I live in Australia and I purchased a gift from Central Crafts. I recieved my purchase within a week and it was exactly as I it was described and shown on the Internet. I was able to track my parcel the whole way through fedex. Im extremely happy and surprised how easy it was to buy from Central Crafts and wouldn't hesitate to buy from them again.
The 'rustic' leatherbound photo album is excellent quality, nicely presented in a gift box, and will make a wonderful present for my nephew, who's going travelling round the Far East. Plus the courier service that delivered it was, frankly, the best I've ever experienced.. not only was I given a one-hour window (unheard of) but I was able to track 'Kevin' the courier around town online, as he worked his way round to me! Seriously good service... thank you!
My first time ordering from this company. Unfortunately when I originally received my order the Mug I had ordered was cracked, however I have to say I was very impressed with the immediate response I received from Alex regarding my Mug. They took care of everything and I didn't have to go through a long drawn out process. Initially I was worried being that it was an International transaction. They professionally took care of the issue and sent out a replacement, and I received in less than 48 hours. The Mug looks exactly identical to the picture. It looks handcrafted and of a higher quality of product. I will definitely be doing more business with them in the future. I'm very please with the service I received. Thanks again.
Amazingly fast delivery and very well packed product (excelent for a present). With the overall transaction I felt secure in a sense that central crafts are professionals and whatever problem might occur it will be dealt with in such a manner. I was not disappointed! The product (Enya black leather journal 15cm x 20cm) was exactly as described, with a a soft well crafted leather and high quality cotton pages which don't bleed when writting with a fountain pen!!! The stiching of the pages is in such a way that the journal will lay almost flat from start to end, which makes writting experience a real joy. The size is also perfect (at least for my needs) almost A5, small enough to carry around and big enough to your thoughts/sketches comfortably. It is just perfect!! I am really considering of purchasing another one and I would certainly recommend it to anyone.
I ordered a photo album in the Flaura design for my son's girlfriend as a birthday present as I wanted something a "little different". It did not disappoint - it is absolutely beautiful and worth the little extra for the presentation box. It is also packaged in a very nice cotton bag to keep it nice. I would highly recommend this company and will be back for sure!
When looking through the website I was impressed with the variety of quality products beautifully made at reasonable prices.
I was looking for a unique and special wedding album and I found it. I liked that I could add pages, choose self adhesive or plain pages, black or white pages and matching boxes to keep it safe if I wanted.
My item arrived swiftly carefully packaged. Highly recommend and will be returning myself in the future :-)
I ordered a mug for my friend whose birthday is in late November and assumed that, since it was shipped from the UK and I live in the US, it would be at least a few weeks before it arrived (somewhere closer to her special day)--but two days later it showed up at my house! The shipping is magnificent and the product was so gorgeous and well crafted. I would recommend CentralCrafts to anyone!
I've ordered two products from this company to date, one our wedding album (dragon embossed wood cover) and just recently a leather bound imprinted journal and both are absolutely stunning.
I didn't realise but when I bought the journal I had accidentally asked for a personalised front cover but not put in any text! Within a few hours, the customer support team had emailed me to check if I wanted to add this text and when I said no, they immediately refunded the extra money I'd paid for this and the journal itself was delivered the next day.
I always come here first when I'm looking for something beautiful and unique for a gift and I'm very chuffed that the company I bought from 3 years ago still has the same care & attention & quality of product with my purchase this year.
