These photos are amazing! The quality is terrific and the aesthetic is exactly what I was looking for. They were shipped quickly in great packaging, and are even more beautiful in person than online! I've gotten so many compliments already. In addition, the artist was great to work with in answering my questions and ensuring I was getting the size I needed. Great transaction!

Printed at 11x14", this rust quartet by Diana is shipping tomorrow to its new home in Kentucky where it will provide some industrial abstract style. It's always exciting to print this series and appreciate the amazing rust patterns and colors up close.
This classic black and white Brooklyn Bridge photograph by Diana prints beautifully at any size and is a great way to add some NYC style to your walls. Here is a 5x7" print with white border and an 11x14" print with no white border.
I found this old Airstream trailer at Bombay Beach by the Salton Sea in California. It was slowly being dissolved by punishing salt and heat in a very post-apocalyptic scene. A recent addition to our shop, this image shows a striking 20x30" print. (TB)

About

About PappasBland

Diana Pappas and Tom Bland are photographers currently based in north east New Jersey, USA. Diana is originally from New Jersey, while Tom comes from Northumberland in the north east of England. They met on Flickr.com, the leading online photography community before Instagram came along – Tom discovered Diana’s work one day and added her as a Flickr contact, and Diana soon did the same. What followed was a year of commenting on each other’s photography, which led to emails that gradually increased in length and frequency, and finally one year after first connecting on Flickr they met in person at Terminal B of Newark Airport. They married three years later.

As photographers, Diana and Tom often collaborate on editorial stories and assist each other on shoots. Although their time is largely divided between New Jersey and the north of England, they travel as frequently as possible to further their editorial work – either working on assignment or to develop self-initiated stories and projects. Their primary interests lie in food culture and farming, nature, the environment, travel, and associated portraiture.

Here on Etsy they sell signed open-edition fine art prints of their most popular photographs, in sizes ranging from 5x7" up to as large as 30x40".

Payment
Our shop accepts credit, debit or Etsy gift cards, with all payments processed by Etsy Checkout or Paypal.

If there is a particular deadline you'd like to receive your order by you may need to upgrade your shipping. Please leave a note when you place your order and read our deliveries policy below for information about shipping services.
Shipping
We ship to any destination.
US shipping is free.

For international shipping*, unfortunately here on Etsy we have to charge a flat rate regardless of the print size you choose. This is only a provisional fee though, and upon shipping your order we'll refund any overcharges.

All standard shipping is with first class US Mail and includes tracking. Contact us to arrange shipping using a priority service. We can quickly send you a quote and the additional payment will be easy to process.

Unless posted otherwise, orders should be processed and shipped within 7 business days in most cases, but please allow a maximum of 28 days for the delivery of your order. After this, if you think the delivery of your order is overdue, please let us know and the shipping delay will be investigated.

Your order will be carefully prepared and protected in rigid cardboard packaging made from recycled materials.

* INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMS:
Any customs fees, import taxes, tariffs, or duties that may be incurred at the time of delivery are at the discretion of your country's tax regulations. As a buyer you are responsible for those charges. For any additional information refer to your local customs agency. Returns will not be accepted due to such fees.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you wish to cancel your order, you can do so for any reason within 24 hours of placing the order. Beyond the 24 hour period we will have already incurred expenses in producing your artwork, so refunds are not available after that point.

Our prints are very well protected and the packaging we use is designed to safeguard them from damage during transit. If your order is damaged on arrival though, please get in touch to discuss the problem and we'll figure out a solution.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please understand that all screens are different, therefore the brightness and colors of our photographs can vary dramatically from one device to another. The print you receive may look slightly different from what you see here on Etsy, but all prints are closely examined and we won't send out a print if we're not happy with it ourselves.

HANDLING
Handle your print very carefully using two hands. When moving the print try to keep it flat, supporting it from beneath rather than holding the edges. However, do try to avoid repeated handling of your artwork.

MOUNTING, FRAMING & DISPLAY
To preserve your print's life expectancy it should be mounted and framed using archival (acid-free) materials. A recommended method is to use photo corners to attach the print to archival board, and then affixing a 'mat' or 'window mount' to that board. Dry-mounting the print is also an option provided the process is reversible. The artwork should not touch any glass or acrylic.

Your photography print should be displayed on walls that avoid direct sunlight, or extremes in temperature and/or humidity. If your artwork is avoiding the sun's ultraviolet rays, UV blocking glass or acrylic is not essential.

CONTACT
If you have any questions that are not covered here don't hesitate to contact us.

Frequently asked questions

SHOULD I ORDER MY PRINT WITH A WHITE BORDER?

Yes, that’s our recommendation as the photographs will be uncropped and looking their best. If you intend to custom frame your print (either through our shop at www.etsy.com/listing/493786954 or elsewhere) the white border makes this process much easier. We understand that white borders aren’t for everybody though, so if perhaps you have an 8x10” frame and you want your 8x10” print to fill the entire frame, the ‘No white border’ option is for you.

IF I CHOOSE A WHITE BORDER HOW BIG IS THE PAPER?

The dimensions listed always refer to the size of the paper. The paper size isn’t affected whether you choose a white border or not – it’s the size of the photographic image that changes. Choosing a white border inevitably means that the full photographic image will be slightly smaller than the paper size you selected – in order to accommodate the border. For example, an 8x10” print with a white border usually results in the photographic image being 6x9”. If you choose ‘No white border’ the image will be 'full bleed', meaning that an 8x10” print will result in an 8x10” image (this often means the image will need to be cropped to fill your chosen paper size).

HOW SHOULD I LOOK AFTER MY PRINT?

Handle your print very carefully using two hands. When moving the print try to keep it flat, supporting it from beneath rather than holding the edges. However, do try to avoid repeated handling of your artwork.

To preserve your print's life expectancy it should be mounted and framed using archival (acid-free) materials.

Your photography print should be displayed on walls that avoid direct sunlight, or extremes in temperature and/or humidity.

DO YOU OFFER CUSTOM FRAMING?

Yes we do, though currently only if you live in one of the 48 contiguous states of the United States. To add custom framing to your order you first need to add the photography print itself to your cart. Then add the corresponding frame size to your cart too at www.etsy.com/listing/493786954 and you're ready to checkout. We print and then ship your photograph to Framebridge for custom framing. The finished piece comes ready-to-hang and includes free shipping directly to you

I ALREADY HAVE A FRAME, WHAT PAPER SIZE SHOULD I ORDER?

That depends on the size of your frame. If you have an 11x14” frame then any of our prints at that size or smaller could work for you. An 11x14” print will fit perfectly into an 11x14” frame with or without a white border, but for smaller sizes you would need to source a custom mat. If your frame is a different size to the prints we offer, we’re happy to discuss the options – just send us a quick message.
