If your file is small, you can send it to us at our artwork email address: email@example.com. Larger files might be rejected by the email system before it reaches us so we recommend that you upload it using one of the facilities listed below.
You can send files up to a total of 2GB using WeTransfer. Send your files to our artwork email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sign up to Dropbox and install their software to give you 2GB of online storage that can be accessed from any web browser and selectively shared with family, friends and us. You can even access your files on an iPhone or Android mobile. To share files with us, put them inside a folder named something like “Timber Construction: Your Name” inside the Dropbox folder on your computer. Then right click (or control click on a Mac) and on the Dropbox menu choose “Share this folder”. Put email@example.com in the recipient box and click Share Folder. We’ll also need instructions: include a file in the folder; or write it in the message box when you share it; or send us a separate email.
