Great Book!!!

Lisette C. Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 30 Nov 2020

This gift is absolutely beautiful!!!

Danielle Perdue Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 29 Oct 2020

I agree with others that the binding makes you feel like it is easy to fall apart. I also agree with others about the pages being a bit frail. However, it's BEAUTIFUL! The binding is what it is, but the pages are from the newspaper so it gives it a better feel than an actual book. The book is much larger than I expected and although it is a bit cumbersome, it makes the content all the more exciting. It needs to be large so you can read the print. The book includes Kobe's early days, his retirement, the crash, and his legacy from the words of his close friends. It's beautiful. I'm actually disappointed that I have to give it away because I bought it as a Christmas gift for a friend. It will take them a long time to read through all of it and it is a pleasant walk down memory lane. I like this book option because I was going to get them a plaque but then they would be forced to look a Kobe everyday which may be rough. This is a nice gift for them to have when they have their friends over and want to reminisce about Kobe. Rest in Power, Mamba.

Overall a great product. As some have mentioned pages are a little thinner than would like. However, if you are a Kobe fan, a great idea. Loved the embossing on the outside. Made for a great graduation present. Thank you

Dinosaur book review

Really pleased with the personalised dinosaur book I had for my 1yr old neighbour! It’s so colourful and having his name everywhere possible is absolutely brilliant. I’m sure he will love it for many years to come.

Excellent book including further items I was not expecting, but were brilliant and very exciting to read, my friend who I bought the book for was in tears reading it. Well worth it and would recommend it

Annette O Connor Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 14 Apr 2021

I bought 2 books for my grandchildren…

I bought 2 books for my grandchildren which I am delighted with. I love the personalisation of them. I knew they were going to be personalised but not to the extent that they were with their names on every page. The quality of the books is great as well. Each page is a lovely quality and hopefully childproof!! I received them very quickly in the post as well. I had both of them within 10 days and that included Easter and a weekend. Many thanks

Nice product but too late

The product is nice but the book arrived several days after the last delivery date it was supposed to (and without an apology or warning), so I missed occasion, despite having ordered it in plenty of time.

A special gift for the sports fan in your life

Maureen Pringle Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 12 Apr 2021

Great book for a football fanatic!!

I love this book I've bought for my husband's 60th later this year who is Newcastle United mad!!!! My only criticism would be that when I placed my order and wrote what I wanted printed I tried to place it so it would be central, but, when it came one of the lines wasn't, thankfully it still looks ok but as a company I thought you would of automatically centralised the printing especially for the price! I bought the most expensive one saying as it's for a special birthday. Good quick service and well packaged though.
