Details of delivery costs and arrangements for delivery

Detailed delivery costs are laid out on our delivery page and at the checkout.

We use Royal Mail for delivery and everything is sent ‘signed for’. If you’re not in when Royal Mail try to deliver they leave a card and you need to collect it from the sorting office. We get everything signed for so it arrives safely.

We aim to despatch your products within 5 - 7 working days. Exceptions may occur over public holidays, but we would put up an explanatory note in advance on the site to let you what is happening and email you if an order was delayed for any reason.

How payments can be made

Payments are made via PayPal. Our website does not hold any credit card/debit card details, all financial transactions are handled separately by PayPal.

For more information on the PayPal User Agreement click here.

All prices are showing in pounds sterling.

How we accept orders and our contract with you

We will email you as soon as possible to confirm receipt of your order.

By placing an order, you are offering to buy a product. We will accept the order as long as we have the stock available. If a product is out of stock, we’ll let you know as soon as possible and refund your payment via PayPal.

When we send an email to say we’ve despatched the product, this forms acceptance of the contract to buy the product. (The same as when you pay for something in a shop). In formal language ‘a contract is concluded when the customer becomes bound to buy something and the business becomes bound to supply it’.

Cancellations (up to and including 7 working days after you have received the goods)

Of course we’re really keen for you to be happy with our products, but if you’re not you can cancel your order, at anytime from when you place it (and up to) seven working days after the date you received the goods. But, you do need to let us know by email
art@paulguthrie.co.uk and we’ll be in touch as soon as we can to sort it out. We will give a full refund (including standard delivery charges) and pay it as soon as possible but at least within 30 days of cancellation.

Goods must be returned in an ‘as sold’ condition. Please pack them carefully as some frames will contain glass and need to be wrapped very well.

All returned goods should be sent to Paul Guthrie, c/o Bentleys, Suite 6, 141/143 South Road, Haywards Heath, West Sussex RH16 4LY.     Just to repeat, do pack them carefully, particularly if they contain glass.

Faulty items (within 6 months of purchase)

We try to make sure everything we send out is perfect, but sometimes things slip through the net or develop faults. If so, do contact us immediately art@paulguthrie.co.uk and we’ll either replace it or refund you.

Damaged goods

If a product arrives damaged, get in touch via art@paulguthrie.co.uk and we’ll do our best to sort it out. We may ask you to take a photo of the damaged item and email or send it to us, just in case the product is so damaged it makes sense to bin it! Our returns policy in no way affects your statutory rights.


If you have a complaint, do get in touch via art@paulguthrie.co.uk and we’ll do our best to sort it out.

Visual representation 

It’s worth bearing in mind different computer screens affect how colours are seen, the paintings may look slightly different in real life (hopefully even better!)
