If your journal has been personalised, we will not be able to cancel the order.


Please allow an additional 1-2 business days for personalised journals (although we will do our best to get them out within 24 hours).

Our personalised journal monogramming service is available for all items shipped within Australia, New Zealand and internationally, but as the service is undertaken in Auckland, it will take longer to ship to Australia and the rest of the world. Please select the ‘Personalised’ shipping at checkout to Australia. Please do not select ‘free shipping’ for international orders with personalisation.

Our gold foil monograming is a hand created technique, and both placement and alignment will vary. Though we take the utmost care, we cannot guarantee exact positioning. Items will not be considered faulty if placement, alignment or angle varies.


Payment is via credit card processed through our merchants or internet banking (Account to Account) only.

You also agree to pay the delivery and handling fee – which are subject to change.

Who pays international Duties, Taxes and Customs Charges?

We cannot guarantee tax and duty fees will not be imposed when purchasing internationally. If this situation should arise, this is the sole responsibility of you as the receiver. Please contact your local customs authority for more information.

Returns – Please use a tracked courier

For all returns, we recommend using a traceable delivery method and taking note of your tracking number. A refund will always be less the actual cost of shipping. From time to time, we may offer free shipping or subsidised shipping, in which case this will be taken into account for the refund amount. If the book is damaged on its return journey to us, the carrier claim will be the responsibility of the sender.

Your refund will be credited to the original purchaser’s credit card or bank account or a voucher issued. Please note, card refunds may take up to 3 business days for your bank to complete, depending on their processing time. This can vary between card issuers.
