How to Personalise Your Book About You

Choose from two cover options: either the blue or orange version, both available in A4 softback or hardback. Then personalise the book with the recipient’s name of up to 25 characters over 1 line. The name will be embossed on the cover and featured throughout the book. Importantly: select the birth date – this will determine the book’s content and be embossed on the cover.

Include a special message of up to 80 characters over 2 lines, with 40 characters per line. This will appear on the opening title page. The hardback comes with a free gift box, while with the softback this is an additional charge.

As the title says it's a book all about you or about the person you have purchased the book for. It really is a unique present/gift that will guarantee to put a big smile on the face of the person receiving it.

Very pleased with the book but I did didn’t get the box that I paid for which is quite disappointing as the book was only £20 and then £5 for box et cetera order come to £33 you need to state your price is a bit better but very happy with the book thank you

RON REES Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 17 Aug 2019

Great service, good quality book, I am really pleased with the book.

Traci Thompson Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 14 Aug 2019

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).

Patting myself on the back with this gift

I ordered this as a gift for my husband, who is very interested in the second world war and has a small collection of objects from it. I’m very confident that he’ll love this gift as an addition to his collection

Lovely book

Lovely book. Well presented. Great gift would have given a 5 star if the writing wasn't so small. I could not read it. Even with my glasses on I struggled. I bought it for my brothers 60th birthday so I hope he has good eye sight.
