  • Does the image on your site accurately represent what I will be sent?

    We strive for a high degree of image accuracy and generally the image on your site accurately represents what you will be sent. However, in some cases, the visual representation may show slight variations due to

    • differences in computer screen calibration and
    • minor variations between printing runs.

  • Do you supply what is needed to hang my framed print?

    Yes. Everything you need to properly hang your frame is included with your purchase.

  • Do you have any retail locations?

    No. We do not operate any retail locations. All of our services are provided through our web site and our central order processing facility. We can be reached via email at sales@irishliterarygifts.ie with any questions.

  • Do you offer a printed catalogue?

    No. We do not offer a printed catalogue. Due to the frequency with which we add new items we are not able to maintain a current catalogue.
