Eric Thompson: In addition to our Gift Range, we have some small paperweights that hold a Limited Edition Print from our range. You can select almost any picture from our Gallery to be shown in the paperweight and these are priced at £10 per item.
Twitter and Facebook
Well, this is still a massive learning curve for me, but we are on Twitter and using it regularly. You can follow me @BondgateGallery for any special offers, exhibitions and new paintings.
You can also follow Eric @artefici but he doesn't know what he's doing !!
We are now on Facebook, so you can follow our news there too, search for Bondgate Gallery.
Gift Box Sets
Following the very successful introduction of a range of Gift Boxes in Bondgate Gallery, I have expanded the range available. Each Gift Box contains a set of four miniature limited edition Giclee prints by Eric Thompson (un-framed) and a Certificate of Authenticity.
The set of 4 prints to go in each box are now 'mix and match'. You can select any four prints from our range to go into the box. Keep in mind that any landscape pictures do have to be cropped to fit the square format.
These Gift Boxes will make an excellent present and are priced at a very low £20 each. As of today the 17th May, these are now available to buy here on-line, just follow this link.
We have some special offers coming up soon in the Gallery and our customers that are on Database will always hear about all of our Special Promotions and Exhibitions first. Email is by far the fastest and most convenient way to do this, and so if you wish to be added to our list or even just to confirm updated details, please send an email to email@example.com.
