Flower press :

This air dry press (9" x 9" / 23cms x 23cms) needs to be put in a warm/hot environment to dry and press the plant material in 1-3 days. The flowers are placed between two layers of cotton, which are separated by foam layers. The layers are held between plastic grids, held together with Velcro® straps. All parts of the press are hand washable.

Cards & Pictures

The cards & pictures shown on the Gallery pages are examples of those you may order.

Original cards

Original cards, using real pressed flowers or plant material, are about 110x200mm in size. Prices start at £5, depending on the complexity of the design.
All cards are sealed with a film with a UV filter, which protects the plant material used, and come complete with envelopes.

Printed cards

Many of the designs in the Card Gallerys are available as printed cards, folded size 10.5x15cm. Cards come complete with envelopes, price £1.50.

Pictures

All pictures using pressed plant material are framed to The Pressed Flower Guild standard, which ensures minimal contact with air and therefore minimal discolouration.
As every piece of plant material is unique, your card or picture will not be exactly the same as the one shown.
I like to make my work especially for you, so please contact me with your specific requirements and I will do my best to produce what you would like.
Framed prints are available in various sizes.

Wedding, funeral & special occasion flowers:

Why not have your special memories preserved? A photograph, order of service, invitation or other memorabilia may be included with your flowers. The flowers need to be pressed as soon after the occasion as possible, in order to preserve their colour. Please keep them cool and dry. They should not be sprayed or frozen or kept in the fridge.
Different flowers keep their colour in different ways when pressed and may darken 0r lighten, depending on the flower or plant material.
I can use similar flowers, if yours are not still available.
For examples of wedding items, please click here.
I do not usually artificially colour my flowers, as I believe that pressed plant material should be allowed to age naturally. The modern methods of pressing which I use allow maximum colour retention.
