I ordered the christening book. When it arrived, it was absolutely beautiful. The only issue was that delivery was by Evri and it arrived late, but not Letterfests error. I did let them know. Then when it arrived the wrong year was printed … again this was my error as I had not checked the proof carefully before finally ordering! They were excellent reordering for me at a small additional charge, when I emailed them with the issue and correcting my mistake. This time delivery was Royal Mail so no issues. When I received it the second time my son noticed the godmother’s name was spelt incorrectly! On checking my original order I could see again my mistake.. I think it had been auto corrected and therefore I hadn’t realised. Moral of the story is … please make sure the details are correct! I am extremely impressed with their support and help. My son says it is a beautiful book to remember his sons christening as a keepsake.
Loved the book. Very original & well made. Delightful keepsake. Thank you.
