Good quality book, quick delivery. Would have been nice if you could change some of the names within the book, but great that the front cover is personalised and the inside front page.
The font size was not very good for a young child to read, it was too 'fussy',.
Also the child's name was not mentioned enough.

Not interested in full customer satisfaction
Uploading a photo on the inset of the book was one the features that made me purchase the book, but this did not upload as I found out when the book came through late! Slightly disappointed they didn’t offer a reprint as a goodwill gesture for full customer satisfaction. The book was one of a number of presents for a 5 year old. So seeing her pic on the book would have made all the difference

Purchased as a gift
Purchased as a gift. Delivered earlier than expected, it turned out to be an awesome addition to a true baseball fan’s collection. Embossing was perfect, book was exactly what we expected.
