Delays & Covid 19

We are working hard to ensure the current supply chain challenges will not impact our services. However, during busy periods we have known Royal Mail delivery to take up to 10 days. As we navigate the unknown, we do ask for patience and will keep customers aware of any unforeseen delays.


Unfortunately, due to the nature of our personalised children's books, we are unable to accept returns or order cancellations once the printing process has begun.

Please check the information carefully before you submit your order for spelling and images.

We provide a full book preview during the order process with a final check for your character and customised text before adding the book to checkout. We cannot be held responsible for customer mistakes.
