Help / FAQ

How long does it take to get my book?

Each book is unique and made to order but it is still a fast process! Once an order is placed and confirmed, it takes 2-3 days to produce a softback book and 3-4 days for a hardback version. The shipping then depends on the shipping method you choose which can range between 24h/48h in the UK, 3-5 working days for Europe and 5-7 days for the US and other countries.

Do I need a PayPal account?

No you don't. We use PayPal as a payment provider and you will be redirected during the checkout process, however you can select to pay with your credit / debit card and you are under no obligation to create a PayPal account.
