  • How do I order a personalised poster for my child?

    To order a personalised poster, you need to go through the following simple steps:

    1. First choose which poster(s) you want to personalise for your child. 

    2. Fill in all the fields with your child's information - including name, date of birth and colour and font on the poster. Remember to double check that everything is entered correctly.

    3. Click "Save and preview". Check that the information entered is correct and that you want it. If you find any errors in the information, you can return to the edit by clicking "Edit information". When everything looks fine, you can click "Add the poster to the basket".

    4. You will now be taken to the shopping cart. Here you can see your order overview and possibly add more products before accepting the terms and conditions and clicking "Checkout".

    5. The final step is to enter billing and delivery information, after which you click "For payment" to complete your order.

    As soon as your order is completed, you will receive an order confirmation and receipt from us by email. Here again, we encourage you to double-check that the information entered is correct so that no errors occur in your book. Please note that you have 1 hour to change your order before it goes into production, and that it will not be possible to make changes after this.

  • Is there any limit on the length of the child’s name?
  • There is a limit of 17 letters in the names of the characters. this is to prevent any design issues that may occur due to extremely long names.
  • Can I change the skin colour of the characters in the book?
    Yes - when ordering a book, you choose the skin and hair colour of each character. Thus, the illustrations will be quite unique for your child’s book.
  • In one of the fields for the book I have chosen, you suggest that I write the name of e.g. grandfather. My boy does not have any grandparents left – can I write another character into the story?
    Yes, unless it is specifically stated that it MUST be a grandfather who is part of the story, you can write e.g. an uncle, the neighbour, or an elderly friend of the child into the story.
  • What if I forget to fill in a field during the personalisation/ordering of the book – or if I write a wrong name etc.? 
    In that case, this information will be missing or incorrect in the book text, and the text will not make any sense! Therefore, it is very important that you enter the correct data in the required fields when ordering.
  • Can I be sure that no invoice etc. is enclosed in the package if I want to send the book directly to the child?
    All invoices, order confirmations, and other information with prices are only sent on email to the email address you entered when ordering the book.
  • How long will it take from order of the book to delivery?
    As a rule, we produce and ship the order within 5-7 working days. We will ship it by Royal Mail
