Q My son is on the bench and may not play at all, but if he does play I would like a book should I order?
A: Yes order and then cancel if it does not work out. Its easy to find the big ball carries, the backs, but it’s the hard to find players that is our benchmark. The Substitute hooker, props, second rows, players on the bench. These are the players we work the hardest for. Please check our samples, it’s the hard to find players we use as sample books. Easy books like Gary Ringrose well they are easy. You can always cancel and get a refund. At least we will have tried.
Q Do I have to select the photos ?
A: Yes. It’s the client's responsibility to make the selection. You have 3 months from the last match to make a selection. Just click the Hearts on all the photos of your player, we will check the selection, add any that were not up loaded to the web site and work with the best.
Q Will you print without my approval?
A: We will email you a proof copy before printing for your review and approval. A client has 4 weeks to approve the proof or request a change, after that we will consider the proof approved and send for printing. We do send reminders but do not always receive reply’s.
Q. I would like two copies of my book, how do I order?
A. Once we have an approved proof we offer additional copies. Additional copies are half price + Shipping. Just reply to our email and let use know so we can arrange payment.
Q. What is the minimum number of photo needed to make a book ?
A. Books have 28 pages. Sometimes “Less is More” personally I like ~50 -70 photos for a book. But of those only 20 need be of the player of interest. Remember it is a Team sport! We have done great books with ust 12 photos, but no denying it, the more photos we have to work the better… (order early… please…)
Q. I got some good photo on my phone can I include them in the book?
A. Yes of course, Its your book , not ours. If you have just a few go ahead and email them to us, if you have loads we can set up a folder for you to up load them. But please do so BEFEORE we design your book. Sending in photos after the books designed means that we have to re do your book. So please keep this in mind.

Remember they will be around for a long time. We do not limit the time we work on a book, we work on it till its right. Proofing books does take time and we are dependent on the speed of response from clients as well as the number of open books we are dealing with at any one time. We do work as quickly as we can, but we can not predict how long a particular book will take.
