We’re sorry but because we rely on Australia Post for shipping we cannot control the arrival time of your order. No estimated arrival date is guaranteed.

People use all kinds of spelling variations for names, so it is impossible for us to know if it is a mistake or just different. So please ensure spelling is checked before you complete your order.

If you have made a mistake you have 1 day after the approval of your purchase to communicate with us. After the book has been sent to print we will not be able to make any changes or offer a refund for any user errors. Please contact us.

Due to the made-to-order nature of our products, you cannot return your order, unless the problem is a manufacturing issue.

Images viewed on your devices such as computers and phones are illuminated with a blue backlight. This backlight nullifies some red tones, and can also make photos appear brighter than they will print. Printed photos do not benefit from any backlighting so may appear different to how you see them on your screen.

We cannot offer refunds for orders that are printed true to file. However if a reprint will help your order we are more than happy to help you troubleshoot to ensure that a new order will print better and offer your a discounted price for the re-print.

Ask family and friends to send you a photograph (we prefer vertical/portrait format) for your book.

Reluctance? Stalk family and friends on Facebook for a suitable photograph.

No luck? Scan or take a photo of an old photograph.

Remember: The better the quality of the photo the better the quality of the print. If we feel there is a problem with the quality, crop or size we will contact you by phone or email before we print your book.

What images work well?

We prefer portrait/vertical photos as they allow for maximum use of the space. Ideally the image will focus on the faces making them as clear as possible.

How do I use a physical photo?

A couple of ways – you can get it scanned at 300+ dpi and upload as normal or, take a photo of the photo making sure there is no shadows or glare or, send them to us using registered post and we’ll return them with your book.
