This year our Personalised Daddy and Me book was nominated for children’s product of the year and we are so chuffed that we won.

Product of the year

This is the second personalised children’s book we created and we were so pleased it was such a hit. Tom was the super talent behind the illustrations of the book and Wendy came up with the story and the design. It took months of creative designing/planning/brainstorming/illustrating to create the perfect tale so its great that all the hard work, blood, sweat and tears put into it has been recognised.
