Shop policies

Last updated on May 9, 2022
All the prints in this shop are made by hand in my garden shed, and each one is unique - I carve the design into lino, print it with my etching press, and where applicable, I paint in the colour with vivid acrylic ink.

Your print is therefore one of a kind, and may vary slightly from that shown. If you would like to see your specific print before purchase, I would be happy to e-mail you an image.

I take great care to ensure that my prints will last for a long time. I use only acid-free paper, printed with eco-friendly but completely permanent Caligo relief ink, and coloured with permanent acrylic inks. Each original print is signed along with its limited edition number.

I package and send all prints with great care to ensure that they arrive in immaculate condition.

All images are copyright Black Prints. Copyright is non-transferable with purchase.

Cancellations: not accepted

Please contact the seller if you have any problems with your order.


My preferred payment options are Paypal and credit card. You may also pay with bank deposit, but I will wait for payment to clear before shipping the item. If payment doesn’t come through I will contact you to let you know. If I don't get a reply after two weeks, the order will be cancelled. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to send me a message.


I try to send all orders within two working days of payment, and will send you a dispatch notice with the tracking number (if you are inside NL) when it's on its way. From that point, delivery times are variable, but as a rule of thumb, it should take a day within the Netherlands, and around a week to the rest of Europe. Outside Europe it's roughly 1 to 2 weeks, although there can occasionally be customs delays. Let me know if you have any special delivery requirements such as gift wrapping or the inclusion of a personal message.

Additional policies and FAQs

I am very happy to discuss special commissions, whether for a one-off print or for a bulk order. Unlike many artists who make precise copies of photographs, I love improvising from "imperfect" snapshots to produce the perfect result. Prices start at €190.00 for a custom print.
