Website was easy to use, goods arrived spot on, nice little package with the certificates in but whilst I understand that not all star's are bright and shiny I was a little disappointed in the star on the key-ring which did look like it had spent a few hundred years floating round the galaxy, I was hoping for a nice shiny star for my friends son on his christening
I did not know what to get for my husbands Ruby wedding present and a friend said buy a star! so I tracted on the nett and found this company and such a STAR find it was. I had no problems whatsoever my certificates etc arrived the next day. I would have no hesitation of using them or recommending them.
Posted very quickly is a very stuff cardboard envelope so the contents was kept clean and straight, you get information on what star u have chosen and the certificate comes with a wax seal which is a nice touch. the paper quality is great, nice classy feel but the print quality could have been a little better, some words were a bit blurry and the signature at the bottom clearly looked like it had been printed. maybe mine was a one off and the ink cartridge was running low but I think it could have been sharper but overall the certificate and the info pack it comes in looks great.
I was after a special Pearl Anniversary gift for my parents,and came across this,once looking threw all options and making my choice i placed my order,simple,quick and easy..
delivery was quick and packaging..when opening up i was not disappointed..
i gave it my parents on the day and to say gobsmacked would put it lightly,they was overwhelmed with the whole package,couldnt believe it.so to my this was the perfect buy,it was presented well,packaged well,they love the paper weight,an documentation,certificate everything...so Thank you very much.
Great product, lovely presentation. Delivered really quickly.
One bug bear, the postage and packing was not clear. Only found out the cost when you had decided on your product and then had no option but special delivery.
This gift was purchased for a friend who lost her baby daughter, she will love it and cherish it for years to come! I ordered online but also spoke to your customer services who were very helpful and friendly. The gift pack was dispatched very fast - thank you so much
Perfect christening gift the parents loved it, was delivered straight away, definately would use again, brilliant service
We purchased this star, to mourn the loss of our baby boy, i am a mother of four children so i am sure you can understand money is tight, so to pay £50 for something you expect quality, i was disappointed with the overall product. the packaging was excessive for what it was,the the certificate was poor quality and the frame was poorly fitted, and the engraving on the paperweight was shallow and heard to read . If i had known what the quality would of been like i would of most certainly bought the cheapest option instead of falling for the sales pitch and paying more for added so called "luxury extras".
Myself and my partner and were looking for the perfect gift to give his father and the best way to remember his mum who is sadly no longer with us. The name a star fitted in perfectly and lets us memorialise his mum in something that will last a lifetime and beyond. Thank you for making it do easy to purchase this gift and thank you for helping make our day even more special. I will definitely be recommending the site to anyone who wants to name a star and also will be using again in the future.
I didn't feel this star registration product was worth the money paid.
Firstly, the star I registered was part of the Canis Minor constellation. But when the pack arrived it contained errors in the paperwork - the registration certificate said Canis MAJOR, not Minor, while the cover note said Minor. This was awkward as this product was a present and I had to get the certificate replaced.
Secondly, a CD is included with some star-finding software. But there are no instructions provided on how to find 'your' star which has been purchased. The software's own instructions are unclear and I was unable to work out how to enter the star's co-ordinates in a way that enables you to find it via the software and then in the night sky.
Basically, a bit of extra effort on behalf of the company in terms of a simple, step-by-step guide to finding your star is needed, otherwise the whole pack is pretty useless.
I bought a star for my boyfriend for his 21st as I had no idea what to get him!! He loved it and is such a unique gift!!! So happy with it!! I got him the silver pack and the paper weight is fabulous!! A great piece !!
I found this service brilliant! The ordering, and receiving of the documents were both simple and fast. The receiver of this gift especially loved the certificate and the old fashioned style of the papers. Already planning the next gift!
everything promised was recieved, however I tried to contact the company as I needed help but there was never any answer! I ended up buying another gift and not giving the star! :o(
I named a star after my nan when she died in February 2012, I used Universal Star Registry as it was one of the first sites that came up in my web search.
The certificates were lovely, although £5 per extra one I thought was a complete rip off.
The CD ROM thing that came with the certificates didn't work so was a complete waste of time and the seat didn't come with anything else. Overall I thought it was totally over priced and took advantage of peoples good nature in wanting to remember loved ones.
I bought my husband a star gift set a few years ago from another online retailer which was much better value for money.
I wouldn't recommend Universal Star Registry at all and I would suggest giving them a miss and using someone who actually provides you with something of value for your money!
I registered a star for a little girl i know, to celebrate her Christening and first birthday. I wanted to get her something unique and this was a lovely gift that she can keep forever. I selected the bronze package which included a certificate and an engraved keyring. Super speedy delivery, ordered on a Thursday night and it arrived Saturday morning.
The only trouble I had was when I wanted to log in to the website to review my order, my username, password and reference number were not been recognised by the website. I emailed customer services to see if there was anything I could do and how my order was.
I received an email back in about 30 minutes saying the numbers I had were correct so they couldn't think why it wasn't working but they said my order was been processed and should be sent the next day. It was and I received it a couple of days later.
I had no other problems and was very impressed with their quick response.
the set was package nicely and the certificate looked expensive. It came quickly and was exactly what i had hoped for. i only wish it contained a picture or a star wheel or something to make the star more real.
The star package purchased was sent on time to the right destination well wrapped as promised!
Ordered this for my Girlfriends 21st birthday and was delighted with the speedy delivery and quality of the product.
Everything arrived as described, and in perfect condition.
Would certainly buy again, and recommend.
Even though the certificate is nicely presented and everything arrived ontime and well looked after, I couldn't help but feel I had paid a lot more money then I thought necessary. I may be missing the fact that I had just named a star after someone however, and people may loook at it differently. The CD I found really complicated to work and couldn't even get anything to happen from it. It was just full of loose files which wouldn't open enless some complicated procedure was done first. When contacting the company about this through email, the reply was very blunt and didn't help in the slightest, so I don't knoow if I was missing a whole loads more of information. I only give this three stars because even though the problems mentioned here were quite big, the range and quality of what did arrive, and the relatively quick delivery with nice presentation made up for half of the bigger let downs.
I bought a name a star for my girlfriend, I was a little worried she would think it was dumb, she actually cried and said it was the best present she ever had. I was happy with the service, everything was perfect, no problems at all and would honestly recommend it to anyone... Thankyou... U made me look like an amazing man lol :-D
Universal star registry staff were very helpful when I had a question regarding a potential order. They were efficient, knowledgable and polite. The gift was well received by its recipient.
I bought the package for friends' silver wedding anniversary and they LOVED IT. The silver 'star' was a special reminder that they will name one in the LEO contellation.
The ONE mis-hap was the length of time it took to be sent to me.....two weeks!
I ordered one of their packages for international delivery. The price charged (including delviery) was the best amongst a host of other websites providing similar offerings. The product reached within the delivery estimates provided by their staff, and was in perfect condition. The gift was really appreciated and would not hesitate a bit in recommending this company.
The star packages offered are an amazing gift for any situation. I bought this package as a memory to somebody and it is a lovely way to remember her. In this type of situation the star package brought great happiness to everybody to thing that she is never gone. She is in the sky looking down on us.
