What is the best way to stick photos into the journals?
We use Sticky Dots/Glue Dots which can be purchased from Officeworks. We have been using these for years and all photos have remained securely in place.
Can my journal be personalised?
At the moment, we don't offer personalisation. Due to current manufacturing and supply chain delays we have made a conscious decision to not offer personalisation as we want to solely focus on getting our core product out as quickly as possible.
I want to purchase some School Years Journals but my child doesn't start school for another 2 years, are the years pre-printed?
That's fine! The years (ie. 2022, 2023) are not pre-printed in the journals. You will write the years in yourself, so it doesn't matter if your child is already at school or not starting until 2025!
Where are you based and can I collect my order?
We are based in Melbourne, Victoria. Unfortunately we cannot offer pickup as our orders are dispatched from a residential address and we don't have the insurance to allow us to offer this service. However, all orders are dispatched within 48 hours (excluding pre-orders) and we offer an express post option. If you need your order SUPER urgently please reach out and we will do our best to get it in the mail same day.
In the state I live in, we don't refer to the 1st year of Primary School as something different to other states, can I change it?
Weirdly, it seems as though each state in Australia refers to the first year of Primary School as something different (ie. Prep, Foundation, Kindy etc). In an attempt to cater for everyone we refer to first year of Primary School as "First Year of Primary School". The book then goes from Grade 1 to Year 12.
Please also note, the cover of the journal now says "Primary School to Secondary School"
