International orders that we send overseas do not incur GST. However as the cost
of shipping internationally depends on a number of factors for example size,
weight and destination we will apply the GST equivalent towards the shipping
cost. In plain words the price you see on the Web site is what you pay and
includes shipping to you - anywhere in the world.
Please note that you are still responsible for any Taxes or Customs charges that
may be applied by the destination country.
Typically a 30 inch framed product can cost us almost $200 to Ship to the USA or
England so the GST equivalent offsets less than half of this amount; we think
this is a good deal for our international customers.

country are payable by you.
International freight charges are included in your order, but import duties and
other taxes, which may be levied in the country of destination, cannot be

3. Print Only
Great care should be taken when handling the print to avoid fingerprints,
scratching and buckling. Handle the print only by the edges. We strongly advise
that you carefully follow the instructions on the package for print only that
recommends that you open the print package in the presence of an experience
framer of your choice. It may be preferable to avoid opening your print until
you have taken it your chosen framer and allow them to open it at the same time
you choose your mats and frame.
This serves two purposes. Photographic prints as are all works of art, delicate
and do not handle well. Your framer will have many years experience in handling
By opening the print with your framer, in his workshop, you both see that the
print is free of any marks or defects at the time you leave it with the framer.
Special Print Guarantee
Sometimes even the most experienced framers can have a hiccup. In the event
something does go wrong that causes damage to the print whilst in the care of
your framer you should negotiate with him or her regarding compensation. However
we will reprint the product at a nominal charge and not the full retail price.
We do require evidence that the original print is destroyed. With Limited
editions we require a section of the image with the title and print number to be
returned to the John Temple Gallery before we will re-issue a Limited Edition

You should be aware that your screen may not accurately display colours; it
will vary from computer to computer. It is unlikely for example that you could
hold up one of our prints next to your screen and see them match. The images
that we load to the web are of a much lower quality than we use to print with
for one thing.
