Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to get it?

I can personalize your storybook right away and send it to the printer. The printer usually sends me a shipping notification one week after it is uploaded. I would expect it to take no more than 4 days to be shipped. It is shipped media mail through USPS.

Can I add more than one photo?

Sure. I can add photos all over the story if you would like!

What if the photo is blurry?

If the picture looks blurry, I will contact you. I can show you what it looks like and you can decide if you want to send it to me in a different format or if you want to give me a different photo.

I have a lot to say. Are you sure it can be as long as I want?

I am the creator so I have full access to the entire book. I can format it to fit one page or two. The dedication is fully customizable and I can work with you to make it look just right. In this case, I would have you approve it before I send it to the printer.

Sometimes books are folded into my mailbox. What if it is damaged?

These books are shipped in fantastic packaging! They come with hard cardboard on each side. No one can fold it…well maybe Superman can….

In the book, “You’re More Than My Teacher,” can you change the characters to look like my child?

No, sorry. My goal was to have a variety of people in the story. There are boys and girls, men and women, teachers and students, old people and young people and different ethnicities. It is a personalized book in that the messages, the name and the photos are unique, but it does not come with custom illustrations.

I need it in a hurry! Can you expedite delivery?

No, sorry. I can upload it quickly, the same day typically as the order is placed. I don’t have any control over the printing, shipping or delivery times. It’s worth the wait and it doesn’t take that long. I like to give it 2 weeks, but that is pretty conservative. In Amazon days, we want everything tomorrow. If you know you want it, I would encourage you to go ahead and order. You never know how many orders I will have and if there is an issue, having a little wiggle room is more comfortable anyway!

I live right next to the United States in Canada. Can you ship to Canada?

No, I don’t have any control over the shipping. The printer I use only ships to the United States.
