Shipping is terrible. Ships from UK with NY number which is deceiving. No updates on tracking. Had to call during limited customer service hours to get it

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.
Book itself is great but is only suitable for white little boys which seems unfair. all well and good personalising the name but if your child is of a different race or gender to the illustration, the book is pointless. Feels like this needs to be made clearer on the website.
Customer services not very understanding and slow at responding.

I ordered a newspaper for my Dad’s 80th birthday - he was born on 7th January 1940.
When he opened the paper it was 8th January and also a Glasgow Herald which would be great for someone who lived in this area but not for someone who doesn’t.
I emailed the day after his birthday 8th January to enquire why this was and apart from an automatic reply to say I would be contacted, have heard nothing. Needless to say I am disappointed with the customer service I have received.

Book did not arrive when was advised of delivery timeframe. I sent email asking which courier would be delivering as was sent tracking number that did not link to any courier service or say who it would be to track! Response came 2 weeks later after book was delivered apologising for late response but she stated that it was fine because the book had been delivered!!! Shocking service, will not use the company again.

Well worth buying
The book was larger than I was led to believe. I thought I ordered A4 but it was slightly smaller than A3. It could have been my mistake. It was my understanding that it was going to contain reports about my team (Plymouth Argyle). What I found was there was also reports of different games that took place on the same day. It also included reports on rugby and cricket. They scanned the full page. I was disappointed at first, however, after reading part of the book I'm finding it very interesting. If you are a football fan and like reading other reports, then you will enjoy this book.

Have not received book yet
Have not received book yet. Original purchase said book would be dispatched 1/13 and delivery 1/15-1/17 . I called and questioned the time frame because I was willing to pay to expedite . They assured the dispatch date is not right because of their software but the shipping is correct. Still do not have it on 1/20 and will not have it in time for my Mom. They answer the phone in the UK with a NY number so ship from location is deceiving. They ship USPS partner which is slower and tracking is horrible. I had to call for tracking number, they do not update you. Customer Service is only open 8-noon ET. Really upset about this
