for these heavier articles outside the UK. If you order framed prints online for
delivery outside the UK, we shall send you a PayPal email invoice for payment of
additional carriage before the goods are despatched. (Wecan handle these rates,
however! So if you want framed prints outside the UK, please contact us directly.
