Ordering prints

Many of the photographs on the Leodis website are available to order. The majority of photographs are our copyright and others we have been allowed to sell in this way, are available to order as photographic copies of the originals. Please note, many of the photographs are non-standard sizes. These are printed to the exact proportions of the original so as not to lose any of the image. This may result in the print you receive being slightly smaller than the size of paper shown. It should also be noted that in some cases the original photographs are either of poor quality or very small in size so any copies made will reflect this.


Standard charges :  10 x 8 = £8.00 12 x 9 = £11.00

 16 x 12 = £13.00

To place an order find the photograph you wish to purchase.  At the bottom of the page select the number of copies you require, decide on the size and whether you prefer matt (lustre) or gloss and select the appropriate code.  Sepia toning can also be added at an additional charge.


Our normal delivery time is 1-2 weeks. 


Please note: All our photographs are supplied by an outside company and are dispatched either in sturdy cardboard tubes, which are then sealed with tape, or in card backed envelopes similarly sealed. Every effort is made on our part to ensure that your order is securely packaged, and we regret that we cannot accept responsibility for damage incurred in transit.


Payment can now be taken for your order on the site. Select the 'Make payment' option and you will be asked for your credit card details.  If you are ordering from outside the UK please select 'Pay later' and you will be contacted regarding payment. Please ensure you leave a contact telephone number or e-mail address for this service to enable us to provide a quick reponse.


Partners photographs

Copies can now be purchased on photographs from our partners' collections.  These are the ones with copyright held by Leeds Museums Service, West Yorkshire Archive Service, Leeds Civic Trust and the Thoresby Society.  These copies are produced on a high quality photographic printer from our electronic files.  These prints carry an additional fee to those shown above of £5.00 plus VAT, which is paid to the copyright holder.  For example a 10x8 print of a photograph held by one of the partners listed will cost £14.00 inc VAT.


Photographs not for sale

Some images are not for sale. This is where the copyright holder has allowed us to make available the photograph on the Leodis website but will not allow copies of the photographs to be sold. Where this occurs there will not be an ordering box and a note explaining this image can not be purchased will be found beneath the photograph.


Use of images commercially or in publishing

All copies of images purchased through the Leodis site are sold on the understanding that the copies are for personal use by an individual.  If you wish to publish any of the images or use them commercially you must first obtain permission from us, giving details of how the image/s are to be used. An additional fee is chargeable in most cases.  Some images are not available at all for use in this way.
