HOW TO ORDER A PORTRAIT

  • Email your photograph and the delivery address to zoereidportraits@gmail.com.  Note: please send a high quality photograph.
    Email short cut: please click on the envelope icon on the bottom right hand side of this web page.
  • You will then receive a PayPal deposit request of 25% (see below for portrait costs). As soon as the deposit is paid, painting of the portrait will begin.
  • When the portrait is finished, you will be emailed a copy to view and a PayPal invoice of the balance.
  • As soon as the balance is paid, the original artwork will be posted immediately to the delivery address.

THE PORTRAITS

  • Each individual portrait costs NZ$350 - to convert to another currency, please go to xe.com - this price includes a 25% deposit, GST (for NZ customers only) and postage worldwide. 
  • Portraits are A4 size (21cm x 29.7cm or 8.27 inches × 11.69 inches).  Additional people be added to a portrait at 25% extra per person.  If you would prefer a different size, please email me to discuss options.
  • The completion date of the portrait is approximately two weeks (plus 6-10 working days postage).  If needed urgently for a special occasion, portrait requests can be prioritised.

POSTAGE + PACKAGING

  • The portraits are protected by an A4 plastic sleeve and envelope then packaged inside a C4 size board-backed 'Do Not Bend' Jiffy packet. 
  • Depending on the final destination, the portrait will take between 6-10 working days to arrive.  If the portrait delivery is urgent, then a courier service may be requested at extra cost. 
  • A framing service is not offered, as choice of frame is a matter of personal taste and there is a high risk of a frames breaking in the post.

TIPS FOR A GOOD PHOTOGRAPH FOR A PAINTED PORTRAIT

  • Relaxed, informal shots, preferably taken in natural light, make for a better portrait than posed studio or flash photographs.  Soft expressions are preferable for children.  Avoid toddler and baby photos (under 3 years old) as features and personality are less developed.  When it comes to pet portraits, profiles of animals tend to work particularly well.
