The majority of images have originally been scanned at high resolution. The 'COPYRIGHT' overlay in the centre of the image will be removed from the photograph, but a small discreet overlay may be placed in one of the bottom corners. Please note the image is still in copyright and should not be copied or resold by any means without permission from the author.
If a quantity of prints are required of a single chosen image or images, a quotation will be gladly given on knowing your requirements - the price will be much less than a single print run due to same setting-up time covering the many images, but for one off SINGLE PRINT ORDERS the prices are as follows:-
All printed and digital images are provided on the understanding that they are for private use only and not to be used commercially without prior permission to do so.
Digital images are only sold in special circumstances - please give details.
LASER & LARGE ARCHIVAL PRINTS
For images of A4 size and smaller, prints are now undertaken using a high quality laser machine.
The facility is also available 'in house' to print prints using a top of the range large format Canon printer using archival pigment inks that have been assured by UK laboratory testing to last 85+ years, however due to high overheads in operating this machine, only orders for large images (Approximately A3 or above) or volume orders for A5 size or above can now be undertaken.
Unless requested otherwise, all images are usually printed with a slight sepia tone as this gives a warmer image than ordinary black/white. Hand colour tinting can also be undertaken for an extra fee.
Please be aware that the images are fine art prints and are not photocopies, machine or screen prints. One off copies of single images may seem expensive, but are time consuming to print manually, however for volume orders, a quotation will gladly be given.
A single A4 (or smaller if required) coloured laser copy can be had for only £5 ( for volume orders a quote will be given on knowing details of order

The sizes shown above are the finished dimensions of the paper and are shown for example only - any size required can be catered for. If one is not sure of the exact dimensions required,it is recommended that as a guide the largest height or width wanted is chosen, the other dimension will be sized automatically. If you are not sure of anything, please do not hesitate to ask.
THE ABOVE SIZES ARE THE PAPER SIZES. Please note that a printed image can go up to the edge of the paper if desired, but if the picture is going to be framed it is best if at least a 3cm gap is left around the image to allow for a mount if the the print is taken to a picture framer.
ALSO THE ORIGINAL PHOTO MAY NOT HAVE THE SAME DIMENSIONS AS THE PAPER (h x w) -- this will have a bearing on the ultimate print size.
Prints up to and including the A4 size (11.7" x 8.3") will be packed flat, larger prints will be rolled and supplied in a postal tube unless collected/delivered in Guernsey.
Prices quoted include postage to Europe, the UK and Channel Islands.
For Postage costs for any other region, please contact me for a quotation.
If the image is to be delivered in Guernsey, it may be possible to deliver the larger prints personally.
I am also prepared to scan and digitally repair and print any faded or torn personal photographs or albums you may have, no matter what condition, so they can be archivally preserved for future generations of your family. I will be happy to give a quotation for you on knowing further details.
Most photographic collections whether in a museum or held privately should be stored in an environment of controlled humidity and light for archival longevity, otherwise they will fade and be lost for future generations to see. Due to this fact, old photographs should not be permanently on view - The internet is a perfect medium to remedy this issue.
This site is a large ongoing project with new material being added from contributors and also from the author's own collection. I encourage anyone who has any information on any of the pictures shown to email me, I will be grateful for your comments.
I look forward to hearing from you.
