Because of a recent change in policies with my printer, I spent much of this weekend looking into alternate ways that I could make my prints available to you. I eventually stumbed on Fotomoto, an online service that allows readers to actually purchase prints directly from my site, rather than going to an offline store. I'm intrigued by this because:
1. they handle the ordering and shipping directly, which means that you won't have to wait for me to order the prints;
2. it greatly reduces the time it takes for me to maintain the online store (and therefore allows me to make more images available for sale); and
3. they make postcards and flat cards available for prints as well (in case you're not in the market for a larger print).
The beauty of this is that for you, it means that you still get high quality prints made from my high resolution files, but the delivery time should be far shorter, and you get more variety, with no increase in print cost (the 8x10s which were available in the previous online shop are still $35 -- except they're now 8x12s -- and even larger sizes are now available).
How it works: below every image that I have available for purchase, near the bottom right hand corner, you'll see two links, "available prints" and "available cards" -- just like the two links you see above. Simply click on the appropriate link to purchase. Paypal, as well as major credit cards, are accepted; also, international shipping is available.
I hope this works out as well for you as I think it will for me. Thanks for your patience, everyone. And as always, thank you so much for supporting my little site.
