Delivery Information

Royal Mail Strikes

Given the upcoming Royal Mail strikes we want to inform our customers that there will be delays to all RM48, RM24, and RM24T orders. The strikes are planned for the following dates:

  • Thursday 24th November
  • Friday 25th November
  • Wednesday 30 November
  • Thursday 1 December

To avoid delays please upgrade to our courier service. This service will not be affected by the Royal Mail strikes.


No matter where you are in the world, we’ll make sure your order arrives on time. Storybooks have the power to transport your child to fantastical places, and a gift like this takes time when it’s specially made for your child. This means the time to make, personalise and bind the book by hand is factored into the delivery time.

Once you’ve chosen and personalised your gift, the actual delivery times and price will be shown during checkout.

Production Lead Times

Depending on the product you select, the lead times will vary. Simply check at basket for product you wish to order for the exact lead times.

As well as delivery, please keep in mind the time it takes to make and produce the book. All our books are made to order to ensure every part of your gift is outstanding quality.

  • Orders received before 10am(UK Time), ordered on the day, are considered a full day of production. Orders received after 10am(UK Time) will then begin production the following day and be considered the first working day of production.
  • Some items require more time, from hand-bound covers to foil embossed covers. Please keep this in mind when ordering multiple items as some items may be despatched and delivered separately. Unlike other companies, there are no additional charges involved in this.
  • We are unable to deliver to PO boxes.
  • For Non-UK Mainland addresses, Northern Ireland, the Highlands, and the majority of UK islands, please be advised that delivery may take an additional 1 – 2 days. If an APC courier is selected, this will be switched to Royal Mail Special Delivery instead of APC.
