This gift is absolutely beautiful!!!

Danielle PerdueTrustpilot product review 5 star rating29 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

Excellent service and product. Bought as a 50th Birthday Gift for a work colleague. Can't wait to present it to him. Also bought the boxing one for my husband at Christmas and he loved it.

Bella Trustpilot product review 2 star rating 3 Aug 2021

Not impressed with customer service

I raised an issue with the company but they have not responded. Basically I asked for an invoice for the TWO books I ordered (at a cost of over £60). I wanted to check costs as on the website the nice gift box is advertised as being free but when I purchased my books I was charged £5 per gift box. Also postage advertised at just over £3 but I'm sure I was charged more than this (per book)! I look forward to perhaps getting a response/explanation now.

    Thank you for your review.

    We can see that an email was sent on Friday which we do apologise for the delay in responding, our responses usually take longer from the weekend due to high volumes. As requested, copies of your email confirmations have been forwarded in separate emails, if you have any queries please get back to us?

    Our web sessions are usually recorded therefore we have viewed your session and can confirm that on both orders you were advised of the additional cost of £5.00 for the gift box and standard postage costs which is clearly advertised on the website. What you are referring to with regards to a free gift box and reduced postage is our trade website however you have ordered via our retail site, these are two completely different websites.

    Sorry for any confusion caused, if you need any further assistance please contact us.

    Kind regards
    In the Book.
