Reception

We go above and beyond to make sure that your photo books are perfect. We take two to three working days to proofread your text and to optimise the quality of the photo book cover as part of our complimentary retouching service, (including manual retouching for your cover photo and automatic retouching for the remaining photos). If we believe that we cannot guarantee our usual high-quality printing because your cover photo is not of a high enough quality, then we will get in touch to see if you can provide an alternative image. Make sure that you keep an eye on your emails just in case!

We produce each of our photo books with a great level of care! We need two to three days to print, bind and condition your photo book before sending it out. Please note that for larger photo books and our medium landscape photo books this can take up to five working days. We will send you tracking details for your parcel, once your photo book has left our printing studio. Delivery time will depend on the delivery method you choose from the options below and whether or not customs charges apply to your order.

Do you need to pay VAT and customs charges?

Countries outside of the European Union are not subject to VAT. You will benefit from a 20% reduction on the price of your order. You may, however, be required to pay customs taxes or fees upon delivery, which can affect delivery times.

Since the UK has left the European Union, the way that customers pay VAT has changed.

For orders under £135, VAT is paid when placing your order and no customs charges apply when your order arrives in the UK.

For orders over £135, you will benefit from a 20% VAT reduction on the total price of your order, but you will, however, be required to pay the VAT directly to HM Revenues & Customs prior to the delivery of your order, along with a handling fee of £12 for orders under £873 and £25 for orders over £873.