I purchased one of your Medium Dark Dragon Photo Album for a gift for my husband on our wedding day. I was making a book out of autographed pictures of his favourite TV & Film actors/muscians etc that I had been secretly collecting for over 2 years and I wanted to get them bound but thought a photoalbum would be better incase he wanted the choice of easily removing them from the album and framing them. The album arrived and was far more elaborate than I expected given the impression I got from the picture on site and my sister said when she first saw it, that it looked like an ancient book that had just been discovered and was almost nervous opening it as it looked so precious and mystical. I had never seen anything like it and I chose the black removable pages which really made my autographed pictures pop! I was amazed at how well it turned out and the best- man caught my now-husband's reaction on video the morning of the wedding when he opened it and it was one of bewilderment and confusion at first and on opening it was blown away. After the wedding all he did was tell everyone who'd listen to him to come to our hotel room to look at the gift. Everyone was amazed with the album and had never seen anything quite like it. It gave my gift that wow factor that a regular store bought photoalbum just could not have competed with! Thanks for adding even more wow to a day/week filled with many wows!! 5 star service also when I asked questions about the pages and if they were acid-free. I want this book to last for ever with the intention of adding more pictures to it. While it seemed a little more expensive than what I originally wanted to pay I thought, I've put 2 years worth of work into collecting pictures and it wasn't just any old gift. I thought I'd splash out and I was so glad I did!! Would highly recommend this site and it's products. Just must find more reasons to buy products from you!! Keep up the amazing work and best of luck with the business! =o)
I'm a bride-to-be and fully feeling the pressure from all sides to make everything perfect while personally trying to remain true to who my fiance and I are in real life. A few weeks before our engagement party, I began searching for a guest book that fit our style and would be a part of our lives from the engagement party, through the showers, and to the wedding. We also wanted it to easily fit into our future together since we recognize and hope that our memories will be easily accessible after the wedding day. It quickly became apparent that guest books (in the States at least) are only for signing 10 names to a page and throwing into a box afterwards.
Searching online, I found Central Crafts the Monday before the Saturday party. I fell in love with their delicate, hand-tied journals and knew that it would be perfect to document and celebrate our engagement and wedding. Unfortunately, I had no idea how to buy it in the UK and have it in TX in less than a week. Charlotte at Central Crafts had it delivered that Friday, and it was even more beautiful and unique than the photo online. We have used it as a "scrapbook/guest book" with our announcement and invitations pasted on pages throughout with the guests signatures of each event underneath the occasion title.
We have received so many compliments that I can't begin to relay them here. I am very grateful to Charlotte for the amazing customer service she provided and to Central Crafts as well for creating such a remarkable, beautiful and versatile journal.
I got this album to give to my grandsons' parents so they could see what a fantastic holiday we had with the boys in Tanzania. I wanted it to be special and it is - both to look and touch. They loved it.
Love the photo albums, so different to anything else you find anywhere, they have a hand-crafted feel, avoid all photo-album-look cliches and are perfect for housing your life experiences, particularly travel ones.
For 4 years, my husband and I were looking for the perfect wedding photo album. 4 years of marriage, and our wedding pictures were in a pile in a drawer, because we couldn't find a photo album that was worthy of hosting our pictures. I was particular about how the photos would be displayed, so I had already narrowed down my field dramatically by insisting on a photo album with self adhesive pages. I didn't exactly have a wide pool of options to choose from, until I came across Central Crafts. All of a sudden I had tons of options.
My husband and I fell in love with a white handmade photo album with large white flowers. We got over excited and ordered the jumbo size with all the extra pages. I remember that it was delivered so quickly, we were extremely surprised since this was an international shipment (we live in the USA). When we received it though, we were shocked by the size, and even though the sizes are on the website, I guess I still hadn't expected it to be that big. I contacted customer service, and they were absolutely wonderful. I returned the photo album that I bought, and I was refunded my money, and I immediately placed an order for a smaller size. We received it again in such a short amount of time, we realized the first time was NOT a fluke. This is just how good Central Crafts are. I am so happy with my wedding album, I couldn't have possibly come up with a more beautiful or more unique album. Married over 6 years, and we still bust it out for our friends, and we get the biggest compliments about the album, and the beautiful box it comes in. I truly couldn't be happier with this company and their product.
I've purchased a number of items from CentralCrafts and every time I have been delighted with their products and their service.
The albums and handmade papers are simply superb - real WOW! factor and perfect when looking for that gift that is just that little bit different and unique.
EXCELLENT! Would highly recommend.
That's the best mug I've ever had! I've never saw a mug with so high quality in details. It's amazing, so perfect! I really recommend to all people that loves music: buy it!! Thank you so much for providing these wonderfull products!!
Ordered a very well made, hand crafted wedding photo album from CentralCrafts.com. The album is beautiful, greatly appreciated by my new sister in law, very quick, safely packaged delivery. On contacting CentralCrafts.com they gave me very good, friendly advice on buying and fitting extra pages.
I needed something in which to keep a written record of my children's preschool lives. I bought several journals and a few photo albums over a 5 to 6 year period and they are simply beautiful and unique. The photo albums were filled with photos of the girls and given to grandparents as gifts. There simply was no other product capable of complementing what one very proud father considers perfection!
