I was very happy with the book I purchased & how quickly it was made & posted to me. I thought the quality of the book was great and my son on receiving it was extremely happy. The only remarks I would perhaps make or suggest are firstly I feel the price is a bit steep for what you actually receive & I think I feel that way as there should be a bit more choice for the customer i.e the actual colour of the book & maybe a bit more choice/option of being able to add into the book a bit more of a personal touch from the customer about the person the book is being made for. The book is great for facts about the year and date the person was born etc but the only personal things about the recipient is 1 picture, name on front & front page & personal greeting from the sender with only a limited number of characters to be used and lastly the recipients name appears on the odd page throughout the book. The book is called “The book about you” so I feel that the customer should have some more options to actually add facts & or pictures about the person the book is being made for however even though I have made these suggestions I am very happy about the purchase and is a nice little keepsake (even if a bit too expensive for what it is).

I was a little sceptical at first with it being so simple to order and the very reasonable cost of it but when it arrived I was amazed the product is brilliant much better than I ever imagined would highly recommend this and I already have to many people very pleased with this purchase.
Great product but shocking customer service. Ordered newspaper and puzzle book at the beginning of the month. Straight after ordering I noticed a mistake with the wording on the certificate. No option to amend order, as it was out of hours so I used their contact form to ask for the issue to be sorted prior to dispatch. Product arrived 4 days later and the issue had not been fixed. A whole 12 days after I initially got in contact I received an email stating that since my order has been dispatched they could not rectify it. If I was asking for a whole replacement order then fair enough but I was only asking for the wording to be changed on the A5 certificate. I was going to order some other products however with the poor customer service I've received I'll look elsewhere.
