FAQs

Q: How much do your books cost?

The price of a book or box depends on the individual project, but as a rough guide, my books start at €200. This includes a design consultation in person or on Skype where we will discuss what style of piece you are looking for and also the budget you wish to work to. I will then do some rough sketches and once you are happy with the design, I will make your bespoke piece.

Q: How do I place my order?

Please visit the How to Order page and fill in the form. If you use Pinterest, you can also create a board of books you like and can share it with me. I will contact you within 2 working days to discuss what you have in mind.

Q: How long will it take to make my piece?

Once your order has been finalised and all the design elements agreed upon, it takes 4 weeks to complete.

Q: How can I pay?

I accept payment through Paypal.

Q: Do you have any ready-made books to buy?

I don’t have any ready-made books to buy off the shelf, but if there is a particular book on my site that you like, I can make you a similar one, no problem! This will also take 4 weeks to make.

Q: Are your products guaranteed?

Yes. Assuming you take good care of it, I proudly stand over any product I have created. All my materials – papers, pastes, glues and board – are acid-free and archival, ensuring that your book lasts a lifetime.

Q: I don’t live in Ireland – can I still order a book?

Yes! Ideally we can chat on Skype to discuss your unique book, or we can talk by phone or email.
