Please note that digital files will NOT be supplied except with a Rights-Managed Licence for use other than individual Fine Art prints. Unfortunately there can be no exceptions to this in order to preserve the integrity of the strictly Limited Edition prints as detailed above. If you are interested in using one of Viveca's images for advertising or design purposes, please select "Buy Limited Edition Print" above the photograph in question, then check the "Downloads" tab to obtain a Rights Managed License.
Some Things to Bear in Mind
It is very important to note that prints should never be displayed in full sunlight.
Sizes are as a guide only - all prints are custom made to the exact image size which does vary slightly from photograph to photograph. In order to preserve the maximum image area and composition photographs are never cropped, which may create asymmetrical borders when printed.
Panoramic prints sizes are approximate as not all panoramas are the exact aspect ratio of the print sizes quoted.
It is recommended that larger images (generally over 11.8" x 15.8" / 30 x 40cm) are mounted to prevent sagging in frame over time. This will increase the price quoted per print, depending on the type and thickness of mount used, please contact to discuss.
Postage will be charged at current Royal Mail rates for Special Delivery, or Parcelforce Worldwide, dependent on the size/weight of the prints/package.
Framed prints are no longer offered due to delivery logistics and cost, so please contact your local picture framer for assistance. It is strongly recommended that only acid-free mounts/matts are used when framing.
Photographic prints are sold for display purposes only. Scanning or copying Viveca's prints in any way is considered infringement of the photographer's copyright and a violation of international copyright law.
If you have further queries or concerns about any aspect of the above, please do not hesitate to contact Viveca for further information.
