Delighted with the quality and workmanship of this personalised birthday party book. It made our daughter's 18th birthday a more than memorable occasion. Thanks, Sue

Dottie Designs - How it all began....

Welcome to Dottie Designs! I work in my seaside studio in the South of England.

I spent over 20 years in the Armed Forces so came into my creative being in my 30's!

In 2005 I started making cards! I'm a perfectionist and I found it really hard to find that perfect card with the "just right" wording, so I started making them! Then I started selling them on line and in 12 shops! I loved making cards but it was never going to feed my children!

In 2008 I moved into making gifts which is where I am now! I love the fact that something I make will not only be used at a special occasion but will also be treasured for years as a keepsake.

I live 5 minutes walk from the beach which makes me very lucky and that's often where I head for inspiration (and also for ice cream!)

Items are handmade to order in my seaside studio in Hampshire, England. I aim to dispatch within 5 working days. Normally it is much quicker than this. Within the UK items are posted by First Class Royal Mail, and by airmail overseas. Price quoted for postage overseas is not a tracked service. You can upgrade this to a tracked service Airsure for an additional cost. - please convo me for additional posting quotation.

Whilst I aim to post asap, time to destination will depend upon the efficiencies of the Postal Services and this is beyond my control. Please ensure that you order in plenty of time if your item is required to be with you by a particular date.

All items are carefully wrapped and packaged to ensure that they get to you in perfect condition.

Personalised items cannot be returned unless they are faulty so please read the item description carefully to ensure that you are happy with what you are purchasing.
