We currently work with "Zwart op wit" , because we are happy with their high quality and good value service. The printing costs depend on the paperchoice and format. A few price examples:

How long does it take for my birth announcements to be printed?
Because we don't have our own printing-infrastructure we depend on the timing of "Zwart op wit". If you've chosen "offset printing" it can take 3 to 5 days after sending the file to the printers. With 'digital printing" the cards can be picked up 1 to 2 days after sending the file to the printers.
If you want to use a printingservice of your choice other than "Zwart op wit", we will finish the print-ready file on the day that your little one is born and send it to you immediately.

How much does an original painting cost?
The price depends on how much time it takes to paint the illustration: the size, the amount of detail and whether or not it is based on an existing illustration are the most important factors. The original paintings from our gallery are not for sale, but we do offer the opportunity to order a copy with small customizations. If you can't find what you're looking for in our gallery, don't hesitate to contact us to work out a concept for a unique new painting for you.
Delivery: because original paintings are unique and irreplaceable, we don't send original work by post. We can deliver the painting to you home at a cost of 0;35 euro/km. You can also pick up the painting at our home or at one of the conventions we attend at no extra cost.
