right now, prints are all getting there eventually though so please be prepared to be patient :) Don't forget to allow a few extra days before dispatch for framed prints or stretched canvases as we need time for our elves to complete the job. Please do call us on 0800 800 278 if you have any delivery questions - or if you need our urgent next day delivery or a 2 day courier service. We are here to help.
How will my order be packaged?
We guarantee your prints will arrive in perfect condition. All unframed prints are wrapped in acid-free tissue and encased in our specialty custom made coated cardboard mailing tubes manufactured by global protective packaging specialists Sonoco right here in Christchurch. The prints will slide easily out of the tube and the paper will not have a single crease, bend or dent. Framed prints and stretched canvases are bubble-wrapped and packed in super robust corrugated cardboard packaging that we know will last the journey. If you are really curious to know more about how your order will be packed we've recently written about this in a post on print packaging
Next Day Delivery
Need urgent delivery? We can usually ship on CourierPost/NZ Post's overnight service (including Saturday) within New Zealand, this costs between $25-$40 depending on the destination - great if you have left buying that gift to the last minute! Please call us on 0800 800 278 to arrange overnight delivery - and please call us if you would like to know more about any of our shipping options too.
Custom duties & taxes
If you are importing goods such as art prints from New Zealand you may possibly attract taxes, duties etc at the border. It's annoying when this happens - but we are not responsible for taxes that you incur sorry!
