Our cards are size A6, 105 x 148 mm except the Kuvapina-postcards which are A5. All of our cards are printed with off-set technique, including UV varnishing to prevent the sun harming them in the time being.
We don't make multi-image cards, because we believe that if photo is good, one is just enough. And to give them all the power they deserve, they shall be left alone without any text or other additional graphics. All written information is on the backside of a card.

Direct Deposit PrePay
We promote common tradition in Nordic countries: prepayment. It means that you pay your order in advance directly to us, using your personal eBank. Of course it means that you trust us, which we hope you do - at least in the time being. We recommend Direct Deposit Prepay to everyone living in 32 member states using SEPA. Which consists of members of European Economic Area (EEA) and EU, with addition some other non-EU countries (Liechtenstein, Iceland, Norway, Monaco and Switzerland).
According to European Commission, banks are not allowed to make any deductions of the amount transferred using SEPA. This is why we recommend this method: there aren't transaction costs. However, we cannot quarentee this because it's all up to the bank you happen to use. If they charge you for SEPA payments (supposedly against the rules) you must deal the issue with them.
All you have to do is to use your personal eBank and pay your order using information we give you via e-mail. You have two weeks (14 days) to pay your order. Your order will be delivered when we have received payment. If we do not get payment in 14 days, we'll remove order from our system.
We accept payments from any other countries too, not only from SEPA or EU countries. For the most part it depends on your bank. If you know you can pay international transfers with your eBank, go for it! If you aren't that sure about that, ask about it from your bank or use other payment methods we support.
Unfortunately PayPal won't work directly via our site. However, you can still pay with PayPal by following instructions below.
PayPal works by choosing Direct Deposit PrePay on checkout. As explained above, it means that you have to pay your order in advance and you'll get receipt via e-mail once you have placed an order.

Of course you can also pay the amount with your personal eBank. However, good thing about PayPal is that we'll get your payment quite quickly. Then we'll mail your order immediately. It's THAT easy!

I got some awesome photos. Would you like to make postcards of them?
We have dozens of photos wating for their turn to get printed. It's going to take a looooong time before we run out of Kalervo's photos. Untill then, we don't take photos from other photographers to our collection.
