Shipping Information

No matter where you are in the world, we’ll make sure your order arrives on time. Storybooks have the power to transport your child to fantastical places, and a gift like this takes time when it’s specially made for your child. This means the time to make, personalize and bind the book by hand is factored into the shipping time.

Once you’ve chosen and personalized your gift, the actual shipping times and price will be shown during checkout.

  • Orders received before 11am, ordered on the day, are considered a full day of production. Orders received after 11am will then begin production the following day and be considered the first working day of production.
  • Some items require more time, from hand-bound covers to foil embossed covers. Please keep this in mind when ordering multiple items as some items may be dispatched and delivered separately. Unlike other companies, there are no additional charges involved in this.
