Mel Waite Photographic Artist Porirua New Zealand

What kind of paper is your work printed on?

I use Ilford smooth cotton rag paper to print my images on. It is an archival quality photographic paper and has been specifically crafted to meet the needs of fine art printing and durability - not to mention the finish is outstanding and makes my work sing.

Can you order pieces in custom sizes?

All existing pieces in my collection are limited edition, each usually available in two sizes, so I cannot offer custom sized option. However, if you are after something for a specific space in your home, I would be happy to create a commissioned piece for you - feel free to contact me to talk further about the options.

Are all your images framed?

I have chosen specific frame style and colour options, along with a high quality framers glass  that I know will work beautifully with my images. However, if you have something different in mind, please contact me and I can see what I can do.

Can you send frames overseas?

Yes, overseas delivery is available - simply follow the instructions when you are going through my checkout and shipping will automatically be calculated. 

How long will it take for my artwork to arrive?

Any orders though my shop (unless otherwise stated) are printed on demand. Production can take 2 - 3 weeks and sometimes longer during busy seasons such as Christmas. Once your artwork is shipped you will be sent a tracking number so that you can keep track of your precious cargo.

What is a limited edition?

Limited edition simply means that the number of times the print is reproduced is ‘limited’. This makes it more special.
