All our frames are made to order, this handmade process means your order will take several days for us to prepare. Our current production time is around 3 to 5 working days but larger specimens can take a few days longer due to the time it takes the specimen to dry. If you are ordering for presents, birthdays, anniversaries and weddings, please order well in advance.

All of our frames are carefully wrapped and boxed before shipping out once they are ready. Items that we advise are in stock still need to be prepared and made for you.

If you are in a rush, frames can be shipped on a quicker delivery service once they are ready. We can ship on an overnight service for example but you will need to email us, so we can advise when your order will be ready.

You will receive an email once your order is dispatched containing a tracking number.
