Bought this as a gift for my husband for his first father's day. Something for him and my son to enjoy together,rather than another trinket that would get shoved away in a wardrobe

Helpful and smart management team👍

I ordered a football book for my husband’s Christmas gift. It arrived very fast and good quality of the book, just as described and present a beautiful box, although I forgot to select an option for the emboss charges of the front cover. Management team is very efficient and in resolve the problem very quickly, eventually they’re turning onto the satisfaction, can’t ask for more and thank you again for their kindness help. I am sure my husband would love this Christmas 🎅 gift. Excellent service and I will buy more again. 👍😊

Not what I expected

If I could give them a lower score I would. I got a couple of personalised books and one never even had my sons name in as it used the characters surname all the way through. This is not made clear enough that if you pick this book the name isn’t used. In my daughters book there was also lots of mistakes, customer service came across as if they didn’t really care and I was told I could not return the item as it’s personalised, even though it is not what I wanted or expected and I have to now buy elsewhere. I thought for the company to rectify this would of been so simple but I think they just want your money and don’t care much after the sale even though errors were made by the company who added the personalisation which was nothing to do with the information I entered.

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    From the communication that was provided by our Customer Service Team, it was explained that with all the Classic Books, it is only the first name of the character that is changed. This is due to copyright and the licensing that we have. We are not able to amend the story in any other way. As we can only change the character’s first name, we do provide this information within the product information. We do apologise if this was missed at the time of ordering. As you have ordered the Christmas Carol Novel, the main character of Ebenezer Scrooge is referred to a lot throughout the book as the surname, therefore this will not be changed.

    In regards to the Alice in Wonderland Book, your book is printed as it has been typed on the website. From your order details we can see that you have added additional information to the names. To make it as clear as possible, we have put an example under each character when personalising to show that we only need the name, however you had added Queen or King. This is something that will get printed.

    As each book is bespoke and made to order, unfortunately if a customer has made an error, they are not able to be returned for a refund.

    Looking at your order details, your books have been printed as you have requested them.

    Please accept our apologies for any inconvenienced caused.

    Kindest Regards
    The In The Book Team

Bought a the personalised Disney princess book for a friends 2 girls. I was blown away with the quality of the book and the lovely little touches, like their names at the top of every page. The delivery was quick and it came in a lovely white Disney box. Would 100% recommend and will look to buy from here again. Thank you.

You get what you pay for.

The book I ordered arrived quickly. The presentation box is very nice but the pages and photos seem really cheap and poor quality. It’s a present for my son in law and I will feel a bit embarrassed giving it him. I thought the pages would have been on firmer paper rather than a copy of a newspaper report. It wasn’t expensive and a bit different so ok as a stocking filler but not a main present. I WISH TO APOLOGISE for my negative review. My son in law is absolutely delighted with his book and thought the paper used added to the character of the book. Thank you.

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    All the coverage for this book are photos of your requested team, taken from news reports and are printed in their original greyscale condition.

    In regards to the paper quality, the paper that we use for all our books is 80gsm BioTop, which is high quality printing paper.

    Please accept our apologies for any inconvenienced caused.
