Haven't opened the book fully as it is for a Christmas present but from what I have seen it looks very good quality. Smaller than expected.
This customized and personalized book far exceeded my expectations. It’s a wonderful story that incorporates a little person. Brilliant!

The final result was wonderful
The final result was wonderful. The book was given as a gift for fathers day. It came out beautiful and we are pleased. It was only prior to receiving the book that there was a hick-up. My order could not be tracked on your site at all and we had no way to know when it was arriving. Thankfully when it did arrive we got it with no issues. Overall the finished product is well worth the price and its a great keepsake to have.
