Anthony Trustpilot product review 5 star rating September 6 2020

This book is for an 80th Birthday present and is a marvellous walk down memory lane. Well preesented.

Wendy Birkett Trustpilot product review 5 star rating August 13 2020

This was a 70th birthday present and having read some reviews that said the quality of the reproduction wasn’t great I was a bit nervous - however I am delighted with the book. It is well produced, well packaged (I bought the gift box) and a wonderful gift. Some of the pages are not so clear to read but this is entirely in line with printing some of the older editions from a microfiche. Would highly recommend!

Will recommend this first class gift

Paula Gregory Trustpilot product review 4 star rating July 3 2020

Fabulously presented book, had one page where they had the wrong date but otherwise a thoroughly appreciated 80th birthday present

Steve Trustpilot product review 3 star rating May 22 2020

Difficult to get over enthusiastic about the gift book. Arrived in nice box with an attractive enough cover on book, which we had embossed.nHowever, to actually read SOME of the Daily Telegraph stories is difficult due to poor copy quality. In fact I would go as far to say some print is illegible. The front page copies are from some old black and white mirofiche records held and I know sixty years ago printing was a little behind where we are today but!! It wasn't cheap and here's hoping my sister still enjoys it.

Good quality book and presentation box. Some of the early pages are harder to read but we ordered back to the 30’s. Lovely present, would recommend

Great product, communication and quickly delivered.

Don't bother if it is for a special occasion - if anything is wrong with it, they are not interested and will not do anything about it nthey actually have nothing to do with the product - they are just a broker

    Thank you for your review.

    We are so sorry to hear this.

    We can see that you have been in contact with a member of the Customer Service team who explained that what you had received is correct. The Telegraph did not print newspapers on a Sunday until 1960 and some of your dates fell on a Sunday and so each year is not missed, the following date is put in the book.

    This product is our item that we produce at our production site, however we are licensed with the Telegraph to use their digital archives to be able to make this book.

    Once again, please do accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused.

    Hi
    i am sorry but that is not correct – i have it in writing from Yvette that you are nothing to do with the books that are produced
    it all is done externally by the newspapers and you have no quality control procedures in place as it is nothing to do with you
    i have asked for copies of all the illegible pages to be sent to me and Yvette has again said that i have to contact the paper direct as you have not control over it but has not provided any address or information on how to do that
    this was a disaster for an 80th Birthday and the repeated message i got from Yvette despite having to email many times before i even got a response was “it’s nothing to do with us , we have no way to quality control as we don’t produce the books ~” so if that is not the case then you should perhaps train your staff better and not have a catch it all answer of ” it isn’t our fault, we don’t have anything to do with it – hence my reference that you are no more than a broker – if you are now saying different then i have been misled/misinformed by your staff and i suggest you re-do my book properly and send it back out after proper quality control checks

Amanda Trustpilot product review 1 star rating May 6 2020

The product was fine other than historic newspapers sent a version with the wrong name, birth date and personal message engraved on it! Not much point in offering a personalised gift if you don’t put the right personalised details on it.

    Thank you for your review.

    We are so sorry to hear this.

    You are correct, we use microfiche copies taken directly from the newspaper company. We do try and clean up the copies as best as we can, however this is harder with older newspapers. Looking on the product information on the website, we do confirm about the quality issue.

    We do hope your relative likes the item upon receipt.
