A lovely book for cosy bedtime stories! Snuggle up and read a bedtime story with your little one - their very own bedtime story in fact, featuring all your own words and favourite photos... a truly special book telling their own unique story, and handmade just for them. In soft deep blue and featuring lots of stars and sleepy sheep, this gorgeous book will help your little one to drift off to sleep and will become a favourite book for their bedtime routine. Personalised with your own wording throughout, including a special message on the outside back cover. The design requires 11 photos: 10 for the inside pages, plus one for the outside front cover.

"Just to let you know I received the book today. It is absolutely beautiful and I can’t wait to give it to my grandson... I will definitely be back to buy another one."

HOW TO ORDER: This is where the fun really starts and you begin to design your book! Have a pen and paper handy... View all the pages of the book in close up by clicking on the first picture of the gallery above. As you flick through the pages decide which of your photos you would like to appear on which page, jotting down the text you'd like to appear with that photo (max 60 characters per page). It doesn't matter if your photos are portrait or landscape format as the artwork for each page will be adapted individually to suit your photos. Please read the information below regarding how to choose the right photos. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.

About the wording: You can write your own text for each page - you can even give the book your own title. Each page is limited to 60 characters. The books all use a natural, clear font similar to that used in schools due to its clarity and the fact that the letter 'a' for example is written in a natural way.

About the photos: You will need 11 photos in total, and they should be at least 50kb in size but no larger than 2MB. Your photos should be saved in JPEG format, and nice and clear. Please save the photos titled with your surname and the corresponding page number you would like it to appear on: for example "Smith front" for the front cover, "Smith 1" for page 1, and so on.

  • The Front Cover: The front cover photo will be cropped to a circle shape, quite tightly around the subject (resolution and photo layout permitting). You are welcome to send me the original photo and I'll crop it for you, or you can crop it to a square shape ready for me to crop further into a circle.
  • The Inside Pages: The frames on the remaining inside pages of the books are 3x2 ratio. You can either crop your remaining 10 photos to this ratio before sending them to me (ideally working to 9cm x 6cm size), or you can send them as they are and your photo will be cropped for you as it is felt best suits the photo.

Use the images shown below to keep track of how your photos will be ordered:

£28.95, including UK delivery


If your photos are a different orientation to those shown on the sample pages (eg, if you want a portrait photo on a page that shows a landscape photo in the sample book above) that's not a problem - the artwork is created to order each time just for you and will be adapted to suit your own photos.

If your photos are too big to meet the maximum 2MB size, and you don't have software on your computer or device to resize them, you can use a free image resizer website such as picresize.com. If you need to rename your photos you can name them on picresize after you have resized them - simply click on the 'save to disk' button and title your photo with your surname and the page number.

Unfortunately if your photos are smaller than 50kb I won't be able to use them for your book - the print quality is unlikely to be good enough and your photo will look pixellated.

It usually takes 5 working days to design and make your book. Standard free UK delivery will take 3-5 working days. If you need faster delivery you can upgrade to Tracked 24 delivery which takes approx 1-2 working days, or Next Day Delivery (Monday-Friday). Delivery overseas takes approximately 3-7 working days.

Yes, I'm more than happy to use your own artwork. Please get in touch to discuss what you have in mind.

Yes, you can! The standard books have 12 pages (6 leaves), and you can add extra leaves up to a maximum total of 12 (giving 24 pages). Adding an extra leaf gives you 2 extra pages each time. Each leaf would cost an additional £3.50 – so, for example, if you wanted a 10 leaf (20 page) book the cost would be £28.95 + £14 (eg, £3.50 x4) = £42.95. If you would like to add extra pages please contact me to let me know as I'll need to take your order manually via email rather than through the website.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch!
